The VirtualVTR 3.0 UPGRADE is only available to users who currently own VirtualVTR 2.x. It requires the user to migrate the Authorization Key from their VVTR floppy Disk over to the new Gallery USB Dongle which comes with the upgrade. In order for this to be possible, users MUST ensure the following:
- They have a Mac with OS 8.6 or newer which can connect to both a Floppy Drive and a USB Dongle at the same time. This will be needed at the point of migration. After migration of the authorization from Floppy to Dongle, the Floppy drive will no longer be required. The machine they will run VirtualVTR on must have USB, either built in, or using a PCI-USB upgrade card.
- The information provided above (ie. Serial Number and Disk Unique ID) must be entered correctly, since they will need to match up to the information embedded in the key floppy disk at the point of migration. If you enter this information incorrectly, the migration will fail. If in doubt, contact Gallery - firstname.lastname@example.org
- In order to migrate the key from the Floppy disk to the Dongle the user must first DEINSTALL the software key from their VirtualVTR machine, back onto the Key floppy disk. If, for some reason, you are unable to deinstall the key to your floppy disk, you will NOT be able to upgrade to VirtualVTR 3.0.
- After migrating the Key to the dongle, the VirtualVTR Key floppy disk can no longer be used. The USB Dongle will be required to run VirtualVTR in OS9 or OSX.
- VirtualVTR 3.0 officially supports Mac OS9.1.x, 9.2.x and OSX 10.2 (and later) only. Earlier versions of Mac OS may work with appropriate USB extensions installed, but Gallery may be unable to provide support for older configurations, (besides the requirement for USB, VirtualVTR 3.0 should, in practice, work on the same OS9 systems as VirtualVTR 2.0).
- VirtualVTR has not been tested with OSX versions prior to 10.2 and these are not supported.
- You should ensure that the drivers for your Video card are available for OSX.
- VirtualVTR for OSX uses Apple's COREMIDI for its midi connection. You should ensure that coremidi drivers are available for your Midi Interface.
