Let me tell you where I am now.
The first set of instructions you sent me I did - so I have no roxio/sonic programs. I stripped it all of the pc, really all I had was Creator DE that came with my pc.
I re-booted and i place the cd and it ask what language and there after i get the error message and that is as far as I get.
Do you know of any other issues with W7 that might be conflicting with Roxio, example...Microsoft visual C, Framwork..ect..
Thank you again
I think I got it - I got past the error message - I see what MY issue was..lol The trick was getting to that compatibility mode section with setup - I was not "opening" the drive the cd was in, I was going directly to properties which wasnt showing the set up - I opened the drive - went down to the set up (just as you showed with the screen shot you sent)
Ill update you shortly
