    Easy Media Creator 9 stop working

    Hi Bruce. Thanks for the quick reply. Here's the deal... Roxio works fine on: Dell Dimension 3000 1.25 GB RAM P4 2.8 GHz NVidia GeForce FX 5200 with dual 19" LCD But fails to start on: Dell Inspiron 9400 2 GB RAM Dual Core Intel T2250 @ 1.7GHz Mobile Intel 945GM Express Chipset Family display adapter Now, keep in mind that EMC used to work on the Dell laptop. It only failed in the past couple of months which MAY coincide with an IE7 "upgrade" but maybe not. Also, I'm using IE7 on my desktop so I can't see where that would be the culprit. Anyhow, as a web app developer, I can't uninstall IE7. I'm currently going through the Clean install process. I'll let you know how it turns out.

    EMC 9 fails to start

    I know I'm a little late to the party but I'm having the same problem...except for one thing. EMC 9 works just fine on my Dell Dimension desktop with Norton AV, XP SP 2, and IE 7 installed. However, it fails to start on my Dell Inspiron 9400 laptop with Norton AV, XP SP 2 and IE7. It used to work but suddenly quit about 3 months ago. I appreciate all the work that DCB did but I can't understand at all why I need to dink around with my registry to get this hog to work. Jeez, I have Java based dev environments that don't need this much coddling. Isn't there a patch from Roxio or something simple? In the absence of anything better, I guess I'll try the reinstall method when I have 3 hours to kill.

    Easy Media Creator 9 stop working

    Same problem here. Using Roxio Easy Media Creator 9 on Win XP SP 2 on a Dell Inspiron 9400 laptop. It used to work fine but about 3 months ago, it just decided to quit opening for me. EMC9 works just fine on my Dell Dimension desktop with Win XP SP 2, however. Has anyone found a reasonable fix for this yet? The comments over at this PCMag.com review have me concerned that EMC is just a POS. Bummer - I kinda liked it when it worked. Thanks.
