Does Intel Duo Cpu Qualify Me To Run 2011 Pro?

Question

I have enjoyed using Easy Media Creator 10 for years and it works perfectly.

 

I am hesitant to purchasing Creator 2011 Pro fearing if I have a problem installing the program or it does not work correctly I will not be able to return to my earlier program. Plus what do I do with $100 Pro if I cannot make it work? I hope smarter people than me will give me gage advise. I want 2011 but I don't want to break someting that's not broken even if it does not have many features I would like. Hugs! :D

I read the system requirements for 2011 Pro but I am not sure I understand the requirements. I am running XP Home Edition, V2002, SP3, with Intel®Core2 Duo CPU, E7200@2.53GHz, 253GHz 3.25 GB of RAM. Will because I am runnig with Intel Duo mean I have the required resources to run Creator 2011 Pro? If not I will not purchase the newest version. A new motherboard is, I guess, the only way to make it work. Anxious to hear from those who know!!! <_<

Your CPU and RAM looks fine - the only thing I can spot that may cause any problem would be the graphics

 

3.25 GB sounds as if you have 4 GB with an onboard graphics chipset - if it isn't a laptop, I'd recommend a dedicated graphics card instead if you want to do any serious video working

There is not any conflict with 2011 and EMC 10 but I would still recommend that you uninstall EMC 10 first.

 

Your old Projects from EMC 10 will not be usable in 2011 but if you decided later that you can't live without some EMC 10 feature, you can always install it then.

 

I would uninstall then follow the Clean Install procedures, loosely – XP

(by loosely, I would skip the Registry parts)

 

Defrag the HDD.

 

Follow the Prep Steps – KB Page

 

And install 2011.

 

It is a little more work this way but should in a Smile :D

I am asking for a clarification, perhaps a consensus.

Jim, you wrote that you do not see any conflict with 2011 and EMC 10. Do you mean you see no problem with the current system I am running? To recap, "I am running XP Home Edition, V2002, SP3, with Intel®Core™2 Duo CPU, E7200@2.53GHz, 253GHz 3.25 GB of RAM. Will because I am running an Intel Duo mean I have the required resources to run Creator 2011 Pro?" I am asking because another gentleman, Digital Guru, recommended I install a "dedicated graphics card." I value both of your opinions but I know little about which graphics card to purchase and how to install one. I very much want to resolve this question because I want to take advantage of the newer features 2011 Pro offers. I must say I am nervous about installing an update when I read about all the problems many people are having with 2011. Of course, I am only reading about those having problems and not about the, hopefully, thousands of people with no problems. But that is why we have this forum to help us less knowledgable people. I look forward to a consensus. Thank you.

Correct! There is no conflict with having both installed.

 

Likewise there is no advantage unless you think filling you HDD with programs you don't use is cool :lol:

 

Sorry but I must have not explained myself. I do not want to run both versions. I want to know if my computer is up to snuff because I have an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU that appears to be too small. I thought Duo would make up the difference.

Intel Core 2 Duo is your CPU and has nothing to do with graphics. What Daithi was referring to was the fact that you only have 3.25GB of RAM. Most likely you have 4GB installed which means the graphics chip on your motherboard is using the rest. Your CPU is fine for Creator 2011. However, your video card OR chipset on the motherboard needs to fully support DirectX 9.

 

So if you can answer with what video card or chipset you have, we can give you a better answer.

Thank you for you continuing help. I have an ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO. If you need more information please let me know. I want to purchase 2011 Pro but only if my computer can handle it. I love my old version but I think there will be other things I can use with the newest version to improve my home video editing for DVDs. If my computer comes up short will I be able to use 2011 but not the Pro? My sincere thanks! :rolleyes:
