After reading numerous posts on this site almost afraid to ask the following but....

Installed Creator 2009 w/o uninstalling Easy Media Creator 10.  While working with Sound Editor, program will not recognize WAV file.  It does recognize WMA.  Never had a problem with EMC10 so thought I would uninstall Creator 2009, uninstall EMC 10 and re-install Creator 2009, or just go with EMC 10 considering all the problems I read about with Creator 2009.  When trying to uninstall Creator 2009 receive the following error:  Setup encountered an error during installation.  Error code 04c7.  What now?

Take it easy on me, I am no way close to a guru.  I just try my best to run the programs.....

Oh, oh, you broke it now!  laugh.gif

So you want just EMC 10 on your PC right? The Clean Install directions are  Here, make sure you print out the one for your OS (XP Vista).

If you want 2009, the Clean Install is linked in a pined post at the top of this forum.

In either case you will have to follow the Clean Install to the letter!

Use the More or Less method. (Don't do More than it says and don't do Less!)

I'd be extremely careful using the clean uninstall method.  If by chance you corrupt the registry, restoring it is NOT for the weak hearted.  My recommendation would be to create a restore point prior to installing EMC 2009.  If it doesn't install correctly or won't run after the install, then you can restore to the point before you attempted the install.  

In my humble opinion, this is a lot safer than fooling around with the registry.  Very dangerous.  There are some entries in the hives used by EMC that CANNOT be restored while Windows is running.  That means manually editing/entering registry entries.  Be very cautious!!!!!

And so it goes...
