Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library error when starting Roxio creator


Hi.

I have had several questions from users getting Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library errors when starting Roxio Creator 2010 and previous versions.
After the error prompt, the software will close down.

The problem is caused by a system error , and this sometimes is causedby Microsoft self installing update, that confuse settings of installedsoftware.

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Libraries are part of the operativesystem, and this kind of Run time errors are commonly caused whenapplications try to access resources that are allocated for otherprocesses.

A new Roxio installation did not fix the problem, because the newinstallation will still keep the registry settings from oldinstallation.

If the problem started recently you can try the following:

Uninstall Roxio.
Do a System Restore to a date before the problem started.
Reinstall Roxio.

See: How to install System restore.

If that does not fix the problem you can also try the following;

Uninstall Roxio
Create a new user with administrator privileges
Log in using the New User account
Install Roxio again.

If the problem was bound to local user settings, this will fix the problem.

If the problem is still there, then the most efficient way to proceedis by doing a new Windows installation, using a Windows setup disk or arecovery disk for your computer.
Do a full backup of your data before reinstalling Windows.

See:Install, reinstall, or uninstall Windows

The solution does not apply only to Roxio, but can fix the same problem on different software.

Regards.

Recently bought & installed Roxio 2011 on Windows XP and it worked fine. Upgraded laptop to Windows 7. Roxio stopped working. Uninstalled all Roxio programs and reinstalled Roxio Creator 2011. No...


If you are getting the error at startup, roxio service might not started or disabled. What you can try to do is to enable all roxio service. refer to the steps below.
- click start > run - type services.msc - look for all roxio service i.e roxwatch.db - double click it then select the startup type to automatic - save the changes then restart computer

Cheers . . .

I installed Roxio Photosuite 8 on my Windows XP. Now it keeps trying to install whenever I start the computer. How do I get it to stop? It's already installed!!!!


Go to start/ run/ type in "msconfig'
Choose "Selective Start Up"/ then click the "Start Up" tab on the top.
uncheck anything that says Roxio/ restart.
You can pretty much safely uncheck everything except your Anti Virus.

Can't open Roxio


Maybe your activation your your software is illegal. or maybe your installer doesn't really have all the requirements or the needed components to have full the instalation process. try to reinstall your software, but if it doesn't work, maybe you can call your software dealer.
