There now exists several different versions of the various Corel products.

To further assist with troubleshooting errors please include the Full Version number of your software.

Using MovieFactory as an example:
DVD MovieFactory Version 4 Disc Creator (ESD Download)
DVD MovieFactory Version 4 Disc Creator (Boxed Version)
DVD MovieFactory Version 4 LE

Please also indicate if you have installed any service packs.

Devil wrote: Some codec packs are incompatible with much video software. Some codecs in them conflict with the codecs that MSP, VS, WS, MF and other NLEs use.

It is known that these sometimes cause:
a) no video
b) no audio
c) unforeseen crashes

If you have a codec pack of whatever make installed and suffer from any of the above problems, you may find that uninstalling the pack will be the solution for you.

We have seen this solution has worked twice in the past day or two, with two of the above programs, and a search on this and other forums will reveal other cases.

Options at Bottom of Message Post

When you're typing in your post/reply, at the bottom there are 4 options with checkboxes:
  • Disable BBCode in this post. Read the first word again, it is Disable. So when you are going to use any BBCode please DO NOT CHECK the box beside this option. When you check this box, it is telling the PHP to ignore all the BBCode tags, resulting in the tags being visible in your post.
  • Disable Smiles in this post. Again this is not to enable them, but to Disable them. Do not check this if you want to see smilies.
  • Attach signature (signatures can be changed in profile). This is to attach a signature block (mine is an image of all my programs) below each post.
  • Notify me when a reply is posted. This does not always work, due to the antiquated phpBB2 the web board uses. Check if you desire.
I wish that phpBB would change the wording to Enable so that it is not so easily confused.

The main concern is that if you are going to use any BBCode in your posts, please do not check that first box.
