Roxio Creator 2009 Special Edition

Question

I am unable to open my Roxio Creator 2009 Special Edition – MyDVD. A pop up screen opens, stating Please wait while windows configures Wal-Mart Music Download at http://mediaplayer.walmart.com/installer/

 

The screen then goes to - Error 1706. No valid source could be found for product Wal-Mart Music Downloads Store. The Windows Installer cannot continue. Every time I try to cancel out or shut down this popup screen, it comes right back, making it impossible to use the MyDVD. In case you don’t know, the Wal-Mart Music Download site is shut down.

 

There are no updates listed for Roxio Creator 2009 Special Edition on the Roxio site. How do I stop this pop up so I can use this expensive, memory hog, super slow piece of crap Roxio Creator 2009?

There are no updates for your Special Edition (nor were there ever probably) since it was a special edition created for WalMart. Your version was probably a cut down version of the full retail version and the WalMart music download was only included with that edition. It was probably quite a bit cheaper then the full retail program.

Good thought, but the problem is actually in the Roxio software. Creator 2009 Special Edition originally logged onto Wal-Mart Music Downloads Store. The problem is that the Wal-Mart site has been taken down, so now when when th Creator 2009 starts up, it still tries to log onto a site that no longer exists. I would hope that Roxio had published a patch to fix this issue, but there are no patches available on the Roxio/Corel site for Creator 2009. The only patch I have been able to find is Creator 2009 Service Pack 4, which doesn't resolve this problem.

The problem is with your edition only since that was created as a OEM version especially for WalMart. The full retail version has nothing to do with WalMart. There are no updates for your version nor will there ever be any.

Digital Guru - You are close. I purchased the software at Sam's (Wal-Mart owned). After tax it was over $100. I have used it very little due to the issues of running super slow, sucking up all open memory (I have 2 gig of memory on my machine) and crashing on a regular basis. The only time I even try to use it is to create a fairly nice menu screen for home videos covered to DVD. I use Nero for the conversion, but Nero's menu style options leave a lot to be desired. I have managed to find a work around after my original post. I can go into Task Manager and shut down the Wal-Mart Music screen and then I can get into Creator 2009. It is a pain in the rear, but it works.

C2009 is not "super slow", it is your system that is probably that is causing the "slowness"
