TI9 build 2247 is still not worthy of public distribution, and I've about given up until I return here and find a whole bunch of glowing reports that they've finally got a build that's stable. Builds 2245 and 2247 have turned a well behaved machine into a near piece of junk, and, since I depend on it to run a business, I can't take any more chances. Build 2245 threw a kernel32.dll error about 15 seconds after loading. Tech support has yet to give me the courtesy of a response (#361057). Even though it wouldn't run, the machine on which it was installed began to exhibit erratic boot problems (not all boot-time programs would launch, among other things), and my satellite interface would simply shut down and finally wouldn't start even on a successful boot. I uninstalled TI9/2245. Machine one again was well behaved. Then, did a clean install of 2247--this is after running TI8 for months with no problem whatsoever. Now, 9 reports unreadable sectors--corrected by chkdsk, error in an .icc file of no import. Was able to create one image. Had to do a reboot for another reason, and the reboot encountered a SESSION5_INITIALIZATION_FAILURE and its soothing blue screen. Boot to safe mode produced the same error. Only by choosing revert to last good checkpoint would boot run to a good completion. So, at this point, I have no idea the state of the TI environment; I know only that I have had one good boot. I'll screw up the nerve to uninstall TI9 and try to find the TI8 installer. As others have remarked: there's absolutely no excuse for springing software in this state on unsuspecting costomers. I once had the highest respect for Acronis and its technical support response. That has now all changed. Gonna go unstress.
