    Solution for Pinnacle Studio 16 installation on Windows 8.1

    Pinnacle Studio 16 fix for Windows 8.1.
    Just replace the value of the registry key VersionNT stored in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/ Wow6432Node/Avid/Studio 2. Change value to 602 from 603 if VersionNT key is present.

    *If there is no key VersionNT key present then choose create a new value and name it VersionNT then edit it and and add the value 602 to it.

     

    Steps to make the change for those unfamiliar with these things

    First I recommend that you completely uninstall all of Pinnacle, then restart your computer and perform a fresh install. This will remove any prior patches and changes you've made. 

    DO NOT OPEN THE SOFTWARE PROGRAM after install and perform the following steps.   

    1.     Move mouse to top right hand corner in Win 8.1

    2.     Select search and type run and hit enter

    3.     At the bottom left a window will appear, type regedit and hit enter

    4.     Click yes to enter registry editor

    5.     Select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

    6.     Select software

    7.     Select Wow643node

    8.     Select Avid

    9.     Select Studio 2

    10.  Now on the right you will see some Key items. If VersionNT is not listed then right click on that page and selectnew string value. Now name that VersionNT.   

    11.  Now right click on VersionNT and select modify

    12.  Under Value Data enter 602  

    13.   That’s it!

    14.   Exit out of everything and restart your computer.

    Now proceed to download And install PinnacleStudio16_1_0_Patch that will help speed up the software.

    This has been tried by numerous people and does not work in some circumstances - notably a virgin install of W8.1, not one patched from W8.0. Pinnacle have also reported that some of Studio 16's DLLs need changing or S16.1 will run unreliably. And having got S16 installed, I can't seem to install S17 as well.

    So can people please report if this does, or does not, work for them, and in particular if S16 is no less unstable in W8.1 as before.

    Betreft: Solution for Pinnacle Studio 16 installation on Windows 8.1

    I wonder why this fix for Studio 16 was posted in the forum for Studio 15 and older. Does it work for older versions, too? In particular the PinnacleStudio16_1_0_Patch?

    No - I've only just noticed that the OP has put it in the wrong part of the forum. IMHO it's not a complete solution anyway. I'll try to move it.
