Pinnacle Studio 14 with Vista 64 Bit? Good or bad?

by Sandpebblesfilm / February 13, 2010 10:48 AM PST

I've read some horror stories on forums about people who installed Pinnacle Studio 12 on 64 bit computers with Vista.

Has anyone used Pinnacle Studio 14? I understand it is compatible with 64 bit Vista but would like to get any personal experience information possible.

Thank you.

What does Google say?

What does Google say? A simple search along the lines of "Pinnacle Studio 14 Vista 64-bit compatibility" should be quite enlightening.

Generally speaking, there's no real compatibility difference between the 64 and 32-bit versions of Windows except that the 64-bit versions have no 16-bit support. That's no loss, because all of that should have been left behind a decade ago if not more. Otherwise, typically any app that will run on the 32-bit Vista will run on the 64-bit version. There are a few minor exceptions, but as a general rule. I don't know why it is people seem to freak out because one OS is 64-bit and the other is 32-bit. There's virtually no difference as far as the average user is concerned.

Should be fine EXCEPT when there are CODEC issues.
