Old Songs won't license for me, Vista, BearShare
Here's my problem, and sorry if it's been addressed before but I couldn't find this direct problem anywhere.

I have had BearShare(a paying member version) for a few years now on an old laptop(Laptop A). Well, Laptop A was recently on it's last legs so I bought a new one(Laptop B) that is running Windows Vista. I downloaded the newest version of BearShare once I got Laptop B (I was running an older version on A) and went to play songs in Windows Media Player.

Quite a few of the songs(about 20%) are popping up saying,"License Required: A license is required to play this media, however a license for thius product was not found, has expired, or has been corrupted" keeps popping up.

I tried going through the TroubleShooting tips BearSHare offered but none of them address the Vista platform as they are all suggesting to download Windows XP Service Pack 2.

How in the world do I get BearSHare to reaquire these licenses????:sos:

uninstall that POS cr@ppy version, and install this version

make sure to read the entire thread to pick up on some pointers

Ok, I've got the version you told me to get loaded and started but it hasn't solved the licensing problem... I'll continue to look through that thread but haven't found a way to play those files yet.

Thanks for helping me along.

there is no licensing anything with that version....I have NEVER seen it and I've been using it for a long time...

In the version of BS i just downloaded I'll go to one of the songs that wasn't working when I downloaded the newest version and it will give me the same "license required" message that I have been getting all along.

erm .. I'm just wondering if your Bearshare is using the preferences from the RIAA version bearshare.

Also be aware of these signs Virus thread: Typical virus spam file sizes - Make a note of them (click on blue link to see)

And in general, I'd suggest you stay away from WMV and WMA files. You can put both in your filters.
