    It will install but you may face some troubles with some features.

    What is the problem with your old laptop.

    Maybe a fresh install of your OS and drivers may give life back to your laptop (make sure you backup your documents before doing this step).

    Have you checked the health status of your HDD.

    I'm a few weeks late getting here but would like to say that I've used Studio 12 on WinXP, Win7, Win8.1 and now Win10 and it works exactly as it did on day 1.

    The only thing I've done is to Run As Administrator though I did this so long ago that I don't know if it is really needed.

    The only "major" thing that does not work is AlphaMagic transitions and some Standard transitions. This is due to nVidia driver updates a few years back which changed something that S12 needs for these.

    The broken transitions will still work as normal if Hardware Acceleration is disabled in S12 but that then stops most of the HFX transitions from working.

    S12 (I find) doesn't handle mp4 very well but will work fine with mpeg-2 (DVD quality) and can still import most "standard" movie files, .mov, mpg etc.

    I've found I cannot drag n drop from Windows 10 "Explorer" to the S12 timeline like I could prior to Win10 but this is normal with most older programs. You just have to load files via the S12 menus instead.

    I guess this is the perfect demonstration of what I stated earlier :

    This is off topic but I just noticed something weird going on in this forum...

    I came here today by chance while checking to see if my oldest Firefox bookmarks were still alive.

    While looking briefly at the various threads I noticed that several people all joined this forum on the exact same day that I did - or the day before - 9th and 10th of May 2007.

    There are two posters in this thread besides myself and others (such as  culpanr) in other threads. Is this a weird coincidence or something else?

    Meanwhile, it is exactly 20 years this month since I bought Pinnacle Studio 1 for a Windows 98 PC. I wonder if that would work on Windows 10 !?

    The only way to find out is to try it out, but I believe you won't have any luck at all since many features may not work very well on Windows 10. Maybe you might be a little bit luckier on Windows XP.

    Oh yes, the original Pinnacle Studio definitely worked on XP. I don't have it or a copy of WinXP anymore though.

    I do still have an original copy of Studio 7 (which was really Studio v2). There never was a Studio 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.

    Well, you can just try to see if you don't get any errors. You may need to install it as "run as administrator" on Windows 7 or Windows 10, but more than likely Pinnacle Studio 1 may not install properly at all.

    May 2007 was when this forum software was enabled. If you were a member before using the previous forum software you would have been added by pinnacle. This was done on batches.
