WinDVD 11 Pro (Trial) gives the same error message for Intel i7-3770 and i3-2100 with built-in graphics. Tried SP1 but it said it wasn't needed. WinDVD Advisor Tool
says it doesn't recognize the internal graphics (exclamation mark) and CPU (question mark). However, since the Advisor Tool is stored at /akdlm/6763/downloads/WinDVD/9/WinDVDAdvisor.exe, it looks like it hasn't been updated since WinDVD 9...?!
SP1 is from 2011-11-11 (and is the only available update) and i7-3770 (with HD2500, and HD4000 in it's sister CPUs) is from the summer of 2012. Usually BD software needs to be updated regularly to work with the latest discs even, and I imagine also due to new hardware. PowerDVD has updates several times per year. Sounds like an update is needed?
So the conclusion seems to be that WinDVD (any version) does not work with Intel CPUs with built-in graphics
(probably the most popular CPUs around, and very suitable for BD playback).
I have contacted support via e-mail but after 3 completely useless replies they finally say the Trial version does not entail free support. What support? And what's the purpose of Trial versions if not to test WinDVD on a system before buying it?
I am flabbergasted and taken aback (simultaneously)...
Also it is too bad this forum is so hard to find via Corel's main site.
