Roxio Creator 2009 Compatiibility

Question

Ten years ago, my wife purchased Roxio Creator 2009 Special Edition to transfer VHS to DVD and I have Windows 10 installed on my computer.  Ironically, when I registered the key nothing popped up to say that it had been installed previously, so I assume this was the first time. 

I installed the disc tonight, but it will not open.  I assume there in a compatibility issue with Windows 10.  I would prefer not to have to purchase another program to accomplish this.  Are there any plug-in adaptors or things I can download that will assist me in being able to use this program?  Thanks.

Hello Jim,

Creator 2009 was released in 2008, and was designed to run under (gasp) Vista or XP.   Your wife may have registered it previously - registration in those days was mainly a way of preserving your CD key against loss.  Nowadays under the new owners, registration is a precondition to using their software.

I don't know of anybody who is successfully running Creator 2009 under Windows 10.    I don't think it will run under Windows 10.    Depending on what you want to do, if you can't find free software to do the job you might look here at the Roxio store to see what you need.   The latest offering is Creator NXT 7, or if your needs are simpler there is Easy CD & DVD Creator 2, which is a cut-down version of NXT 7 at a third of the capabilities and a price to match that.

Best regards, Brendon

Brendon:

 

I was afraid that it was too old to use and it looks like it never was used.  Bummer.  Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

You're welcome Jim.   I'm just sorry I didn't have a work-around for you.
