Updating 1.2.198 To Sp2 - Post Corel-Roxio Merger

Question

I tried reinstalling Easy VHS to DVD (1.2.198, the first Windows 7 compatible version) earlier tonight, and the "Check for updates" function didn't yield any positive results.

 

As is all too often the case in software company mergers, owners of previous versions are left in the cold. Servers are moved, URLs changed and support pages become a mess. Such is life I guess.

 

After some searching and considerable luck I found the SP1 update. I tried finding the URL again and couldn't.

 

Either way, you might be able to get it to SP2 right away with the Creator 2010 SP2 update which installed without any issues on my computer, even went so far as using Easy VHS to DVD in its text instead of Creator 2010.

 

Roxio Creator 2010 SP2: http://www.roxio.com/Registration/myaccount/Downloads.aspx?download_id=193

 

Some other possibly relevant downloads I found by fishing a little:

 

Roxio Easy VHS to DVD Roxio Easy VHS to DVD Drivers (2009) http://www.roxio.com/Registration/myaccount/Downloads.aspx?download_id=125

RoxioVHStoDVDSP Service Pack (Seems to be for the older, XP and Vista only version): http://www.roxio.com/Registration/myaccount/Downloads.aspx?download_id=127

Update Easy VHS to DVD to SP2 (I'm unsure which version this one is for): http://www.roxio.com/Registration/myaccount/Downloads.aspx?download_id=159

Roxio Creator 2010 SP1: http://www.roxio.com/Registration/myaccount/Downloads.aspx?download_id=191

 

Sincerely,

 

Louis

Next came the 1.2.198 version from 10/2009 to 4/2010. It is compatible with XP, Vista and Win7. Roxio listed only One SP for this version but users report that it updated itself to SP2 if they went through Help-Check for software updates… This version is not compatible with Creator 2010.

The version in question isn't compatible with Creator 2010, in the sense it cannot coexist with it.

 

IIRC, Creator 2010 has the same media capture components included, and that's why the patch for it also works like a charm. In fact, the Creator 2010 SP2 update will in its dialog boxes display "Easy VHS to DVD" instead of Creator 2010!

 

Easy VHS to DVD's built-in "Check for updates" function doesn't work anymore, even to get SP1. This allows us to, at least temporarily, work around the problem.
