Success Installing 2009

Question

New to the forum, but thought I'd share with everybody how I finally got Roxio Creator 2009 to install my new Dell Studio 1735, Vista Ultimate 32-bit. I too, was having a problem when the install got to the EMC 11 Content part of the install.

 

I copied the entire install DVD to the root of my C:\ drive to a folder named Roxio Creator 2009, same as the DVD. So the path was C:\Roxio Creator 2009. I then removed the DVD from my computer and ran the setup.exe from my C:\Roxio Creator 2009 folder. Everything installed fine as it should. Only took 5 hours today to get this installed, thanks alot Roxio!

 

As for all the talk about the .NET framework here, I did nothing, zero with my .NET Framework. My Vista Ultimate had .NET Framework 3.0 installed before I installed Roxio Creator 2009. After installing I still only have versions

2.0.50727.1434

3.0.4506.648

as per my "Turn Windows Features On and Off" as well as VersionCheck that I downloaded from http://www.tmgdevelopment.co.uk/versioncheck.zip.

 

Hope this helps out there. I'm upgrading from Roxio EZ Creator 5 (oldie) to this new Roxio Creator 2009. Version 5 always worked really well for me so I really wanted to go with Roxio again. Sure hope the software runs better than the install did.

Glad you got it working - but if it took 5 hours to copy files to the root of C: drive and then run setup, there's something amiss

 

I have the download version which extracted (using winrar) and running setup from there - that took me about 30 minutes altogether

It didn't take 5 hours to copy the files to the root of my "C" drive, that took about 8 minutes. It took me about 5 hours to finally get the software installed because of the same installation problems so many of others are running into. After 4.5 hours I thought of this work-around and was successful.

BTW, looks like gi7omy has a "Reading Comprehension" issue as well.

Interesting.... The C2009 includes .NET 3.5 but according to that app, I don't have it installed either.

 

However when I run the MS .Net 3.5 installer ffrom Microsoft.com, it says that 3.5 IS installed. Perhaps that application hasn't been updated for .Net 3.5???
