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.
