Existence as you know it is over
Did you install the freeware version of fraps in the past? If you had installed the freeware version then it prevents the full version from working.
Yeah, uninstall the shareware <if you have it installed> then try it.
If it do not work then download the newest version which is 2.8.1 I think.
It should work Wink

yeah i uninstalled the current version i had and then did a search to completely remove all fraps files. Some files that are in my C:\Winows\Prefetch were not able to be deleted or seen if i took a look at the actual folder. So with those files on my PC i think i'm screwed right?

I got this from an anonymous source:

1. Download Regmon, it is free and very handy. Also works great for doing full manual registry uninstalls for software and games.

2. Now, run regmon then start fraps. A little timer will show up to say fraps is loading but it never does. As soon as that timer changes back to the normal mouse pointer, go back in to egmon and hit CTRL+E. This stops anymore entires appearing in regmon.

3. Now, search for a list of entries which look like this...


You may want to search your registry for this fisr however {7D028A55-8EDE-2854-1EFE-4D6FAC5A7AB8} seeing the folder name may be the same across all systems. If you cant find it doing a registry search then continue on.

4. Once you find a list of entries that look like the above, simply highlight one of the entries and click the registry icon on the top of regmon. That will open up regedit and take you to that folder registry folder you highlighted.

5. Now, export a backup of your registry (just incase) and then delete the folder...

(" the folder should look like this if not the same: {7D028A55-8EDE-2854-1EFE-4D6FAC5A7AB8} ")

6. Now enjoy fraps in all its glory.

I did everything that thing said, but with one change. I couldn't find that same exact string but i found a string that was for fraps and used tha instead but it still doesnt work. I'm still tryin to use my v2.7.4, so would that make it come up with a diff. string than the one in the docment you had found? this is a major pain in the a**, sorry

Here's an alternate method:

-Delete Fraps from your system
-Download Regcleaner. A must have program to have anyway.
-After you have installed it, open the software and press control+f
-Search for Fraps
-Delete any entries you find for Fraps.
-Now install the full version. It will work!

If you're really, really desperate, you can wipe your hard drive clean (can't remember the exact word for that) and reinstall fraps. This should work 100%.

It is called "formatting" Smiley
I like me.
Actually, you've got to delete 2 keys from registry. One CLSID with lots of random letters inside. And one called "license" with 4 keys inside.

ps. In my case, you have to do this after every fraps restart.

I tried all methods in this thread, but still my brand new registered Fraps 2.8.1 is not working. Previously I had version 2.0.0, then 2.7.1 <- those were free and now I have registered 2.8.1 and it is not starting. Can someone please help me?
If you have a legally registered version of Fraps you're better off contacting Beepa software for help.
I tried it all with my new computer too and it didn't work, i just format and then it worked so no other choices but to format, I hope you got 2 HD.

Before this ones dies too fast, I have encountered this problem and a solution, but I'm researching it right now.

This problem does tend to happen when you have install the Demo first, then the Retail.

To get it work if you had the demo version earlier.

Delete the following keys in HKLM\Software\Licenses




You can use regedit for example to do this

Though it doesn't hurt to back your registry up first.
i tried all of the above and nothing worked, also wen i start fraps it appears again any ideas?
Unzip, and Import this into your registry: electronicfiles[dot]net/files/1851/fix.rar

(back up your registry first if you want)
I dont know a thing in computer but is this file look suspiscious?
That's because I want to try it to see if it work.
Pleaseee Grin
You can try it and it may work Smiley

It's pretty funny actually to see a thread here on SDA talking about how to get some software "working"... Grin
After search for hours to remove the keys that the trial version of fraps leaves behind, I decided to create a file that would make the proses a lot less painful, and time consuming.


readme.txt will walk you through removing the fraps registry keys.

If the link is broken email me at and I can send you the file.

Cheers ^_^
Formatting works 100 %, but this is not everyones choice.

It didn't worked for me......
Can't believe. Did you formatted every partition ?
I even formated 5 times BOTH HD.
I were formating......installing XP pro......install fraps.....don't work.....restart.

Anyway I found another program named ZD game recorder which work the same way as fraps.
