As a matter of course, I have finished my dual boot setup on my NC10.
Have XP on the first partition, Apps and Games on the second Partition and Win7 on the third partition.
All the apps installed onto the second partition work in either OS, apart from AVG which when I boot up into Win7 complains about not recognising the license and prompts me to reinsert license or reinstall AVG….
Reinstalling doesn’t fix the issue, and I made a note of the free license number from Win XP and pasted into the Win7 version with no luck.
What is the best option here? Have a dedicated AVG install on the XP and Win7 partition so they are both separate?
you could try delving n the registery but personally I do complete clean installs on the vast majority of apps
Well saying about delving into the registry, I have actually done that to change the default Program Files dir to the D: drive….for both OS’s
What happens if you install from both versions of windows but to the same folder on the ‘D’ drive.
Maybe it will write all the registry info required to identify the software is installed but both may keep ‘D’ drive upto date ?
I have never tried this but it might work so may be worth trying as would only need to un-install and re-install again.
