W7 x64 Pro/TI 2010 Installation Woes
I'm not very happy with TI 2010 at the moment, because I have spent the day trying to get it installed properly. I had installed it from the DVD that I obtained though Amazon, but kept running into errors when trying to creat a .tib. I decided to reinstall the program, because the first installation had not created the proper services for it to function properly. However it kept refusing to uninstall, regardless of the methods that I tried, until I used Revo Uninstaller to delete the registry keys and program files. During that process, I learned that the version of TI installed was only x32, rather than x64 as it should have been.
Going to the Acronis website, I learned that I would have to register this software in order to download the latest version. When I did that, it said that I only had 30 days of free support, which I found surprising because of the ridiculously short period involved. Yet that would not have been so bad, except then it said that this option had expired on August 28, 2009...months before I even bought it.
Yet being not too detered, I proceeded with installing build 6053, but on reboot, an error dialog popped saying that the program had ceased to function, and whether to check for info online or close the program. Closing it, I then checked in services to find that there were indeed 3 items listed, so I tried to open the program, but it said that it had found an older version installed, and to reboot to correct that.
When I rebooted again, I got the same error dialog as before, so I closed that, and tried to open the program again. This time I got a different error dialog as here cited:
path = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Acronis\TrueImageHome\tdrpapi.dll"
Tag = 0x665F1F51CFA70F02
The specified module could not be found (0xFFF0)
code = 8007007E)
Tag = 0xBD28FDBD64EDB8B9
Before I throw up my hands, and toss this software in the trash, can someone give me a hint as to how to get it to work properly?
EDIT: BTW, the tdrpapi.dll does not exist at the path given for it.
