it so happened htat the C drive on my Vista PC died & the man from dell put in a new blank one tody & left me to reinstall everyting.
I thought this would be a rare opportunity to look for the install & registration problems that others have reported with v5 & vista
using version 22.214.171.124 ( which is the version on my other PC) , I ran the install OK, ( skipped the VSO burning engine install), clicked my Key, then launched the program.
because I had left the default check for updates box ticked, it immediately went online, told me that 126.96.36.199 existed, then generated a crash report. there was no way to actually run the program in order to get into options & turn that off. its was stuck in a loop of: program starts, checks for update, crash report screen, program closes.
this was a clean new vista home premium only installed today.
I outwitted the bug by disabling my internet connection, then getting into user options to disable updates. Now I don’t know if this has been fixed since, I just wanted to add my own test results to the knowledge base, before i go back to using the program on my XP machine instead.
PS. registration seemed to work fine, I’ll just check tomorrow that it is still registered to me when I power back on
