How to update WinOnCD (upon first installation) ?

Postby dodecahedron on Mon Feb 03, 2003 7:17 pm

a question for WinOnCD experts (Han?):

what is the correct upgrade procedure for WinOnCD 5 PE ?
i downloaded WOCSP505b.exe from roxio's site.
when i install WinOnCD 5, should i reboot and only then run the updater, or to do it before rebooting? or it doesn't matter ?
same question for the DirectCD updater WOC_DCD_Upd_5.3.2.exe ?
and the drive database uniDRV_1_15_0.exe ?

couldn't seem to find the answer on their website.

TIA!

another question:
you once said it wasn't possible to install only DirectCD, the installer looks for WinOnCD.
OK, so is it possible to install both and afterward to uninstall only WinOnCD?
(basically i'm interested just in DirectCD).

It shouldn't matter, but to be sure everything goes well, reboot before applying the update.

Same answer. :wink: Note that it's not necessary to install the included DirectCD. (DCD updater actually uninstalls the previous version.)

In order to keep DirectCD operational, WinOnCD must not be uninstalled. (You can uninstall it, but then DirectCD doesn't work anymore.)

The procedure is possible with Easy CD Creator, though. There you can install DCD only and apply the update...

thanks, Han.
the reason i asked was because i know that with Easy CD Creator, you're supposed to run the updater before rebooting (at least on WindowsXP if the original ECDC installer is an older version such as 5.1 that doesn't originally support WindowsXP).
i gather that WinOnCD 5 PE already supports WindowsXP so this isn't an issue.
