Updates/installation questions

Postby btiger on Tue Feb 22, 2005 2:40 am

My Sony burner came with Nero Full 6.6.0.1 and the last time when I did the updates to 6.6.0.3 (by DL the 6 pakages form Nero web), I saw Nero would first uninstalled the 6.6.0.1 before installing 6.6.0.3.

I am about to reformat my HD and I would like to know do I need to install the 6.6.0.1 first before doing the updates or can I simply just install the 6 pakages (6.6.0.3), I know the "KEY" form Nero Smart Start!

I format my HD once every 6 months and I notice that Nero releases updates quite frequently and I would like to know is there any way for me just to install the latest version (given I have the "KEY" ) without having to install the original 6.6.0.1 everytime I reformat my HD?

Thanks for your help in advance.

yes, you don't need to install your 'original' version.
just install the newest update from Nero's website, and when you first run it you'll get a dialog box asking for your serial key.

Interestingly I just got a larger hard drive and am reinstalled OS and applications as well.

I downloaded 6.6.0.8 and installed without using my original Ultra 6 disc and it never asked me for the serial number. I had to go back and enter the number after it was installed.

Is there any way to know if the product is actually activated?

When you install Nero 6 from a download off the website, it will not request a seraial key during installation. But the firs time you launch any program such as Nero Express, Nero Burning Rom, etc (Not Nero StartSmart) it will ask you to enter a serial key.

If you entered the serial key from the StartSmart, then that will enter it for all programs.
