  • My 2 cents for those wanting to try EDIUS 6 on a EDIUS 5.5 system

    Since we know there will be problems on an existing EDIUS 5.5 system once you install EDIUS 6 for a trial - and then uninstall it later on ...

    Why not this method - I think it will be more or less 100% failsafe ....

    a) Take a full disk backup of your WINDOWS system using Arconis

    b) Install your EDIUS 6 - play around with it until your heart contented

    c) Instead of trying to uninstall EDIUS 6, just restore your full disk backup over the EDIUS 6 installation.

    This method will overcome 99.9% of the problems members are now currently experiencing.

    Extreme but would work. Segate has a free set of utilities for download on their website called "Disc Wizard" that does this. You only need to own a Seagate drive to download the software.

      Why extreme? I use Acronis true image a lot if I want to test software out, has worked flawlessly. Backing up and restoring complete windows drives is a matter of minutes, that's how I tested edius 6 on my production machine and currently I"m back to version 5.51 with a push of a button. You just need a separate drive to store the backup on.

        This 2 cents will definitely save a lot of folks a major headache - like some of our members are experiencing right now.

        I always backup my system before I put in any major software changes. Works like a charm for rolling back unwanted germlins :-).
