Customer Question
I have installed my...

I have installed my Pinnacle Studio 16 Ultimate on my desktop. The OS for my desktop is: Windows 10, version 1703.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model of your laptop?

When I try to open Pinnacle Studio, I get a message that says: The Operating System has been upgraded after Studio has been installed. Some or all of the programs features may not operate correctly. We recommend that you re-install the software. When I attempt to re-install I get a message that says: All components have already been installed on your computer. My Pinnacle Studio 16 Ultimate will not open. It's not a laptop, it's a Dell desktop

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

That will do it.

You will need to uninstall Pinnacle before reinstalling. Do you know how to do this?

When I uninstall then re-install the installation goes fine. When I try to open I get the same message.

Have you ever edited anything in the registry before?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No
Tech Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

Okay, there are two possible ways to solve this issue. I will start with the easy one. Please right-click on the shortcut you are using to open Pinnacle and choose Properties. On the properties Window, select compatibility tab make sure that all boxes in this tab are unchecked. Click OK. Try to launch Pinnacle again and see if the issue is resolved.

All boxes in compatibility tab are unchecked. When I tried to launch Pinnacle again I got the same message.
Tech Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

Okay, you will need to edit the registry in that case. Editing the registry is usually a last resort because editing the wrong key can really mess up your computer. I can walk you through the process or I can connect and do this for you. Which is easier for you?

walk me through it
Tech Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

Okay, please open the registry by pressing the Windows key + R and type "regedit" into the Run... box

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
what is the "Windows key +R"?
Tech Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

Press the windows key and R at the same time.

Once that opens, expand the following folders in order HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Wow6432Node > Avid. Then click on the folder Studio 2.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Tech Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

In Studio 2 you should see a short list of files. Do you see one called VersionNT?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
There is no AVID folder in WOW6432Node
Tech Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

Have you uninstalled Pinnacle or is it currently installed?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It is currently installed
Tech Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

I'm sorry, I can not go any further without seeing what is going on. Avid should be there if Pinnacle is installed. I will open this question up to other experts who may be able to assist you further. Thank you for your patience.

This was not very "satisfactory". Will my $5 be re-funded?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
