I have version 11 and 12, but have never really used them. My son is now at the age where he would like to try animation. When I try to run Animation Master it says: cd/dvd emulation software has been detected. Please disable all cd/dvd emulation software and restart the game. I have tried to disable all the emulation programs through task manager and right clicking all programs at the bottom right of windows. I still keep getting the error. Is there a way to satisfy these requirements without removing the emulation software completely from the PC? I have no desire to copy program, just learn animation. I contacted support, but they say they only provide support for the current version. Thanx Not sure I want to upgrade until I see how program works.
