Installing and using EDIUS 7 and EDIUS 8 on the same PC

(same C drive)

 

1. In case you are currently using EDIUS 7, uninstall it and choose deactivate later

 

2. Install the latest version of EDIUS 8

 

3. Use Windows Explorer and go to Windows/system32

 

4. Sort by date so all recent files are at top

 

5. copy all recent files with current date starting with C and G (these are the codec dll files used by EDIUS 8)

 

EDIUS8 codecs

 

6. Copy them to a folder somewhere safe.

 

7. Install EDIUS 7 latest version and reboot.

 

8. Copy the saved dll files and paste them back to the system 32 folder in order to replace the EDIUS 7 codec dll files with the EDIUS 8 dll files

 

EDIUS 7 will work perfect with the EDIUS 8 codecs, however if this is not done, EDIUS 8 will crash under several circumstances because it does not like the EDIUS 7 dll files.
