2.0.0 Beta 4 (Mar 26, 2002)
Am I the only one that doesn't understand what this product is? I can not tell from the description or the screen shot. Actually, I am more curious about what I would use this for.

Download Accelerator 3.5 was a Gold version as far as I am concerned. It did what it said it was going to do and that was it. The more recent versions of DA are filled with ads and add an icon in my task tray that I would rather not see. DA 3.5 did not do any of that. I am glad I kept a copy of that burned to a CD which I cherish to this day. I have seen a downfall in it's performance on DSL versus Cable modem though. It doesn't seem to exceed it's capabilities like the cable modem did. I miss my cable modem!

Well, I have always thought that this product was a great product until last night when I took the time to create images to my hard drive for 6 different programs and then burn them to 3 different sets (18 CD's altogether). Not one CD came out right and I had to re-burn the CD's with Roxio's Easy CD Creator 5.0 instead. That went without a problem. Oh well...maybe you have to do direct copies with this but I have lost my confidence in this program.

It would have been good but VNC is free and requires no registration. $700 for my site is not cost effective. The program itself might be alright but money talks and as VNC is probably their biggest competitor, they will control the market. Good luck to the company though.

...you guys that participate here are technologically gifted enough to update the system offline by downloading the updates from another pc and installing them from a cd, aren't ya?

My beta kit arrived yesterday. The only real problem I seem to have come accross so far is when I install the program, I get 6 ODBC errors in a row. I have to ignore them to get past it and once I do everything seems to run fine.

I decided to install the latest BETA SP from Microsoft Friday night. I installed in on my laptop first because it was at the time the most ependable. It installed without a hitch. I felt safe! So, I went to my main desktop and installed it on there too. Went a little faster than the laptop and screamed through everything (400Mhz vs. 1.6 GHz makes up that difference). I rebooted...it did everything the laptop did, the meter bar, then the WinXP Logo screen then it went to a black screen and stayed there for about as long as it did for the laptop.....and then it happened. I got a stop error where it then immediately rebooted the PC. Went the same motions again....same result. Booted into the safe mode and tried to restore it back to a restore point but my mouse and keyboard were disabled. Could not do anything. Had to reinstall all over again. My desktop PC was home built..my laptop was an IBM...not sure if that had anything to do with it or not...just thought I would share something with you.

What the individual stated earlier about the upgrade not being any different that the full version is this: To install a fresh install of a new O/S doesn't require that you install Win2K first then install XP over the top of it. Apparently, you are unaware that you begin the installation of the O/S with the Upgrade version first and at a certain point in the installation, it will ask you to insert the CD of a qualified full version copy. To break that down more, put your XP upgrade version in and begin installation. When it says to put the qualifying copy in, put your full version of Win2K in the CD ROM. After it verifies that you have a full version copy of that O/S, it will tell you to put the upgrade copy back in the CD-ROM. This is how you avoid having to purchase full versions of the software without the complications of upgrading an already installed O/S.
