Creator 9 Won't Activate

Question

I have Roxio media creator 9 retail that I paid good money for, lately it says it must activate the mpeg2 component when loading the mydvd module. It is then unable to activate sayintg that the product number is not valid. The module then shuts down. It use to be valid, it use to work fine. I realize the software is no longer supported but should that mean that it should stop working? Why would I upgrade to another Roxio product knowing that it too would most likely eventually call home and say no longer able to operate

This certainly brings back a lot of old memories. You can look through the posts in the following link, but I wouldn't hold my breath on anything there working, except possibly a repair or reinstall of the software.

I suspect that when Roxio was bought by Corel, all the keys were dumped in a method to force you o buy new software. I used Creator 9 for years, I had to replace my HD and that's when the trouble started. Each time I bring up DVD Copier,it tries to authorize by going on line then comes back with a message "invalid Key". I have a Corel account and its a registered product but the key they show is nothing like the key on the CD shuck. Went a different method and tried off line registration,the site they gave me said that the key had to be 25 characters long and the key on the CD shuck is only 20. These people are dishonest and can kiss my a**. I think Corel is in Ontario Canada so they don't care evidently how many people they *^$$ off. They have lost a loyal customer because I will not buy a Corel or Roxio product agai
