We are running Windows 7 - 64-bit with Windows Media Player 12 and Overdrive Media Console. All of our PCs are "frozen" with DeepFreeze which is similar to CleanSlate or any other rollback/disk recovery applications upon reboot.
On public PCs, this is not an issue BUT our staff PCs are frozen too with a thawed area for ebook downloads and other work-related files. Here is our dilemma: staff download an eBook with full DRM attached. The book plays but the next day, the book remains but not the licensing as it is hidden somewhere on the C: drive and cannot be re-routed to the "thawed" storage area we have the books in.
In earlier version so Windows Media Player, you could change the target location of the DRM licences to follow wherever you stored the books. WMP12 does not allow this. The registry entry for this is in binary from what I can tell, hence having to be a software engineer to address such a tweak. You also can't downgrade to an earlier version of WMP to get the target function back.
If anyone has any input, that would be great.
DeepFreeze Igloo is a migration tool that allows one to exclude by redirection folders/profiles/registry keys... However, seems DRM on Win7 64-bit is a bit more convoluted than we had thought.
