    Media Player 9 Engine Update?

    Yep, the file that Terry and Brendon E-mailed to me did the job. After I ran it AVG installed with no more complaints. The Media Player burner still works, too. I really appreciate everyone's help with this and I'm very happy that the problem has been solved. Thank you very much for the assistance. BTW, the AVG appears to be a very nice program and got some great reviews in last month's PC World. Dave

    Media Player 9 Engine Update?

    Everyone, I'm really grateful for all of your help. I tried the link posted above, but it keeps running me in an endless loop between the download file selection page, the "Patch It" page, and the version selection page and never downloads anything. Brendon - please let me know if the patch works for you. If it does, maybe you can E-mail it to me if it's not too large. Thanks, everyone. Dave

    Media Player 9 Engine Update?

    No problem. AVG admits in the error message that v. 7.1 has conflicts with older versions of Roxio. It is a known issue that they say can be cured with a Roxio engine update, and even provide in the error message a hyperlink to the Roxio page where the update is supposed to be located. Except when you go to the page there's an advertisement to upgrade to Roxio v. 8. Since my wife's machine does not have a CD burner, I went out on a limb this evening and used the roxizap utility to see if it would help. It cured the problem and AVG allowed the installation without any further messages. Media Player still functions as a player. I'm really reluctant to do this to my machine because it is used for business purposes and I don't want to take a chance on screwing it up, so I'd like to find another solution. That solution apparently is to update the Roxio applet in MP9, which brings me back to my original question: How can I get an engine update from Roxio? Thanks for everybody's help. Dave

    Media Player 9 Engine Update?

    My W2K installation is patched to SP4+, and CD drivers are up-to-date. I have never burned a file from Media Player, instead using the HP S/W that was supplied with the drive. I'm not sure that the OS patches would be an issue, though, because the AVG error message was very specific: A warning of a conflict with an older version of Roxio CD and DVD Creator and a recommendation to visit the Roxio site for an engine update. While installing AVG on my wife's W2K SP2, Media Player 9 machine today I encountered the same error. Hers is a new OS installation within the past two years, is very lean, and has never had a Roxio product installed on it.

    Sorry. I should have mentioned that before. I'm running Windows 2000. Thanks for your help.

    Media Player 9 Engine Update?

    Well, actually, it does. The quote below is from the Microsoft website: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsme...er/faq.aspx#7_1 7.3 What if my computer is running on an earlier operating system and I have problems burning CDs with the Player? If Windows Media Player is running on Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows Millennium Edition, or Windows 2000, the Roxio CD Burning plug-in is used to burn CDs. If you are having problems burning CDs, make sure that your CD drive is supported by checking the Roxio Web site. In addition, the Roxio CD Burning plug-in might quit unexpectedly when you are burning protected files to a CD and you exceed the copy limit specified in the license for one or more of the files. You can prevent this problem by downloading the updated CD Creator engine for Windows Media Player from the Roxio Web site. But that still doesn't solve my problem. How can I get the engine update? I believe the applet is from Roxio CD-DVD creator 6.x.
  8. I am trying to install AVG Antivirus v. 7.1 but am unable because of a warning of a conflict with an older version of Roxio CD and DVD Creator. AVG recommends visiting the Roxio site for an engine update. I do not have a stand-alone version of Roxio installed on my machine, only the applet that was installed with Windows Media Player 9. I cannot find an engine update on the Roxio site that does not require registration and that's not possible since I have nothing to register. Microsoft's Knowledge Base is of no help; it has a link to Roxio's update page, but the link takes me to a purchase page for a new version of Roxio. Can anyone help? My need is sort of urgent since I uninstalled my previous antivirus and now have no protection. Thanks for your help.
