  • Demo installs for anyone?

    I downloaded the Edius demo zip off the website. I extracted the files and discovered that there are 3 setup.exe files and other files that are labeled the same.

    There are more than one type of demo in this zip file? Looks like it. What a mess!

    I tried to extract only the files with some sort of indication they were for Edius but then when I try to install I am told that files are missing.

    If I just try to extract all the files am asked if I want to replace other files because there are so many in the zip file that are labeled the same. When I do extract the files and try to install the program via the setup.exe it asks me for a serial number.

    I have never ever ever had an issue installing a major program. What's up Canopus?

    Well Gregster, I use edius and have never tried to d/l any of the demos, so I don't know what to say to you.

    But this is another eg maybe of things that need to be addressed by GV as I have posted here
    (scroll to last entry on this page - peterC).

    For any prospective new user, the last thing they need to encounter is problems first. Hope this doesn't scare you off, Edius is worth looking at and worth having.

      It sounds like you are not asking the ZIP utility to preserve the folder names.

          Before I had my NX I D/L the Edius trial to see how it worked. I had no trouble with it.

          I D/L to my office pc, copied to an external drive, connected this to my video pc and installed. I did spend about 10 mins sorting out the serial number, but found it where it is shown above.

            You may also ask a dealer if he still has a demo CD in stock.
