    I don't think you're going to get it to work in Windows 7 because if you check the history for it, you'll see that the last release took place in 2007 and enabled the program to work in Vista:...

    Here's where your problem lies, pure and simple. Both these machines have a motherboard which only supports USB 2.0

    You can plug a USB flashdrive 3.0 in it by all means, but the motherboard will...

    A CD-R disc may appear to be cheaper, but considering they have a maximum storage capacity of only 700MB, in reality, they're a lot more expensive because a DVD equivalent can store up to 4.7GB's...

    In case it's of any use to anyone, I've just read on the SBS blog that the if workstations have the update hardening agent installed, they can no longer communicate with WSUS.

    Oh, I'm sorry. I thought this thread was about Windows 8 which is a MIcrosoft product I believe. Did I accidentally post in the Apple thread?

    Well, the short answer is to use a third party tool that works if the one supplied with the OS doesn't. The VLC player which you say works doesn't need any codecs.

    As far as WMP is concerned, I...

    Yes, but at a price. Microsoft doesn't give you most of these things. It charges a hefty sum for them. Those that are free are there because if they weren't, you'd use a third party application...

    Totally agree with you. Apple is milking the cash cow for all its worth. But then if Microsoft were to be adored in the same way the Apple's hysterically inclined followers do, wouldn't they be doing...

    Strange, when I think about it. I used to be like you: wouldn't hear a bad word said about M$; myself a dedicated IE user.

    But times change, or at least they do for some of us.

    Yes, I understand your point of view, but the difference between the two of us is that you're a Windows man through and through while I'm not.

    Thanks for the thought, but I've already checked all the possibilities.

    It's logical if you think about it. You can't build in support for something which didn't exist at the time the component...

    Nice idea, but it doesn't work that way I'm afraid. The reason you have five options before the region code becomes set in stone is to allow PAL interoperability. This means you can play a DVD or CD...
