It’s possible that you are still on SP1 or SP2. Here’s how you check. Here is how to upgrade to SP3.

Where does Ezvid put my project files?

Ezvid has been designed for eventual usage on tablet, mobile, and browser devices, therefore it isn’t designed to allow users direct access to media files through the Windows filesystem. However, if you want to poke around, if you have Ezvid version 0.8 or later, look in username/My Documents/ezvid/projects – these are your project files. Important note: Messing around with these project folders is likely to corrupt your ezvid installation — so we don’t recommend that you do it. Note: If you are using any Ezvid version 0.6 or 0.7, then your projects are in %localappdata%ezvidprojects instead.
