Virgin Digital Helper - welcome to the beta test

Forum Editor

Likes # 0

Those of you who are registered for our latest beta testing session should by now have received two emails from Virgin, so you know who the mystery company is! If you haven't yet received emails don't worry, it will happen within 24 hours.

The emails are automatically generated by Virgin's server, and you may ignore the one that mentions a receipt. The other message will contain information that will enable you to download and register yourself on the server (you should enter your email address, plus the registration code that will be in the email).

Once you have downloaded and installed the software please post in this thread to confirm, and let us know if you had any problems with the download and/or installation/registration.

Please do NOT post any other comments, or start any new threads - as soon as we have everyone with a successful download and installation I'll start further threads in which there will be a series of questions for you to respond to.

We're delighted to be able to work with Virgin in this way on what promises to be an interesting test experience. The company will closely monitor your comments, and changes may be made as a direct result of what you have to say.

Please contact me directly via email if you have any specific questions that aren't answered by what I've said here.

{Sorry this is a bit off-topic for the thread... whisper, whisper ...
I've just received an email "We're writing to tell you we've now cancelled your subscription to Virgin Digital Help"... I assume this is intended as part of the Beta test... but just thought F.E. ought to know, in case this is a developing glitch}

The program downloaded okay and I was able to save the program to my chosen location with no problems.

I, like Mark5001, got the error box:
"The operating system is not adequate for running Desktop Digital Helper".

I tried to let my O/S pick its own compatability mode. I got the same error box.

I'm running a year old Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop with a 1.8 ghz cpu, 2gb RAM with Win 7 Professional.
