The other notebooks don’t get used for backups and don’t have AnyDVD installed , they are brand new Toshiba Vista OS that Management purchased and they are doing the job well and without glitches, thx to our well qualified software tech.
This Toshiba notebook that I am using to do backups is a year old, xpsp2 and has the licence for AnyDVD and Clone DVD that I printed out and also stored the key for them on a floppy. There is no one sharing my key as has been implied.
This is the only notebook being used for backups now. It is my personal hobby.
My colleagues have given up the backup of dvd’s and are now into using the Hauppauge units to backup their video library instead (out of frustration)and so they had the Software tech here at the Office remove AnyDVD as they don’t use it on the stored Toshiba xpsp2 models. I am the only one using the program.
Those notebooks like mine are in locked storage and have corporate security installed on them b/c of our profession. The last version that I installed was 126.96.36.199. and that was installed when NAV 2006 was on the notebook and the computer was checked over by our Tech and went into storage.
I just took it out of storage yesterday and the Tech installed the NAV 2007 days ago and tried to d/l the latest version of AnyDVD with NAV 2007 disabled and there was no success. So he tried, using the Uninstall and a Reg Clean, NAV 2007 disabled, clean install, keeping the Registration and doing a Reboot and he got the same results as me and so he reinstalled the 188.8.131.52 from the setup that is stored in a folder on my desktop and it works fine.
Our new Vista Toshibas are the ones used for work purposes and these others that are in storage are in the event that we need one in an emergency and our software tech is responsible for insuring that they are ready and updated for operation, even though they are Toshiba xpsp2 models.
There have been no updates to any of our operating programs or changes to security except for the NAV 2007 and that was disabled on mine when we attempted the install as mentioned earlier.
I am thinking about buying a Toshiba that still has xpsp2 on it for $1,700 here from our supplier and see if that notebook will work with AnyDVD.
A pricey way to go if I can’t find a solution. Then the purchase of Any DVD and Clone DVD again.
BTW, all of my colleagues here in the workplace have the bank books that paid for their keys and licences when the programs were used by them.
Previously, it was implied that we were sharing our keys!! LOL, so much for the integrity of accountants if we are in such financial dire straits that we have to do that!!!
Thankyou for your time.
BTW, yes a HJT was done and checked by our Tech and 2 others from the consultants offices that are affiliated with us.
