My WIS won't WIS

Purchased off Ebay last year. I had sporadic problems before. It always says "expiration of this cd set exceeded more than three months" but was usable. Occasionally it would ask for the cd(even though mine is the dvd) but putting it in the drive would make no difference and I would have to ctr-alt-del to get out of the program, reboot comp and it would work. Now it constantly asks for the cd and I cannot acces any info past the selection screens.

Try setting your PC date back a few months (or years) for a temporary fix. This used to work long ago on date stamped/licensed software.

Don't forget to turn off any automatic internet time syncing. You also might try uninstalling (with correct date) and reinstalling (with old date) in case there are some registry entries...?

RE: My WIS won't WIS

mine has this problem too, but I solve it by installing a HUB on the LAN card.

RE: My WIS won't WIS

I too purchased WIS software over eBay, and have had less than perfect success pulling information. I have to be connected to internet to make it work and occasionally, I get kicked off. My dealer told me that there are many old and illegal copies out there. Needless to say, unless you paid a couple thousand for the software, you don't have the real WIS. My discs make nice coasters.
