Win 2000 problem

Boris Clair Hi everybody,

I need help for a strange problem I am having transferring E-book Compiler from my old desktop PC Win 98 to my newer Win 2000 laptop.

I donít want to keep developing on my Win 98 machine and need the compiler, which I love BTW, to work with Win 2000.

After transferring all the files to the Win 2000 PC everything seemed to work, except that at compile time the exe file created has a 0 bytes length and of course does not work.

So I uninstalled E-book Compiler on the Win 2000 PC, downloaded the latest version, deleted the .ini file and reinstalled unlocking the trial limitations with my paid password. Same problem!

I wonder if there is a secret file somewhere that inhibits the proper functioning of the compiler. I mentioned the problem a few months ago to Sunil who said that to his knowledge E-book compiler works fine with Win 2000, but he had heard of a similar problem. He did not remember however how the problem was solved.

Did anyone experience such a thing? Any idea on how to fix this? I really need to have E-book compiler work on my Win 2000 laptop now.

Any help is welcome.

Storyman Boris,

I am under the impression that Activ e-Book uses copy protection along the same lines of the password for ebooks that it creates. That is, the key number is linked to the hard drive.

Of course this means (in theory) that unless the drive numbers for both drives use the same key code (something like a one in a thousand chance), then you'll have to contact Sunil.

Boris Clair Thanks a lot for the suggestion. That's one of the hypothesis I made, but could not get a clear answer from Sunil so far. I will try to contact him again. If it is the case I probably would just need a different password.
