I try to use CPM (current release v1.2) but it seems that it doesn’t monitor any installation.
I’ve installed CPM on a fresh installed WinXP, only Comodo Firewall and Avira AntiVirus. After that I tried to install some applications. I’ve run the app’s installer by using the “… CPM …” menu item in its context menu. But every app is listed as “not monitored”.
Then I tried to install a game from CD-ROM but there’s no CPM entry in its context menu. So I installed it by double clicking “setup.exe”. But now the game is not listed in CPM at all, well it’s also not listed in the “programs” control panel.
I hope I made my problems clear enough and anybody can help me. Thanks in advance.
Please check if the drivers and service are running. You can do this in the CPM interface by going to the Drivers and Services menu and search for cumon, evdd, and COMODO Programs Manager Service. Make sure that the state of these three items is “Running”.
Also, there are some limitations for monitoring depending on the location from which the installer is launched. The “Install and monitor setup using CPM” option has not been implemented yet in the context menu for usage on network locations, optical drives, virtual image drives (.iso, .bin), so monitoring won’t always work with installers launched from these locations.
Yes, they are all running. I tried a new install after checking that, but still it’s not monitored. I wonder if an AntiVirus solution (Avira) or sandbox (Comodo Firewall) could be the reason.
Any further ideas?

For me it's most important that monitoring from removable drives and ISO images works. When is it supposed to be implemented?
Please create a log file of an install process using DebugView. To create a log file you have to download DebugView from this location: DebugView - Sysinternals | Microsoft Learn. After launching DebugView go to the “Capture” menu and select this option: “Capture Kernel”.
You can then install an application using the context menu option.
The functionality will be available in our next public release.
All drivers are running but CPM doesn’t seem to monitor anymore.
I installed also the explorer integration and used it a few times but even so, CPM doesn’t monitor any more. The software worked fine till yesterday.
188.8.131.52 is the current release version, not ancient. Not everyone wants to run known bugged software (and one shouldn’t on production systems).
Personally, I’ve had problems with 2.0 hanging, crashing on my test machine and never put it on my production machines. That was a while ago and I don’t remember the minor version; recently I’ve not had any problems and it picked up Steam installs nicely.
