    This may be helpful to those who want to install Music Time Deluxe (which I have been using for many years) on a new computer. I don’t know if it will work for Encore.
    Last spring, my Lenovo laptop’s internal power system failed (dead computer) so I replaced it with a new Lenovo Windows 11 notebook. Like many of you, I lost my MTD program. I recently discovered that by accessing my old SSD hard drive from the dead notebook, I could find the MTD program files in the sub-directory C:\Program Files (x86)\MusicTimeDeluxe-4.0.4. I simply copied the complete sub-directory and pasted it into the new notebook’s same subdirectory. Much to my surprise, it seems to be working. By using my most recent registration key, I can now use the program as before.
    Here’s what I had to do to access the old SSD. After an internet search on how to get at and physically remove the SSD card, I pulled the card from my old notebook. It was relatively easy. Next, I purchased a USB SSD hard drive enclosure which is basically a USB adapter for a SSD hard drive (about $20 on Amazon). The old SSD card plugs into the enclosure/adapter via USB as an external drive and your old computer’s complete files are available, including system files. I am now happily using my MTD program once again! A bonus is that the old SSD can be used as an external backup drive! Hope this helps.
