Well - I tried opening another account as administrator and named it Roxio, then opened up PhotoSuite 9 and tried to access photos on my computer - Still getting "Runtime error".
Also checked Help in the application and noted that it stated this was Windows Version (Build 3790) Service Pack 1.
From your notes it looks as though this version is not eligible for Roxio Patch 9.1.
One other thing has happened as well - Since removing Roxio from my system and re-installing it. I have all the different programs but no longer get a MAIN menu page along with the automatic Desktop Icon. Don't know what's happened.
Just more information - When I originally purchased Roxio 9, I was having trouble downloading the program for back up purposes and if my memory serves me correct - I contacted someone at Roxio/Sonic and they mailed me Disc 1 and 2, which I have used before this without trouble. The software on the discs have asingle application/exe file but I cannot see any details on what is being downloaded other than in dialogue boxes that appear during installation. Sorry to be a problem and also long winded - Still looking for a solution.
