Question about Micrografx Webtricity 2.0 Full Version for PC
Posted by janetdolls on Apr 18, 2009I have the same exact problem. This is the third machine I've loaded this program on. All the other programs in this suite work fine. However, when PP8 starts up, it stops and gives me this error message about my scanner then before I can finish reading the message so I can figure out how to try to fix it, the message goes away and so does the PP8 screen behind it. The only thing that will be left is the product logo in the center of my screen. I'm left to use Task Manager to get out of it completely.
Here are my system specs:
Dell Inspiron 530
Windows Vista Basic
HP Deskjet F4240 All-In-One
This is a brand new setup. To me, it doesn't make any sense that the other programs will work in the suite and this one doesn't.
Please let me know where I can find a fix. I use this program an awful lot and not having this one to work seriously craps my web development capabilities.
Thanks in advance.
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?

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and I tried to install Picture Publisher 10 - at first with no luck (crashed upon opening) then I fixed it!! I had already installed both patches (the reg fix and the other, search online for them) then rebooted - and the "run as admin" didn't work, so I typed into the START/Search all programs and files box "compatibility" and the only thing on the list is "Run programs made for previous versions of windows". I know someone mentioned this for Vista but the path to it is not the same in Win 7 64 bit. Anyway, I followed those instructions, picked off the list Picture Publisher, let it do it's thing (run like XP etc) and it started fine!!! I am so happy! I cannot used that Photoshop junk, it is SO not intuitive. I have used PP since 1996 and have created thousands upon thousand of pictures for many web sites and of course my own work as a Photographer and it is still simply the best! Good luck!! So happy we are still bringing it along with us!!!!!

I have used micrografx for years and have both versions 8 and 10 working in windows 7.
If U are running Vista with Aero then U have to turn it off as the screen will not display inside Micrografx and it will clear the areas U touch.
I didnt need as others have suggested to run the compatabilty mode.
There is the odd crash when saving to a jpeg which I havent found a fix for yet other then rebooting the computer if it occurs and trying again. ( this generally works)
Micrografx is the only program that I have found that allows U to cutout an object because the lasso in all the other picture programs doesnt allow for backspacing of an error.
I wouldnt be runnig Win 7 if I couldnt run Micrografx is one of my must have programs because of ease of use and ability to do so much with the minimum of fuss.
