    I'm having the same problem. When I try to install the Pinnacle Studio QuickStart version 10 the process bar stops and does nothing anymore.

    Anybody knows if I need some patch or driver?


  • gofixyaself Apr 13, 2008

    Same problem - installation freezes less than 5% in. Pinnacle does not support Studio v10 - they suggest purchasing v11.

    I have the exact same problem, but with Studio version 12. I tried with the fix for studio 10, but it didn't work. Please, anyone help..

    I have the same problem, I spent a ton on the set up too, hopefully the fix will work.

    Same Problem. Pinnacle Studio Quickstart version 10 stops installing at 2%. I also have a problem with the Dazzle Instant DVD Recorder 100 version 2.0. It gets stuck in the Creating Menu stage and you have to shut down your computer to even be able to stop the DVD from spinning. You then have to throw the disk away. I have used this program for 3 months now and I have this happen about every 4th disk. The tech support says check the VHS box. That has helped sometimes.

I found a download patch on the knowledge network at website. They don't advertise the fix, but I searched for "installation failure studio 10" and found an entry for downloading pixie5updater. Apparently there is a problem with some dual-core machines with IE7.

I loaded it the other day and all went smooth and works well. Have you made sure that your system has enough power to run this program. I have found in the past with my smaller computers that this has been the problem when trying to load programs and they stop. Just a thought.

You can contact Pinnacle and ask them for a replacement key, but I would suspect they will want you to buy an upgrade to your software. If your new PC is windows 7, your 2004 software will probably not work with it even if you have a code for it.
The good news is that the newer version probably has more features etc. and an upgrade option (if there is one) can save you $ over buying a full version.
I know for my own example that Roxio (another CD/DVD program) is only compatible with windows 7 on their 2010, and now their 2011 versions. Anything else will not work.

Pinnacle Studio 11

From the looks of it there's no Vista support yet. Pinnacle Systems needs to come out with somekind of patch soon. I've been looking for an hour as well. Couldn't find anything but people discussing the fact that they need the patch badly. On the Pinnacle site there's a link to software for Dazzle Video Creator 9 but it leads to an error page.

I guess you'll have to watch carefully when an update arrives.
Or try to find something of an automatic update feature in the software, maybe it'll find something.

You can try simpler programs such as Windows Movie Maker but I don't think it suits your needs when you want to edit stuff.

Another solution might be Sony Vegas.
For more information on the Sony Vegas product family, click link below:

I hope this will help you out. It's really frustrating that you buy software and then you can't use it on Vista.

Pinnacle studio version 500 usb serial number ? hard drive lost all software ?

you will probably have to download a cracked copy from a torent site, unless pinnacle are willing to send you a serial.
Try this if you are willing to take the risk of using Torrent sites.
You will need a torrent client like UTorrent to download torrents

This is illegal. Please buy this product.

I gave this answer for your best. Because with an illegal key you will not be able to download updates & get support.

Additionally you make a crime.

Pinnacle Studio 10 DVD -NTSC Bonus disc

The installer for Studio 12 (upgrade version) includes a "Transfer Files" option which permits you to install previous bonus discs from Studio 10 and 11 and transfer to 12. However, you have install 12 first (of course).

For those with Vista 64bit systems, Studio 10 will not install on your Vista 64bit OS pc. However, if you have the Studio 10 disc, you can purchase the Studio 12 upgrade version. During the installment process, you will be directed on how to utilize the Studio 10 disc to advance the installation process.
