    I use the same and I haven't had any trouble, though my ancient OED has stopped working altogether.

    Hi Richard
    An update of your OED is possible at a lower price. You need to contact them and show your ancient OED.

    I have played the short time with problem like your...
    It can be resolved by checking some Service like C:\Program Files\Common Files\Macrovision Shared\SafeCast\Install\CDAC13BA.EXE
    It must be startes Manualy or Automaticaly

    Default LDOCE 4 doesn't work with Kaspersky Anti-virus installed

    My problem was: LDOCE 4 doesn't work with Kaspersky Anti-virus installed.
    Fortunatelly, I've found the ansver form my problem:

    LDOCE 4 doesn't work with Kaspersky Anti-virus installed
    Download this file: ldoce4.zip
    Open the folder where the LDOCE CD-ROM is installed i.e.
    c:\program files\longman\ldoce4v2\
    Rename your original 'LDOCE.exe' to 'LDOCE4_old.exe'
    Extract/unzip the ldoce4.zip file and copy the new 'LDOCE4.exe' into: c:\program files\longman\ldoce4v2\
    LDOCE should now work OK.
