Roxio 10 And Roxio 2009

Question

HELP!

First time I installed Roxio 2009 on my vista x64 laptop, I removed all of Roxio 10 for a clean install and now have endless configuration loops on startup of Roxio 2009...that if I let them go thru, corrupt the exe file.

Got an idea to try to install Roxio 2009 on my vista x64 desktop leaving Roxio 10 in place...the 2009 installed flawlessly and works perfectly.

Now I wonder if that was part of the problem...Roxio 2009 needing some of the Roxio 10 files to function.

Now I wonder if I can safely remove/uninstall the Roxio 10 programs which are listed as:

Roxio Backup My PC

Roxio Central Audio

Roxio Central Copy

Roxio Central Core

Roxio Central Data

Roxio Central Tools

Roxio CinePlayer Decoder Pack

Roxio Disc Gallery

Moxio Media Share

Roio Update Manager

 

Roxio Creator 2009 only has one installed program listing.

Anyone know what is safe to do...I don't really need the Roxio 10 now and it does take up space on my machine.

Thanks!

Hi

 

No, Roxio 2009 doesn't need any Creator 10 files to function correctly. 2009 has to be self reliant since not all 2009 customers are going to be upgrading from Roxio 10 now are they, so 2009 does not need any Roxio 10 files to function. There has to be another reason for the issue you had.

Now that 2009 has installed and is working fine on your machine, you should be able to uninstall Creator 10 from it without affecting your 2009 installation.

 

If for some reason there is a problem after you uninstall Roxio 10, follow the Uninstall Instructions HERE carefully (stop at the Install 10 instructions of course, step #5) and then try reinstalling 2009 again.

So it should be ok to uninstall all the above files that are dated back to my Roxio 10 install?...seems like Roxio 10 added a lot of programs!

Thanks!

This is the clean install procedure for C '09.

Hi Rachel

 

Yes, it should be fine to uninstall all Roxio 10 products. Use the proper technique of course, control panel - Programs & Features - Uninstall Roxio 10 components. Start with the Core components and you'll find that some others will be uninstalled along with those as well, or when you check them and uninstall them, they'll uninstall almost immediately.

Roxio 10 added all seperate components into the Uninstall list as you have seen, while 2009 only adds the single "Roxio 2009" entry.

 

P.S. - @ Syrallas - Already linked her to that page above - ;)

Twain is a standard system for talking to scanners and digital cameras (http://twain.org/). Twunk_16.exe and Twunk_32.exe are usually legitimate Twain files.

 

I'm not sure about 'twunk' but the syory went rouind at one time that 'twain' was 'Technology Without An Interesting Name :lol:

 

However, twunk.exe can also be a Trojan (Blackmal C.) which uses that name to cover itself - do a scan of your system

Twunk_16.exe and twunk_32.exe are Microsoft files, and you'll usually find both of them in both C:\Windows and the dllcache. They're described internally as "client's thunking server"

 

Definition of "thunking" is here.

As a educated programmer at HND to BSc level, I do not trust Vista as yet because of the stability. You need SP2 of vista or later to make it stable. Futhermore version 11 has problems with Roxio 9. Version 9 came with the computer. A Contract with Sony. So I installed on top of 9, but some files are missing files stating cannot find file (security certificate) and denied permission to launch the program in Roxio 11. :angry:

 

I may have to revert back to XP MCE 2005 from scratch with SP3 :)

 

More Tests later on <_<

I've seen you posting and advising on other threads. Just curious if you already resolved your issue as well the result of your tests, as you indicated above.
