Since then, I have re-installed W7 (Home) from scratch and done a complete software update.Pinnacle Studio 14 installed perfectly on this W7, but then struck BSOD frequently during rendering of disk images, and I suspect my attempts to implement the various fixes sugegsted elsewhere have fouled up thie installation.
If I can't get it working on re-installed W7 I shall try installing WinXP instead.
Many thanks for your fast responses - much appeciated!
Then re-installed Pinnacle Studio 14;no problem with there.
Despite all that, when I started my annual use of Studio recently, I got one BSOD whilst editing a video track, and three (all at different times) whilst creating a 4GB DVD image on hard drive (for output to a DVD).
The BSOD error was something like: IRQL_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL
You can see the W7 BSOD minidump for both occasions here:
1st was when editing:
2nd when rendering --> |Dvd file on internal drive:
(After the 3 BSOD's when generating the 4GB file, the 4th attempt succeeded and wrote the file to the DVD.)
What can be the problem with just reading from, rendering, and writing to an internal drive?
