OEM vs Retail


ricbuen

Question

Is there any way possible to tell the EMC9 CD is OEM or Retail? I installed EMC9 suite on a Ultimate Vista 64 bit with some errors (missing signed driver, i.e. Rxfilter.sys) then after wanted to install the upgrade (9.1), the install wiped the old installation, and only left drag to disc feature in that computer. I heard that upgrade is only for " retail" boxed versions and not OEM, is this true?

Thanks.

The upgrade is not for OEM version and is only for the Retail version. What version number do you have? I'm not familiar enough with Vista 64 to be able to tell you how well the update works on it. I can tell you it's working fine on 2 Vista Ultimate 32 bit versions I have running.

As Creator "Classic" shows Build 900B88F ENU, technical support ID: 711609343758, I bought this version from web vendor that claims is a full retail version, which I doubt is "retail".

 

As Creator "Home", it's version 9.0.88, Build 900B88F, R03

S/N: xxxxxxxxxxxxx, the Key CD# on the box is different.

 

Appreciate your help.

 

I've edited your post to remove your serial number for obvious reasons. (Beerman)

"ENU" indicates a Retail Disc version so the one called "Creator 9 Suite" should be what you are after.

 

DO NOT ATTEMPT to use the "Deluxe Suite" version!

 

However, from what I have seen, Vista 64 is going to continue to give you trouble. Most agree that its' release was… premature.

so, in conclusion it's a retail box. I'll try it before un-install and installed on my Dell (XP).

 

Thanks to everyone.
