Will not open.

I have Magix Music Maker 2004 deluxe. When I click on the icon, the icon flashes one time very quickly but do not open the program. Task manager says it is running. I do not see it. This has been happening for awhile. Normally I just restart my computer, then it opens. I restarted, shutdown, uninstalled, and reinstalled. Nothing is working. I have Windows 10. I like this program. I have been using it for years. Help!

It's an old program. Chances are that it no longer compatible with Windows 10.

As @Graham-Hawker has stated - the program is too old and was only certified to run on Windows versions up to and including Windows XP.

If you purchase a Windows 10 compatible version then:-

  • Projects from the 2004 version may not open in the new version
  • Soundpools in the 2004 version may no longer be usable or available
  • Instruments from the old version are not compatible and some are no longer available.
