Daz muh problem! I bought it knowing this, but I'd looked and couldn't
find anything that said a lower OS was still supported. Time marches on.
It appears to be a chip-empowered security update to accommodate
The install disks are clean, I barely use 'em. I know, CDs have a shelf life,
but I've never had problems on the machine for which they were designed.
This is just all part of the travails we have now face on the endless treadmill
of built-in-obsolescence the tech industry has us all in. The thing that really
bothers me with this, are the cash-strapped folks who now NEED this stuff
but have to choose between it and, say, insurance to make things work.
Not a political thread, but I threw it out there ...
ANYHOO, thanks for the guidance on this.
