[QUOTE=maineman;2162081]Hi Angel_Heart and welcome,
No, you’re not out any $. You actually bought the css version. It sounds as if you downloaded and installed the “wrong” application, not once, but twice.
Stay with me on this, it’ll be ok.
First off, save your registration key and stash it somwhere that’s safe…a floppy, a cd, a slave hdd, etc. It’s also a good idea to email it to yourself so it stays on an outside server like gmail, yahoo, etc.
Uninstall the Fab application that you have. I think you have installed not only the non-css version, but I think that somehow you may have installed the freeware version also…DVDFab HD Decrypter.
There are only 2 authorized sites to download the css versions.
…this site has the latest final release versions of Platinum, Gold, Fab Decrypter and DVD to Mobile.
Right here on cdf’s Fab subforum,
…here you can download the final release versions and also any Beta versions. They’re available as stickies at or near the top of the page.
DVDFab 184.108.40.206 Beta is out
Now here’s what happened.
You went to Fab.com and as you clicked on [B]Buy Now[/B], the link took you to DVDFab.net, which is where you actually have to make the purchase.
Problem is, Fab.net is also the host site for the non-css versions.
Fengtao needs to fix this since it’s confusing for folks…plenty of ppl have made the same mistake.
Also, I think you may have installed the freeware version since it has no burn engine and no utility to access one.
As you said, the trial version of Platinum that you had worked just fine.
BTW, your initial trial version is identical to the version that owners of Platinum install. The only difference is the reg key. You actually could have just double clicked on the email attachment and it would have activated your registration with the version you already had.[/QUOTE]
I had the same problem & was getting pissed thinking I was ripped off.
I followed your directions after maineman sent me here from another thread.
Thank you & maineman so much!
I have the correct version now.
It works fine!
All is right with my world now.
I agree Fengtao needs to fix this!
