Is Anyone Using Creator 2010 On Windows 7 64-Bit?

Question

So I have to ask the question in the subject line. I have used Creator 2010 on XP on ancient hardware

without major problems (just way too bloody slow), and I tried it tonight on 32-bit Windows 7 Home

Premium on a Core 2 Duo - again, works but slow. On the only good machine in the house, a Core i5,

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and MyDVD is a train wreck of hangs and crashes. There's

another thread where I try to collect as much information as a good software test engineer if you

want more detail.

 

If anyone has tried them, do later Creator releases get any more stable? I am pretty unimpressed

with this stuff I have, and am worried about throwing good money after bad.

 

Finally, can anyone suggest GOOD software capable of turning recordings from a Tivo Premiere (MPEG 2

with wrapping paper) into working DVD, AVCHD or BluRay media?

 

Thanks,

Rob T

I'm not; but there should be no problems. I used it in the past. The program is W7 compliant. As for 64 bit vs 32 bit, the program is 32 bit and runs as such on a W7 64 bit machine.

The latest release, Creator 2012 was developed with ease of installation in mind. There are still issues with it.

 

Re: 64 bit vs 32 bit video editing software. I know of only one other prosumer program that is true 64 bit operation. Unless you have a top of the line video card (not chip) the program hanges, crashes and is just plain slower than the latest version Creator 2012. I would image that Creator 2009 would be about the same as 2012.

 

Many people have issues when they run an overagressive registry cleaner even those in their anti-virus program. Never run a registry cleaner.

Other than I5, you didn't give us any information concering the computer you are having issues with. I have never used TiVO ( withor without warapping paper tongue.gif In fact, I don't know what it is.

 

My suggestions since you are playing aorund with it is tofollow these instructions to get that i5 up to date. (Yes, it probably does need updating) Then I would remove Creator 2010 using these instructions, defrag your hard drive and get rid of junk files, keep that anit-virus off and then reinstall.

 

Note that the easiest way to remove software is via Revo Uninstaller (free) . Use it in the moderate mode only. Let it remove the folders and leftove registry items. There are a lot of them.

 

Please close out this or the other thread because people (us) will get confused about what is bien addressed and when.

I ran C2010 Pro on a C2D E8500, W-7 x64 Pro OS and didn't encounter any issues.

First off, thanks for helpful reply!

 

I'm not; but there should be no problems. I used it in the past. The program is W7 compliant. As for 64 bit vs 32 bit, the program is 32 bit and runs as such on a W7 64 bit machine. Re: 64 bit vs 32 bit video editing software. I know of only one other prosumer program that is true 64 bit operation.

 

Agreed, I'd be surprised if the app were 32-bit. I need the OS to be the 64-bit variety to address the memory (8Gb now, plan to expand). I know video is mostly an I/O play.

 

Unless you have a top of the line video card (not chip) the program hanges, crashes and is just plain slower than the latest version Creator 2012. I would image that Creator 2009 would be about the same as 2012.

 

I am using the on-board graphics on all of my machines. The 32-bit XP and 32-bit Win7 machines run well, just slowly. Sounds like a positive nod to try 2012.

No problem, the only thing I have done is run regedit as suggested in these steps:

Other than I5, you didn't give us any information concering the computer you are having issues with.

 

Refurbished Gateway DX4860 with an Intel Core i5-2300 CPU, 8Gb RAM and 1Tb hard drive, running Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium. I'm using the on-board Intel HD Graphics with a Win7 driver from October 2011. I don't game, so I haven't bought a graphics card in a very long time. I don't have media with the refurb (dang it), so a clean Win7 install is out unless I buy another license.

 

I have never used TiVO ( withor without warapping paper tongue.gif In fact, I don't know what it is.

 

It's a standalone, networked PVR in my home theater room, and I can offload programs to a PC with TivoToGo software and treat it like an external drive. Under ideal conditions, I can turn the shows into DVDs, AVCHD-on-DVD media for a Blu-Ray, or a Blu-Ray. Roxio is one of the software packages that handles the TivoToGo files, not that that's terribly hard; VideoReDo appears to do this without the AVCHD or Blu-Ray options.

 

My suggestions since you are playing aorund with it is tofollow these instructions to get that i5 up to date.

Thanks for the tips. I have done some updating but not all, and I have not used the Revo Uninstaller. I will give all of that another try and report.

 

Thanks,

Rob T
