Installation Of Creator Nxt Over Other Roxio Products

Question

I currently have Roxio Easy VHS to DVD and Roxio Creator 2011 Special Edition. Do I need to remove both of these or if just one, which one before I install my new NXT. Do I remove from add/remove programs and that is all or is their any specific registry entry I should delete. When looking at my add/remove list I have Roxio Burn, Roxio CinePlayer, Roxio Creator 2011 Special Edition and Roxio Photo Shop. I am thinking that maybe the VHS to DVD is a part of the Creator 2011 Special Edition but not sure.

 

In the past I have had problems installing and relied on you in the forum to help me get fixed. This time I am trying to avoid any issues before I install.

Roxio's photo editing program is called Photo Suite and or PhotoShow. Photoshop is an Adobe product.

 

VHS to DVD is part of Special Edition; probably an unncessary duplication of the capture program in Creator 2011.

 

I installed NXT over Creator 2011 Pro and it installed with no problems. There is no need to muck around with the registry. Note that the installation of NXT will remove and then reinstall some Creator 2011 programs. At least one of those programs was not in Special Edition.

 

Note that is you install NXT, then Media Manager is no longer on the Home page; it goes under the File/Options on the Home Page (I'm not at that computer now).

 

The video layer that comes with NXT is only good for playing the discs you make.

 

I think that covers it but others may have some input before you start.

Sounds like you are saying I can delete VHS to DVD and just install the new NXT over the Creator 2011 Special Edition. Am I right?

 

Also, you say "The video layer that comes with NXT is only good for playing the discs you make" I don't understand that one. I do burn a lot of disc for my kids to take with them. If I burn on the NXT can they take elsewhere and play or are you referring to something I probably don't know anything about or will ever use.

 

Thanks for you help!

One question I forgot to ask is I also have Nero 11. I am considering deleting it and sticking to Roxio. Is their any issues by having both of them on the computer if I decide to keep Nero?

Did I say layer? I mean Player; their version of CinePlayer. CinePlayer will still be on your computer to use however.

 

Do need to remove anyhting before installing NXT.

 

There should be no problems with Nero and NXT. Any earlier issues were with the packet writing software. NXT doesn't have one.

 

Did you read this guide?

Digital Guru I followed you advice and installed over reator 2011 Special Edition and everything seemed to go fine. I just checked my control panel programs and features and note I now have installed the following: Roxio Creator NXT, Roxio Burn, Roxio CinePlayer and Roxio Photoshow. I had also sent an email to Roxio Tech Support and their response was I would hear from them withing 48 hours so I went ahead and installed using your advice. Tonight I got back the following response from them

 

"Thank you for contacting Corel Customer Support.

 

You just need to uninstall Creator 2011 and install your new Creator NXT since Easy VHS to DVD is a different program. If you'll be uninstalling your Creator 2011, files which belongs to the Creator 2011 will be uninstalled along with the program.

 

It will be your choice to get rid of everything before installing your Creator NXT. You can then install the other applications that you want after." I thought I remember when I installed NXT seeing it say uninstalling Creator 2011. From what I have told you about what left in the control panel add/remove program section does it appear to you I am ok. If not what should I do?

Thanks for taking time to clarify for me.

 

ALSO, I NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

In looking in my programs on my c drive I have 2 directories. 1 Roxio 2011 which contains Roxio Burn dated 6/30 2011 1367 KB and not mention of Suite number. Second directory is Roxio NXT and contains a file Roxio Burn dated 7/5/2012 for 1683 KB and it says Suite 14.0.36.0. Both builds have same version number of 0210-210B948 RXC. Should I delte the on in Roxio 2011. In checking most files end up down the line as empty.

Who are you going to believe? Someone who has actually done it or someone reading out of an obsolete manual for Creator 2012).? You already did it and there were no problems. Same as me.

 

Unless you have a SSD and are strapped for space, why delete them? Are they giving you a problem? I don't have access to the computer that I updated from Creator 2010 to NXT so I can't look.

FYI, I had originally asked the same question both places since I had just gotten my program and did not want to install until I was sure what to do since I had problems in the past. I went by what you said but just wanted you to know what they said.

 

Value and Appreciate you help

When I try to install Roxio NXT, it says to delete the previous version (2012) or Roxio NXT could do it, which is unfortunate; my experience with Roxio products is that you never know what you are going to get. In the past you could have multiple versions. Some versions were lacking and some features didn't work due to various unknown reasons. My issues seem to be primarily be with Videowave. I had trouble with Videowave and MyDVD in both 2010 and 2011 (as well as other versions); so far 2012 has been pretty reliable short of a few problems which were fixed using other products instead. So I really hate to uninstall Roxio 2012 but Roxio NXT has some Blu-ray functions I could use. I even get nervous about uninstalling it, unless the previous version had issues, so you had nothing to lose. I never understood why Roxio tended to be vulnerable with some products, particularly with Internet Explorer versions. Of course, some people on this forum never to have problems. This doesn't occur with Adobe Premiere or Encore but they are so expensive.

I would recommend that you keep C2012 and forget about NXT which in my opinion is inferior to C2012. Several features have been removed. Cineplayer has been replaced by WinDVD and you no longer have the ability to play commercial DVDs or BD only "homemade " ones. Creator Classic has also disappeared.

 

Previously I had 3 or 4 different version installed on my VISTA system and they all ran without any interference. People have the same problems with other programs such as Vegas, Adobe Premier, Nero or whatever, etc.

 

I don't know what problems you were having with IE but I never encountered one but then I just don't use IE unless I have to.

If Roxio NXT doesn't play commerical Blu-ray discs or DVD, then it would be pointless to upgrade to it. I couldn't imagine why they would do away with Creator classic. For some reason, I have had problems with VideoWave over the years on various computers on different versions of Roxio. Various versions of Internet explorer created problems with VideoWave. I had a lot of problems just recently with Videowave in creator 2011.Since creator 2012 works fairly well with some exceptions, I hate to upgrade. My son has been using Adobe Premiere and Encore. At first I didn't like Encore because it was difficult to understand; but once you get the hang of it, you realize that it is very flexible and you end up with a professional result that look like commercial DVD's. I like the way you can add several timelines on the opening menu.You can create one button that starts videos and another button that starts a slide show. It offers a lot of possibilities. You could create a nice wedding DVD. I don't believe you can do that with VideoWave that I can see in that way. Unfortunately, those programs are very expensive.

You can create professional looking DVDs with Roxio. I don't know what you mean by "several timelines on the opening menu" but with Roxio you you can have different buttons that will start videos or another button that starts a slideshow (which of course is also a video). Why wouldn't you be able to create wedding DVD with Roxio?

 

What problems are you having with C2012? What problems is IE causing you?

I'm not having any major problems with C2012? It works fine, with just a few minor issues. I just wanted to update to NXT for some blu-ray functions but was advised against it. I was talking about other versions.of Roxio where new versions of Internet explorer created problems but that's all water under the bridge now. I just meant that in Adobe Encore, the first menu that see when you insert a DVD, has buttons for certain functions. One button starts your main video, the other buttons opens submenus for chapters, and the other button opens a slide show. Or you can create different buttons for different events, etc. I never realized you can also do this in MyDVD in your initial menu that you see first when inserting a DVD. I'm not sure how you would go about this.

Don't you see this when you start My DVD?

 

Maybe you checked don't show this on start-up?

I understand how to open Roxio but I was just wondering if you can do multiple timelines/slideshows on a single DVD. I just did this project in Encore where the first button is a family video, the second button is scene selection from the same timeline but the third button is a separate Photo slide show. As an example, you could have a project where the 1st button would show Jason's video baseball games in 2012, the 2nd button a slideshow of Jason's photos of the same year, a 3rd button for Nancy's Fast pitch video games of 2012, and a 4th button for Nancy's fast pitch Photo slideshow of 2012. I imagine you can do this in Roxio but I don't see how. I always done just one timeline or slideshow on a DVD.

Use "Create DVD". You can add up to about 1 hour of best quality video *slide shows made with Edit Video -Advanced) on a single layer DVD. You can use a "canned" menu or make one of your own.

 

If you want to do high definition and have a compatible blu-ray player you can make an AVCHD disc with about 40 minutes on it.

Just installed NXT over 2011. NXT said it was uninstallin all of 2011 but has left Roxio Burn behind. A new version has been installed but the registryu seems to be pointing still at the 2011 version.

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Roxio 2011\Roxio Burn\RoxioBurnLauncher.exe"

I also have a version of BackOnTrack installed from an even older version. The file version of the exe is 4.0.0.0

I am on Windows 7 (X64) and neither apear in the "Programs and Features" list so I am unsure how to get rid of them.

I dont want to get too experimental as NXT is working fine, at least on the few things I have tested so far.

Shall I just leave them be and put up with teh windows resource and disk spave they utilise or is there a way to clean up the leftover trash.
