7.0 hangs when trying to start


Recommended Posts

7.0 is hanging on the screen right after the splash screen. At the bottom left corner it says 'starting'. I'm using the 'trial' version - never got to enter the trial license code.


Running Win XP SP2 with Norton AV [Corp Edition] and ZA 5.5.0062.004 Pro.


7.0 was installed over 6.5 Pro. Then tried uninstalling 7.0 and reinstalling - all the same.


No issues identified in Event Viewer - System or Application.


Any ideas?

Yes - have tried with ZA shutdown and NAV uninstalled - no change.


Hardware: Athlon 3200, system drive on IDE 0, second hard drive on Promise IDE adapter. Liteon CDRW.


Just to confirm - Retrospect 6.5 has been running with no problems for past couple years. No recent hardware changes.

Well, it's even worse.


Just to confirm, I installed a fresh Win XP on a different, formated drive. Sure enough, Retro 7.0 installed and worked. But, now the disaster recover disk causes a stop error just it goes to start up Windows [i.e., at the very end after loading all the drivers]


Don't know if it's related, but I'm using an OEM version of Win XP. But it works with Retro 6.5.


This is too much effort - I'm otta here.

Just after my last note, realized that the problem with the DR disk could be from the fresh install. It was [hadn't copied all the needed files to the i386 folder].


The only thing that is still a mystery is what was causing Retro 7.0 to hang on starting in the previous XP install.
