Hi,I need some advice please. I use a program called File Hippo Update Checker & recently downloaded a new version. On doing so,I clicked on the program icon to access & got this message: "Launch error 1156. An error occurred in sending the command to the application". I click "ok" on this message & the program launches as normal,but after using CCleaner & Advanced System Care & even uninstalling & re-installing File Hippo,the error message still appears.
I need to know if this error,(which may be in the registry???) is bad for my desktop pc,Windows 7,32bit & what I can to to resolve it?I'm very wary about downloading any registry repair tools,as I've read of some bad experiences,if that is the answer, unless someone can recommend a good,safe one.Will it matter if I just ignore the error message? Hope someone can help please.
Solved! Go to Solution.

If you do a Google search for "launch error 1156 file hippo" you'll find that this seems to be an issue that many users have experienced. An excellent substitute for the File Hippo program would be the well-respected Secunia Personal Software Inspector. I have not used the File Hippo Updater, but I do use, and often recommend the Secunia program for checking that all Microsoft and program patches are up-to-date. There is an online version, as well, if you would rather not install an app.
If you do try Secunia's PSI, you may want to avoid downloading the 3.0 Beta, and stick with version 2,x for reasons given here:
