Adding program modules


Robaire

Question

I installed the EMC9 Suite using the "Typical" installation option. I couldn't find DVDInfo Pro during the normal operation of the program. One of the posters suggested maybe I didn't install it. Well, they were right! I learned this by extracting the downloaded executeable program file, and sure enough there was a subdirectory for it.

 

I tried to install it from the subdirectory, and from Windows "Add Program" but it said I needed to use the main "setup" program. I ran setup, thinking that I could just add a module in the custom screen. I tried to uncheck all the boxes that were checked as being installed, and just check the DVDinfo box, but got the message that I had to use the Windows "remove program" function, which I of course didn't want to do...I just wanted to add the module. I then re-checked all the boxes that were originally checked, and added a check mark to the DVDInfo box.

 

It seems that the install program re-installed the entire program, not just installed the Dvdinfo program. I was never given an opportunity to repair, or add anything. Since it appears that the program was reinstalled, is that going to mess up my original installation?? Do I now need to uninstall everything and do a complete clean install??

 

Thanks,

Bob

If you go to Control panel. add/remove programs, highlight Roxio Easy Media Creator 9, click change. follow the wizard until you get to a screen that has three options: Modify, repair, remove. Select modify,click next. You get the screen shown in the pic. It show which modules are installed and which are not. Click ont any item that is not showing as installed that you want, and set it to be installed with all subfeatures, then click next. It may ask for the location of some file, in which case point it to where you extracted the installation files. It will not reinstall the items that are already installed (although the caption is a little misleading in that respect).

Try running all of the programs, and if they run, don't touch anything.

 

And don't update anything. There is a possibity to update Backup by downloading Backup MyPC 2006. It is not an update but an extra program. When I had a look at the system log file, I saw that the program was not installed properly. There were all kinds of errors in the registry. I simply removed Backup MyPC 2006 and fortunatety, my system has not been damaged by that program.
