Question about Nova Development Photo Explosion Deluxe for PC

Photo Explosion will not install

I have installed on another computer, which is older and went to install on the newer computer and get interrupted message. I have gone to the tech support - they indicated that it is something with my driver. Asked them if there is a work around they said no. I can't believe it. I have never had such a hard time installing software. My daughter says the software is awesome! Help.

I have the Platinum 22 Version and just purchased the Silver 22 Version. Which is the newest and will I benefit installing it.

Usually computer softwares are generational in compartibility. For example, the older versions were designed as compatible to older devices. Alternately, the newer versions are compartible with recent computers. However, depending on the situation where having an older computer would be more resourcesful with prior photo studios. Alternately, installing an older version on newer computers means least externsive productivity. Estimate the computers modern features to decide on acquiring either version. However, each studio is has as much productivity when installed on the appropiate generation of computer devices.

This used to work perfectly on windows XP. I now have windows 7 & after downloading the Photo Explosion 2.0, it won't open & the programme just freezes. Help.

Downloading means you retrive any files and save to your PC/Laptop from any web source!
Installing means you install any software/programs to run on your PC/Laptop.

As for your software "Photo Explosion 2.0" could not run on Win 7 due to software "Compatibility Issues".

You can try, using "Win 7 compatibility mode" installing older software read this LINK

"There is no guarantees older software will work using Win 7 compatibility mode!"

Hope it helps.

Installing Photo Explosion Deluxe

Did you look in C:\Program Files\Common Files folder?
Some programs will place shared files in here.

If that does not work, download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility from:

Install it, then run it from Programs. If you see either of these programs have the utility remove it.

Problem installing Photo Explosion

I suggest a class action lawsuit. Clearly this product does not install on Vista (as advertised) - I'm having same problem and same run around.
Wouldn't mind if the packaging did not say Vista and I tried it anyway but I bought explicitly to run on my Vista machine.

I'm a sofware developer and still can't find a workaround without tearing up this OS. Clearly never tested on a Vista platform.
