EMC 9.1 Videowave crashes


Jimjim

Question

After a clean install on a new PC with Vista Ultimate, I have problems with all video applications.

1. Videowave: does not start, message: unable to set up video objects

2. Mydvd: unable to set up video objects

3. Digital Media experience: screen flicker

When using Cinemagic I can load a file and play the file (thumbnail)

On the main startup screen, the system does not access the web and when using click to retry, EMC hangs.

 

The video drivers for my NVidea card have been updated when installing Vista to 7.15.11.102 dated 22/03/07.

 

Any suggestion on where the problem may be?

Thanks for the info. I found new drivers on the NVidia web site Forceware 158.24 June 2007 and installed them. This corrected the flicker for Media experience.

Still have the same problem with Videowave: error, unable to create video objects, and then shuts down and comes back to the main menu screen.

Any further idea's?

A few guesses...

Do you have vista 64 bit?

Did you try a reinstall -- maybe original install never completed?

Could it be conflicts with existing (possibly Hauppage related) software? What happens if you rename the folders of Hauppage software after making sure software & services in folder are not running?

No, I'm using Vista 32 bit.

I did already several installs, each time using the clean install process as described.

I do not have the Hauppage software installed, only the driver. I'm using Vista Media center to use the TV tuner. I also disabled the driver followed by a clean install without any result.

When you say you updated the graphics "when installing Vista" - did you get the drivers from nVidia or did you use the generic Vista drivers ?

 

The reason I ask is that the nVidia website lists drivers dated June (not March)

I'm running out of idea's.

I installed even the beta version of the NVidia driver 158.45.

Re-did a clean install of EMC9.1 but still the same error message when starting VideoWave or MyDVD: Unable to create video objects.

Somebody has an idea in which direction to search or try?

Thanks,

I'm running with Vista 64x and experienced problems similar to what you describe although I primarily use Creator Classic.

I may have found a work-around to the problem, although it may only apply to the 64 bit version of Vista, --

Go to the Roxio folder and select the Creator Classic 9 folder - right click on Creator9.exe file and select the Compatibility tab, then select "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" making sure "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)" is selected.

I've used this on a number of programs that misbehaved and it appears to do the trick.

Good Luck

Cheers,

Michael
