Question about Nova Development Photo Explosion Deluxe for PC

1 Answer

Just won't work anymore!

So I've had my Photo Explosion Deluxe software for three years now and I've never had any problems with it. About two months ago it just stopped working. It's installed on my computer and I've even un-installed and reinstalled it many times. The computer recognizes that it is an added program but every time I try to load it, nothing ever comes up. I'm getting quite frustrated. I've done everything that the website has told me to do. The only other thing I have left to do is call support but I just don't have the time to wait hours for a person to pick up the phone. Please help.

    I am having the exact problem? It worked fine for the last roughly 2 years and I wanted to use it during the holidays and no matter what I do it hangs up trying to load and finally says "not responding"? I can't even open it long enough to get into the help screens.

    It seems to have just disappeared one day! All the shortcuts and links to it are there but nothing happens when I try to open it. Unistalling/reinstalling isn't helping!!

    Photo Explosion won't open. Was fine for a long time and now won't open no matter what I do. Unistalling and reinstalling doesn't help. I've tried that 3 times.

I had the same problem, and a friend said photo explosion was conflicting with internet explorer 6. I uninstalled internet explorer version 6, and that worked for about 3 months. Now, the program won't run again. But, I did just install firefox, so maybe that's it.....

I bought a new laptop a couple months ago and tried to download my Photo Explosion Special Edition v.3 to it. It successfully downloads, but won't open, even after a reboot and a reinstall to repair...

if its windows 7 you may need to try "compatibility mode" right click on the icon and go to properties and select the compatibility tap and then try different ones until it works.... you may need to go to the software makers web site and look for a patch for the software to work with win 7

Upgraded from windows vista to windows 7 and and I am told photo explosion deluxe version 3 is incompatible with windows 7. what can be done to make it compatible?

you should contact the manufacturer because they have produced a version 4 which is compatible with Windows 7 see the link below. The company was saying they were working on a driver to fix the compatibility issue with version 3 but they obviously have one.

Ulead Photo Express has stopped working

So, the problem: Ulead Photo Express suddenly stops working, uninstalling and reinstalling makes no difference; and yet it still shows up as running in the task manager (probably as IPE.40 or something similar).

After 2 months I FINALLY found a solution and thought I'd come back here to share it, in case it helps anyone else. ;)

(Btw, this may be specific to Photo Express version 4.0, but could still be worth trying for 6.0 or Photo Explosion as well).

According to this page on the Corel forum: There seems to be a conflict between Photo Express and 'K-Lite Codex pack'. If you've recently installed it, or any other image/media viewer on your system try uninstalling, restart, and then seeing if Photo Express works.

Or if your computer has just come back from the shop after a reinstallation, and photo express won't work on it anymore, check to see if the tech guys there 'helpfully' installed anything on your system that might cause the clash - that's what happened to me. I found the k-lite codec thing, uninstalled it, Photo Express worked just fine at last.

Hope that helped a bit!
