PSP 9 won't work in Windows Vista

I prefer PSP to all the other versions. I installed it on my pc - which is Windows Vista - (Dell XPS 420) and it just stops working. No explanation as to why. The thing I can't understand is that I was able to install Version 8 and Studio - so why is PSP 9 giving me problems?

I had it on Windows XP Professional and it worked fine - then I started to get this same message. At first I thought my own copy was corrupt or something, but I obtained another copy of Paint Shop Pro 9, installed it and I'm getting the same error message - PSP has stopped working. That's it - the total message. Any ideas?

Thanks!

The application preferences file is damaged. Please remove it and re-launch QuarkExpress [297] Where is the preferences file located? (Version 9, Windows 7)


The preferences file will be in the User\AppData folder.
C:\Users\ your user name\AppData\ Local\Quark\QuarkXPress 7 is the location in Vista with version 7 and it should have a similar location in Windows 7.

C:\Users\ your user name\AppData\ Local\Quark\QuarkXPress 9 is likely. (AppData has 3 folders - Local, Local Low and Roaming.)

You should not delete the folder. Instead rename it. Right click on the folder and select Rename. Then name it
old_QuarkXPress 9.

This could be a hidden file. If you click Start and then enter Show hidden folders. Then put the bullet on Show hidden files, folders and drives. Then click Apply and OK.

If moving the AppData location to another folder doesn't solve the problem, check if there is a Preferences file in the Program Files folder (
C:\ Program Files\ Quark\ QuarkXPress 7.x for the old version.) If the new version is built for the 64-bit OS, it might be in the x64 Program File folder. Again rename the file if it is in that directory.

I hope this helps.

When i last install Adobe Photoshop its ok... but after i reformat and try to install its ok also... but when i run... IT says Direct3d not supported... on the last reformat the directX is working fine...


It's important to let me know the operating system installed on the system with the system configuration. I will be glad if you can at least reply my post with those info.
I guess you are running windows Xp with the chipset which doesn't support Direct X 10 or newer version. Or in other words, windows vista or windows 7 with incompatible chipset for directX newer version.

First uninstall the currently installed DirectX and reinstall Direct X 9. You have to uninstall the currently installed direct x properly, and it's also important to clean the registry after it's uninstalled. After it's removed, restart your computer and reinstall Direct X 9. That'll definitely fix your problem.

If you need my further help, let me know with the details i've mentioned above so that I can help you better and with easiest instrucitons/methods.


Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

3ds max autodesk is not opening in windows7 ultimate


some software my not be directly open in windows 7 yet, (like if u c, when u install AutoCad 2006 on Vista Ultimate u can't open it directly, 1st u have to right click on it then Run as Administrator, then it will be open and work) like this prob, i sure that u have to right click on the icon of ur software then run it as Administrator, i think it will open. and your problem will solve..
otherwise your version of 3DS Max is not compatible with Windows 7 and you have to install different version of Windows (Like Xp).
good luck.

Previous versions of Roxio or Sonic branded software that are not listed below as Vista compatible may run into compatibility issues. The following Roxio applications that work with Windows Vista are:

Easy Media Creator 9 and above
WinOnCD 9 and above
Easy CD & DVD Burning ("Vista Compatible" labeled boxes only) 
RecordNow 9 and above
MyDVD 9 and above

You will have to upgrade the software to an vista compatible version:

Paint Shop Pro 9 Printer Selection (no options available)


There is a workaround which will be suitable for those who use Print Layout in PSP instead of just Print.
With your image open in PSP, goto >File >Print Layout.
Now in the Print Layout screen, goto >File >Print Setup (or just click the Printer / Page Setup Icon).
The Print Setup window will now appear with just your default printer displayed. There should be a Print Setup button next to the Properties button, but it never appears in Vista. You can, however, still access it.
Just press 'Alt-P' and the small print setup dialog box appears, allowing you to choose a different printer!!! happy.gif

Pinnacle studio v 9 not compatible with windows vista?


Only version 10 (and higher) is supported for Windows Vista.

They have pretty good deal going on for upgrades. I think you can upgrade to version 11 for $58.00

Roxio 9


If you CAN, right click on the install utility icon and select 'Run in XP', then it should install.
If not then...
Roxio 9 is pre-Vista and out date for your computer, and can not run on Vista.
You should bite the bullet and install Roxio's newest version.
Easy Media Creator 10 Suite.
I believe you can still get it at a discount as a current Roxio owner.
