C++ Runtime Error when launching Easy Media Creator

1. You will need to restart the services manually in order for these errors to be resolved.

  • Go to Start --> Run --> type in "msconfig" and click OK.
  • Click on the Services tab in the System Configuration Utility window.
  • Activate the following services by checking them (numbers will vary depending on the version of Easy Media Creator you have installed):
  • RoxioDB9
  • Roxio Hard Drive Watcher 9
  • Roxio UPnP Renderer9
  • Roxio UPnP Server 9
  • LiveShare P2P Server 9


If you have Creator 8, then the number "9" will not appear in the service name.

  • Click Apply, then Close.
  • You will receive a message to Restart or Exit Without Restart. Choose Restart.
  • After restarting, a new dialog window will pop up saying your system configuration has changed. Check the box at the end of the message to stop the message from reappearing. Click OK.
  • Launch Easy Media Creator.


If the services do not exist in the System Configuration Utility, you will need to reinstall Easy Media Creator with your AntiVirus and Firewall applications off. Please consult your AntiVirus and Firewall manufacturer on how to temporarily disable their applications.

    The  procedure is complicated and not easy to follow by any user. I suggest that either Roxio or the new  owner (Corel) make a correction and supply it to every customer who acquired the software. The LPs and Tape utility is an important part of the whole program. A Pulvirenti
