  1. Hello, still couldn't find a file named 'videopad.exe' but in that file path folder was a 'videopad' file that I ran as administrator too, unfortunately didn't seem to change the functionality. The same error message appeared when I changed to low resolution as above. I appreciate your continued efforts.
  2. Hi, No change after rebooting of computer. I searched for 'videopad.exe' and brought up the file 'vppsetup'. I ran this as administrator and it opened the program after re-accepting the licence agreement. At first I thought this finally solved the problem as it seemed to allow creation of more formats. Unfortunately I have since tried to create a .wmv file (which was working earlier) and I am getting the previous message again "Failed to create your movie. Could not initialize video output". I tried other versions such as mp4 and the video cuts off the sides of the screen so my text can't be fully read. Any further suggestions greatly appreciated.
  3. Hello, thanks for your continued help. I deleted the contents of the Components folder (it was hidden but found it by searching %appdata%), I also allowed Videopad Video Editor program as an allowed program through my Windows Firewall. When I reopened Videopad and exported the project, the following folders appeared in the Components folder: ffmpeg19, x264enc7. When I attempt to export the project, the error message now reads:"Failed to create your movie. The specified file path appears to be locked". It still allows .mpg to be created. Thanks
  4. Hello again and thank-you for your help and suggestions. As kindly suggested, I deleted the Components folder and restarted the program, but found that the trial version no longer allows any export of the project (perhaps it only allowed a limited time initially?). I found my original registration code but couldn't use it as it was an older version of the program. I repurchased the program, but am receiving the same error messages with any format except for .mpg. The error messages are: "Error ShellExecuteEx failed; code 1155. No application is associated with the specified file for this operation. Error Failed to create your movie. Could not initialize video output." I don't understand why my newly paid version doesn't work for the other formats that I require to play on other media such as TV. Any further advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you.
  5. Thank-you very much for your responses, I really appreciate your help. I am currently using trial version 3.89, which I assume is the lastest version as I only downloaded it this week? I had tried multiple of the available formats without success yesterday. Thank-you for your suggestion, I tried .mpg today and it worked! I'm not sure how versatile this format is (to play on TV, PC etc) so am still keen to understand why the other formats are not working. I was unable to find the "output format box" selection. I assume .vpj can't be played on other devices. (I had previously purchased a copy of the program but lost it when my computer hard drive crashed) Thanks again
  6. I am unable to export any version of my project, the error message reads "could not initialise video output", I would be grateful for any advice, thanks
