GHOST 8.2: Staying 'legit' with BartPE-XPE ???

"... i386\Shell\Ghost contains

=a,,3  ..."

Since I have already purchased two retail boxed copies of Norton Ghost 10.0, I legitimately have
restoreghost.exe
and
ghostexp.exe
on hand.

My question is twofold: (1) can
ghostsrv.exe
and
ghostcdr.dll
be incorporated into a BartPE-XPE (reatogo edition) CD in a practical fashion; and (2) if so, then how do I lawfully go about obtaining obtaining
ghostsrv.exe
and
ghostcdr.dll
at an absolute minimal price.

El_Pescador, good question – and I hope that a satisfactory answer comes to light.

It seems to me that your best recourse in this circumstance may be to contact Symantec directly.

EP,

I've seen BartPE CDs that contain these files. The files enable GhostCast server and the ability to burn images to CD/DVD. I don't need these features. Would you use them?

El_Pescador, what do the folks at the Symantec Store say?

As to the GhostCast server, almost certainly not.  The ability to burn CD/DVDs - probably not - for I would be prone to backup images to either a SLAVE or an external HDD beforehand and then transfer said images to optical media at my leisure.  Nonetheless, in this case my inquiry is to lay all the options out for the good of our community and not for my own accommodation.

Symantec Online Customer Service handed me off to the Symantec Store.  I will post an image of their response once it is received.

OK. I think we need to hear from someone who uses Ghost 8.x professionally from BartPE. Does it have networking, SATA or USB advantages over the DOS version? Does the GhostCast server work? Do professionals avoid BartPE?

Anyone care to help us understand this application?

Well, let's see--a Corporate Ghost license runs about $40 each with a minimum of 10 licences (
Purchase License
) --maybe we could get together and send Rad $40 each--and if we can find 10 folks to go along--Rad could purchase the 10 licenses and then distribute the copies to the 10 investors.

Hmmm....I wonder if Symantec would let us do that?!  Cheesy

I suspect there is a bit of "tongue-in-cheek" in the proposal above.  Nonetheless, I find it very appealing indeed from my perspective.  But yet, on the other hand, I fear it smacks of pursuing the so-called esoteric as long as "rank-and-file" users continue to be confronted with the bulk-purchase condition.  I have been informed - but without verification - that
ghostsrv.exe
and
ghostcdr.dll
can be downloaded for a fee at several sites on the Internet.

Here it is almost three weeks later, and I am still awaiting actual contact from Symantec Authorized Technical Support.  After assuming ample time had elapsed for said contact to occur, I went ahead and responded to the Symantec Customer Support Feedback survey - the results of which are shown below:

El_Pescador, if it were not so sad, this series of communications would be humorous.  Here is a case where you have “cash-in-hand” and want to make a purchase (or, at least, get more information about making a purchase), and there is no meaningful reply.

Maybe you should send Symantec an email with the subject line “Why Won’t You Take My Money?” – and see if it grabs the attention of anyone.  Wink
