This may be an issue of a losst file or corrupted file with in the program itself. You might try uninstalling it and then reinstalling it to correct the issue. You may also try the following steps to see if it helps the issue.

clear out your C:\WINDOWS\TEMP directory (this is a storage area where files are stored before they are installed). Delete everything in this file, and your problem may be solved completely.
If this does not work, you may also need to clear out your Internet cache (temporary Internet files):
(Internet Explorer)
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Click on Tools -> Internet Options.
3a. In IE6 - Click on the 'Delete Files...' button on the Genral Tab
3b. In IE7 - Click on the 'Delete' button under the Browsing History section of the General Tab.
(Mozilla Firefox)
1. Open Firefox.
2. Click on Tools -> Options
3. Click on the Advanced tab -> Network Tab.
4. Click on the 'Clear Now' button under the Cache section.

- Empty your recycle bin

- Run Scandisk
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Scandisk
3. Select your hard drive. If you have more than one, you should scan each drive individually.
4. Click Standard
5. Check Automatically fix errors.
6. Click Start

- Run Defrag
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Disk Defragmenter
3. Select the hard drive you wish to defrag and click ok.

- Before attempting to install the game, make sure that you have no programs running in the background or system tray.
(Windows XP / Vista)
Go to the Start menu, (and choose Run if using XP). Delete anything on the Open line that you'll find there, and type in the work MSCONFIG. Click on OK, and that will bring up a program called the System Configuration Utility.
Look down the list of startup items (not the tab labeled Startup), and choose Selective Startup (if it is not already selected). If you don't see this, make sure you've clicked on General, near the top of the window. Once you've chosen Selective Startup, uncheck 'Load Startup Items', and leave 'Process System.INI file' and 'Process Win.INI file' checked. Once you're done here, click OK, and let it reboot your computer.
Your Windows environment may look different and you may get an error relating to your sound device not working (ignore this for now). Try running the game again. If the game loads and seems to be working, the problem is most likely related to one or more programs you have scheduled to load with Windows. You can then revert the settings back the way they were, and in a trial and error fashion, disable some programs using the startup tab (in the msconfig utility) to try to find the culprit.

(Windows 98/ME)
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the close program window. End all open tasks EXCEPT Explorer and systray.

- If you still have problems installing, you may not have the necessary hard disk space to install the game. You will need to clean out unnecessary files on your hard drive or otherwise allocate more space if you wish to install and play.

- Try a safemode install.
1. Copy the contents of the disc to a new folder on your desktop.
2. Restart Windows in Safe Mode.
3. Run setup.exe from the setup folder in the new folder you created on your desktop.
4. Restart the computer in normal mode and try the game.

- If all else fails, your game disk may be scratched or damaged.
1. Inspect the underside of the CD closely.
2. If their are any smudge marks, dirt, or scratches, clean the disk.
NOTE: When cleaning CDs, wipe from the center of the disc to the edge using a soft, lint-free cotton cloth. Do not use a circular motion. Also, do not use paper cloth which can scratch the plastic and leave streaks.
3. Insert the CD and try installing again.
NOTE: Many common install problems are caused by scratched or damaged disks. If you think your game disk is damaged and needs to be replaced, please contact a Support Representative (Ask a Question tab above) to obtain replacement information as well as an RMA number.

I hope this answers your question.
Thank you for visiting FixYa for your solutions.

Photo explosion 5 it crashes before opening at launch stage I've windows 10


I have checked the specifications of it and it is not designed for Windows 10.
It could be a driver problem that has not been fixed, or something else.
You could post a question on Microsoft, asking "will Photo explosion 5 operate under Windows 10" and see if you get any responses.

Also try a Google search with that question first.

My program photo explosion deluxe version 3 will not opened when downloaded to my new computer that operates windows 7. what should I do to get this program workining, I do not like version 4 of photo...


Hi!
What I understand is that your photo explosion deluxe is a windows xp software. Since it is not working readily out of the box in windows 7 then what you could do is install windows xp mode for windows 7. Windows xp mode allows xp software to be installed and windows 7. What you need to do is just download windows xp mode and install it. After which you could then install that software on there. Just make sure to uninstall your current installation of photo explosion deluxe before you do this.
Here is the link to the download for windows xp mode: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx
And Here is the link to some of their videos on how to use xp mode so that you could understand further how to set it up: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/support/default.aspx

I have Photo explosin 3 on my computer it will not work correctley I have windows 7. It keeps freezing or not opening,


Hello!

I'm Richard from SoftCity Cafe, the new home of Photo Explosion's tech support. I spoke with the tech support reps about PE 3 and its compatability with Windows 7. Unfortunately, only some aspects of the program work in Windows 7 and the recommended solution is to upgrade to version 4. I can tell you that there has been a request of the PE development team to release a patch for Windows 7 compatability, and if this is something you are interested in I would recommend leaving a message in this thread on SoftCity:
http://cafe.softcity.com/questions-answers/view/1cDMxMzN/please-help-photo-explosion-deluxe-version-3-is-much-better-than-version-4

Hopefully this will help you and users like you.

Cheers,

Richard

Installing Photo Explosion Deluxe


Did you look in C:\Program Files\Common Files folder?
Some programs will place shared files in here.

If that does not work, download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility from:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

Install it, then run it from Programs. If you see either of these programs have the utility remove it.

Error msg 1335


Please try this. It worked for me. If you are on Windows XP, this can normally be resolved by setting the compatibility mode for Photo Explosion to Windows 98. You can do this by following these steps:

1) Click on the Start button.
2) Click on the My Computer. This should open a window titled My Computer.
3) Double-click on the C: drive.
4) If the information is hidden, there is normally an option to show the hidden files/folders. You will need to select this option.
5) Double-click on the Program Files folder.
6) If the information is hidden, there is normally an option to show the hidden files/folders. You will need to select this option.
7) Double-click on the Nova Development folder.
8) Double-click on the Photo Explosion folder.
9) Right-click on IPE40 icon, which looks like a camera.
10) Select the Properties option from the bottom of the pop-up menu.
11) Click on the Compatibility tab.
12) Put a check in the check-box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for".
13) From the drop-down list, chose "Windows 98 / Windows Me".
14) Click on the OK button.
15) Reboot your computer.
