Hi S-T (Do I know you from another forum or just here?)
Yeah, like yourself I love Nero as a burning app & have been using it for a good while now!, going back to v5.
After v6 (and updates) which was 'solid' imho, to version 7 I have to say I'm not too impressed by their efforts either mate
I can't get Nero Vision to execute either my friend yet it shows in Task Manager as running!?, also Wave Editor & Nero Sound Trax haven't worked on this user account since installing Sony Acid Pro 5.0 a couple of weeks back yet Wave Editor, & I presume Sound Trax work on both my son's accounts, one of which is a guest account the other with admin's rights.
It does seem to be a bit "bloated" these days mate huh!?, just looking at whats on the start menu, I mean how many actual shortcuts do you need?. Seriously though, I dunno what you think about Nero Home? but although it looks nice & Media Centre'ish it really isn't required. There's nothing you can do with it that can't be done elsewhere.
My fear, we'll have to wait until 8.0 until they get it right,
Well I hope theres not too many more 7.x.x.x releases before then mate!!
Btw, can you upgrade through Product Setup?, I cured my problem in the last post but only by logging into 'My Nero' & d/l'ing the update again & updating manually as in not with Product Setup.
