Mine doesn't just play automatically and just sits there too.
Mine plays automatically wether I put the disc straight in the drive or cineplayer is already open.
Open the tools tab looks like a spanner you can set cineplayer to be the default player and specify which drive itshould look for the disc.This is with it running under XP pro.
Downloaded 10 yesterday and installed last night so far everything works no problem and thats with EMC 9 still installed.
Did the usual things before installing malware & spyware scan defraged and on installation turned the AV off and disconnected from the net.
I reached it from the home page. I've never been able to get liveshare to work in V8 or V9 i think it's something to do with my router because if i bypass the router it did work but i havn' t tried that with V9.
It can be done if you open the photo project from the c drive it opens up in photosuite you can then add extra pages and then copy paste from the other pages. To change the photos go to the top menu photo , open/create then replace photo.
Just tried it and mine is the same. Tried a repair from the control panel made no difference. My copy of EMC9 is the downloaded version don't know if that makes a difference? The version # from help about is (Build 900B800I ENU). Also the brush size is 2min-16max.
