So far some of the backup options just disappered when I put the ultra serial in. Why am I not surprised.
And nero vision express isn't working properly either. This is after I put the ultra serial in. Why am I not........ Never mind.
Hmmm, sorry to hear that, skypx. Like raydog1, my installation is behaving fine now with respect to the earlier problems I reported. I can burn an SVCD with NeroVision Express in either demo mode or with my license number installed. And the erroneous bit about Nero OEM is gone as well. My program folder is now labeled "Nero 6 Ultra Edition". I'm also not seeing the problem of missing StartSmart icons/options you described.
This time around I uninstalled all the 22.214.171.124 programs, then ran General Clean Tool (not just Clean Tool) and instructed it to remove all traces of all programs. After it finished and I rebooted, then I installed Burning ROM, Mix, and NeroVision Express (everything but InCD). Only after I installed everything did I enter my serial number.
My best guess regarding the awol StartSmart icons is that it has something to do, at least in general, with the same mechanism that works with the "Enable all recorder formats" option. I can see that you had this option set both with and without the serial number set, so it doesn't explain everything. However, one function of the little format options is to only display actions you can take with the given format. Apparently when you enter a serial number StartSmart thinks some activities are no longer available when you select the DVD format. What shows when you select CD as the format? And what happens when you uncheck the "Enable all recorder formats" option?
As for NeroVision Express not running at all, check the following registry keys:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Ahead\Nero - Burning Rom\Info
All three keys should each have three named values in them:
Make sure that all three named values are correct, and that all three are the same in each of the three keys. For example, if you registered Nero with User = Joe, Company = Home and Serial Number = xxx.yyy, then each of the three keys should have the following identical named values:
- Code: Select all
Name Type Data
Company REG_SZ Home
Serial6 REG_SZ xxx.yyy
User REG_SZ Joe
While I was looking up the names of the above keys, I saw that Ahead has included two keys for ShowTime:
(One with and one without the space). Didn't someone mention something about lack of attention to details earlier in this thread?
