Poivy Critical Error 3,0 Problem , please help!

Win XP
Presario 2100

Hello everyone! I am trying to run my poivy and I keep getting this error message: "Critical Error 3,0 - Unable to start the core engine, the application can not continue".

There doesn't seem to be any reason for it, this has been going on for over a month. I have tried the following things..

"First, back up! And then delete the contents of the following directories, including subdirectories):
C: \ Documents and Settings \ user-name \ Application Data \ Microsoft \ Crypto \ RSA \ (there should be a directory which looks like this: S-1-5-21-789085689-1013344182-1866953526-1045)"

"Here are the settings:

outbound proxy: port:5060
alt proxy: port:5060
user: user
pw: pw
stun: port: default

Here is the softphone dl url:

Otherwise I would suggest to fix the app error:

1. unintall poivy
2. reboot
3. get/install regcleaner
4. open app: tools->registry cleanup-> do them all
5. reset your xp crypto service
6. reboot
7. reinstall poivy

otherwise, here is some extended info on the xp cryptoapi (systemkeys, etc) ... S.85).aspx "

So far nothing has worked,I also cleaned my pc. I've ran crapcleaner, xoftspy and AVG as well.

I'd be grateful for any advice. Thankyou for your help, hope to hear from you soon!

Kind Regards,

Have you used the author's web site yet?

No answer!

Yes, I have written to their website several times and have received NO answer:( Anyone out there have any suggestions? There are no other error messages on my computer either, so it does appear to be confined to just this program.

That's not unheard of.

There are too many softwares out there with bugs in them. Since this one is not open source and the author is not answering all I can write is to find something else.

You need support and they don't have it.

I don't have the source so I can't look under the hood.

-> Time to move on.
