I see a lot of people asking about how to do stuff with CDRWin... Does it not come with a manual or at least a help file or something? I mean, making copies of CD's isn't that difficult, I'd think they could explain how to do it in just a few pages.

Maybe its got something to do with the 'nice' surprise that they put into it.

ie They change the activation key algorithm every new version... but still accept older keys. However the older keys cause the program to burn rubbish instead. This is to stop idiots downloading keygens and obtaining the program illegally. After all these kinds of people aren't likely to buy it away. So the authors have every right to screw these people as they were going to screw the authors.

Well, first that's not entirely true. A lot of manuals are complete crap. However, burning CDs is so simple, that even a badly written manual should be enough help.

And, I wasn't really thinking as much of a full-blown manual as I was a quick-start guide type thing... You know, those things that show 4 or 5 basic steps on how to get started. Or even tool-tip guides would probably be enough.

I agree. In fact, when I first heard about that, I thought it was excellent. (Yes, I have an evil streak, but it's a pre-requisite to being a software tester. :p) However, why would this affect people's ability to burn CD's with it, unless they ARE trying to use a keygen or distroibuted keycode?
