I have just signed up for the 30-day trial of DrivePool on my Vista Media Center PC. This was much more convoluted than it should have been.
My Media Center PC is not connected to the internet, so I followed the steps described in the user manual to cut and paste the request code into the web site, and then cut and paste the response code into the licence window. This is where the problems started, because the entry field to paste the response into was off the bottom of the screen, even with the window moved up as far as possible.
I run my Media Center with the screen resolution set to 1228x690, so I temporarily changed the resolution to 1920x1080, to ensure that all of the licence window would be on the screen. But that did not solve the problem, because now the "Validate" button was off the bottom of the window (note: off the bottom of the window, not off the bottom of the screen).
Why was this? Well, it was because I use my Vista system with the font size set to medium, and the size of the licencing window is too small to accommodate anything other than small fonts. So I had to change the font size back to small (Start->Control Panel->Display->Font Size), reboot, complete the licencing procedure, change the font size back to medium, reboot, change the screen resolution back to 1228x690.
You need to make the licencing window scrollable, to avoid this problem.
