Question Upgrading DVD-RB v097 with HC018

1. Downloaded HC018 zip package.
2. Moved HCenc_018.exe, HCgui_018.exe, HC.ini and the matrix directory into ..\DVD-RB\Encoders\HC Encoder directory.
3. Renamed
HCenc_018.exe to HCbatch.exe over-writing the installed version.
4. Moved
HCenc_018.exe back into ..\DVD-RB\Encoders\HC Encoder again.

So I've got:


..\DVD-RB\Encoders\HC Encoder directory.

I did not install the DGDecode .dlls at all. Nor did I do anything with the misc directory found in the zip file.

I fired up Rebuilder.exe and had a ball.

So yeah, it operated correctly (afaik) but I noticed that a) I needed
HCbatch.exe in there to fade in Rebuilders Menu bar: Mode | HC Encoder Mode (without the file it was faded out). b) Launching HCgui_018.exe I needed HCenc_018.exe in there so HCenc info (the button) could id it. c) I renamed HCenc_018 to HCbatch so's I knew I was running with the latest version.

Have I over complicating the upgrade? Or missed anything?

DVD Rebuilder calls very specific filenames. As you have found, you need to change HCEnc_xxx.exe to HCbatch.exe The rest is irrelevant.
