Please be noted that the Studio8_12_7.exe file is labeled as PATCH update for Pinnacle Studio 8 software. It is recommended that you install this update for all previous versions of Studio 8.

I think this is the latest and last update for Pinnacle Studio version 8. There are no other newer updates listed on Pinnacle website for Studio 8. For your information, Pinnacle Studio is now (as of time of writing) version 12. If you find your Studio software lack some features, maybe it is time to upgrade your Studio 8 software to the latest version 12?
