    AnyDVD did *not* ask you to reboot after the installation?

    The program did not ask for a re-boot

    The program did not ask for a re-boot after the install.
    as soon as i installed the program the error came up,
    and no drives were listed

    so i coped the error and re-booted on restart the drives were listed.

    although this latest version is supposed to install without a reboot of your computer...
    ...the error message says to reboot on point 2 (which you did and fixed it).

    just seems like a little glitch that needs ironing out.

    Same Problem, Different OS!

    James, I had this same error problem/message happen to me when I updated as well.
    Same error message pop up, but no "You must restart for Anydvd to work properly" message like it has in the past.

    I am about to reboot to see if that fixes the problem.

    Running Vista SP1. Please let me know if you need any more information from me.

    EDIT-Reboot DID fix the problem.

    James,

    Patch notes for AnyDVD 6.4.0.4 mention that it's now possible to install AnyDVD wihtout requiring a reboot:

    So, I take it then that that patch note is incorrect, and we need to manually reboot (at least for now)?

    It is possible. I didn't need to reboot in Windows XP Pro 32 bit Service Pack 2 nor in Vista 64 bit ultimate edition Service Pack 1 with 6.4.0.4.

    If your drives are active at the time of installation, you may require a reboot (but Anydvd should really be forcing a popup message asking for one).

    I suspect the feature needs to be ironed out a little bit more.
