    I have Vista Home Premium, and just bought a new copy of Photo Explosion 8.6, when I try to run Photo explosion, I get the same error. When I try to run Photo explorer it gets a couple of errors, and it won't display the serial number so I can't even register it to get technical support!!

    THis was a clean error free install, and I did reboot it as suggested in the install.

    Brand new pc with Vista, I loaded Photo Impact Pro 11, but it will not open,

    downloaded patch, talked with Vova tech, it still does not work. Help please.

  • Diuane Apr 13, 2008

    New PC with Vista....Old version of Photo Explosion would not work, so I bought the "new" version that would work with Vista.....Yeah, Right!
    When I open Photo Explosion, I get the error message "Load MPEGVIO driver error." I went to Nova's website and downloaded instructions on how to fix it, They tell me to go to Ulead Photo Express folder and 2X click on 6.0 folder, then right click on pe or pe-ini.......Well I can't find any of those. VERY FRUSTRATING!!!

There is a solution on under technical support.faq; however, the steps it provide are for XP and not VISTA. I called the tech support number and the tech person walked me through the steps to correct on VISTA. It fixed the problem but the program still wouldn't load; then I went to run; did a msconfig and ran a diagnostic start up to turn the start up menu items off; when I clicked the photo explorer it worked so this means there is something in the start up menu preventing it from running. NOw I have to figure out what that is. If anyone can help me with this we may be able to solve this problem. My computer isn't even a week old.

If you are having a problem with Photo Explosion on any version, go to:   <--- File a complaint against them, and it will appear on all "search engines".."Fix Ya" should be "free" but unfortunately there goes the "almighty dollar" again.. :o(

Same error problem. But I have had Photo Explosion 2.0 for a couple years and ran fine. Now,even though it is there in my computer, under program files shows it's not there-so...I can't uninstall it!

I am going to try the patch.

Hello load mpeg driver vio not found


First i have to confirm you MPEG in file format of video clip or movie file, you have to install mpeg player, if try to play in "windows media player" you get no luck. so that one you i suggest to you download the VLC player, this is a multiple player to play the different type of music and video format.

1) Download the VLC player
2) Easy installation in all Windows version.

God Luck

MPEG VIO Driver Error photo explosion special edition 3.0

How to correct a Load MPEG VIO Driver Error in Windows Vista.

If you are experiencing this issue with Windows Vista, please follow these directions:

Note: These steps are only for Windows Vista. If you are experiencing the problem on Windows XP, please see the directions found here: KB Article 1469

1. Uninstall Photo Explosion 3.0.
2. Reinstall Photo Explosion 3.0.
3. Restart the computer.
4. Download the Vista update for Photo Explosion 3.0 from the following link:

Note: Please make sure you download the correct one for your version of Photo Explosion 3.0. If you have the Deluxe version, download the Deluxe update. If you have the regular version, download the non-Deluxe update.
5. Save the update to an easily accessible location, such as your Desktop.
6. Once downloaded, go to where the update was saved and double-click the update.
7. After installing the update, you should no longer experience this problem.

Note: It is extremely important that you do not run Photo Explosion until you have restarted the computer and installed the update. If you run the program before installing the update, you will need to start the steps over from the beginning.

This comes directly from the Nova FAQs. Hope this helps!

Having problem with Photo Explosion on Windows 7. Get this error Load MPEG vio Driver Error "ulead.datPE.ini

A way to fix this error which is a font problem is to take the PE.ini from ProgramData\Ulead Systems\Ulead Photo Express\6.0 and stick it in the ulead.dat file in the Program Files (x86) if you have a 64 bit system and then find the u32Comm file in the program files (x86) and change the font to a font where it will not say that error again, I have done this in Windows Vista before and it worked, I also done it in Windows 7 and that also worked allthough right now I can't remember what font so you'll have to trial and error the fonts and maybe the sizes etc. but it's mainly a font error within Photo Explosion Deluxe, 1 problem I'm having is Photo Explosion Deluxe 3.0 loads on one desktop and loads fine newly created desktops but it doesn't load on others. I figure it was made by cheap software creators.
