The following recently worked for me after I had to reinstall Windows 10.

  • Go to Apps and Features
  • Click on Programs and Features (top RH corner under the Related Settings heading
  • In the window that opens, select 'Turn Windows features on or off' (top LH corner)
  • In the window that opens, the first checkbox should be '.NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)'
  • Click on the twistee for the above entry and check both checkboxes for the 2 sub-entries
  • Windows should then ask if you want to install .NET Framework. After it installs, the computer will need to be restarted.

That enabled DVD Architect Pro 6 to work.

Thank you so much for your help Dexcon. I followed your instructions and have successfully installed DVD Architect Studio V5.0 Build 197 on Windows 10 Pro.

I am a bit confused. There is a DVDA v5.0 build 197, and i have a DVDa v7.0 build 100. Is there any difference? Should I be looking for a build 197 for v7.0 too? Thanks?
