Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

No probs re: the multiple CDs...

Beware of most 'crack .exe' files... They are not necessarily all bad but you need to be considerably out of your skull to do anything with any of them until you have done some serious AV scans of the file(s) !!!

You may only need to locate a document file with the odd bit of info in it !

btw... None of the other mods or super mods here have yet commented on your delightful restraint in NOT mentioning the name of the app that is currently causing you moderate brain overheating if not structural damage !!!!

Ta for being cool about your questions !!!

One of the easiest ways to do what you wish is to use NERO...

Just use the Burn Image function... You may need to enable the 'geek' view of the interace instead of the mom and pop dumbo default !
When you select the Burn Image function you will be prompted for the name and location of the .iso file(s)... One at a time, and (please) don't do anything else while the burn takes place... Give it a chance with no browsing or music playing or whatever !!!

Many of the apps out there are quite happy to be installed FROM CDs that you have burned from .iso - and then you must configure the no-CD capability.

Thought I'd have one last stab at doing it CD'less, moved the .exe files around again and got the following error message:

"Unable to initialize the ASPI Manager, ASPI support information was not found"

I know i'm close because it nearly loaded.

what do you recon?

I reckon give up an either burn the cd or mount it, because I can't find that program anywhere I trust i.e. either it is old or it is created by the p2p scene/private rip.

Strange a crack would be included on the CD that doesn't work

I'll just burn it, seems easier.

The crack thats on there might be ok, prob because im doing something wrong.

Dont really understand how to mount the drive properly. Have got it so that I can see it on the computer and see whats in the virtual cd drive. I dont know which file/s need to be mounted so the app thinks there is a CD in there.

I think I saw it on ebay pretty cheap ....

hmmmm...well from my experience if it won't mount in a virtual rom then it won't work when burned as a CD either....in fact I always mount disc images before I possibly waste a CD (and my time)...did you do a bitzi lookup on the file you acquired?

You need to mount the ISO image, not just some files from it. The crack should just have been added to the original CD-ROM.

I did a bitzi look up and all the reviews were fine- cant remember where I found the file from to see the reviews again though!

When I downloaded it, it came as 2 ISO's so not sure which one to mount or how to combine them together.

This is what I've tried to do...

-Opened the ISO files into PowerISO and then extracted the info on them all into one folder on my PC

-Installed the program

-Swapped the .exe file from the crack folder with the one in the program file

-Mounted ISO 1 (didnt work), Mounted ISO 2 (didnt work)

-Tried downloading a new crack but to use it, it wasnt as simple as just swapping the .exe files. This crack created a couple new files and looked pretty genuine. (I've virus checked all of these files with different AV software- just incase) I think by then I'd moved so many files around that it didnt have a fair crack at working.

-Do I need to put a new .sys file in my system32/drivers file to get the virtual drive to work? I know I put one in there for the microsoft virtual but dont think I did for PowerISO


I think the problem lies in the mounting (mounting things has never been my strong point!) I've now removed everything and about to start again for one last throw of the dice. Please can you guys check my technique and let me know if I need to be doing something different.

Cheers again

I looked at other user comments for that download and the comments implied that the crack on the ISO didn't work, but they could be found at "the link that I sent to you". Because this download is so old, the fix has since been removed from that site it seems. Be extremely careful when finding stuff to fix it with. Because the fix is so small in size it is very easy to get fooled be someone renaming a virus.

And no PowerISO takes care of all that by itself, not like the inferior M$ equivalent.

Pretty much the best thing is to check the web for comments and discussions on the thing you are trying to do.
