Thanks for the responses.
I have the resolution on this 17" monitor set to 800x600 - refresh rate at 75.
Both users of this pc are over 60, and the 800x600 certainly makes it much easier
to read. (Grandpa Bruce should be able to atest to that.)
With that default setting, Roxio EMC8 Home starts fine - no compliants. Even though Roxio
suggests/requires 1024x768. When I select a task, as Creator Classic, I get a warning
message about screen resolution. When I select OK, Roxio changes the resolution to
1024x768, refresh rate to 60, and then displays the Classic Creator screen. Some
other tasks do the same, some don't. When I exit out of Creator Classic the display
returns to 800x600-60, and the EMC8 Home displays. Exiting out of that returns me
to my Desktop. Refresh rate is not back to 75, as the default.
Try it - see if it works the same for you.
