Problem is: Purchased Pinnacle Studio 14 Ultimate. It will not install. I get the message "incorrect serial number". I am presently using Studio 12. It works OK. Tried Studio 14 trial version it works OK. The company said use their uninstaller to remove all Pinnacle software. Did that and edited the registry, tried to install 14 again, same results. The Avid company has nothing to add. What else con I do? (re-installed Studio 12, it works OK.

Purchased from where?

Online? Which web site.

Or did you purchase a setup CD? If so, from where?

Until you can get it to work I would suggest you halt any payments. If you paid by credit card I would contact them to prevent the payment being made, or if it has been made, notify them that the item is faulty. You may get a refund from the credit card agency.

Things to try though. When you used the uninstaller, did you reboot the computer afterwards? if not that may be why the install of the newer version failed, because the registry had not updated itself.

Purchased from Micro Center in Mayfield Hts., Ohio.
Yes I did reboot after running the uninstaller.

I get the feeling you didn't enter any new serial number. Now-a-day they use such loooong number it's hot to copy all the numbers correctly. So generally use the copy-and-paste method.
