dotTech Advice

Taking a quick look at it, I can best describe Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Standard as a semi-enhanced version of Windows Live Movie Maker in the body of old Windows Movie Maker. I say semi-enhanced because of the features it does have (effects, style, photo editing, outputting to many different video formats, etc.) it does better than Windows Live Movie Maker. However, the issue is Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Standard is the limited-features edition; if you want all the features you need to pony up for Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe (US$59.95). The most notable features missing in Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Standard are:

  • The ability to add slide transitions;
  • Modify photo durations;
  • Pan/zoom;
  • And add videos into slideshow.

Honestly with the features that it lacks, I am not sure I would personally use Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Standard over Windows Live Movie Maker if I ever had to make a slideshow out of photos/videos. The lack of transitions, no control over photo durations, and the inability to add videos kills the program for me. However, if you recognize these limitations and want to give Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Standard a try, by all means do so. Since it is free the only things you will waste are (hopefully) time, bandwidth, and electricity.

  • @Goldenbarstewart: That can’t fix it on this PC. The software is good, runs well for most others. Other PCs in this household are Win 7, so that would tell me nothing. Sorry & thanks for your effort, Stewart :)

  • Try installing on another computer and see if the problem persists.

  • After installing, at launch I get an error message saying “Application Fault” & tells me to send 2 files it creates, to support. Plus it also gives me a little tag that says runtime error 203 at 09E961C3. Tried several times. Using XP Pro media center sp 3. I did do the support form & Googled the problem. Any smart techs or Wondershare people out there who can help me? I love Wondershare products, so I’m so sad. This is probably the same problem I’ve had with my other last Wondershare 1 or 2 aps I got, but I just deleted them, since I know fixing it is so time-consuming. THANKS for any help! :)

    @Patrick: That isn’t his email password. That is the password to his Wondershare support account.

    In any case, I didn’t see the comment so thank you for the heads up.

  • Patrick


    I have no advice to give on the problem you’re stuck with. Sorry for that.

    One thing I would advize: DO NOT EVER make your mail-password public! That is, it surely seems like you’re doing this here. Unless you want ptoblems sooner or later, change your password asap.

    I thought that mailadresses and passwords would have been filtered out, either automatically or by Ashraf… (who can’t possibly do this in due time seeing the workload he’s taking on dayly).

    Take care,

    PS: In case you’d have any doubts, I will not “hack” your mailbox myself :-)

  • @FreeBrother: Hi there, please mind that you cannot leave any blank in the series number when register, otherwise it will lead to failure registration. If your problem persists, please send me a message:, thx.

  • Urban

    I followed your description, Asraf and everything worked fine. I am not a Facebook member and I do not want to become one. I got the program and the registration was accepted.

    Good Review. I’m not going to try it.

    @PCbasics: My guess is poor programming. Whoever created that block probably assumed Opera’s market share is so low they don’t have to worry about it. Or, on the other hand, maybe the ad blocker I have installed in Opera is the cause — I didn’t test for that.

  • PCbasics

    Hmmm, I wonder why there isn’t a block in Opera…..
