I assume you have upgraded to Windows 7 or 8. You could try two things - firstly, make sure that the user installing the software has full admin rights. Second, there is an option to tell Windows to run the software in compatibility mode. That works with most software, but for very old ones, the option may well be to contact the publisher and see if they can help. Good luck.

Cannot install MGI PhotoSuite4 on a computer running Windows 7 OS


The PhotoSuite 4 program is very old and won't work under Windows 7. http://sonic.net/mnitepub/pccafe/reviews/photosuite4/photosuite4.html says that the version 4 Platinum edition ran under Win95-Win2000 versions of the Windows OS. Thus even the compatibility mode probably won't help under Windows 7 32-bit. You can try it though by right clicking on the installer and then selecting Properties. In the Compatibility Mode tab, select Always Run this program in the compatibility mode and an older version of Windows. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator. (You may have to do this again on the program itself.) Since Win7 64-bit requires signed drivers or programs, it is not as likely to work. (Check your version of Windows 7 by clicking Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the title of your OS ends with x64, you have the 64-bit OS. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit OS.)

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate (or upgrade to one of those versions), you can run a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Microsoft's Virtual PC and then XP mode (in order). This works best if your CPU supports virtualization and you enable the feature in your computer's BIOS. (There are work-arounds for computers without virtualization. See the MS support pages.) Install your PhotoSuite inside the virtual XP program in that case.This old software may run in that case. (However, I've had some Win2K software that ran under XP with the compatibility mode but didn't run under the virtual XP. Note: virtual computers do have some additional limitations. They do not talk to the host hard drive and other hardware directly. (You can install a printer on the host machine or the virtual machine but not both.) You'll need to save files on external media (flash drive, optical disc or other hard drive) to transfer them between the machines).

Another option is to run an older version of Windows on another computer, as a dual boot computer or with Virtual PC (or another virtual computer package - VMWare or Parallels). In that case, you need a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Again install the program while running the older OS.

The final option is to upgrade to a Windows 7 compatible Photo editor and organizer. (Even the Microsoft Windows Live Photo Gallery has some of the features of Photosuite SE.)

I hope this helps.

Windows 7 will not recognize my v6upl scanner which worked in Windows XP. Problem seems to be that Device Manager sees it as an Unknown Device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers.


Unfortunately, Microtek doesn't support the V6UPL for any Windows OS beyond XP. The drivers are available here: http://support.microtek.com/downloads/bycategory.phtml?slct_tbl=1&slct_mdl=2 .

What version of Windows 7 are you running? Click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the version name ends with x64, you have the 64-bit version; otherwise you have the 32-bit version.

If you have the 32-bit version, try using the driver from the above site with the compatibility mode. Right click on the .exe file and choose Properties. Then select the compatibility tab. Set the program to always run in the compatibility mode for XP. Then right click again and choose Run as administrator. (You may need to disconnect the data cable and uninstall the Unknown device before trying to install the XP driver).

This will probably not work for Win7 x64. There are workarounds that you can use. You need to connect the scanner to a computer running an older version of Windows. This can be a physical second computer, a dual boot computer or a computer running a virtual version of the older OS. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, or upgrade to one of those versions, you can have a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode (in order) from Microsoft. Then install the XP scanner driver in the XP mode program as if that is the only computer running. The only issue is that you can't share files or your printer between the virtual and real computer at the same time. You will be prompted to uninstall the printer if you try to install it on both machines. You can put files on external media to share them. Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare. However, you need a licensed version of the older Windows OS to use any of the other alternatives.

I hope this helps.

I have a ce-100 futura sewing machine that will not work with windows 7 what do i need to do to fix this problem


The Futura software and the machine drivers exist for Windows 98, NT, 2000, ME, or XP. If you have Win7 32-bit, you may be able to run in the compatibility mode. Load the CD into the optical drive, then right click on the .exe file on the CD. Then choose Properties. Select the Compatibility tab and check Run this program in the compatibility mode. Click Apply and OK. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator. This isn't guaranteed to work since the changes in the OS are significant.

To check if you have Win7 32-bit or the 64-bit version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. The title will say Windows 7 (Version) for a 32-bit OS. It will read Windows 7 (Version) x64 for the 64-bit version of the OS.

If you have the 64-bit OS or the compatibility mode doesn't work, you need a computer running an older version of Windows. This can be a second computer, a dual-boot computer (where you select your OS at startup) or a virtual computer (that runs inside the real computer). If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of those versions, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from the above site in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

I hope this helps.

My Art Explosion Greeting Card Deluxe Factory 2 software will not work on my Toshiba Satellite A200 laptop. I am using Windows Vista. Please can you advise?


Unfortunately the Windows OS has changed significantly since that software was released. Nova Developement now has the Greeting Card Factory Deluxe version 8 for XP/Vista/7.

If you have the 64-bit Vista, you may not be able to get the old software to work and need the upgrade or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS (see below). To check your OS version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System .

You can try running the program in the compatibility mode - this will work best with software for XP not Win95-NT. Right click on the installer and select Properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and choose Run this program as compatible with (an older version of Windows). Click on the check box and use the drop-down menu to select the older OS. Save the change by clicking apply then close the window. Right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

If the program installs, do the same compatibility steps for the program's exe file itself. (You don't need to run as administrator though.)

Alternatively, you can run a dual boot or virtual computer with an older Windows OS. (Programs like Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare let you run a virtual computer inside the Vista system with a computer that can handle virtualization.) Unfortunately, you usually need a licensed version of Windows to do this. (Win7 Pro and Ultimate let you do this free with Virtual PC and XP mode.) Then install the software normally in the virtual computer or when booted into the older version of Windows. File transfer can be tricky with the virtual computer - you need to save files to external media (flash drive or optical disc). Printers can't be installed on both the real and virtual computer at the same time.

I hope this helps.

Magix studio 12 deluxe will not install on my windows 7 OS is there a patch or am i out luck


If a program cannot be run under Windows 7 because of compatibility issues, which is the case with Magix Music Studio 12 Deluxe, you have to right click on the executable file that will install the application and click Properties. Select Compatibility tab and check the Windows version you know the program worked with before (probably Windows XP).

You will have to do the same thing for the application start program after installation.

You can find more about this Compatibility issue on Microsoft website: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows

I have a finnish version of Eyewitness encyclopedia of space and the universe, it worked years ago on our old computer but now I can't get it working on our new one.. the installation will not complete,...


What OS does your new computer have? What was your old OS? Unfortunately, install codes do change with OS versions and a program for a much older program will not run on a new OS (esp for Microsoft products). This program (in its English Windows version) was coded to run under Win95-WinXP; it probably can't run under Win7. You can try installing in the compatibility mode (for Windows - right click on the installer and select properties and the compatibility tab). However, this doesn't always work. It isn't a program listed in the Windows Compatibility Center for Vista or Win7 (although the Vista version is confused with its search results - 47 items found becomes 11).

Another option is to install an OS that will run the program as inside a Virtual PC program or as a dual-boot option. (Win7 Pro and Ultimate allows you to install XP mode free (a virtual XP computer after you download and install two programs from Microsoft).) Otherwise you will need a valid licensed copy of the OS you need.

I wish that I could be of more help.
