i cannot install corel win dvd 2010. i even had tech support try and they failed. it seems to install but the icon does not open the program. i have win 7x64. i have tried to uninstall and install several times but the same result. i have used a trial version of windvd before i bought it. i still have time to return it for refund,but it was fairly cheap so i do not want to if i do not have to.

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Here is the Corel web site support page link.


Which version do you have, the Pro or standard version?

Check this link for the standard and pro tabs.


Here is the Windows 7 compatibility link.


Try going to the folder Win DVD is installed in and try clicking the icon there to open the program.
You may need to run it under Administrator rights, which is possible by right clicking the icon and choosing 'run as administrator'

If the program runs Okay after this, you can right click the desktop shortcut icon and choose PROPERTIES, SHORTCUT TAB, look for ADVANCED then look for a box next to RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR. Put a check mark here, than OKAY.

You can also do this through the icon found in the folder Win DVD is installed in, however, this icon will not be a shortcut icon like I described above.

Hope this helps.
