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. 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.

Many times the older version drivers will work as new released operating systems try to be backwards compatible with software. Try loading the XP software or search the Canon website for updated software for your model.

Your new camera driver is simply not compatible with the 64 bit version of windows. Get a camera that is specifically designed with a driver for Win 7 64 bit version.

Windows 7 will not recognise vdr-m70 dvd camcorder

Panasonic supplied software for the VDR-M70 for Windows 98 through XP on the CD. Due to changes in the OS over time, the installer can't run under Windows 7. Panasonic has not updated the drivers for Windows 7 and Microsoft indicates that it is not compatible with any version of Windows 7.

There are work-arounds depending on your version of Windows 7. If you have the 32-bit OS, try using the compatibility mode. To find out which version of Win7 that you have, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the name of the OS ends with x64, then you have the 64-bit version of the software. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.

For the compatibility mode, right click on the installer on the CD (browse Computer). Choose Properties and then click on the Compatibility tab. Select Always Run this program as and an older version of Windows (XP). Apply and Save your changes. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

This may not work (and won't work for the 64-bit Windows 7). If it doesn't work, you need a machine with an older version of Windows. This can be a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer (if your hardware supports virtual computing). For most options, you will need a licensed copy of the older version of Windows.

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of them, you can have a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft in order. Then install the software for the camcorder in XP mode as if it were your only computer. (Of course this doesn't help if your hardware doesn't support the Virtual PC.) Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels.

Note: you can not directly share files or hardware between the Win7 and the virtual computer. You have to put files on an external drive (optical, flash drive or other external hardware) to share them.

I hope this helps.

When downloading a printer driver from HP you will need to ensure that you are selecting the correct OS (eg. Windows 7) and the appropriate version (eg. 64 or 32 bit operating system). These drivers are different and using one on the other will not work.
Windows XP drivers also will not work properly in a Windows 7 environment and the majority of Windows XP drivers are 32-Bit.

Anything you try has to be compatible with Windows XP. Whenever Microsoft come out with a new operating system (example Win 10) they suspend support for an older OS. (example Win XP, and Vista) This lets all manufacturers know that their new products and accessories no longer have to be compatible with the older OS, but need to be compatible with the new one. Therefore, your card reader has to be XP compatible as well. Hope this helped.

Message: Lock lens aperture ring at minimum aperture (largest f-number) I think I'm doing this but the message won't go away and the camera won't work.

You must lock the aperture ring to f/22, so the camera can engage the aperture adjustment lever on the lens. Then, you can change the aperture with the command wheel.

When you change the aperture with the command wheel the aperture ring on the lens doesn't move when the camera actually adjusts the lens aperture.

Take the lens off and locate the aperture adjustment lever on the lens mount.

Unfortunately, this won't work with older AF lenses. So if you are using an older lens, the only thing you can do is change the camera setting to M (Manual) to adjust the aperture on the lens yourself.

I need the software to run it.

The manual and driver for supported OS versions are here: . The manuals for all of their cameras are listed first and then the drivers. They are listed in order so the DXG-572V driver is in the third line, third from the right of the driver section.

The driver may not have been updated from the original which for Windows XP/ME/2000/98SE. In Windows Vista 32-bit the driver may work or the correct driver may be in the OS. For Windows 7 32-bit, use the driver built into the OS. (Microsoft's compatibility center provided the information.)

With the 64-bit versions of these newer versions of Windows, the compatibility is unknown. However, the driver from the DXG site will probably not work without the compatibility mode, if it works at all. For compatibility mode, right click on the exe file and choose Properties, select the Compatibility tab and set it to run as Compatible with an older version of Windows. Then right click and Run as Administrator. Otherwise, keep it on a computer with the older OS, use a dual boot with the older OS or a virtual computer with an older version of Windows. With Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can use the XP mode for a free virtual computer. (Download and install Microsoft's Virtual PC and then XP mode; install the camera to the virtual computer.) All other methods will need a licensed version of an older version of Windows. The only issue with the virtual computer is that files can't be shared between the two computers directly. Put them on external or optical media to share them with the real computer.

I hope this helps.

I need a driver for my camera compatible with windows 7,the one i have for windows xp will not work, can i download it from here

There isn't one. it's a cheap basic camera using older technology and there's virtually no after sales support.

All you can do is to try and use the compatibility mode built in to W7. This fools older software into thinking it's running on an older version of Windows.
