Roxio's way of updates...?

Question

I've browsed updates for previous versions of EMC and noted, that updating to the last version is only possible from retail, real CD versions, as opposed to ESD (downloaded) versions.

 

Is there any common sense in this approach?

 

Considering coming update for EMC9, should I try to "get" CD-images now and reinstall from them, as there is good chance the update won't work with my ESD version?

 

X.

There were some of the ESD versions that did need a 'replacement' installation, but others that were happy with patches.

 

What will happen with the patch for EMC9 entirely depends on how it works - if it's feasible, it will be a patch, if not then a replacement installation.

 

Until the guys in the back room have it finalised, we're all just guessing

After wasting far too much of my time and yours, I finally uninstalled EMC9 with the thought that "eventually" changes would be made that would allow me to use it. Your comment suggests that a patch/update may be on the way. Am I reading too much into your response, is help on the way? Thanks.

As far as any of us know there is a patch on the way - when that is likely to be, I'm afraid I haven't a clue.

 

All I can say is that I'm running 9 DeLuxe here and no real problems beyond having to shift a couple of files manually when DirectX updated itself (took all of 5 minutes to do)

Thanks for the comeback. I've never had a program that wouldn't run on one of my computers, but EMC9 changed that. I want to be able to use this program and my options are down to a patch/update, or hoping that a change to Vista from XP SP2 (all updates) will solve the problem. Hopefully, a future update will do the trick. Again, thanks.
