Creator Nxt Pro 3 Won't Run After Install

Question

After installing Creator Pro 3 whenever I try to start the program, I get the error message - "Creator has stopped working". I purchased the upgrade version and I didn't receive a support code so I can't get any help from technical support. I've tried copying the disk files to my desktop and installing them from there, but that didn't work either.

Well, after going around and around trying to get some support from Roxio (maybe worthy of a separate thread/rant another time :) ), I finally figured out how to get my program working. When I initially installed the program, I chose not to install "BackOnTrack" and "Secure Burn", as I only wanted to install the main program. I went back and installed these two programs and after restarting the computer, everything appears to be working. I guess these programs aren't optional after all!

-after installing Creator Pro 3 [he meant Creator NXT Pro 3, I think] without BackOnTrack or Roxio Secure Burn he couldn't start the program

-he purchased an upgrade, so didn't get a support code

-he tried [re]installing from files copied to his hard drive, without change

-he finally went back and installed BoT and RSB and everything worked.

-he guessed BoT and RSB might not be optional

-no that is not correct

This is not very helpful, and could be downright misleading. Which of the five statements Mcpix made are you two people disputing or supporting?

Where can you buy a upgrade version that is less than a retail version?

 

I see only a physical boxed version or a download version of the retail Creator NXT3 for sale.

I did the same type of install as Mcpix Newbie on a clean windows 10 and experience the same type of failure when I Installed Bot and RSB every thing worked

Thanks Bbhughes.

 

I went and did the same thing, custom installing NXT Pro 3 on a clean Windows 10 and leaving off BoT and RSB.

It worked fine and is still doing so, indicating that the selective install can work okay.

 

I don't know why the installer played up for Mcpix and you, but I think it was an installer problem rather than because you chose not to have BoT and RSB.

I suspect that it was running the installer again which cured the problem, more than adding in the optional programs. Over the past few years Roxio's installers seem to have been a lot more wobbly than they used to be. [They're not alone, Windows 10 took many attempts]

 

Regards,

Brendon
