I  started getting problems with Snagit 2019 over the past 3 days. It would not start the screen capture and would have an error message 18 or unable to start. I  just paid to upgrade to
Snagit 2020 .

Should I uninstall Snagit 2019?
If I do that- what happens to the media that I captured previously that 
is still in the Snagit 2019 library

Now I am getting several error messages.
when I try to start a capture with Snagit 2020- I get the message that Snagit 2019 is still running. I have gone to Task Manager and Snagit is not running.

When I checked and followed these support steps- I am not seeing
AllowMfAudioCapture file at all

Option 2: Change Audio Recording Method
  1. Exit Snagit and the Snagit Editor. Confirm that they are not running in Task Manager.
  2. Press Windows+R on your keyboard to open the Run window.
  3. Type the following and click OK: regedit
  4. Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\Features\snagit.
  5. Click the snagit folder.
  6. Right-click the AllowMfAudioCapture item on the right and select Modify.
  7. Change the Value data field from 1 to 0, and click OK.
  8. Close the Registry Editor, and open Snagit, and try a new recording.

If the problem continues, please follow the steps in this support article.

    Thanks for the feedback

    If you uninstall SnagIt 2019, you will be given an option during the uninstall operation.
    You will want to keep you're files.

    I don't know why 2020 thinks its running? If it is no longer installed, I've  got to believe it won't be any longer {:>)
    I'm no tech guy, but I'm going with that.
