WIS CD READ ERROR!

Hey Benzworldforum,

i've got the WIS cds just today and after checking out the instruction videos i immediately wanted to get the program going. Unfortunately i was not able to even open the cd because "the cd is not compatible with this version of windows".

Now apparently i didn't need updating my WindowsXP SP2, so what could be the problem here?

I already browsed around the forum, but i could not find a thing about cd read errors, only problems afterwards (which i ofcourse do not hope to encounter).

Thanks,

Nicos

That doesn't sound like a read error, but rather an OS compatibility issue. How old is this WIS version?

Which instructions videos are you talking about? The official WIS discs should not have any.

It should not even be a CD but a DVD, perhaps a poor dual layer DVD copy? Or can you read the disc content with file manager?

I got two off eBay and got them to work - although it took my literally three days of work and five different computers before I got it working. And to be honest anyone who isn't really good with computers doesn't stand a chance.

Thanks, I did not know I'm good with computers.

By the way, the thread is almost two years old, the person asking only posted once, I don't think he/she has been actively following us since then.
