I don't understand why some Windows updates block legitimate (and expensive) software, but it's frustrating and annoying. I have to install any Windows update one at a time, reboot, and then ensure Corel VideoStudio still works. Every time I try to bulk install Windows updates, one or more ends up blocking the software, and then I have to uninstall them all and go one by one anyway. *gnashes teeth*

I wrote about this in a previous entry, but for brevity's sake I wanted to consolidate here.

If Corel VideoStudio (vstudio.exe) won't open, and you see an error like this in Event Viewer:

Faulting application name: vstudio.exe, version: 14.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x4e1fb85d
Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.1.7601.19160, time stamp: 0x56bcd5c3
Exception code: 0xc06d007e
Fault offset: 0x0000c52f
Faulting process id: 0x1508
Faulting application start time: 0x01d1839da8774512
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Corel\Corel VideoStudio Pro X4\vstudio.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\syswow64\KERNELBASE.dll
Report Id: e9de57c0-ef90-11e5-8906-f4b7e20324be

Uninstall the following Windows Updates, which are blocking the software. I will update this list as I discover more.

I hate to not be able to install all relevant security updates, but what am I supposed to do? I know I don't rely on my video editing software to make a living, but I do still want to use it from time to time. I've considered installing a second version of Windows (and not updating it) as an alternate boot option and using that for when I want to edit videos, but that's obnoxious. And besides, I shouldn't have to!

Apropos of nothing, I love your user icon. It's so you.

Thank you! ^_^ I just had Sapphire redesigned to match the Florida Scrub Jay, so gone are the stripes and gold feathers/hair, and here's the new design. Scullyraptor did the image I used for the userpic.
