Is EMC 7.5 compatible with Windows 7?

Question

:angry2: I LOVE EMC 7.5 VideoWave + DVD Builder capabilities. I cannot upgrade to Windows 7 ++, because EMC 7.5 software will not work. (Too old for Roxio assistance!) Were I to purchase a new computer with Windows 7, can I use my EMC 7.5? If not, what software does Roxio have to function with the same capabilities, to produce DVDs as I did in VideoWave and DVD Builder version 7.5? HELP! I am only interested in complete control as in VideoWave + DVD Builder. Thanks!

EMC 7.5 will NOT work with Win7.

You could always consider setting dual boot system running EMC7.5 :)

That sounds complicated! Would it work, really? I was hoping there would be another program with similar editing capabilities (like VideoWave), and burning (DVD Builder).

There is. It's Creator 2010 which ogdens put a link to in his post. It's the current product compatible with Windows 7

Roxio Creator 2010 is compatible with W7. It is the latest version and about 5 versions further along then EMC 7/7.5. It has both Videowave and DVD Builder (now called myDVD)

If you are in need of a new computer then go with the new Roxio. If you plan on capturing VHS data then consider Creator 2010 SE which is sold at Costco. You get the adapter with the SE version.

Thanks so much. This is great information.

Thank you as well. I like all the options in Videowave version 7.5 and was hoping I wouldn't have to switch to another "movie-maker" software.

I too was dealing with with this issue. Depending on your version of w7, you can set up a virtual XP machine- sort of like a dual boot sytem, but you can access all your w7 functionality and run the emc 7.5 in the virtual xp machine. It's the final work around i had to do with my issues a bit ago. I'm stuck using 7.5 for work, this was the only viable option for me

That may work for a short time but it will fail sooner or later - probably at the worst possible time. Others have tried and got it to work but then disaster !
