If you have landed on this page, then you probably know by know that Fvideoi.exe is a type of .exe file associated with software developed by Photodex Corporation for those running on Windows. And a big number of Windows users, irrespective of the version that they’re running, have reported that they can’t run the executable correctly, getting especially “has stopped working” errors:
I have a slideshow with a motion (video) background. Everytime I try to load that show to work on it, I get the following error: “fvideoi.exe has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. WIndows will close the program and notify you if a solution is availale.”I click Close Program, and will usually get that error pop up dialog a couple more times. Then it stops, and all appears to work just fine. Any ideas? I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled PSP, to no avail.
And here’s another message:
I just updated producer to 4.5.2929. I am now receiving an error message of fvideoi.exe not working. I found an earlier post that suggested to uncheck the video import box under preferences. That has not worked. Any other suggestions?
Potential solutions for Fvideoi.exe problems in Windows
- Allow fvideoi.exe everywhere you see it blocked, be it on your antivirus, spyware or firewall. It should be marked as “ask for permission”, so make sure you let it work.
- Disable one of the video importing options by following this path: edit>preferences>playback and then uncheck the option for “Video Importing”.
- Go the the folder where you have installed the program and then find and delete these two files – proshow.phd and proshow.cfg
- The following is a fix suggested by a Photodex representative:
When you attempt to import your video, a window should appear either giving you the option to send or don’t send a report or to cancel, depending on the version of Windows you have. If you have XP just repeatedly hit “don’t send” over and over again until the video imports. For Vista or Windows 7, hit cancel repeatedly until the video imports.
Also, last, but not least, make sure you’re running the latest version from your software maker Photodex and if you’re running a legit software, call them for support if nothing works out.
