    When I try to install Drive Image7 on to
    WinXP Pro, The error message is:-
    "1607: Unable to install installshield
    Scripting Runtime"
    Any help? I have no idea?

    I bought the Drive Image7 cd few year ago.
    It was part of Drive Image 2000 or Ver 6.

    There must be some upgrade over the years
    Can any user of Drive Image Ver 7 please be
    help to pinpoint the site where an upgrade can
    be found.

    I shall be very very grateful for help?

    Ask for a new CD from the software manufacturer; it may be incompatible with
    current Windows XP.

    b) since when did software housed give out CDs to replace old
    versions.

    DriveImage 7 is so old that Acronis made it available freely for a while.
    You can install it on some Win2000 machine, then burn a bootable Recovery CD
    and use that CD on your WinXP machine.

    Some softwares come with lifetime upgrade, but as you mention, they won't
    give CDs, the user must download the upgrade installation file.

    ....without installing it; used that way, it works with whatever is on the
    HD.

    How could Acronis be distributing a commercial product (for free or at
    any price) that they never owned? That would constitute both piracy and
    copyright infringment (generating revenue is not required to violate
    copyright). DriveImage was a PowerQuest product and PowerQuest got
    gobbled up and made to disappear by Symantec.

    Sorry, I got mixed up. Acronis made TrueImage 7 freely available, which is
    their own product.

    Drive Image 7 has nothing to do with
    Acronis. It is a completely a different
    product. I think you have in mind a
    droduct called Acronis True Immage may be
    ver 7.

    Yes, I said so in my reply to Vanguard a few hours ago. For some strange
    reason your own reply did not make it to this forum until 15 hours after you
    posted it - unless there is a problem with your PC clock.
