what i mean is, i prefer to use version 3(as do many people), but you are continually making advances in cloncd (drive support, new features etc) but these advances are only given in clonecd version 4. if it is easy to do , can you also have version four updates as well on your site. this is quite an audacious request, and feel free to refuse if it not easy to do, but if it is, can you do it please?
thanks for reading. [/B]
Well, I can understand that some people like CloneCD 3 better than 4 (some like even CloneCD 2 more than 3).
However, IMHO CloneCD 4 is really cool if you got used to it, and it is too much work to maintain two “CloneCD” products. We have a lot of much more interesting things in development and we simply don’t have the time and resources, and in the kong run I doubt the usefulness of this approach.
You can have CloneCD 3 & 4 installed at the same time, so you can benefit of some fixes in CloneCD 4 (like the new Tray Icon and driver fixes).
If you dare, do this:
1.) Install CloneCD 3 latest version.
2.) Goto Program Files\Elaborate Bytes
3.) Make a copy of CloneCD folder, name it CloneCD3
4.) Install CloneCD4 (which will uninstall CloneCD3)
6.) Create a shortcut to Program Files\Elaborate Bytes\CloneCD3\CloneCD.exe
Note that this trick isn’t “officially” supported, so don’t ask elby tech support if you mess up things. It is the cleanest method to have both versions installed.
