Windows 8 and "unregistered copy"

Postby Beer Hunter » Thu Jul 11, 2013 6:12 am

Hi,

I'm using a fully registered version (v2.4b) and about 50% of the time when starting DVB Dream it comes up with the evaluation / unregistered message where I have to wait for a few seconds before the application starts. It then automatically dies after an hour.
The other 50% of the time, it works fine.

I'm using Windows 8.

Is this an known issue?

Kev.

It sounds weird, if you dont need , try to disable UAC. and make sure any ant-spyware/anti-virus program doesnt interfere with DVB Dream. maybe something prevents DD to write to Windows Registry.

You might need to start DVB Dream with administrator rights each time. (right click on the icon, then "Run as Administrator")

If problem still continues, let me know your user ID in private message.

I have exactly the same problem with Windows 8.1
All I have to do is shut-down the app and restart and it's fine.
I will try running the program with administrator rights.
I'm running AVAST anti-virus and it is a pretty aggressive app.
I have tried removing DVB Dream and reinstalling, I'm running 2.6a but have had same problem with previous versions.

One licence per one computer is required. I have fixed the issue but be careful about multiple installations.
