If its EMC9, you can contact the Dell, HP or whatever company made your pc and see if they can replace your lost oem version. As gi7omy noted, no sense in trying to retrieve an oem version of emc8 for a Vista machine.

Doubttful you had a "full version" of emc9 on your pc, mine came with a "light" version of the product about a year ago. Maybe try the free trial of that product? Here is the trial product's link.

I had both but it was still there when I had Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005

 

You asked for help and now you are playing the yes.. but game.

 

That program came with your computer and is an OEM version so it cost you nothing.

 

When you had XP on your computer, did you have MyDVD 8 with Internet Explorer 7 and or Windows Media Player 11? It is possible that that might work but not probable. It will not work with Vista.

 

If you had MyDVD 9, with the updated browser and player then it should have worked and will work with Vista.

 

Your computer with XP is NOT the same as your computer with Vista. There is no relationship so don't keep using that as a reference point.

 

Contact your computer manufacturer and see if they will give you an version compatible with Vista.

It is possible that the OEM [Original Equipment Mfgr] Version that came with your computer had some special coding added making it compatible with something (such as IE 7 or WinPlayer 11) that the regular Version didn't have.

 

However, it is still an OEM Version, and OEM support comes from the company tht contracted to use the OEM Version with their hardware. For one thing, they would be the ones to know what they had in it, unless it is so old it is out of support.
