Pagemaker 6.5 is designed to be used with Windows 95 / 98 / NT 4, therefore in order to run it in Vista I'd suggest to run your Pagemaker 6.5 using Compatinity Mode --> Go to your Desktop --> Right click on the program icon--> properties-->Compatibility--> select one of the versions above

Pagemaker 6.5 loads fine onto my new Toshiba laptop with Vista.

I also loaded PM7, which did open, but then closed and didn't save. I didn't do any of the compatibility fixes with Vista.

I see in Wikipedia that Adobe states PM6.5 works with Vista.

I have Adobe Pagemaker 6.5 and just got Windows 7, and it will not install the program. It is saying an additional file must be available before it can install. This is not Pagemaker Plus... How do I...


I'm afraid you have a problem. Windows 6.5 doesn't run well on Windows XP, and PageMaker 7.0 can't be installed on Windows Vista at all and there is no patch for it, so most likely, your PageMaker 6.5 won't run on Windows 7. Sorry. :(

I'll research a little more and post if I find anything different, but I'm pretty confident that it won't run.

Pagemaker spell checking problem


Pagemaker 7 will not readily allow Spell checking under Windows 7. To do this you will need to run the Pagemaker application as the Administrator. This can either be by clicking on the right hand mouse botton (right handed persons) while the cursor is on the Pagemaker launch icon either on the desktop, Windows Start up menu or Application Program launch menu and then choosing to run the Application as Administrator. Pagemake launched like this will normally allow spell checking, without  the Pagemaker application will return distionary missing or does not support spelling.
Disabling account control in Windows 7 before running the Pagemaker, which I do not recommend also achieves this in Windows 7. All the above applies for Windows Vista too!

Solution for adobe pagemaker 7.0 spell checking problem


For those running Windows Vista, you can enable spell checking in Pagemaker 7 by simply turning off the user account control. This control is what pops up every time you attempt to run a program windows Vista isn't familiar with, asking if you really want to run it.

To turn it off, go to Control Panal, select user accounts and forms, select User Account Control, and in the follow up screen delete the checkmark.

Of course, the account control is there to protect you against unauthorized running of spyware and such. Be sure you have good virus protection!
