    Pirated Copies... The Nerve...

    Wow, this guy isn't going to be happy unless he posts about his rebate woes in every thread. Unless the numbers are extremly drastic, I don't think you can use that as a good basis for the number of pirated copies. I, for one, had to download the update software at least 5 times before I figured out my problem, and that was from multiple IP and PCs. But, just looking on the newsgroups, I would have to agree that Toast is in high demand.

    That is what serial numbers are for, to discourage pirating. There are some software makers that require their software to contact a server in order to validate. Norton SystemWorks 2005 did this on the PC. But, someone figured a way around it.

    Pirated Copies... The Nerve...

    I was thinking the same thing. Though, he could have bought his hardware while he was still living in Canada. The one thing I don't get, he bought the program in Bankok. The first indication would be the price, if he paid $20.00 (just and example) for the program, but the web site clearly indicates a price of around $100.00, I would be suspect. He also didn't say he bought it from a MAC shop, he stated he bought it from the bigest MAC dealer in Bankok. I don't know what companies are certified MAC dealers in Bankok, but if he bought pirated software, I don't think they are reputable. This is actually an issue for the government over there and not the software companies.

    Pirated Copies... The Nerve...

    It's a pretty well know fact that most of the software sold in Bankok is pirated. The US cannot enforce the copyright law there, so shop owners can get away with pirating. As soon as you step off the airplane in Bankok, you can find someone who will sell you pirated software in legitimate looking boxes. Unless you buy it from a legitimate MAC store with MAC representatives, your chances of getting a legal copy are pretty rare.

    Bad 702 Update File

    If the copyright states not for export outside of the US or Canada, then it is illegal. Toast here is $100.00 (roughly) I also find it interesting that it states you are in Bankok, your post came in at 08:48 PM, but it is currently after 4 AM Thursday in Bankok.

    Saying you bought it in Bangkok just leads me to believe it is pirated.

    Bad 702 Update File

    I went from 7.01 to 7.02, after installing the update it did go through the initial setup again, but it didn't ask me for my serial again, it just asked me if I wanted to make any changes to my profile. I don't think your problem is the same as mine. I had a corrupt image due to Stuffit.

    Bad 702 Update File

    Downloaded it on an IBM, still bad. I did mount it with Toast and it opened. I copied the file over to update it and it bombed out on what looks like a PST file. Now Toast will not run because the update crashed. I believe Stuffit expander is doing the unzipping. I will have to thank Freshburn for the idea. I used BOM to extract the file and it looks like Stuffit was the problem. BOM extracted it fine with no errors. Leave it to the users to figure it out, never the company that made the software. Cheers to Freshburn!

    And you were able to mount it?

    Bad 702 Update File

    I think the statement on their website which states to have your credit card ready would be a clear indication. I downloaded it 3 times, the DMG comes up bad every time.

    Bad 702 Update File

    The 702 DMG file for Toast 7 is bad. At least that is what my MAC is saying, anyone else having this problem since it is impossible to get a hold of technical support unless you fork over another $35.00.
