    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation.

Hello Everyone -

Perhaps someone has the knoweledge here on the RR forum to help me resolve an issue I am having where I am trying to re-load a new laptop with ARC500 software I previously purchased.

Some background:
- I purchased the Butel ARC500 software for my Radio Shack Pro-197 scanner through RR for $39.99 about 6 months ago.

- I have the software keys

- Laptop I was using before was a Windows XP. My new laptop is Windows 7

- Before I got rid of my old laptop, I copied the ARC500 software onto a memory stick. My intention was to transfer the ARC500 software from my old computer to the new computer.

- When I copied the software onto my computer and try to run the ARC500.exe file I get an error message as follows: "component msinet.ocx or one of it's dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid"

- I am not sure what the issue is. I suspect it might have someting to do with the software keys but not sure where to enter the keys.

- I thought about just re-downloading the software from the RR Radioshack site to ensure all the proper files get downloaded - but before the download you have to buy the software - which obviously I do not want to do because I already purchased it (again, I have the keys from my prrior purchase)

Question:
- Does anyone have any idea what I may have doing wrong? And, what can I do to get the ARC500 software up and running again on my new computer.

Regards - Wthom100

Just download a new copy of ARC500 from Butel and install it, and re-enter the registration keys.

ARC 500

It is almost impossible to copy a program from one computer to another. There are registry files and other files that get put in folders that you cannot just copy from one version of windows to another. A very few older programs might work that way, but most will not.
