I am having the same problem and someone from Roxio is looking into it, hopefully we will find out soon what the problem is. In the meantime, you can choose to have them encode a video for you and then they will send you an e-mail when it is done. You have to go to the online account and sign in, choose a slideshow, you will see that option on the right.

I just received a message saying they are aware of it and are looking into fixing the problem. You will have to contact customer service about the re-embursment since this is a user forum. If I hear anything else I will let you know.

I just heard a rumor that the fix maybe be coming out at the end of the month or so. I will let you know if I hear anything more. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

roxio sent e-mail to uninstall and then reinstall photoshow 6 desktop version,still receiving same results.

they did credit my account for the few months of lost services.

What I can't figure out is that the help desk asks us to do all these things, yet the tech dept knows it is a problem with the program and are working on fixing it. If I didn't know better, I would think the left had didn't know what the right hand was doing. :lol::lol:  Hopefully it will be fixed by the end of the month..............we'll see.

yesterday roxio tech support,had me set up account as new user on my computer to resolve issue,when i tried this,still received same results.

i keep sending screenshots of problem over and over,yet they keep having me,do the same things over and over to correct problem.

quess what still not working.

i installed the photoshow 5 disc,i bought from simplestar,before roxio bought them,only problem is they offer no updates for this software from roxio,you have to buy premium account to get photoshow 6 desktop,which does not work right at this time.

OH! WELL :blink:

Don't confuse Tech support and the Tech Dept. I think there is still hope because the tech dept does know about the problem and hopefully will resolve the problem soon. :rolleyes:

 

Do you  have a premium account? If you do, there is a place on your online page to download V5. I have both on my computer and I have no problem with Roxio's v5 just v6. I do have a premium account.

 

How did you add a screenshot. I tried to copy paste it on my reply to the service dept page but it wouldn't paste. :unsure:

hit print screen 0n keyboard,then open paint,hit edit,then hit paste.

then hit file,then save as jpeg. just give it name,so you can find it in your photos.

yes i have premium account,i'll look on roxio online for photoshow 5,does it offer more than my photoshow 5 disc or is it the same software,also i received photoshow 5 update today,did you receive it.since roxio can not figure problem out i'll stick with my photoshow 5 disc.

have you ever tried crazytalk 5 pro combined with photoshow,you can do cool things with your photos?

paint is part of windows,if you do not see it,hit start,then type in paint and it will come up for you to move to desktop.just put in help ticket as attachment,if can not attach,open new help ticket,attach screenshot and put old help ticket ref. number.

I have another printscreen program and I have it saved as jpeg, it just wouldn't copy and paste into the body of my reply. I will try the new ticket as you suggest.

No, I have not tried crazytalk 5 pro, I will have to check it out, thanks.

That is funny because I am running XP Pro on the computer that I have V6 installed. No way would I uninstall my windows software when it works with everything else including v5. It should be compatable with windows.
