Most users should answer "Yes" when prompted to overwrite CDBOOT.F35
during Image for Windows setup. Doing so will ensure that you
have the latest version of the CDBOOT.F35 file. Having the latest
version of CDBOOT.F35 will allow you to create bootable CD/DVD discs
which in turn contain the latest version of Image for DOS.
You will only want to reply "No" to the CDBOOT.F35 overwrite prompt
if you are using your own customized version of CDBOOT.F35. (If
you are running a custom version of CDBOOT.F35, you would know about
it, since you would have had to set it up manually.)
If you are a registered user of Image for Windows, CDBOOT.F35 will
automatically be updated to a registered copy when either of the
following events takes place:
- You manually enter your Image for Windows registration information.
- You use your registered copy of Image for Windows to create a bootable CD/DVD disc.
So, if you are a registered user of Image for Windows, you generally
do not have to worry about CDBOOT.F35. When upgrading to the
latest version of Image for Windows, just overwrite CDBOOT.F35 when
prompted (in accordance with the advice above), and then use Image for
Windows as you normally do.
However, if you are a registered user of Image for Windows, do not
normally use Image for Windows to create bootable CD/DVD discs, yet
still need a registered copy of CDBOOT.F35 for other purposes (e.g. for
use with BINGBURN), you will need to manually "force" your copy of
CDBOOT.F35 to be become a registered copy. To do this, simply use
Image for Windows to initiate a backup to CD/DVD, and cancel the
operation when Image for Windows prompts you to insert the first
disc. At that point,CDBOOT.F35 will have been converted to a full
registered copy. You will need to repeat this procedure
whenever you update Image for Windows and (assuming you also choose to
overwrite CDBOOT.F35 during setup).
