Disccatalog Asks For Toast 8 When Using Toast 9


refusion

Question

I just upgraded to Toast 9 today. I installed Toast 9 and then uninstalled Toast 8. I also got rid of DiscCatalogMakerRE and DiscCover RE. IMHO, both of these products are useless, even the full versions. BeLight makes some pretty stinky software. I would suggest not treating Mac users like Windows users. We neither want nor expect crippled freeware versions of other stuff to be bundled with our software.

 

Anyway, after getting rid of DiscCatalogMakerRE and re-booting, I see that it's still listed under 'extras' in Toast 9. I mean, it's suppose to be GONE. Why does it still show up in Toast 9? Also, it says I need to have Toast 8 installed in order to use it...What??? This is also causing pop-ups letting me know that DiscCatalogMaker RE has crashed after burning a DVD. Whatever..

 

Remember, Mac users want things 'that just work'. No extra garbage. Just make the main software work and let us fill in the blanks with what we need. I guess Roxio hasn't improved much since the 'old days'.

You do realize that DiscCatalogMaker RE is identical to the full version except that Toast can send the catalog contents to this version right? :)

 

Since you deleted the T9 version and some version of DiscCatalogMaker is launching still, I would guess it is somewhere on your HD. Try doing a spotlight search for DiscCatalogMaker and trash whatever versions you find.

 

 

Okay, but you should realize that I did in fact delete the only T8 installation on my drive using AppZapper. I have no idea why another instance of T8 would still be on my drive unless it's some sort of back-up that I'm not aware of. I think it's just a bug in DiscCatalogMaker. Did BeLight make the necessary code changes to the add-ons before they were inserted into T9's code? It's possible BeLight overlooked a routine and it's making the program hunt for something it shouldn't be.

Be sure the box next to "Catalog Disc Contents (Mac Contents Only)" is unchecked. That option is in the Advanced tab of the Recorder Settings window. The application still will appear as an item under the Extras menu even if it doesn't exist on your hard drive, but there is no reason to select it, either.
