Anyone got PhotoDesk running on VRPC? And if so, how?

I have got Photodesk working. I had to install it from the original CD, as the copy protection won't allow it to be copied, possibly because the filing system name had changed.

It was thye Olympic edition, and I had to enter the registration details again.

I am a bit stuck with Photodesk. I am about to retire my RPC and move whatever I still want to VAmac. Works fine so far, !Artworks is doing well BUT !Photodesk gives me trouble. "Suspected copyright infringement" or some such from the copy moved from the RPC. Next I looked for the CD... but then remembered that it had come on floppies as did FX etc. (I haven't even found these yet :-( but I found the serial number so I could install it if I had it on CD. So far so bad :-( What next???
I would be grateful for any help. ...
Hmmm... is there not a file somewhere in !Boot that could be fed the serial number? Or does it read out the machine and objects to being on a different one? Help!!! ;-)
And thanks for any useful suggestions...

I have just recieved an upgrade disc for Photodesk, my oryiginal was on floppies, and installed it without any problem. Cost 42ukp to upgrade 3.03L to 3.08. I've not tried to use it yet but I expect it to work fully.
It does appear difficult if not impossible to copy it, I think it looks for the CPU ident or something. Installing from the CD rom works, it can't record any data like the floppy can.
