I just bought and installed Mega Mahjongg today. Installation went fine, but apparently this program will not run unless you keep the installation CD inserted in the CD Drive. Is this correct??? If so, Why??

Hi Oldeyes,

Many of Encore's older products require the CD to be in the drive - and the reason for that is, basically, copy protection (to prevent someone from illegally sharing the software with others).

Thank you!
Is there any way to know which of Encore's products require the CD to be in the drive, before you purchase the product?

Hi Oldeyes,

There is no way that I know of to determine which of Encore's products require the CD to be in the drive by just looking at the package. But, the 2008 Hoyle products require the CD to be in the drive only the first time the program is used. Once the CD is properly initialized, it is not required to be in the drive.
