Transferring Studio 10 content reports an error in Windows Vista 7

This FAQ is for Windows Vista/7 users only. 

Some Studio 10 content discs were originally made for use in Windows XP only. As a result, a different procedure is required to transfer this content for use in Studio 12.0 and higher. As part of the content transfer procedure you are asked to install the content disc from Studio 10. The following link takes you to the FAQ on how to use the Content Transfer Wizard: How to use the Content Transfer Wizard

If the disc was originally made for use with Windows XP only, you will get an error. The error may vary depending on the disc being used (Bonus Disc, HFX disc, RTFX disc, etc). The error for the Studio 10 Bonus disc looks like this:

To work around this, please follow this procedure:

  1. Create a new folder on your desktop. You can do this by right-clicking on a blank spot on your desktop and select New - Folder. It would be a good idea to rename this folder to something that you will recognize, like "Studio 10 Bonus Disc." You can rename the folder by right-clicking on it and selecting Rename.
  2. Insert the content disc that you want to transfer. If the auto-run starts, cancel it.
  3. Go to Start - Computer and locate the CD/DVD drive with the disc in it. Right-click on it and select Explore.
  4. Select all of the contents on the disc by pressing Ctrl-A.
  5. Next, either drag the contents of the disc into the new folder on the desktop or copy and paste it into the new folder.
  6. Open the new folder on the desktop. Locate the Setup executable file. This will have different names depending on what you are installing. Here are examples of content discs and the corresponding Setup executable file name:


  • Studio 10 Bonus DVD - Setup.exe
  • Hollywood FX Volume 1 - hfxVolume1Full.exe
  • Hollywood FX Volume 2 - hfxVolume2Full.exe
  • Hollywood FX Volume 3 - hfxVolume3Full.exe
  • RTFX Volume 1 - RTFxVolume1.exe
  • RTFX Volume 2 - RTFxVolume2.exe
  • Premium Pack 1 - Setup.exe
  • Premium Pack 2 - Setup.exe


  1. Right click on the setup executable icon and select Properties.
  2. In the next window select the Compatibility tab and select the option to run the program in compatibility mode for Windows XP (SP2). See the image below for an example:  


  1. Click Apply.
  2. Next locate the setup executable again in the new folder and double-click on it to install.
  3. Once it is installed, run the Content Transfer Wizard again to make the content available in Studio.
