    Every time I reset my AT&T Treo 750, I get an autorun error:

    "the file 'autorun' cannot be opened. Either it is not signed with a trusted certificate, or one of its components cannot be found. If the problem persists, try reinstalling or restoring this file."

    So I traced it down to this registry entry:

    HKLM\Comm\Autorun\Extended_ROM\autorun.exe

    In going through the forums, I see that it's trying to access the Extended_ROM partition.

    So I grab a tool to unhide the Extended_ROM partition and I see the following:

    - a folder called Partition
    - two files called CapPackage.PXP and CarrierDB.PXP

    I do not see a program called autorun.exe under the \Extended_ROM folder. So I go find the one that I used to install WM6 on this phone (it had WM5 on it before) and copy it to this folder using Total Commander. Do a reset and still get the error. The autorun.exe program is now gone from the \Extended_ROM folder.

    I do more research and see that it needs a config.txt with the CAB files to load. I create the file, place it and a copy of autorun.exe back in the \Extended_ROM folder, reset and come back.... same autorun error and now both files are gone.

    The error is driving me nuts. I see both PXP files are related to AT&T programs for the 750. It has already installed them, as they are listed under my Program menu.

    I've tried deleting the various registry entires related to the EXT_FLASHDRV under the two following registry keys:

    HKLM\System\StorageManager\AutoLoad

    and

    HKLM\System\StorageManager\Profiles\EXT_FLASHDRV

    But each time I do a reset, they come back and the autorun still errors out because it can't be found.

    I really don't care to have this keep running each time. It's almost as if it still there due to some cleanup that didn't get done when I did the WM6 update.

    Any help here would be appreciated.

    My gf's treo does the same thing.

    The pxp files are actually zip files. You can copy to your PC and rename the extension to zip to open and look at them.

    Once all that stuff is set up, you shouldn't have to hit it after a boot anymore. I'm going to guess that the autorun entry is a leftover from the initial setup. Again, this is a guess...

    In looking at my own registry under HKLM\Comm, I don't even have an autorun entry.

    Since the file it's referencing no longer exists on the extended Rom, it's probably safe to simply delete the autorun key. (HKLM\Comm\Autorun\Extended_ROM\autorun.exe)

    The other 2 keys you mentioned don't even reference the autorun file and most likely have nothing to do with the issue.

    As a matter of fact, this one (HKLM\System\StorageManager\Profiles\EXT_FLASHDRV) IS used and should NOT be deleted. Example, to make your extended flashdrive visible, all you have to do is change the "mounthidden" key under this entry from "1" to "0".

    I have tried to remove that registry entry, but each time I delete it, it gets recreated. My Software version is: TREO750-2.25-ATT. Firmware: 1.54.27.00


    I will have to do another search in the registry for autorun.exe to see what other entries it's listed in.

    I also took at look at those PXP files and what was in them and it's everything that's already installed on my phone.

    Hmm...

    Just found another thread where the user had the same problem and it cleared after he uninstalled ListPro.

    Also, do you have an SD card slotted?

    Actually, while you can certainly try uninstalling ListPro, the error you are describing doesn't sound like ListPro. What may have happened in the other case is that the little program that keeps track of alarm activations may have failed to start properly. In this case though it just doesn't look like the same thing.
