Known issues for Mac OS 10.6 and Windows 7

NOTE Mac OS 10.6 and Windows 7 is not supported with Expression Media (See system requirements http://www.phaseone.com/en/Search/Artic ... nguageid=1)
This post is to simply present some of the known issues with Mac OS 10.6 and Windows 7
If you have upgraded your operating system we also recommend that you upgrade Expression Media to Media PRO


Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)

*

Nikon NEF RAW images do not render when the RAW importer is set to manufacturer in Expression Media 2. The images appear as generic icons in Thumbnail view and display a render error in Media view. To workaround this issue, set the “Preferred Engine” to Apple (Expression Media 2 > Preferences > Media Rendering > RAW tab).
*

Microsoft Expression Media 2 Import via Control-Click is missing. In Leopard, when performing a control-click on an image, there was an option called “Microsoft Expression Media 2 Import”. This option does not exist in Snow Leopard.
*

Expression Media 2 doesn’t render HTML files properly in a catalog on Snow Leopard. It does still work in Leopard. I have confirmed this and am providing sample screenshots below. This issue occurs in Thumbnail View and Media View.


Windows 7


*

Expression Media 2 crashes when navigating folders in the "Open” dialog. This problem appears to only affect the 32-bit version of Windows 7. There is a workaround. Go into the properties of the Microsoft Expression 2 shortcut that you use to open Expression Media 2. On the “Compatibility” tab, check the box next to “Disable visual themes” and click OK.
*

Export Slide Show to Movie Maker in Expression Media 2 doesn’t launch Movie Maker. When using this feature, it will prompt for a file location and create an XML file. Movie Maker can be added to Windows 7 from Windows Live Essentials but it will not open automatically from Expression Media 2.
