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.

i checked all of my software and hardware,by running dell support disk,it found no problems,no missing updates.computer shows no problems.

i have 70% open space on harddrive,so available memory or available space not issue.i even uninstalled and reinstalled roxio media 9 suite,three times in last month,making sure to do disc clean-up and restarting computer each time.since they always say it is a activation problem pertaining to account,issue new account numbers and then activate roxio online and roxio photoshow 6. <_<

At this point I am just taking a wait and see attitude and hope that something will be coming out soon. :unsure::rolleyes: Until then I will use 5 or if I use 6 I will go online and choose to have them download an Mpg4 file to my e-mail address.  <_<

Cool, one doesn't have to be a gamer to need all that power, you need it for video editing too. Never hurts to go for the best out there, otherwise you will be wanting something bigger and better before you turn around. Let me know how you like it.

it comes with adobe 7 premeir and photo editing,i'll see how that works,i also ordered new monitor with both vga and dvi ports on rear of monitor,so no matter what system i use i'll have monitor,i'll let you know how it goes.i will also redownload photoshow 6 desktop version,since they blamed windows,everything on this system is brand new,so no more excuses from roxio.i'm having vista ulitimate installed on this one,i'll try it out.instead of putting this desktop away(only three years old)i'll give to my sister,hers is xp-512 mb.mine vista home premium 2gb.

i guess i will stick with photoshow 5,i had bought all of the add-ons just before roxio bought from simplestar,so i do not think i'm losing anything by using photoshow 5 instead of photoshow 6,i just hope they fix export problem :mellow:

after using this alienware desktop,i realize that i wasted $3000.00,unless you are a gamer,you should stick with a lower priced system.

you can order a dell,add all the features you want and need for half of the price.my system works good,but i could have stuck with my other desktop and just have increased memory from 2gb to 4gb and installed larger video card.

i ordered my desktop with liquid cooled system,but can not seem to find this unit.

Now that you have a great system, you will probably want to do more. Have you looked at Creator 2009? Slide shows, video editing, audio exiting and transfer, etc. The Ultimate has a back up program and much more.

i use roxio media 9 suite and adobe elements 7/photoshop 7,i find roxio easier to use,adobe seems hard to use and in order to do certain things,you need to upgrade.

does roxio 2009 offer better software and is it easy to use?

I think that Creator 2009 is better than EMC 9. The Home page is different with the names you know all hidden with cutsey names.E,g, Video Wave = Edit Video Advanced. Creator 2009 handles HD better and you cn make Blu-ray discs or AVCHD discs to play on a Blu-ray player (if you have one.) More transitions, more MyDVD (Create DVD-Advanced) menus, etc.

 

If you are not going to do HD, then there is no real good reason to upgrade unless somehting else grabs you.

All, we believe we fixed this problem as of a few days ago. It turned out to be much more complicated than we first thought.

 

Please try to activate burning on PhotoShow 6 and let us know on this forum if you are still having problems.

Are you talking about v6 desktop or online? I know they did for the online, but I hadn't heard that the v6 updated was out yet.

 

I will have to check out crazytalk 6 pro.

roxio had me do a third uninstall/reinstall,this did not resolve issue.

i removed all photoshows and then did disk clean-up and then ran different security scans.problem unknown,you can e-mail your photoshows,but can not export to computer.

never gets past processing audio.

 

Thanks for the info........... :rolleyes:

after seven uninstalls/reinstalls and doing all of the things support said to do,i uninstalled photoshow 6,i'll stick with my photoshow 5,since it always worked well for me.never had problems exporting to computer or to roxio online account.i had bought all of the effects when i ordered the photoshow 5 disk,so i'm not losing any of the features of photoshow 6.after they resolve export problem,i will redownload photoshow 6? :angry::angry2:
