Pinnacle Studio 9

I am trying to get this to run on W7, it runs OK on XP. It won't even go to a set up screen, stops with incompatiable, when double click setup.exe.
Tried copying the CD to a folder and running in Compatibility mode XP and W98,still same error.
Any ideas to get it installed??
Thanks David

Yes, looks like only v12 onwards is compatible click here.

It appears the only way to get it to work on the Win7 system is to run it in XP Mode in a Virtual PC environment click here (btw, there are similar free alternatives if you don't have Win7 Pro & above). But if you have an XP PC already, it would be a waste of time, wouldn't it? G

Thanks for your reply. In the end it looks like V12 or another prog? I will see if there are any other ideas. David

Consider the latest Pinnacle Studio v14 click here (£34), review click here. G

Thanks for you option, will consider.
Is there any free s/w that will create a slide show with sound track that can burn it to DVD (*.VOBs) without needing a conversion prog?
Thanks again David

Can anyone suggest some free S/W that will produce a slide show (incl music track) AND burn to a DVD mpeg2.
Thanks David

Id happly recomend Magix Movie Edit Pro 17 Plus its the best I've used so far, I used to be a Pinnacle Fan but hated it. Since I got Magix its easy to use and you can do some cool special effects!

Thanks for that - but not freeware?

Have you had a look at Windows Movie Maker. I have used it with success.
