    My experience is that Windows 8 will allow you to run Roxio NXT, while Windows 8.1 will hang my project in different places. I tried to run Roxio NXT MyDVD, while the movies come from Roxio NXT VideoWave. So, no... do not try to run Roxio NXT in Windows 8.1.

    ...so now I am going back to Windows 8... Well, I can also tell you what happens when I try to troubleshoot the thing: Windows themselves set compatibility flags on the programs, but even so it does not help.

    Roxio Nxt Pro And Windows 8.1

    Hello again! Just to add a last entry to this thread... I believe I have reasons to believe that Windows 8.1 is the culprit. I have now had the time to reset my machine back to factory settings from DVD and perform the update to W8.1 the recommended way. It takes some time to get the DVDs. :-) Then I installed Roxio NXT on Windows 8.1 that has never had anything installed on it before (factory reset means total reformat of discs etc) Then I did the same on a totally new machine out of a sealed box. The first machine was HP Envy 23, the second HP Pavilion 23. On both machines under Win 8.1 same results: MyDVD will hang in different places and on all of my projects except one, which is very small. For the sake of testing I installed Win 7 UE on the Envy. And then I installed Roxio NXT. It worked like a charm. No hanging in any of the projects. So my conclusion is: do not try to run Roxio NXT under Windows 8.1. Thank you MS for delivering once again a product that is not compatible backwards... Sigh...

    Movies are my very own, shot on VHS-C a bunch of years ago. Converted to DVD by a piece of LG consumer-type hardware, bought a few yers ago. Then converted to WMV by Roxio NXT. Editing of very same dmsd files works fine in Roxio NXT on a machine running Win7 (UE) and even on one of my relics running WXP(SP3). I have all my work files on an USB disk always mounted on same letter, so I can move freely between machines. As it works under same Roxio NXT software but another O/S the culprit should be the O/S. ...or a driver...

    Yes, tried to use different Movies. Also tried with Projects created under Windows 8. The last Movie is always the problem, no matter how short. I wonder if it can be the graphic card driver...

    Well, after my Windows got upgraded (automaticall) from 8 to 8.1 I never Went as far as burning. "it starts working" = CPU usage goes up, MyDVD starts to perform an impressive amount of I/O. Sometimes it starts even to update the screen to display new chapter and then it hangs. By "hangs" I mean (in this case) CPU usage =~ 1 thread, I/O = 0, paging = 0, Seems like a tight loop somewhere..

    And when I leave out chapters I do not have any chapter menu. :-)

    I right-click on the Chapter Menu. Normally it would display a pop-up list starting with Delete and ending with Rename AND switch to that Chapter Menu. The "normal" happens with the first Movie, but never with the second. On the second Movie, when I right-click it starts working and then hangs. I have to kill the process the hard way. I have recreated the production with different Movies, same bhavior. The XML file with the Project does not look weird.

    Hello again I followed the recepy and Roxio MyDVD will now start, it will open/create my project... and it behaves exactly the same way as when run in WXP-compatibility. Which means MyDVD hangs when I try to edit properties of the last Movie on my DVD. In the simplest case the first movie has 0 or 4 chapters, the second 4 chapters. When I try to edit the second Movie it will always hang. So the "Could not create process" pop-up has been replaced by "Cannot create simple DVD"-condition. :-(

    OK, I will try your "recepy"... I would like - tough - to point out that I set the compatibility flag only when it did not run in Windows 8.1. :-)
  12. Hello, everybody! I have installed Roxio NXT Pro on a new machine with Windows 8 factory installed.The machine was new. Almost evrything worked as expected with the exception of MyDVD which frequently hang on me, particularly when adding a new movie. A restart of the application usually fixed the issue. Then I got automatically updated to Win 8.1. Since then I get "Could not create process"-popup whenever trying to start MyDVD. Reinstalled Roxio, no change. Reinstalled DirectX 9.0, no change. Tried compatibility Win7,no change. (Strange because I had NXT Pro on Win7 more than 1 year.) Tried compatbility WXP, change to better. But it will Always hang on the last Movie after chapters are created when I try to preview Project or when I try to modify chapter menu for last Movie. So it won't even work in XP-compatibility. Any known workaround for Win 8.1? Grateful for any ideas... Thanks /Z
