  1. Having purchased a copy of Roxio Creator NXT3 Pro which installed and licensed properly on a Win7 to Win10 upgrade I thought it important enough to share why my 10-yr old copy of Roxio Creator 10 would not work after the !in7 to Win10 upgrade. Creator10 has more than provided me value having been installed and used through the many Microsoft o/s releases...including Window XP, Vista, Win7, Win8, Win8.1 but NOT the new Windows10 Pro 64-bit Upgrade. Turns out this FREE Microsoft upgrade to Win10 Pro will NOT bring over all the Creator10 app typical of a freshly installed Creator10. Symptom was each time I clicked the Creator10 app it would appear but refuse to recognize both my Asus DVD burner and Pioneer Blu-ray burner. Frustration galore! Long story short, you must "new" install Creator 10 onto a "clean" install of Windows 10 Pro in order for Creator10 to function correctly. NXT3 Pro however will install on either a upgraded win7 to win10 o/s as well as a "new" installed Win10 Pro. I now know I can use either Creator10 or NXT3 Pro...both work however NXT3 Pro has more enhancements and "bells and whistles". I am still getting acclimated to using this new Win10 Pro o/s however, this new Microsoft o/s is definitely a keeper. For those who have issues with any of the Roxio products you should seriously consider re-installing Roxio on NOT a upgraded o/s but a "clean" o/s install just to eliminate all uncertainty before spending unwarranted money on a newer version of Roxio. BTW, the same downloaded Win10 Pro iso upgrade allows you to install a "clean" versus upgrade provided you definitely have a legitimate copy of Win7/Win8/Win8.1 Hope this update saves us Roxio customers needless frustration and expense!
  2. I guess I got my money's worth out of my copy of Creator 10. 10 activations of NXT Pro 3 it is....hopefully it will be sufficient in case Microsoft decides Windows 10 will remain viable for at least 10 years
  3. I've been a Roxio disciple for as long as I can remember. Having just upgraded my o/s from Win7 Pro 64-bit to Windows 10 Pro 64-bit my trusted copy of Roxio Creator 10 would no longer function (ex: opening the Creator 10 app would no longer recognize either my dvd or BluRay burners). Needed at minimum a dvd burner and all the freeware burner apps were either virus ridden when downloaded or not too elegant in use. After careful research which clearly stated Windows 10 support I purchased a retail copy of Roxio Creator NXT Pro 3 and patiently awaited delivery while I read all the good/bad/ugly postings and was resigned to the fact it would be a problematic install....NOT! Install went cleanly and just quickly perused through some of the new features over the older Creator 10. I've read some of the Roxio Forum postings indicating a finite number of installs before I might encounter the dreaded ....." too many activations" which concern me. I need to know what awaits me as there exists a absolute certainty I will be doing a complete "clean" install (versus Microsoft upgrade) in the future...how many activations is a legitimate purchaser allowed before I may encounter this message? I've already performed some test burns using NXT Pro3 and would NOT have purchased this newer version of Roxio had it not been for the fact I had a urgent need to create bootable DVD of this Microsoft iso image. What has changed from Creator 10 to NXT Pro 3 other than all the newer utilities? .... Creator 10 has served me well from Windows XP all the way thru Windows 10 (Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 all worked cleanly with Creator 10 but NOT Windows 10) Thanks everyone for your replies.....S
