Shotcut Software Program

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Does anyone here use this program with Windows XP? File Hippo and some other sites say ... Windows - All Versions ... but I have tried the portable versions and am not able to have it work. Also tried installing it, doesn't install.

I get this message and can go no further ... seems like it might relate to Windows 7 ...

Shotcut v18.08.14
The procedure entry point GetActiveProcessorCount could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll.

Is this something related to WinXP? Found an older version from 2015 but the link doesn't work. Anybody have this program on their computer?

Ah so it is actually SHOTcut and not Shortcut. I bet google gives you a hard time searching for that too.

Yes, GetActiveProcessorCount would be a valid function in Windows 7 and newer version of kernel32.dll.

32bit Windows version seems to have started with v16.10 :unsure:

The software maker seems to have never supported it on XP, but there may be some version that can work:

Yes, I was also calling it 'Shortcut' when I labelled some download folders, even before I posted the first time I did a check and had to do a correction.

I had found the same information as you posted about ... that it seemed never to really work on XP, but I thought someone may have found a version to actually work.

When some web sites say in 2018 ... 'Windows - All Versions' ... they really don't mean XP anymore. The terminology still fools me into wasting time to try a program out.

I have a movie recorded from TV and I wanted to take out the commercials without having to encode it again. I have already encoded it to .avi, so I don't need to do that again just to do 'time settings' to remove commercials. I read with Shotcut you can do this but I can't find the information that I found last week.

The program looks a bit complicated in 'learning' mode and for just removing commercials for one movie, probably not worth the time to do it ... but I was interested in experimenting. A couple of reviews ... might be a useful progam to someone with a newer computer.

Shotcut review

A free, open source video editor that makes movie making straightforward

Shotcut review: This open-source video editor is impressive

Its documentation is spotty, so don't expect any hand-holding.
