It was on "manual" and I switched to "automatic" and rebooted. I reopened Roxio Creator 9 Home and that took about 1-2 minutes. I then tried to open VideoWave from the Roxio Home page ... that was almost 5 minutes ago. This is not a low-end PC (see below) and there is no reason on Earth why this program should take forever to open, if it does at all.
Like many other people, I am sick and tired of the b.s. I've had to put up with to get this program going. It works one minute and won't work the next. Before reading your suggestion, I was able to open VW but when I tried to open a different proejct, it froze.
I've just ordered Vista and from what I've read, it seems to have a DVD authoring program. I'll try that before I make my decision about buying another program. I HAVE HAD IT WITH ROXIO and will never, never, never buy another one of their programs again. They clearly don't care about their users because if they did, someone from their Tech support team would be responding to these forums and offering help.
In the 6 months I've been complaining about EMC 9, not one single Roxio person has emailed me or replied to a forum. Their tech support hours stink and are very user un-friendly. I can get into the on-line tech support once every 6-10 tries and when they do answer me, the answers are vague. And, as I've mentioned before, don't even get me started on RoxAnn.
I asked RoxAnn recently about Vista and the response I got back had nothing to do with Vista. What language is RoxAnn supposed to be? Chin-glish? Clearly she doesn't understand English.
BTW It's now been about 12 minutes since I launched VideoWave and nothing has happened. I tried launching PhotoSuite and got the splashscreen, but it's frozen and may or may not open sometime within the next hour.
