Activating Old Dvd Projects

Question

I want to burn some projects for my records and remove some files that are hanging around from them. BUt DVDit SE 2.5.4 crashes when i load those old projects, and it doesn't sesem to properly unistall either.

 

Any suggestions on doing this? I could upgrade to another version (if these projects will work on newer versions), (I know this a DVDit Pro stream but so far i only have this old version) or attempt to get this one running.

I can't seem to reinstall DVDit 2.5, because I can't uninstall it. THe uninstall utility runs from add/remove programmes, but DVDit remains there (crashing) and the programme won't reinstall with it there.

 

What brings on the crash is switching from "menus" to "movies" or attempting to play the DVD with the virtual remote control.

 

As for reinstalling, it appears to be impossible. Even following the directions here; http://kb.roxio.com/content/kb/DVDit/000006DI?set-locale=en about deleting registry entries to sucsessfully uninstall DVDit doesn't work. with every instance of DVD and Sonic folders removed from the registry and Programm files, DVDit continues to show up in add and remove programmes, and attempting to install it from the original CD invokes the uninstall process, which actually adds the (immediately previously removed) registry entries for DVDit to the "local_machine" registry area. Rebooting after every step makes no difference.

 

Can't use it, can't uninstall it, can't reinstall it. Kind of a problem.

What I have found is that the program references the exact file locations. If it does not see this it will crash and you need to start a new menu and refer the layout to the new file locations. It's a real pain, so when you make a disc keep a disc master copy.
