Creator 2012 Custom Install

Question

I would like to custom install Roxio Creator 2012 (non-pro version). Looks like Roxio by default installs all the applications and I was not able to choose only the applications that I would use. I do not want label creator or Triple Scoop Music among others. I have the installation CD. Really appreciate your help on this.

There is no reasonable easy way to do a custom install. The two items that you mention are very small and would NOT eat up much of your system disc. Why do you want the custom install? If you are that short of space on your hard drive, then you would have a problem running the programs at all.

It is not about space. I prefer or always install only the applications I normally use. I don't install everything just because it is provided. If I am not using any application, it is just junk sitting on my computer eating up resources (either memory or space) without any cause or purpose. The 2 programs I mentioned were just for example; I have other also which I don't use or don't need since I have other applications to cover-up for those. Video copy & convert, video wave, FaceFilter, DivX Player, Back OnTrack - I don't need them or don't use them . I hope you get my point.

 

Also, all major programs provide custom install option. As I remember, Roxio too provide custom install option in the past version (atleast in creator 9). Why was this removed now?

Integration and the need to keep the complex group of applications in a smaller package.

 

If you don't want half or more of the applications, why didn't you select a more specialized program from Roxio(link)? What do you need the program for?

 

Custom install was dropped years ago.

I don't deny that integration is crucial part of grouping multiple applications. Irrespective of why I need the program, I believe giving custom install options have been a standard practice in the industry. I do understand that there will be common files or programs across applications; but why would you force someone to install 3D Photo Creator with Label Creator in Roxio (for example); when they all need is Label Creator. Please understand I am not here to argue on how the software standard should be; I am just saying that providing custom install should also be key part when multiple applications are grouped; otherwise the product itself becomes a BLOATWARE. Its like you go to buffet and the waitress is forcing each and every item on the menu down your throat, instead of allowing you to choose your own favorite dishes.

 

I will not deny that I have used and very much liked Roxio Creator before; but in this case of not providing custom install options just threw me off.

Register your complaint directly with Roxio. We have no control over what they do.

i agree with you. most vendors have custom install for software. creator 2012 is very buggy and i am very displeased with it. have had the program for 2 weeks and not able to use it properly yet. the so called digital gurus on this site do not give any help either. all that ask is computer specs as if you don't know how to read the software requirements on the box.

the product should do as advertised.

Help is available - but to get help we need to KNOW exactly what you are doing and what your specs actually ARE.

 

Unfortunately we can't look over your shoulder so we have to rely on asking questions. If you choose not to answer them, then there's very little we can do.

 

You claim there is a 'bug' you are denmanding that Roxio fix an installation problem (which very few people actually have) when the fault is almost certain to be on your machine. None of us know what that would be unless you actually TELL us
