    That is correct. I set mine to Jan '07. I'll just have to remember to set it back once the end of the year draws near.

    Who is Any????

    Actually, I have mediacat on all of my computers, including the 2008
    dvd version, and I click the dates back and forth whenever needed, just
    remember to click it to the old date before opening.

    I have to move the date to the correct time to log onto pokerstars......

    Mediacat will expire before that- it's only good for 9 months FROM the manf date. Then you need to figure out where its hiding it's "I know I've been here before" stuff... or reinstall the OS.


    Install it to HD, and image the entire HD. Then you can just reload the image every so often.. lot of screwing around for a product that gets updated 4 times a year.

    Yes... once you open mediacat with a later date, it's toast... it's actually a POS software. Doesn't play well with other apps, doesn't adhere to windows standards, and now and then flips out and issues German error messages.

    I'm just going to hold down the "Shift" key so the autostart exe file doesn't load up when I insert it into my computer, then use windows explorer to browse through it. I will likely just drag the pdf files onto my hard drive and go from there.

    Oh yeah, I will burn 2 CDs first for the next two recipients.

    EDIT: This has worked on other CDs, but is not guaranteed to work on this one. If not, I will use one of the copies that I will initially make.

    Before you LAUNCH the CD.... Copying is just blind.

    I'm not going in if you are wearing these. Usually reliable sources say you just bought a pair...

    The ones you got, I just copied the CD title on a piece of paper. Then I cut and pasted the entire contents of the CD into a temporary folder on my computer. Then I burned a new CD. I'm too cheap to buy another drive for my desktop. :givebeer: I was trying to use some software to do it, but cut and paste was easier than figuring out the "easy to use" programs.....

    I can see Stihl coming out with a version that will be very hard to copy.

    Ok, B200 helped me figure out how to get these copied, thanks Tim. I'm sending copies to "Kam" and "Etced" out this week.

    it's not Stihl... they are just a user of the system - it can have multiple vendors, not just stihl.
