Cannot install Adobe PageMaker 6.5 on Vista

When I try to install PM6.5 on my new Vista computer it stops at 36%.
Message says: This Program does not have a file associated with it for perforimng this action. Create an association in the Set Association control panel.
Trouble is, I can not find this option and wouldn't know what to associate it with, anyway.

    Am I sure it's compatible? No, The upgraded version of PageMaker 7 is compatible, but I can't transfer any of my files and the newer versions doesn't have all the features I liked about 6.5.

    I can not rate because I did not receive a solution to the problem...only a question to be more elaborate. I did not receive any further info.

    I've used .P65 for years and have grown comfortable with it. While I am disappointed to learn that Adobe will not support or upgrade the product for Vista, at least I'll know what Adobe thinks of its customers when I select a replacement product.

    Are you sure that the adoby program that you are attempting to install is compatable with VISTA?

Find the setup.exe in the PM folder on the CD, right click and "Run As Administrator"

    YOU ARE A GENIUS Mr. Soapsud !!!!!. I have successfully installed PageMaker 6.5 on windows VISTA. I did exactly as you suggested with the right click --only thing though--inside my PageMaker CD folder I did not see "setup.exe" but I did see "Setup". Actually there are several "Setup" listed. So I right clicked on each until I saw "Run As Administrator. For those reading this WONDERFUL solution, you might need to right click on each of the "Setup" listed before you see "Run As Administrator" But keep trying.

    I was so frustrated with this VISTA mess, and so glad now that I didn't give up.

  • MrSoapsud Sep 09, 2011

    You're welcome. You're seeing several setup files because Windows is hiding the extensions. It does this thinking it's being helpful but all it does is help viruses etc. If you can find "Folder Options" in explorer or the control panel and untick the box that says "Hide extensions for known file types" you'll be able to see that programs are .exes, word documents are .doc or .docx etc. Sometimes viruses etc have .doc.exe at the end so you think it's a document when actually it's a program.

I went to the ADOBY website for 7 and several others for 6.5 and can find nowhere that states that they support the VISTA windows system. It is an incopatable program for 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.

Hi. You'll be better off downloading and installing the tryout for Adobe Indesign than PageMaker. InDesign is the improved version of PageMaker and it can open your old PM7 files. With your current PC specs, you can definitely run that software.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 Editor "stops working"


Even though this says Elements 6, it still works for 7. The only difference is the TWAIN file is at: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 7.0\Locales\en_US\Plug-Ins\Import-Export

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
