Why doesn’t Boilsoft Video Splitter work with Windows 7?

Osama Javaid February 29, 2012

I used to cut specific scenes from .AVI files using Boilsoft Video Splitter and Joiner in Windows XP because I don’t have to re-encode video when I use it

I’ve now installed Windows 7, and when I try to install this software, I receive the following error: “http://flic.kr/p/bz8uKe”

Please help, I really need to use this software.

    Hello, you could try reinstalling the application.  Make sure to run the .exe file with  the run as administrator.  Also you could try compatibility mode

    Try format factory http://format-factory.en.softonic.com/download
    or any video converter.

    If you just want to join and split videos (both are freeware).

    you can also Reinsall boilsoft or use Windows live movie maker.

        You can maintain the same quality and codec with format factory.
        and I told you to reinstall the software.

    Have you tried updating to the "latest" version 6?

    Other then that you can only try to run it in compatibility mode. Right-click the shortcut and select properties, navigate to compatibility and try the various options.
