In many places on the site it says that this 188.8.131.52 version of anydvd can be used with the old slysoft lifetime license. So I downloaded it (the old version-I found the link on the faq page) and I tried installing it on a new laptop and installed the license and it isn't working. Is there a way to get it to work? I don't have the $$ to buy a new license and my kids are only using older dvds so I don't really need a current one right now. thanks eta: from the FAQ page: Can I use my Slysoft license with the new RedFox versions? The last version of AnyDVD that can be unlocked with Slysoft license keys is 184.108.40.206. For all later versions you need to obtain a new license key from us. SlySoft licenses of other products such as CloneDVD, CloneCD, and CloneDVD mobile, as well as elby CloneBD licenses are not affected and will continue to work normally.
