Why do I get "The Parameter is incorrect error" message in Pinnacle Studio 9.3 when the photo icon is selected.

In Pinnacle Studio 9.3 I get this error message: "The Parameter is incorrect" error when I try to select the photo icon. Pinnacle Studio works fine on other PCs. This PC only has 512MB RAM - could that be it? I\'m using Windows XP.

    I found a sort of solution; there's a 9.4 version patch. Unfortunately it now takes ages to open the directories to video or graphics files.

    This is stupid; I tried to create a new papagraph to instead my solution was posted twice. YOU NEED TO FIX THAT FIXYA.

    Thanks for everyone's suggestions.

    Tim. I've been in touch with Pinnacle but they never replied - I will have nothing more to do with them until they do reply. I don't think upgrading to the latest version 17 is a valid solution; I've been looking at some of the Forums and I've noticed that many of the bugs and issues people were complaining about when Pinnacle Studio 9 was new still exist. Upgrading this is like adding new floors to an already shaky building. Also I would probably need to upgrade my system. Pinnacle only offer support for version 15 and above.

    Nic and CompuWayn. As you say Pinnacle Studio 9 is 32bit. Upgrading the OS is not a solution for this PC, as I said it has only got 512Mb of memory in two slots and that's the maximum it can take. I've tried putting 1G in there and the thing wouldn't boot - it's a Mercury MBoard. Win 7 might work but I'm sure it will be slow and then to run in compatibility mode will surely make things even slower. To upgrade the OS means I need to buy a new computer; I can't really affort that at this time - I'm currently between jobs.

    So once again; it's me who found the solution albeit not a very good one as I said before.

    Thanks for everyone's suggestions.

SOURCE: pinnacle studio v 9 not compatible with windows vista?

Only version 10 (and higher) is supported for Windows Vista.

They have pretty good deal going on for upgrades. I think you can upgrade to version 11 for $58.00

I found with pinnacle 12 if you turn of the hardware acceleration and turn off the full-res preview,in video and audio preferences it speeds up transitions and text effects tremendously

Pinnacle studio 14 problems


Recently there was a solution given for this problem. All you need to do is reboot your computer and then download a patch called PS16_fix_for_Windows_8_1_32and64.exe by searching it from the internet and then run it on your pc. After the patching is done then the Pinnacle Studio 16 will just run fine on your Windows 8.1 preview.

What to do with the following problem? It startet after installing pinnacle studio HD. I had studio 9 on my pc. Then I brought my extern harddisk to Holland for using the fileditor on my laptop and after...


Hello lilianwijn
I'm not quite sure I have understood your problem .
Probably a compatibility issue with File Editor . While this file is still available, the developer is no longer updating or supporting this product . Runs under 32 bits systems .
Delete File Editor , Pinnacle Studio HD and Studio 9 . Reinstall first Studio 9 . Do not install programs on the external HDD . If situation is returned to normal , try reinstalling Studio HD ( maybe not compatible with 32 bits systems ) .
I hope this will help .
Best regards,
fanaudi .

File/Folder Permission Message in Pinnacle Studio 11 Plus


Hello welcome to FIxya!

Here you can check this procedure on how to open your files again.

"1) Check your Recycle Bin
2) Do a Folder/File Search for each of the Grey Folder Project names. This will display all Folders & Files with that Project Name. You are looking for an .stx File. If it's there, right-Click on Project Name / Open Containing Folder & Copy it to your My Projects Folder. Then you should have both the Grey Folder & .stx File for the same Project name, showing in your My Projects Folder.
If the Search doesn't display a .stx File, you can create a new one, by Opening a New empty Project, which will create a My Movie Grey Folder & a My Movie .stx File, Save to your My Projects Folder. Delete the My Movie Grey Folder & Rename the My Movie .stx File to the same name as your original Grey Folder."
So ...after finding my "lost" movie file, with its file name, under Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects i then went through the following procedures using your great advice Colour;
  1. Make a copy of your found "lost" movie grey film icon file by right mouse clicking on your lost file and choosing "copy". Paste the copy into another folder in Documents where you can find it if need be
  2. Then go back to Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects and right mouse click onto your grey film icon. Choose "rename". Then rename your "lost" grey film icon to a new file name but do not put .stc at the end of the file name, if you are operating VISTA and Pinnacle 12. This is important because Pinnacle 12 won't recognise the file later if you have .stc in the file name
  3. Open Pinnacle and go to the File Menu
  4. Click on New Project
  5. Open File Menu again and click on Save File as
  6. Give the file a name such as "Movie 7" and save it
  7. Close out of Pinnacle
  8. Open up Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects and observe that you now have 2 new files there ...a grey film icon file saying Movie 7 AND a coloured Pinnacle icon file saying Movie 7
  9. Delete the grey icon file with the file name Movie 7
  10. Now give your coloured Pinnacle icon file the exact same rename as your precious "lost" renamed grey movie icon file, using the right mouse click on rename proceedure as explained in No.2 above.
  11. Close out of Documents file
  12. Now open up Pinnacle again
  13. Go to Menu and choose Open Project
  14. There you will see the coloured Pinnacle icon file with the new name of your "lost" movie file.
  15. Click onto its coloured Pinnacle icon, and watch your "lost" movie come into view again
