Creator 2010 Plus On Windows 7

Question

Bought Creator 10 Plus for a computer running Windows 7 Pro. Couldn't get Create DVD to open and show MYDVD menu. It told me screen resolution had to be at least 1024 by 768 and 32 bit color. I'm running something like 1920 x 1200. Tried using the original disc to repair Creator 10 and applied the SP 2. No help.

 

So, I clicked properties and after trying several compatibility modes I finally found that under Settings if I check the box for Disable display scaling on high DPI settings it works ok.

Before continuing let's make sure what program we are talking about.

 

First of all, there is no such program as Creator 10 Plus. There is an old program called Roxio Creator 10 (which is compatible with W7) and there is an even older program called Roxio Easy Media Creator 10 which may or may not be compatible with W7.

 

So which program do your have. To get the correct program look on the About page.

Your program is Creator 2010 Plus.

 


So, I clicked properties and after trying several compatibility modes I finally found that under Settings if I check the box for Disable display scaling on high DPI settings it works ok.

 

That's pretty standard in nearly all of the Roxio Creator suites, it's in the design. The error message needs updating.

 

Many of the menus are bit-mapped, and won't appear the correct size on your page if your display is scaled to something other than the standard "100%" or (96 dpi in XP). The coding detects the non-standard DPI setting but still gives the very old error message about screen display dimensions. It really needs rewriting, but the code is that old I suspect none of the original programmers are still around.
