I had to do a clean install of my XP professional on my 2 year old computer. Now when I go to reinstall my studio 11 plus program, it says that I need Service Pack 2 on my computer. It is already there, so how do I get around this enigma? I am some what of a self made geek myself, but do come across some weird stuff from time to time. Can somebody help? I tried the directions given by the Pinnacle website where I put the install program into a folder on my desktop and install from safe mode. Safe mode installation had the same message come up. :huh:

You can download it and reinstall it, although you really should have SP3 installed to have minimal O/S security at this date. From SP2 to SP3, there are more than over 100 critical updates you may be missing.

Your O/S may be damaged currently, installing SP2 or SP3 may overcome such.

Hello, and Happy New Year to you as well!

Tried what you had suggested and it didn't make any difference. So I am going to try uninstalling the service packs 2 & 3 and then reinstalling. Hopefully that will do the trick, otherwise I'll be back :busy:

I wouldn't uninstall /backwards compatibility service packs It could damage your operating system.
