i downloaded the trial version of sd and it only gave me one use out of it, now when i start sd up it tells me that the trial version has expired? can someone tell me about this please. i was trying to see if i wanted to try this product before i decied to buy it but it seems that it looks like it has alot of bugs.
i really liked street deck i liked what i saw at intel and on there website but i see alot of bugs in this thing. If i have to tweak around with it and install updates to get it to work just right then how due i know if i will work flawlessly on my system i mean i dont want to spend hours to get it to work right. what if i had a customer that wanted to buy a setup, what do i tell him that i need to spend a few hours setting up a configuring this for them. ugh no that would be my install time that i would be wasting since i wouldnt be charging for labor for 4-5 hours that insane. maybe i will just wait or something for a more stable software that i can install out of the box and set up in a few minutes and have my customers installed at out of the shop within in 2-3 hours instead of 2-3 hours to install and 2-3 hours to config.......
let me know you guys feel and if there is any dealers or shop owners let me know how this would affect installs....
I too got one single use out of StreetDeck and the 2nd time i openend it, it went to the registration screen, i clicked to skip and continue with the demo, and it boots me out complaining the trial has expired. I would really like to at least get a feel for the demo on my home pc before i purchase it for my carpc. (After verifying the demo works on the carpc)
folks - use the dev environment: start - all programs - street deck - tools - development environment (beta). This way you can play around with it all you want.
Having gone from media car to media engine to road runner to this over the last 3 years, I have to say that beyond a shadow of a doubt this is the best front end out there. Also - the folks developing it are very responsive and quick to incorporate features.
Don't let this one bug - although annoying for sure - detract you from giving this thing a good spin before you count it out.
My 2 cents,
Thanks S4Per, this will help me at least get my feet wet and decide if i like it enough to shell out for it now.
I concur, Update streetdeck and it works
Start Button > Programs > StreetDeck > Online Update
Sorry, but I still have this problem.
What I did:
I had this issue with 184.108.40.206, so I just set up 220.127.116.11 and it worked (horray!). Upper right of screen said 30days left. I closed and restarted StreetDeck and it sill worked. Then shutdown laptop and put in car. When I restarted I got the 0 days message again. Brought it back to desk and it still does not work. Some details about my build if it helps: XPSP2 on Dell Latitude D600 with two bootable partitions on internal drive, carputer is installed on E, workputer on C. I have a second USB drive in the car. A port replicator at my desk and a second port replicator in the car. Maybe StreetDeck does not like moving between port replicators?
