Runtime Error! With Videowave 13 Roxio 2011

Question

I recently uninstalled Roxio 2009, rebooted, and then installed Roxio 2011. The problem I have is when I open Videowave and click on Add Photo/Video I get the message - Runtime Error! c:\Program Files (x86)\Roxio 2011\VideoUI\VideoWave13.exe The application has requested the Runtime to terminate...

 

There is no additional error code for reference. Roxio tech support has now sent me 9 responses - 7 of these with recommended steps to solve the problem. None have worked yet.

 

I have done all of the following based on tech support recommendations:

* Uninstalled and reinstalled (at least 5 times now). This has been done with Startup items disabled, firewall off, (and with a new Administrator account at least twice)

* Updated DirectX

* Installed MSXML.msi 4 SP3

* Turned off Windows Aero feature

* Uninstalled Microsoft .NET 4 and reinstalled .NET 4

* Ran the DirectX Diagnostic Tool (dxdiag) to confirm DirectX is working properly and sent dxdiag file to tech support for review

* Disabled Roxio SIAB Service, RoxMediaDB13, CommonSDK, Roxio Hard Drive Watcher

 

Additionally I installed a new 1GB Video card and updated the driver to the latest release.

 

My OS is Windows7 Ultimate 64-bit

 

Any experts out there with some suggestions?

 

David

Personally I can't see why they told you to turn off the firewall (that would only affect connection to the registration servers)

 

Did you turn the anti-virus off and close down (NOT pause) any other running apps?

This is the latest response I got and it also failed. 7 or 8 times now I have followed the instructions with the same problem recurring. They said this applied to Roxio 2011 also.

 

Resolution

 

 

The following steps will completely remove any Roxio and Sonic software from your computer.

 

Note: The removal of Creator 2009 from Windows 7 is provided for customers who are upgrading from Vista to Windows 7, and wish to install Creator 2010, which is Windows 7 certified. Creator 2009 is not compatible with Windows 7. To see a full list of Windows 7 compatible products, click here.

 

1. Disable your startup applications using MSCONFIG. This will disable any unnecessary background or system tray applications from loading.

* Go to Start and type "msconfig" (without quotes) into the Start Search field and press the "Enter" key.

* Select the Startup tab.

* Click the Disable All button.

* Click the Apply button, then click the OK button.

* Click the Restart button.

 

To reverse this at the end of installation, go back into MSCONFIG and select Enable All and restart (that can be done once installation is complete).

 

Note: Some anti virus/spyware programs may not be disabled using the steps listed above. You may need to check with your anti virus/spyware vendor on how to temporarily disable them.

2. Remove Creator 2009 through the Programs Control Panel.

* Go to Start -> Control Panel

* Under Programs, click Uninstall a program

* Click Roxio Creator 2009, then click Uninstall above the Name column.

 

 

3. For the step below you will need to show hidden files. This can be done by clicking Start -> My Computer then go up and click on Organize -> Folder and Search Options. Click on the View tab. Make sure show hidden folders is selected and click Apply.

 

4. Delete these folders from your hard drive. Not all folders may be present.

Tech support has had me uninstall and reinstall several programs several times over the past 8 days so I am not absolutely certain. I will follow all of these steps again and make sure any antivirus/spyware programs are disabled.

 

I have the impression the tech support responses I am getting are scripted and not from someone reading through the past 8 days of notes and recommendations in order to fully understand the problem and history. It is to the point where I am being told to do many of the same prior steps and asked the same questions, which really show they don't fully know what's going on.

 

Roxio 2011 was installed about 10 days ago. I have only used it so far for capturing video through the USB capture device, which works fine. I can open Videowave fine but when I click Add Photo/Video I get the runtime error message. Today tech support was again asking which file formats I was adding, asking me to update msxml again, etc.

 

I appreciate your input and you taking the time to respond. I will try the uninstall/reinstall again with antivirus/spyware programs disabled and let you know.

When tech support has me disable services in Sys Config they never direct me to enable them. I don't know whether I should leave Roxio Hard Drive Watcher 12, Roxio SAIB Service, RoxMediaDB13 disabled or not. Any suggestions?

Whoa!

 

The RoxMidiaDB13 is an absolute must!!!

 

VidoeWave will not run without it!

 

The disc driver watcher??? If you don’t rely on Roxio to do your file watching, you don’t need it.

Jim, you must be right on this. I could not open Videowave with RoxMidiaDB13 unchecked so I enabled it, restarted, opened Videowave, but still cannot get past the Runtime Error when I click Add Photo/Video. I am blown away that Tech Support hasn't been able to solve this in 9 days of suggestions of what to do. Thanks for your input. Any ideas?

Make sure you Anti Virus is TURNED OFF!

 

Then start to install of the Suite (again :angry2:), only pick Repair when it is offered.

 

Hoping that will do the trick ;)

Jim,

 

This is today's recommendation from Tech Support:

 

Customer Support writes:

 

Dear David,

 

I can really understand your concern.

 

As the issue persists, I request you to remove all the .Net framework components completely and then try to perform a repair installation of the software and check with the issue.

 

Kindly follow the steps below:

 

Step 1: Remove Microsoft .Net framework components by following the steps below:

 

Open the link below.

http://cid-27e6a35d1a492af7.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Blog_Tools/dotnetfx_cleanup_tool.zip

Save the dotnetfx_cleanup_tool.zip file on to your desktop.

Unzip the clean up tool.

Once done, run the Clean up utility.

Then choose '.NET framework -(All versions)' from the list.

Then click on Clean up now.

 

Step 2: Double click on Roxio Creator 2011 setup file and click on 'Repair' and complete the process.

 

What do you think? Should I do this or just repair as you suggested? They have had me uninstall and reinstall .NET framework several times now (probably because they are sending me scripted fixes rather than looking at what I was already told to do). However, I have never ran the cleanup utility.

Day 9 of suggested fixes from Tech support. After disabling antivirus and disabling startup items and rebooting I did the following as requested by Tech Support:

Step 1: Remove Microsoft .Net framework components by following the steps below:

 

Open the link below.

http://cid-27e6a35d1a492af7.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Blog_Tools/dotnetfx_cleanup_tool.zip

Save the dotnetfx_cleanup_tool.zip file on to your desktop.

Unzip the clean up tool.

Once done, run the Clean up utility.

Then choose '.NET framework -(All versions)' from the list.

Then click on Clean up now.

 

(had to reboot here which Tech Support did not mention)

 

Step 2: Double click on Roxio Creator 2011 setup file and click on 'Repair' and complete the process.

 

(When opening Roxio 2011 .exe file the message comes up asking if I want to check for updates (Tech Support did not mention what to do at this point). I did not choose to do this since I had done this during installation. NO idea whether I should have or not.)

 

Rebooted after Repair completed, opened Videowave, clicked Add Photo/Video and same Runtime Error message comes up.

 

After 9 days of suggested fixes I am beginning to doubt this will get resolved. Any new ideas out there?

 

Thanks.

 

David

Maybe you could suggest to them that they replace your disc?

 

Repeating steps is normal to troubleshooting and often fixes things on the 2nd or 3rd try :lol:

Day 10 of following Tech Support recommendations on how to get Videowave to work. I installed Roxio2011 on my laptop today and it works fine so there must be some conflict/issue with my PC. I used the same installation files for the laptop and PC.

 

This is the latest recommendation from Tech Support:

 

bbabu 7/27/2011

 

Dear David,

 

1. As a workaround to fix the program launch issue, I request you to ensure that Creator 2011 program is not running in Windows Vista compatibility mode on the Windows 7 computer. If so, please follow the steps given below to turn off Vista compatibility mode :

 

* Right-click on the setup package and choose Properties.

* Click on the Compatibility tab in the Properties window.

* In the Compatibility mode section, uncheck the box that is labeled Run the program in compatibility mode for Windows Vista.

 

2. Please right click on the Creator software icon and select "Run as Administrative mode". Now you will able to fix the issue.

 

3.If the issue still persists, we request you to install Roxio Creator 2011 the software from Safe mode which will help to get this issue fixed.

 

Steps to boot from Safe mode:

 

1. Restart the computer.

2. Keep tapping the key F8 when computer starts.

3. Advanced boot menu will be open.

4. Choose 'Safe mode'.

 

Then try to install Roxio Creator 2011 and check with the issue.

 

Note : If the issue still persists then the issue could be with your computer so please contact your system administrator and update the latest firmware.

 

 

Videowave is not running in any compatibility mode - the box is unchecked. Figure I'll try one more time and if it doesn't work then I'll look for another program. Very frustrating.

I recently uninstalled Roxio 2009, rebooted, and then installed Roxio 2011. The problem I have is when I open Videowave and click on Add Photo/Video I get the message - Runtime Error! c:\Program Files (x86)\Roxio 2011\VideoUI\VideoWave13.exe The application has requested the Runtime to terminate...

 

There is no additional error code for reference. Roxio tech support has now sent me 9 responses - 7 of these with recommended steps to solve the problem. None have worked yet.

 

I have done all of the following based on tech support recommendations:

* Uninstalled and reinstalled (at least 5 times now). This has been done with Startup items disabled, firewall off, (and with a new Administrator account at least twice)

* Updated DirectX

* Installed MSXML.msi 4 SP3

* Turned off Windows Aero feature

* Uninstalled Microsoft .NET 4 and reinstalled .NET 4

* Ran the DirectX Diagnostic Tool (dxdiag) to confirm DirectX is working properly and sent dxdiag file to tech support for review

* Disabled Roxio SIAB Service, RoxMediaDB13, CommonSDK, Roxio Hard Drive Watcher

 

Additionally I installed a new 1GB Video card and updated the driver to the latest release.

 

My OS is Windows7 Ultimate 64-bit

 

Any experts out there with some suggestions?

 

Was C2009 installed on W-7? It is not compatible with W-7.

 

Was Windows7 Ultimate 64-bit a clean install or a upgrade from another OS a dirty install?

 

What are you PC specs I failed to see them in any post you've made?

And of Step 3???

 

I have not been able to reinstall in Safe Mode. I always get the message "You must use 'Turn Windows features on or off' in the Control Panel to install or configure Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. When I go there I am not sure which boxes to check or uncheck. I have tried a few combinations and the same message pops up. Any ideas on this? Thanks.

Yes Roxio 2009 was installed. At the time I had not checked for compatibility.

 

Windows 7 was a clean install - not an upgrade.

 

Here are specs:

Your running at the bottom of the specs.

 

For video editing and conversion and DVD playback Intel Pentium 4 2GHz processor or AMD equivalent and 1GB RAM. Multi-core processor with at least 2GB RAM recommended.

Thanks guys for your tips and input over the past month plus. And special thanks to cdanteek for the wakeup call when he wrote "you're running at the bottom of the specs". I decided it was time to upgrade and decided to build my first PC. Got the new PC up and going successfully along with Roxio 2011. Looking forward to all I will be able to do that I couldn't before with the "bottom of the spec" PC.

 

Thanks again.
