Solved Problem Reinstalling DVD Architect 5

  • Posts: 2
  • Thank you received: 0
My hard drive crashed recently and I had a new hard drive installed. I have Windows 10 build 19042.804 installed. I found the links and passwords for Movie Studio Platinum 13 and DVD Architect 5 from Magix. I have reinstalled MSP 13, But Architect 5 would not reinstall. It keeps coming up asking for installation of Net Framework 3.5. I have tried to download and install .NET Framework from Microsoft, but it will not install.
Does anyone have a solution?
Also would I be better to purchase Vegas Movie Studio 17 Platinum as an upgrade as that should work with Win 10.
If so will VMStudio 17 Platinum come with a later version of DVD Architect. If not can I purchase a later version of DVD Architect that will work with Win 10.
If not is there another program similat to DVD Architect that I could purchase.
Sorry about all the questions guys. I would be very grateful for all and any advice.
Thank you Peter

Hi Peter and welcome to the MSZ Forum :)

I'm not sure what would be causing your problem with .NET Framework 3.5
This is actaully a core component of Windows 10, because many different programs actually use this program to work properly.

The first thing I recommend you do, is turn OFF some Windows Security Settings and make sure Windows Update is configured correctly.
After configuring Windows Update, make sure to Check for Updates.
There are some Windows 10 settings that are excessive and can block perfectly safe programs from installing correctly.
I have instructions for how to do this in a recent reply on the forum here.
Scroll down and start reading the section that says Things to check in Windows 10
www.moviestudiozen.com/forum/movie-studio-platinum/2825-selecting-advanced-options-to-render-causes-the-programme-to-freeze#14218

Next you need to try and force .NET Framework to install.
Go to this FAQ and scroll down to Solution #3.
Follow the instructions and this should get it working.

Let me know if this fixes the problem.

Vegas Movie Studio 17 Platinum
Unfortunately, MAGIX (the new owners of Vegas), have dropped support for DVD Architect.
It is no longer available for sale with Vegas Movie Studio 17 Platinum.
The last version it came packaged with was v16.
However, your older version of DVD Architect will still work with Vegas Movie Studio 17 Platinum if you render your videos for DVDA and import them manually.
I have tutorials on how to do this.

I do recommend you upgrade to Vegas Movie Studio 17 Platinum, especially if you are on a modern computer with a dedicated Nvidia or AMD Radeon graphics card.
Version 17 is far superior to v13 and should run a lot faster if you have a modern computer.
I'm also about to release some beginners guide tutorials for v17, to help people how to set it up and use it.
The price is 50% off right now, via the ad at top of this page!!!

*Please note: If you have any 3rd party Video FX plugins that came with v13, they probably wont work in v17, due to siginificant programming updates in v17.
3rd party Video FX do work in v17, but you will need the latest versions from those 3rd party software companies, for them to work in Vegas.

Derek

Hi Peter,

Please look at the "Solution" by forum member "MusicVid" at Vegas Creative Software:

Cannot install on new PC - wanting to download .NET 3.5 (vegascreativesoftware.info)

That is just if you plan to stay with your current version of Movie Studio, but would never the less be needed should you find a copy of DVD Architect 7.0 available for purchase (Hint: it is NOT available for purchase via the Vegas Creative Software site).  Most people looking for it at the VegasCreativeSoftware forum are having been suggested to purchase a "Retail Copy" of either Movie Studio Platinum 15 or 16 at a "Reputible" seller, as the Suite versions would have had version 7 since the acquisition of the products by Magix.

Hope this helps.

Thanks very much Chief. Unfortunately I tried the solution and it did not work. I think I will have to try and buy a later version of Vegas which has DVD Architect with it.

My Win 10 with DVDA7 has Net Framework 3.5 activated so I suspect DVDA7 needs it . If so upgrading won't help you.

You need to get Net Framework 3.5 working. What in musicvid's post didn't work for you? Did Net Framework 3.5 not appear in the list?

In my first reply, I have already provided the same instructions for how to activate .NET Framework.
In fact, the intructions in my FAQ are more detailed than MusicVid and go much deeper, because they explain how to force Windows to install .NET Framework if it is missing.
The title in my link may seem unrelated, but the solution to your problem is the same as a totally different problem.

This is what I wrote in my first reply:

I just built a new computer, with a fresh install of the latest Windows 10 build.
DVD Architect Studio installed with no problems at all.
