Possible to install and use MMSW6 with a NetBook??

Postby ChrisHarvey » May 26, 2009 2:46 am

Hi,

I'm happily using MMSW6 with my laptop, but was just curious if it's possible to use the program with one of the new NetBooks, as they don't have a physical CD/DVD drive. I bought the physical disc version of MMSW6, but I assume it would be possible to install on the NetBook via download (or even after transferring the install files to USB) and then input the required activation codes, etc? (Obviously it would have to be one running Windows rather than Linux operating system)

I just wanted to check this in case I consider a NetBook in the future. If it ISN'T possibe, then a NetBook would simply be out of the question for me, so it's something I need to know.

Thanks,
Chris

I just tried installing MMSW6 on my netbook and the instant roadblock is the resolution. The program will not install because the low resolution of the netbook's display. There must be a work-around for this!

Hi Chad,

I had the same problem and immediately panicked! I needn't have as I soon managed to get the program installed...

It's almost a month ago now, so can't remember EXACTLY what I did, but I THINK I merely exited, cranked the resolution up to MAX (1024x768) and then reinstalled. VOILA!

If this doesn't work, I'm sure one of the support team will help you out. All I can say is I had success with my Eee PC 710 and am now happily using MMSW6 without problems!!! :-).

Best of luck,

Chris
