I've been using 2.3.0 since it came out and no trouble, but I load it up today and it gives me the error message of having to reinstall it from "Official sources..." What it is basically doing is calling me a pirate again. I paid for this and only used the download from the "Official source". We went through this on a previous version as well and I had thought that they fixed it in this version. I got ripped off. This is a piece of crap. When it works its great, but stuff like this happens way too much and one has to start from scratch each time. Maybe they shouldn't charge $15 until they get it out of this early beta?

Remember the old saying K.I.S.S. (Keep it simple, stupid.)  ;) Make it easier and fair for people to use and they will prefer it. i.e. iTunes.

I wonder if you know the meaning of Installation...
1a. The act of installing.
1b. The state of being installed. Also called installment.

Well... I won't argue with you.
I'm not in the mood.
Good luck, then.

Using semantics as an argument is a fallacy and thus not a valid point.....

It must be very difficult getting around with that dictionary stuck up you rear.   ::)

I'm not the one who brought up the "morals" aspect. They're the one's who are implying otherwise. As if it is ALWAYS the customers fault.

I never got this error when I INSTALLED it, only some time AFTERWARDS for no reason. The Installation always went well. I've already stated this.....

Its just weird that you always seem to be the victim, I dont run into so much problems

Maybe because I don't take things lying down. Or accept the status quo. Again I don't like what you're trying to imply here. I'm no one's victim. A victim accepts what's given to them without question.....

I take it that you're not in customer relations?   ::)

No not always, yes some antipiracy measures do more harm than good.
Like DRM does to MP3 and some other measures, but that doesnt mean all antipiracy measures are flawed...

Look at how whatsapp operates, they check your expiry date online, you cant say all sanity checks are flawed just because a few didnt work out...
But I do agree that excesive protection doesn't always benefit the user...

Those are the worse kind since you're ALWAYS seen as being a potential pirate. Plus you have to have a persistent connection in order to use such apps even if they are not a internet related programs. I recently bought an app for my Playbook and when I went to use it, when there was no WiFi in range, it wouldn't work and it wasn't an Internet program. Guilty without due process.

If YouWave only had the serial it wouldn't be all that bad, but they also put a limit on how long that you can enter it as well. They have way too much Copy protection on it and as I've seen from others on here it is causing problems.

I've only ever had bad experiences with copy protection and there is nothing "sane" about it.

"the sanity check"?

All copy protection schemes are flawed. Its an unrelated routine trying to co-exist with another. Even when they are working they are flawed.

Under Windows Activation I've had to call up the help center to reactivate because it could not tell the difference between a software update and a hardware update. It got so bad that they automatically invalided my key code because of too many activations. They were never a deterrent to pirates either. Its a waste of time and resources.

I did nothing of the sort. I leave those folders alone. It just happens out of the blue. One day everything is running fine and the next day BLAM! "Me no workie anymore...." I'm not the only one on here to have this happen either.

I have it uninstalled now and waiting for the next version.

This is not the same message. It can be weeks AFTER installation when this message shows up and disappears AFTER reinstallion. I don't like what you're implying. I PAID for my copy. Its your copy protection screwing up.

Like I always say, copy protection schemes only ever adversely affect legal owners of software. Pirates can easily bypass them all.

Thanks for the help.

Its not as if it happens often. It can be weeks between this happening. Its really an annoyance.

Every so often I get the error message:

"Software package error. Please reinstall the product from an official source."

when I start and have to reinstall YouWave and lose everything I installed. Does anyone else get this error as well?

I'm using 2.2.3, but it did the same with 2.2.2. I have a Pentium 4 3.4GHz CPU, and 2 Gigs of RAM.
