    Title says it all. I have a copy of WinDVD for our Dell laptops and desktops, but I have an IBM laptop that I'm taking out of town with me. I'm assuming its just looking for a registry entry or dll file or something to validate it as a Dell PC. Anyone know where I can look?

    that might fall under the "warez" category on this forum since you're trying to do something with software that it's not supposed to do

    and in that case, there's plenty of sources where you can download a full copy not tied to specific hardware

    If it's a work machine, then you can ask them for the DVD software that came with it.
