    Pixie5 Updater Patch

    I just purchased the old version of Dazzle DVD Recorder for XP, model number 8.23---with Studio 10.5. It is for a Dell Dimension 5100 that runs Windows XP. But I would like to have the capability of using the device on a Windows 7 Dell. I have the patches to upgrade and do that except for Pixie5Updater which reader forums say is needed for the software to work on IE 7 (not that I'll be using it but you never know).

    I have searched high and wide over the net for this (including the Pixie site on nattyware) but cannot find this anywhere. How can I get this patch?

    Thanks!

    1st time that I read something about this Pixie5Updater !

    To get the Dazzle working you need to update its driver. 

    In this page download the driver for Dazzle DVC 100, depending on your OS being 32 or 64 bits.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I read about it on the Amazon comments on the page from which I ordered. I get a File 404 when I click the link.

    Thank you for your reply. I read about it on the Amazon comments on the page from which I ordered.

    "The bargain is in the software that comes with the unit.  You get Pinnacle Studio 10.5 which provides a good set of video editing functions.  There is a newer release of this software on the market but this version will help to give you a good finished video that can be placed on DVD.  The software and drivers are designed for Windows XP.  Before doing anything I recommend you go to their web site and download the latest driver for the Dazzle DVD Recorder and the Studio updates.  You get version 10.5 of the software.  You will need to download version 10.7, version 10.8, and Pixie5Updater.  Version 10.8 gives you Vista compatability according to Pinnacle but I have not tried it.

    Before installing Studio you should download a patch called Pixie5Updater.  This solves a compatability problem with Internet Explorer 7.  On some PCs Studio will halt installation midway if this patch is not installed first."

    I get a File 404 when I click the link.

    When installing Pinnacle Studio 10 on your Windows 7 I would recommend you to install it as "run as administrator" so you don't have problems during the installation process.

    If you have the installation disc follow this steps:

    1. Insert disc to your computer

    2. when prompted to install the program close it.

    3. Open the drive which has your installation disc in it (start/my computer/highlight drive and right click "open")

    4. Find and select the "setup" or "welcome" icon, right click on it and select "run as administrator".

    5. Follow on screen instructions.
