Updating Nero 7

vbimport

#1

Does anyone know if the the Nero 7.11.10.0 update requires that all prior updates be installed? It’s 388MB, so it is possible that it updates the prior version without regard to which updates may have been applied.


#2

Never mind, I guess. The version I got when I bought Nero was 7.0.1.4. When I installed the 7.11 update, Nero completely uninstalled the old version, and when it installed the new version, it said my serial number was out of date. That must mean that I am not entitled to update the 7.11. That seems strange. The question now is, should I update at all, and if so, to what level should I update?


#3

Unless you’re using hd or blu-ray your old version should be fine. Just reinstall. Any spesific reason for the upgrade ?


#4

Presumably updates have bug fixes. Sometimes they have new features.


#5

Agreed, but “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” unless you have spare time and money

As long as you have the full version of nero, you are entitled to ANY future updates. Not upgrades, but updates.

Even if you are an oem or essentials user, you are still entitled. Just remove old version, download new version, install and when it ask for serial click the link that says something like ‘find my serial’. It should prompt you to load the cd and should find it automatically.

You can also check the release notes to any new release, by going to support> downloads> software updates> nero 7 and clicking additional information link. Here a link to the release notes for the newly released update

I have version 7 of NERO ESSENTIAL with my DVD Writer. However, I noticed that the RECODE is only a Trial version that last for 30days. Apparently, I need to “buy” the upgrade to version 8 to continue using RECODE.

I also updated to the latest version 7.11, it too automatically uninstalled the previous version.

I copy and paste the serial number to the upgrade and it automatically download the new version and installed.

So far I have no problems using the latest version of Nero 7, but I wished that the RECODE could have also been included and not only TRIAL version. Looks like only RECODE that is in trial version, I assumed that other programs in the ESSENTIAL version are also trial, but I have not tried them.

Chow.
