Hello everybody...I am at my wits end here with this activation deal with the MPEG-2 codec. I have been on my computer with WINDOWS XP/SP3 for the past 6 hours trying everything I have read, here, and on the internet and yet I still cannot use the Create DVD function in the Roxio Creator & MyDVD 9.0 DE. When I tried the manual way I got nothing. I did not even see an 'ACTIVATE OFFLINE' window pop up....went straight to the warning window and when I clicked ok it shut down the application. Just last week it worked fine, but NOOOOOOOO...it doesn't want to work now.

I downloaded REVO, and did a fresh reinstall after with the startup disabled. I turned off Windows Firewall and turned off my virus protection which is Microsoft Security Essentials. I have nothing else that I can think of that would keep this from working. Please don't tell me I need to do a fresh Windows install.


What do I try next?


Thanks to anyone that can give me some direction here.
Gary

I can almost guarantee that you will not get a resolve from Dell.

And, Roxio shut down the manual option, to activate the software, years ago!

;)  I think that you already know what Dell will tell him.  It would be a first, if Dell actually did help him.

You are absolutely correct. Dell was no help. One response I recv'd was to install K-Lite codecs software and that didn't help...and I wasn't even sure how it should have been set up. I posted a several questions about how I should set it up to the responder and I got squat. I did a a clean uninstall of Roxio using REVOuninstallPRO trial version because the error I was getting said 'No Permission-Bad install'. So I will try to install it again to see if I can activate the issue.

Wish me luck fellows. I'll keep you posted if it works.

Did you explain to them why would I buy another Dell PC if what I bought last time doesn't work and Dell tech support is no help in fixing it? :blink: :wacko: :blink:

Thanks for letting us know what Dell did for you, Gary.  I hope that the process that you are going to do, works.
