Everyone here is the correct fix so that Pinnacle Studio 16 runs on Win 8.1
Pinnacle Studio 16 fix for Windows 8.1. Just replace the value of the registry key VersionNT stored in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/ Wow6432Node/Avid/Studio 2. Change value to 602 from 603 if VersionNT key is present.
*If there is no key VersionNT key present then choose create a new value and name it VersionNT then edit it and and add the value 602 to it.
Steps to make the change for those unfamiliar with these things
First I recommend that you completely uninstall all of Pinnacle along with bonus packs in control panel/uninstall a program, then restart your
computer and perform a fresh install of Pinnacle Studio. This will remove any prior patches and changes you've made.
DO NOT OPEN THE SOFTWARE PROGRAM after install and perform the following steps.
1- Move mouse to top right hand corner in Win 8.1
search and type run and hit enter
the bottom left a window will appear, type regedit and hit enter
yes to enter registry editor
10- Now on the right you will see some Key items. If VersionNT is
not listed then right click on that page and select new string value. Now name that VersionNT.
right click on VersionNT and select modify
Value Data enter 602
out of everything and restart your computer.
Now proceed to download And install PinnacleStudio16_1_0_Patch that will help speed up the software.
