I have no technical info. However, 4 years ago I created movies with power DVD.exe but I have no idea of the version. All I know is that I still have .exe info, the autorun file but nothing works and I do not know which software I need on my new computer to open and view these dvd's created as a results of my volunteer work in Guatemala. So, there are precious to me. What can I do because I do not have the old computer anymore.Therefore, I never downloaded your software nor ran power dvd scanner.
