Exception Has Been Thrown By The Target Of An Invocation

Question

I have a brand new Dell running Windows 7, 64-bit which I installed a new version of Easy VHS to DVD on. Everything works fine if I select "Record DVD" and go direct from my Video 8 to DVD, but if I select "Record, Edit and Save" and try to import a file I have saved with this program, I get the error message "Exception has been thrown by the target of invocation." I have gone back and forth with support trying to get this to work but they have no idea what is causing it. I've re-installed the program, repaired the program, made sure Windows was up to date, made sure all my drivers were up to date, created a new administrator account, shut down my anti-virus, shut down all my start up programs, tried importing different size videos and sent support my DXDiag output but it still fails. The videos run fine on Windows Media player and I can even burn them to DVD with Windows DVD maker but can't open with this program. Any ideas.

What version do you have? There are 4 versions out there and only 2 are compatible with W7. A "new version" does not mean that it is W7 compatible.

Never heard of that one...

 

Can you add that file to Windows DVD Maker???

 

Is this file a captured file (mpg) or is it one you did an Export with?

 

Have you tried captureing a new file, keep it short, and adding that one?

The file is created with Easy VHS to DVD and I can open and burn it with Windows DVD Maker.

 

Is this file a captured file (mpg) or is it one you did an Export with?

This is a mpg file.

 

Have you tried captureing a new file, keep it short, and adding that one?

Yes, as little as 15 seconds, same result.

Edited to get responses out of the quote.

It appears I'm not the only one with this issue. Look at the posting titled "Bad Installation With Vhs To Dvd I Think"; he has the same version as I do too. Sounds like a bug to me and a serious one, 50% of the product is unusable. Does anyone know when there will be a new release? I'm past my 30 days so I can't return the product so I'm stuck trying to get it to work.

Don’t be silly, this version came out 3/2010 and NO ONE has had this problem before… :glare:

 

The post you cite is not a good example… He has attempted to “fix it” by throwing more software at it! Now he is posting in the 2011 area :(

 

I want you to try this, exactly as detailed!

 

Remove the USB Device!

 

Do the Prep Steps to the letter!

 

Then start to install the Suite, only pick Repair when it is offered.

 

Reboot and give it try, both with the old files as well as a new capture.

 

If that doesn’t work, then I want one of the files :mellow: (I'll explain how if needed)

I followed your instructions but it still fails. Before doing that I set up a chat session with Dell and they took over my computer checked everything out. In the end they were just as perplexed as the rest of us.

Then this is what I would do…

 

Remove the USB device, in fact place it in another room!

 

Turn OFF your anti virus.

 

Download-Install-Run the Revo Uninstaller Revo

 

Use the Revo, in Moderate mode, to uninstall V2D.

 

Create a NEW USER Account with Administrative Privileges. Reboot and log in to that new account.

 

Now install the software while the USB device is in another room and your AV is OFF.

 

Reboot and only now allow the USB device back into the room.

 

Do a fresh capture with V2D and try it.

 

Some of this may be overkill but each item has been used to get stubborn installs running again…

 

I cannot stress enough that you must follow the instructions to the letter otherwise it will fail!

I did everything exactly as written but it still fails. To make matters worse, I now have trouble launching the program without errors which used to happen before intermittently. When I launch the program, I get the error message “Roxio Easy VHS to DVD has stopped working A Problem caused the program to stop working...". Sometimes the program will still open and but then fails when I try to open a file, but other times it will just close. I wonder if I have a bad install disk? Also, you and support have been after me to update my computer but this is a brand new computer; maybe that's the problem. Is it possible there's something new in this machine that you hadn’t anticipated? I'd just like to get my money back at this point. I've got so many hours into this and still can’t use it and am past the 30 day return window.

All manufactured computers are built using a QC Approved disc images for various software and equipment options...

 

Meaning once a disc image is tested and APPROVED, it LOCKED and no updates are ever applied until the mfg is willing to pay QC to create and test a new image.

 

The short version of that means that nearly all PC's leave the factory are out of date as soon as he image is loaded onto the HDD ;)

 

In the past we have seen out of date Mouse drivers blow software out of the water :lol:

 

Video Card drivers are issued almost monthly and Roxio relies heavily on them for co-processing.

 

I cannot say with any certainty that it will fix your problems, but you won't know until you get it done :P

I don't know what to say, I've updated everything that needed it.

I know this is an old thread, but I had this same error when clicking on Export and just found that if I unplug my Roxio Video Capture USB device, then I could Export my edited videos. Perhaps this will help someone in the future.

After installing Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus with latest update on my eMachine EL1333G-01W, Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 when attempting to run the program the error “Exception Has Been Thrown By The Target Of An Invocation.” Before giving advice be aware I am not new at the computer stuff; 54 years in the business as a professional hardware and software engineer. Not being prudish, just straight talk. Then I installed it on my wife’s PC, same as mine minus many other programs, and it works fine. Guess hers is just sweeter than mine. Suggestions?

Well, I already did that. My laptop, Dell 1545 with Win-7 32-bit, it also runs fine. I usually run this program on the laptop due to ease of use with the VHS machine. Still a pain using tapes.....Thanks for responding..

We have seen TWO people encounter this is in the span of 6 years since the product was introduce....

 

With your background, how much time would you allocate to a problem of that magnitude? :lol:

 

If you only had one PC, then you would have to consider Format C:\ as an option -_-
