Steps to renaming the DRM folder.
To rename the DRM folder the following steps are to be followed.
1. Open ‘Windows Explorer’. This is opened by right clicking the mouse on the
‘Start’ button and selecting ‘explore’ from the list.
2. Go to C:\documents and settings\allusers\DRM
(The DRM folder is a hidden folder and may not display at this point).
a)
To display this folder , in Windows Explorer click ‘tools – folder options - view options’.
b)
Under the folder titled ‘Hidden files and folders’ ensure the box ‘Show
hidden files and folders’ is checked
c)
Click ‘apply’ and then ‘OK’.
3. The DRM folder can now be seen in the path
C:\documents and settings\all users\DRM.
(As shown below).
4. To rename this folder, click on DRM once, right click the mouse and select the
‘rename’ option. Type in the new name e.g. DRM2
5. Put the Montie DVD back into the PC and start again.
IMPORTANT
When the DRM folder is renamed all previous licences issued by Safetycare installed
on the PC will be deleted. Once the issues with the Media Player are resolved the
previous licence(s) will need to be reinstated.
