    I have tried the compatability and it was already set to xp... my system is vista, when I bought bought the software I was told it would be fine for vista... was this a lie??

    i'm not sure if it works, but it usually does when you use vista

  • Dick van Zalinge Dec 15, 2007

    question: did you have version 2 before that?
    if so you should delete it, it might be holding 3 back

    according about any website it's compatible, but this happens a lot, Nova hasn't made a patch for it yet,

  • Dick van Zalinge Dec 15, 2007

    yay, i've found something that might work, it's on nova's own site


  • Dick van Zalinge Dec 15, 2007

Ipe.exe error at Novatel Photo Explosion Deluxe 2.0

Did you install it from an original disc or download it off the internet? If it is off an original disc, try making a copy of the dic if you have a burner. Now use the copy as the install disc. Unisntall it ands reinstall with backup copy disc. If you downloaded it off the net, the download is corrupted, and you need to uninstall it and download it again. Good luck.
