Sigh ... yup, I was afraid of this issue. I decided to try installing it anyway and the older "activation" on my dead drive is preventing my activating this replacement drive (on the same system).
Is there a way to fix this problem? I can retrieve files from the old FrameMaker installation directory from my backups ... is there some file there that would solve this issue?

Hi, all. My laptop disk drive started acting flaky, so I had to put a new drive onto the system. In this process, I rebuilt my laptop using Windows Vista rather than Windows XP. I am now at the stage of re-installing FrameMaker 8 and have some questions (one a bit belated). 1. I assumed that FM 8 works fine on Vista (both 32-bit and 64-bit). Is this accurate? (A bit belated of a question, I suppose, but before I waste any more time and end up re-installing XP, I thought I would ask here ... hoping to get a quick response). 2. I did not cleanly do the UNinstall on my previous drive (either for FrameMaker or Acrobat 9) for obviosu reasons. So will re-installing them on my new drive cause any headaches with registering these at Adobe? Since the OS has changed?
