Micrografx Picture Publisher 8 not working with my Vista
I solved it!
The software installs OK.
After installation, reboot.
When you need to open the program, right-click on the Micrografx icon and select Run as Administrator. A yellow window pops up saying "An unidentified program want access to your computer," with pp80.exe as "Unidentified program" - that is actually Micrografx Pictures. Click "Allow." The program runs normally. The only caviat is that you will have to perform this routine every time you have to run Micrografx Pictures. But again, it takes 5 seconds to do it, and I love the program, having used it for over 10 years. Photoshop is far more advanced but it takes time to master it, and I do with Micrografx the same quality work as many with Photoshop.
Of course, Janet, you and I have to come to grips with the fact that Micrografx is pretty much dead, and Photoshop is alive and blooming. Maybe this Vista incident is a sign for us to learn Photoshop?
