I purchased a screensaver diskette a few years ago and it worked fine. I recently purchased a new computer. I tried to install the screensaver diskette but I get a window that states "Illegal Install"
"Diskette is not original copy" I tried to contact the company I purchased it from but they are out of business. The company was Soft World's Fair. Is there a way to unlock the data on the diskette? :thumbsup: :flowers: :trumpet:

Usually there's a text file or somthing that was written to when you used it previously that basically tells it that you've used it already.

Extreamely low-level copy protection.

Couldn't give you an exact solution for this specific thing, but just general knowledge.
May want to google the problem.

Try opening the floppy and see what files are in it.
