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 ... 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.
