    Re: Ejay - Daemon Tools (virtual drive)

    Is this dance ejay for schools that peopel say it evil?

    If it is then I've got to install it on 16 musci pc's in a couple of weeks time and I'd like to hear more about it.

    What have you tried and what's been the result?

    Apparently the words 'Stake', 'Crossroads' and 'Midnight' are used to describe this particular piece of software quite a bit!

    Re: Ejay - Daemon Tools (virtual drive)

    its just a pain, coz, you can do a full install, but it want's the cd to start the program

    after the program has started you can take the disk out.

    the main problem ive got is kids keep scratching the disks.
    and the cd drives keep getting vandailsed.

    its only for the music room 10 pc's

    ive only had a quick go at getting it working.

    saved an iso image of the disk
    installed dance ejay

    installed Daemon tools
    installed daemon script

    created a script that loads the disk.
    and starts the program
    but it still asks for the disk.

    im assuming that theres some protection on there but thats where i get stuck.

    and yes it is the devil incarnated.

    the other thing that annoys me is that last summer the music teacher spent a stupid amount of money on music software, a load of the sony stuff, cubasis, fruty loops etc, all of which are really good proffessional bits of software, but they necer get used. they only ever use ejay.

    anyway that enough of my ranting.

    any idea's (shooting the teacher is not an option, already though of that one)

    I would think that installing from your image would be the answer as it probably writes a reference to the install drive to a registry key which you could change if you can find it.

    Yep, best thing to do if using a virtual CD, is to make the image, mount it, then install it from there; as the CD drive letter/path usually gets written to the registry or something similar during installation, and the program checks this location when it's ran.

    I recommend you get the newer version, Ejay for schools network edition. Works a bit better than the old version. Does not need the cd to run either! you can just install in to a shared network drive and create a shortcut to the exe.

    Re: Ejay - Daemon Tools (virtual drive)

    Ok I've installed dance ejay locally on the machines and when logged on as a student I get a corrupt install message. But suprise suprise when logged on as admin it works.

    I've even given everyone full control on the folder to see if it's that and then work backwards on the security but that doesn't help either.

    I can't find any registry keys for it either.

    Anyone else got this version installed with no problems?
