My Own Post - Install Problem


praiseitem

Question

Hello

 

I'm wondering if I have to follow the instruction I read in this forum about preparing my computer to download Roxio easy VHS to DVD software when I followed the instruction to the letter found in the book. I have a older PC with upgraded 2.0 USB and OS Windows XP. Computer works fine, download took about 1/2 hour and said was successful, restarted when asked to do so. I have the icon on my desktop and when I double click on it, a little red ROXIO banner comes alive on my screen for about 5 seconds then goes away and nothing else happens. Multiple attempts.

 

I then registered my software, looked for updates and installed that and still the same issue. If you tell me that I must do all that preparation stuff that cdanteek suggests, which I really do not want to do, does it mean I have to uninstall ROXIO 1st seeing that I already installed it and apparently successfully?

 

Please help, I'm a long distance trucker and I do NOT get much time in front of my computer so I would like to have this working before I leave tomorrow.

 

Be well

If the install doesn't go right, there is no getting around it…

 

I have been playing with these silly things since 1980 and I am still looking for the Click&Fix button… :lol:

 

Thanks Jim I appreciate your reply. I just save all my passwords and let my computer autofill when I go to the sites I visit. When I Delete cashe and cookies, all that is removed isn't it?

I don’t see any connection???

 

Point is Clean Install is what you need to do to get this puppy installed. Just no way around that…

 

The reward is, it is a great little piece of software once you are up and running!

Point is, if I have to do everything listed in that other guys post about getting the clean install I lose a ton of information. But where I'm confused is he mention doing all the prep work if your using Windows Vista, I'm running XP. Here is some of the facts about my computer, which you may notice lists Roxio Video Capture:

Your computer does not meet the requirements for this software :unsure:

Ouch! Your PC does not even meet the minimum requirement for the program…

 

You have an 800 MHz PC and it requires a minimum of 1GHz… Specs

 

Now this will not cause any problem as far as install or run, but capture would be very, very iffy…

 

As far as the instructions, if you follow them you won’t lose anything! But you must do what they say, not what you think they mean.

Thanks Jim & myguggi, I've been thinking about a brand new computer. If I install Roxio 1st thing after I get the computer setup, should it work without having to do all that other stuff? Assuming that a new computer would have the latest everything that Roxio needs to run correctly.

 

Thanks again for all your input.

You deserve to get a new computer. Your computer was a pretty nice computer, almost 10 years ago, but fortunately (in most cases), technology changes.

Yes it should.

 

Thinking of laptop so you can become a road warrior??? Then you will only hit Truck Stop that have WiFi :lol:

 

Actually Jim I do have a laptop and I tried to install Roxio their as well but it failed because of lack of memory. It has a small hard drive and its almost full.

 

I want to get a new home PC because as much as this one has been good to us, it's time to retire the old girl.

 

Thanks again and I'll let you know if all goes well once I get the new one. Hopefully around Christmas. Would you recommend and Apple or just a New PC with Windows 7? I'm lookin g for a Desktop for the house.

 

Be Well.

 

I'll be gone tomorrow so my replies from now on will be slow.

Thanks Grandpabruce, yes it's time to retire the old girl ,we've been through Windows ME (AWFUL) then XP which has been great at least for what we use the computer for. But she's really showing her age.

 

Just a matter of money now. Christmas and 4 birthdays in Dec. Cash is tight.

 

Take care and BE Well.

I am not too keen on Apple as a migration from PC's.

 

They do crash, they have trouble with programs and the vast majority of your current software will never even install on a MAC…

 

Then there is price!

 

V2D (PC) $59.95

V2D (MAC) $79.95

 

Some software pricing is the same for both but often you pay more for MAC stuff…

 

I will not bash them, but these days they are just a PC with a different OS installed.
