At present using DI2002 because of a seemingly incurable problem with .net framework click here for the info.
But for reasons known only to the gods Paintdot net has started working without any problem. So I want to test DI7. Is it necessary to remove DI2002 first before installing DI7, ie will they work together? It will save a lot of hassle if it doesn't work if I can leave 2002 whwre it is.
I must say I removed DI 2000 when I got DI 7 some time ago and have found the upgrade excellent. As it works direct from XP it is much faster in total and I use it once every week to back up the C Drive to both another internal disk and a firewire external one; wouldn't be without it.
I still wont want .NetFramework(beta or not)as I'm getting seriously fedup of these huge "updates" screwing my PC.I tried SP-2,it "broke" my windoze,.Net "broke" my windows,etc.Never enough damage to require a major overhaul,just occasional glitches(stuttering graphics/shortcuts that open the wrong apps)or customised desktop apps that require updating everytime I reboot. :-)
I have DI7 & 2002,I seem to recall that it created shortcuts(icons/prog files)to BOTH when I installed them together,so you could use both on your PC.
To use 2002 in XP,I always recreate the "Rescue" floppies,and boot from them,as images created within windows occasionally can cause problems,and SATA HDD's aren't recognised by TrueImage(I have these backup apps as well)so when I built a SATA only system,I ceased messing with DI7 incase I found a similar prob with it(although going from blanco's post,DI7 works with firewire so prob works just as well on SATA)
