Default edius 7.20 & windows 8.1

I tried to install my new edius 7.20 on my new machine
with windows 8.1, It doesn't working.
It install on clean machine with your instruction & activation, after the installation the software can't start.
I saw in other forums that some people have the same problem
with the new windows 8.1
I delete it from my new system and install back the edius 6.55 that
working on that machine good.

My system configuration:
Dual xeon cpu e5-2680 v2
64 giga ram
intel server board 2600coe

Are going to release a new update for the new windows 8.1?

That has been my experience aswell.

Just tried again yesterday, no matter what I do, I just cant get Edius 7.20 to work in Win 8.1 64bit, and yet, no problem with Win8.

I'll just wait for the Edius 7 update.

Strange, I've had no problems installing it under Win 8.1 on multiple systems. Did you remember to add it to the excludes in Windows defender, or any other Antivirus you may have on your system? (Although I've not had to do this myself)

Default 7.20 Runs on Win 8.1 But crashes - so what's new?

Edius has been continually crashing on me for my last three computers.....and last three versions from v6 to 7.20.

I sadly upgraded to Win 8.1 last week not knowing that GV would be so behind. Edius 7.20 still opens and works for a few edits before crashing - but this is nothing new - it has always crashed daily on me ever since v6! I have found it to be the biggest waste of my money and the most frustrating piece of software I ever come across! I have in the past year only managed to cut one wedding video and burn one dvd on my $5500 computer with Edius - as it never works - only crashes!

GV support has to date been about as useful as me putting a brick through the monitor - only a brick might feel better but obviously only for a moment!

Edius has now had crashed during an ingest of Sony XDCAM EX from a Sony SXS Card and has now corrupted a client's wedding video! Sorry to say but GV Edius to me has been the most useless thing I have ever wasted money on!

How sad that I've had to go back to trying to cut wedding videos on Corel VideoStudio X4 on an old Toshiba laptop for crying out loud!!! Even though its only really a consumer based program and very basic - AT LEAST IT WORKS!!!

Can anyone tell HOW FRUSTRATED I AM YET??? Why is Edius so unstable and unusable?

I've been running Edius 6.5 on Win 8 since it's release, no problems. I updated to 8.1 when it was released. Also no problems. Seems like these problems would have to be either anti-virus software or hardware issues.

I have been a GV/Canopus user since Rex M1 and have never had a problem with crashing unless it was self inflicted. Usually I wait for the upgrades and os updates to become stable before moving up. Also I read the forum daily to see what other users are having difficulty with.
I just updated to 7.21 from 6.5 an my os is win 7 64bit. All my systems are rock solid.

My exerience with GV support has been extremely helpful. My advice to you
is to hold back a bit and shoot for the leading edge rather than the bleeding edge

Thanks GV for such an outstanding editing platform.
Happy New Year to all
