Help needed with Showbiz, PLEASE : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Hi there

I use showbiz to create slide shows, and last night I was making one for a 21st. First when I went into create the VCD, it come up saying could not find the ligos MPEG encoder. It has never done this before, and I don't even know what a ligos MPEG encoder is or how to find it. Then after I reloaded to try again, all the vital tools from the program are missing (transitions, sample colours, textures, stills) which makes the program useless to me!!! I can not uninstall and reinstall because my computer came with shoowbiz pre-installed and I do not even have a disc for it. I did a system restore to the earliest date possible, and that did not rectify my problem. Some very helpful person gave me this link, and I hope that someone here may be able to offer some wisdom. Also when I was reloading, I had to relink some of the files? Many many thanks, if you are able to help me out,

Kind Regards Kellie

I'm going to assume that this now happens every time you try to make a VCD.

It sounds like something has damaged the software on your computer. Have you recently installed any new programs, or somehow picked up any adware? I am guessing the only way to get this program back is to uninstall it, make sure nothing is conflicting with it, and re- install it.

You should have a disc to restore the program with, or a complete "system restore" disc that reloads all the programs on your machine. If you don't, and you paid for the program, I would suggest asking your computer salesperson why you don't have a disc to reload the program.
