What operating system is this new computer?

I believe Music Studio 6 by Magix was only available for Windows 98 (possibly Windows 2000), but would not successfully operate in Vista or 7. There would be no patch to fix that, as the code used in programming the Music Studio 6 would be irrelevant in new operating systems.

I think currently, the Music Studio (which the last two releases were renamed Samplitude Producer) is on version 11.5 but in actuality it would be version 18.

Thanks John,

Yeah, I am running vista. Isn't there a way to tell the computer to run a program as if you have an earlier OS?

The problem is that the code used for writing the program is really to old for a newer operating system. With that said, you might try this...

Locate the desktop icon and right mouse click it and Run As Administrator.

This will prompt you a couple authorization checks, but is your best chance at making it work in that environment.

Why have you highjacked someone else's posting?

You need to go to the main music forum screen and post your own question.
