      Can Sky Anytime and 4od co-exist?

      Both Sky Anytime and 4od use Kontiki, but they install Kontiki to different folders. Can the two co-exist?

      I originally installed 4od, but ran into problems. In retrospect it was probably the same firewall problems that I eventually sorted to get Sky Anytime working. In the process of getting Sky Anytime to work I removed 4od and changed firewalls. I'm loathe to break Sky Anytime by trying to install 4od, but it would be useful to have both on the same PC.

      I would never install Kontiki again, When most users find out what it does to your computer/laptop, People actually get put off using it, Especially those not so comp-techi!

      Re: Can Sky Anytime and 4od co-exist?

      It would appear it's just about possible, but hardly a happy relationship... I had both of them running successfully (as in they both downloaded content) but 4oD insists on running at startup, a setting that can't be disabled unless you stop KHost and KService from running using MSConfig. This of course means that Sky Anytime won't work...

      In the end, I gave up on 4oD and uninstalled - Sky Anytime seems to have survived this for now

      Strange.

      I've had both Sky Anytime and 4od working together for some time now. I've dowloaded wih the 4od symbol on the taskbar but have been careful not to have downloads going from both at the same time.
