NiceLabel EPM reports problems in the Registry


The Event viewer on the computer with EPM fills up quickly with error events coming from the ‘Application Popup'. Every 5 seconds a new error event is logged.

You receive the following message:

An I/O operation initiated by the Registry failed unrecoverably. The Registry could not read in, or write out, or flash, one of the files that contain the system's image of the Registry.


Based on the Microsoft Technet article the unrecoverable I/O error prevents the reading and writing to Registry. The user action should be restart the system.

Make sure the Label Services process logs on as Local System account:

  1. Open Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services.
  2. Locate Label Services, double click it.
  3. Go to Log On tab.
  4. Select the option Local System account. Click OK.
  5. Restart the service.

Make sure you use the latest available NiceLabel EPM version. A lot of internal optimizations and enhancements were implemented in builds after build
