I do not believe this is possible. Adobe now makes 64 bit only programs since coming out with Creative Suite 4 and Photoshop. If you have 7 Professional or better, you can download Microsoft Virtual Machine and Virtual XP SP3 machine free (Microsoft.com) and install Photo Deluxe in the virtual machine.
VirtualBox is another free one.

The Problem.... is that Windows 7 will not automatically share files with an XP operating systems, even if you are dual booting!.... you need to manually configure your photo software to include that drive in it's library.
It's actually good that Windows acts this way, it's SECURE!.... Windows 7 is by far the most secure version of windows so far... to say the least. believe it or not, you can (Not recommended to the averange end user fyi) run it without any 3rd party PC antivirus software (as long as you are cautious, REALLY know what you are doing, and only visit secure sites, and are updating Windows Defender constantly...)
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!
Right Click the .exe file of your photo explosions deluxe and choose properties and then click on Compatibilty tab and then click on Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP Service Pack 1 or 2
I found this solution on another forum and it worked for me. I have Adobe Photodeluxe 4 on a vista OS and got the same RAM error. I tried the "change the virtual memory" fix and that did not work. Then I found this: Right click on the Adobe Photodeluxe icon on the desktop and choose Properties, click on the Compatibility tab and choose run this progam in Windows XP service pack 2 mode. It worked for me!
I just got Photo deluxe 2.0 to work on a new computer
(bought Feb. 2010) with Windows 7, and I don’t even have a .setup file. This
was a program that came with an HP years ago when they included a lot of
software. I had simply dragged and dropped the program onto a CD. Since then I loaded
and ran it on my XP without problem. Now
with Windows 7 I got the ‘not enough RAM’ message and tried everything
suggested on several blogs without luck. To fix the problem I right clicked on
the .exe file and selected ‘properties’. Went to ‘compatibility’ then checked ‘run
this program in compatibility mode for:’ and selected, ‘windows 98 / windows me’.
Boy was I happy to see it up and running again. Hope this helps someone out
there, this is a great program. I’ve used the newer versions and they are WAY
too complicated for my usage.
Go into the PhotoDeluxe2.0 CD ROM file list, right click on setup.exe and then go to the compatability tab. Select Win 98/ME. Hit OK. Then double-click on setup.exe. Program should install on Vista. Then find setup.exe on your hard drive, and set the compatability to Windows 98/ME. Program runs, but says something about not being able to load 16-bit driver. Just cancel out of that popup window. Program works fine...for me...so far.
Please try this. It worked for me.
