Error: Access Violation in KMPlayer when playing a video

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi all,

KMPlayer hangs whenever I try playing a video. Then, after a while, this error message pops up:

"Access violation at address 0477867D in module 'gen_ml.dll_'. Read of address 00000028." 

I can't maximize or minimize the window and I am forced to wait until the pop up error window appears. Everything returns to normal after I click OK. 

This is totally irritating. This never happened in Window XP. I have the latest version and I really like this new media player because it works really well for me.

Please help.

Thanks.

When you attempt to play a file on KM player installed in Win 7, you get the error message "ACCESS VIOLATION AT ADDRESS 0477867D IN MODULE 'GEN_ML.DLL'. READ OF ADDRESS 00000028" as shown below:

 
ACCESS VIOLATION AT ADDRESS 0477867D IN MODULE 'GEN_ML.DLL'. READ OF ADDRESS 00000028

This error comes as a result of the player being unable to read the 'gen_mll.dll'. To enable the player to read this file, do the following:

  • Use the following code and save it as "GrantAdminFullControl.reg"

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*shellrunas]
@="Grant Admin Full Control"
"NoWorkingDirectory"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*shellrunascommand]
@="cmd.exe /c takeown /f "%1" && icacls "%1" /grant administrators:F"
"IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f "%1" && icacls "%1" /grant administrators:F"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTexefileshellrunas2]
@="Grant Admin Full Control"
"NoWorkingDirectory"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTexefileshellrunas2command]
@="cmd.exe /c takeown /f "%1" && icacls "%1" /grant administrators:F"
"IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f "%1" && icacls "%1" /grant administrators:F"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDirectoryshellrunas]
@="Grant Admin Full Control"
"NoWorkingDirectory"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDirectoryshellrunascommand]
@="cmd.exe /c takeown /f "%1" /r /d y && icacls "%1" /grant administrators:F /t"
"IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f "%1" /r /d y && icacls "%1" /grant administrators:F /t"

  • Double click "GrantAdminFullControl.reg" to merge it into registry.
  • Go to the KM Player installation folder e. g. " C:Program Files ".
  • Right click on "The KMPlayer" folder.
  • Click "Grant Admin Full Control".
  • This should solve the problem the next time u play a file with the Player.

Dear maxie,

Error: Access Violation in KMPlayer when playing a video?

Thanks for loving KMP player. You can solve your problem by two same process. Process one, find out the gen_ml.dll file from plugins folder and I recommend you to delete it if it is not necessary to you. Then install KMP player in a folder with admin rights.

Right click on file then click on properties and run KMP player with admin rights. I hope it will work. Another method is nothing but photocopy of previous one. If you want to try second one then install your operating system again and install your beloved KMP player.

Have a good luck.
