I've had my computer upgraded and want to reload my Corel Gallery Magic and although everything seems to download perfectly, after restarting my computer I cannot access it at all. I've had it a long time and don't know if it's too old but it worked well on Windows XP before.

I'm afraid you're out of luck. I was in the same boat, wanting to install the Magic Box on another computer ... but the company is out of business, and you need an access code when installing the software. You may know this by now, since it looks like you posted the question a couple months ago. However, I found out there is a way to upgrade your 330 so you will not need the Magic Box! If you are interested in the information, I'm happy to share. I don't know how this forum works, whether you can contact me back to ask for details?? I see 2 other posts with the same type of question, so I'm posting the same response on all 3.
The reason is that a 64 bit machine will have to have a 64 bit operating system and 64 bit programs running on it. Windows 95 and all programs written for it were 32 bit. Hence they will not run on a 64 bit Win7. Therefore the Windows 95 program is of no use to you. However is you find a machine with Windows Vista 32 bits or XP, then it will run no doubts.
Start "Help" within Vista.
Search for "Compatibility Wizard".
Launch this wizard.
Tell it that you have a "Windows XP" application that you want to install.
Point the wizard to the CD-ROM containing the software.
Install the software.
Now, when the software runs, Vista will create a "virtual XP" system, that will run the XP-only software.
Assuming it installed correctly from the disk/s...You can go to the directory where the program resides, usually c:/program files/ <program name>
Find the program directory and look for the main program executable or startup program. Right click on it and select the tab for compatibility, then check the box for run this program to run in compatibility mode for windows xp sp2. That may work for you.
Try this first, Take a magnifying glass and when you turn the cd over look at the numbers on the inner ring just before the written area. Corel has a habit of putting the key code there with the bar code. An older version Corel WP Office 2000 starts with 154907001
I noticed this trait several years ago when buying motherboards with bundled software.
