I just installed 2.5.2 over 2.5.1. It did not ask for the activation code again. Is this a new feature? As I said, I installed it over 2.5.1. I know from the past DVDXCopy always asked to be reactivated when upgrading. Just wondering

bebandit,
Mine has never asked me to reactivate since day one on either DVDXCopy or Express. I was always under the impression that the only time you needed to reactivate is when you formatted your hard drive or moved the software from one computer to another one.

Conrad: Mine has always asked for the code regardless of the type of install. Either installing over itself or uninstalling then reinstalling the upgrade.It just seemed strange that it didn't ask for any code at all

bebandit,
That's odd. I just download, install, and use. I don't get any type of prompt for a code, never have except for the very first time. Even after uninstalling the previous version, I never get a prompt.

I would like to throw in my two cents here. I have installed/uninstalled DXC at least eight times. Between messing around with my computer, beta testing, flip-flopping between versions to get certain movies ripped, and upgrades, I have installed/uninstalled DXCX literally dozens of times.

The only time I ever had to activate either program was the very first time I installed it.

And in the immortal words of some band whose name I've forgotten,

That's the way, uh-huh uh-huh, I like it, uh-huh uh-huh!

Dengar: I like it also. I was just wondering when/why it changed. DVDXcopy always wanted me to type in the code/password when I installed it. I was mainly checking to see if it was supposed to do this or if it was something wrong.

dengar,
I believe those famous words were spoken by "Average White Band". Also, I had to activate after Ghosting (Norton) my 40GB drive to a new 160GB drive.
