Roxio Creator 2011 On Windows 8

Question

The program won't run on Windows 8.

 

It also won't run when Windows 8 is set to run as compatible with earlier versions of Windows. Even if 2011 is not being updated to Windows 8, there is no reason for the program not to run when Windows 8 is set to be compatible with earlier versions.

There is every reason for the program not to run in Windows 8. It is not compatible with Windows 8.

Please read this link, http://corel.force.c...kA060000000L62o and believe it, especially when they say there . . .

 

Previous versions of Roxio branded software that are not listed above as "Windows 8 compatible" will run into compatibility issues and are not supported by Corel on Windows 8.

Leaving aside my annoyance that a program I bought within the last 18 months doesn't work, I was surprised that it wouldn't run even when Windows 8 is set to be compatible with earlier versions of Windows. Of the numerous programs I run, this is the first which won't even open with compatibility settings. In the range of non-business products I buy, this was a costly one. i won't be buying a Corel product again.

P.S. While many older versions of products are not supported, I have never thought that "not supported" means "obsolete".

No one has forced you to run Win8 ~ we call that self-inflected... -_-

 

Likewise you chose not to upgrade to the next two versions as they came along, farther sealing your fate...

 

Microsoft chose to ignore all the existing software out there in creating Win8...

 

Roxio chose not to go back Three Version and try to make it work...

 

But somehow you think it is everyone else's fault :lol:

Strange to read this as I have no problem running Roxio creator 2011 on my Windows 8 pro (upgraded from Vista) laptop, even when I ran Microsoft's compatibility test it said it was OK. :)

Have you tested all the functions of Creator 2011, Virginia, or just one or two?

 

[Creator 2011 is a lot bigger inside than it looks from outside.]

I've tested those functions which I use, label print, DVD & CD creator/recorder, audio recorder & burning a disc from an .iso file. :)

I've been using the program since January this year so we'll see how long it will last, if it fails on any of features I use then I'll upgrade.

Good luck. I would be interested to know how you get on.

 

If you run into too many snags and feel the need to upgrade, I'd suggest that Creator 2012 is probably the best way to go. It has more surviving features than Creator NXT, and should be obtainable quite cheaply in reliable places.

I've been using Creator 11 on my Samsung laptop running Windows 8 for about five or six months now, and while I do have an annoyance working with Sony Mt2S files (sometimes I can't hear the audio when I'm editing them), most everything esel has been working fine. I just installed it and away it went.
