    Having the same problem.

    Clicking anywhere in the window does nothing, I have to close it with Task Manager.

    What version of GS is everyone using to have these problems? Didn't they release a new version June 15th or around then that fixed many of these problems?

    Try uninstalling and reinstalling as admin. Part of the install package isn't being added. It goes without saying that that you may have issues on XP or lower...

    Hi Dan, I had the same problem but discovered this is what happens. When you launch the .exe file it appears that an identical .exe file launches at the same time.
    Another .exe files does launch but it is for the matroksa splitter.
    It is very confusing and a badly programmed install package, however just say yes and agree to everything and the software should install.

    I solved it and i can run on Windows 8, steps to use:
    0)Execute the gamesalad installer as administrator, and say ok to all, it doesnt install but it create a important folder that you need to repare in next step
    1)Download MatroskaSplitter.exe manually from the oficial web page
    2)Enter on you appdata folder clicking "Windows+R" and writting "appdata"
    3)Enter to Roaming->Gamesalad->Gamesalad Creator->prerequisites-> and reemplace the matroskasplitter.exe by your downloaded MatroskSplitter.exe
    4)Execute another time the gamesalad installer as ADMINISTRATOR
    5) Comment if it works!!

    Same problem...Why does it require a media splitter if most people won't be putting AVI's etc in their programs? It should start complaining only when you go to import this stuff.

    linkstudio's solution doesn't work because there is no Gamesalad folder in Roaming.

    Please fix your installer.

    I am having the same problem. Can anyone help, please? I have tried downloading matroska splitter directly from Haali. In fact, the Gamesalad installer tells me that a new version of matroska is already installed but fails to install itself. I get a message "matroska splitter mandatory prerequisite was not correctly installed". It is quite frustrating. Any help will be much appreciated.

    Hello LinkStudio - I have read and tried to follow your steps but the fact is that GS doesn't create any folder; it stops installation after giving "matroska splitter mandatory prerequisite was not correctly installed" message. Therefore, I can't possibly change appdata.
