    "Does nothing in Windows 7 x64"

    May 24, 2013  |   By Alan Mintaka


    None on Windows 7 x64 platforms


    Tried a number of conversions of different video formats on two Windows 7 Home Premium x64 platforms. Most conversions returned the message "Queue Completed" but produced no output. The few conversions that did produce output created corrupt files that could not be read by a number of applications, including Sony Vegas Pro 12 x64, MediaInfo, and - you guessed it - Handbrake. The program couldn't even read its own output. A total waste of time for Windows 7 x64 platforms.

    Alan - Try the program again. Only this time, right click on the program icon and choose "Run As Administrator." It could be attempting to save the file to a directory only an administrator can access. I use Windows 7 x64 Home Premium and have encountered these "saved but not saved" situations with other software ... until I opened the software as an administrator.

    Common sense should tell anyone that a program that thousands of people use and love would not have an issue working on one of the most abundantly used OS versions. I've done thousands of conversions of this with Win 7 x64 and never had a single issue with it.

    I also use Handbrake on Windows 7 Ultimate x64.But I haven't faced such issues like you ever.Even yesterday I added almost 80 files on queue which were of different formats (.flv .mp4 .mov.All conversions were done with no error.The outputs were good too.I think something is wrong with your system.
