Amazon Instant Video service Error 1002

Asked by Sebastian Lackner

This is just a short description how to get rid of error 1002, which can occur when trying to use Amazon Instant after upgrading from an old version of Pipelight.

Error 1002 is caused by the wininet override which was used as default in previous versions of Pipelight. To get rid of it just run (as regular user, while the browser is closed):

# NOTE: This shouldn't exist, unless you have created it manually
rm ~/.config/wine-wininet-installer.accept-license

# Clear wine prefix to trigger reinstallation of everything required
rm -rf ~/.wine-pipelight


Other important settings:

* Don't activate the Roblox plugin at the same time! This one requires the wininet override, and thus conflicts with Amazon Instant. We don't have a perfect solution for this problem yet, but hopefully we can get rid completely of the wininet override in the future. Currently its not possible to use Roblox and Amazon Instant at the same time

* Make sure you use Pipelight >= (current version is 0.2.5) and a relatively new version of wine-compholio / wine-silverlight. With older versions some other people experienced problems.

* Use Silverlight5.1, not an older version - based on my tests it only works well with the latest version.

* Make sure your user agent switcher is set to Firefox 15, as written in this FAQ:

* Clearing the browser cookies can also help sometimes.


Afterwards everything should work well! If you encounter any problems just open a separate question, and we'll try to help you fixing the problems.
