This is a real shame. I wonder if some super hacker whizz could hack into it and make it work. I mean, I did pay for it legit with all the keys and disk and numbers. I tried re-loading it but same denial of use without activation.
That is extremely disappointing as I had finally gotten my old computer up and running and wanted to capture digital video from a mini DV camera through my firewire. I am sure they had something in the agreement 20 years ago that said they could pull the rug out when they wanted. Thanks for the info.
