    Hi, I want to use a certain part of Nero and it says some files are missing, reinstall the CD. When I try to install the CD it installs to a place that won't accept it. It says That there are files already there and installing nero will erase the files. Every place I choose to install it says the same thing. How can I install the missing files without losing files I already have. It doesn't tell me which files will be deleted.
    Confused,

    I would uninstall Nero from Add/Remove programs then restart....then install Nero and checking and applying all Nero updates from their site.

    I went to the website and it will work but I don't have my serial number. I went to the registry to find it as it says on the page but I have everything but the word infoat the end
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Ahead \ Nero-Burning Rom \ Info” Without the word info, I can't retrieve my serial number.

    I found my serial number in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ahead\Nero-Burning Rom\Info

    The same number is also in

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ahead\Nero Fast CD-Burning Plug-in and

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ahead\NeroVision\Info

    so you might try looking there.

    If you have the original install disk or if you registered your copy with Nero you could find it there.

    Hi, I have some good news, and some good news. 1. I took a chance and installed from the disc. It only deleted the files that were going to be installed again. # 2.
    The reinstall was successful and everything is operational. You guys gave me the courage to venture ahead. Thanks
