My original post for the problem I had, when I searched for a topic that might help...led me to the already posted thread/post of the "4.5.1" link referencing the "nero photoshow 4.5.1 deluxe". Currently it is the post that is approx. 11 posts down, under forum topics...it has a large blue question mark on the left side. In it, the post had the only reference to the NERO photoshow. I posted the above question in this thread(4.5.1 nero photoshow deluxe). It is still the same....my post plus 2 others. Since I didn't really see any answer to this post, I started a new post "nero photoshow 5 Deluxe". I started the post with where my question was located, just to see if I would get any response to my question (posted in the "4.5.1 thread"). I assumed that any response to the "Nero 5 deluxe" post had read my initial question, in the 4.5.1 thread. Anyway...apparently, that did not happen.
To answer your question about useful replies to the earlier post...it is, no. You can see for yourself by going to that 4.5.1 post/thread. Since I didn't get any answers I tried to contact Nero, and Roxio, but that was all done by email, wait several days for a reply, and go from there. I thought the forum would give me a quicker answer to my question. Anyway,....I now have nero 9, for $50.00 upgrade, a new Roxio photoshow for $30.00, and, a "found" Nero photoshow 5 deluxe (after 3-4 wks of contact with Nero. Both the Roxio, and the Nero photoshow 5 are working the way the Nero 5 Deluxe photoshow was intended to work(they seem identical...except one is stand alone(Nero), and Roxio is internet based, with a yearly fee required to maintain the use of the program. As stated above, my only problem now is I have to enter the registry key every time I want to use either program...I'm working on this.
Anyway....Thank you for your response. I'm sorry about all the confusion I've created.....I guess that's what happens when you start to ASSUME.
I'm still wondering about the 600 views to this thread.
