We need more information than what you have given. What do you mean you can't install it? Did you disable your antivirus software, before installing?

 

List you system specs. The Roxio minimum requirements are absolutely meaningless.

Yes I disabled antivirus! I stated that in my original message. However never mind as again I repeat, that I did all the steps according to the discussion groups. Updated everything I could for a good clean install according to Roxio. Took anything out with control paned ect ect. The only thing I did not do was edit the registry. I had done what you people said to do there but this time I didn't. Just a hunch I don't know, but this time for the first time I had a successful installation. However users with OS Windows XP anyway, I would suggest a scandisc before doing the install. I didn't do it and near the end of installation, the system crashed. So after doing a scandisc, was able to finish installation. Just something to ponder.

After many attempts I finally loaded Creator 2010 Pro on Windows XP Pro. The only thing I did different from the instructions posted here was I didn't touch the registry at all. You folks are always saying go into regedit and delete registry values and that's what I didn't do this time. It loaded up from the DVD perfectly even considering the computer crashed once. After rebooting it picked up from where it left off and finished up perfectly. It's something to consider folks. Do everything mentioned except for regedit and see what happens. Oh yes another thing, do a scan disc before installation. I didn't and boy did I ever have a bunch of bad values that had to be fixed. I also have Cineplayer for Windows Media Player after registering it. Some photos I burned from a file on the hard drive to a DVD, played back as a slideshow perfectly! I don't know if the DVD will play on my TV or not. However I will settle for watching them on my computer allllllllll day long. I'm so happy. I've been through a ton of frustration as a lot of people here are. Try the not doing regedit trick and see what happens. Nothing to lose.

That's abosolutely great Dick that you have your C2010 pro working :):) And thank you for posting what you did to make it work. That just might help someone else, and that's always a good thing. Don't be a stranger to the forum now that you have your program working. I suggest that you will more than likely find many more interesting things about the various programs in the suite that you will be working with.

 

Have fun !! :D

Actually it is very poor advice…

 

The Clean Install is a proven solution and has been since EMC 6…

It's a proven solution that hundreds of users are having problems with. Any time a user has found a solution to his/her problem regardless of how they managed it, it's worth letting others know about. That's is not to say that the "Clean Install" doesn't work for others. But the more information one can find about a problem that someone has solved---LET'S HERE IT !!!

The clean install is like giving a user a drill gun and telling him to do brain surgery.

 

It's fine for the surgeons amongst us [we bury our mistakes] but there has to be a simpler method developed for Joe Average.

OK here is a question for you. I have done the clean install instructions to the letter with NO results time and time again. I do one thing different from your prescribed instructions and that is poor advice? Maybe it is to you sir, but to me I come from the school of whatever it takes to make it work. I'm an ex mechanic so I know what I'm talking about.

Dick ;)

As an ex-programmer, I can confidently tell you, I do not agree… :(
