    I can't save any photos now with Vista.

  • OldManStan Mar 31, 2008

    I'm having the same problem with PhotoDeluxe. I'd been using it for 6 months with Vista and it used to let me save the pics I worked on but now whenever I try to save the program completely shuts down. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it and it still does the same thing.

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.

I had the same problem with Adobe Photo 3.1when I upgrade to Windows XP...Not sure it will work with Vista but worth a shot.. Uninstall Photo Deluxe through ADD/REMOVE Programs..Go into programs and delete the Adobe Photo folder..Place the photo deluxe CD in the rom drive. If it auto runs cancel the auto run. Open My Computer and right click on Photo Deluxe (D) drive or the drive you used. Click on Explore then right click Setup.exe. Setup window will appear. Now click on the Compatibility Tab. Set it for Windows 98 or Me then click apply then click ok. Now go back and run Setup. Do not auto run. Hope this helps worked great with my Windows Xp.

    For Photodeluxe 2.0 "Not Enough Ram" to run program error message:
    For Windows XP and older
    Go to cotrol panel
    open System
    Click on Advanced
    Be sure PROGRAMS is selected under both Processor scheduling AND Memory usage.
    Under Virtual Memory click CHANGE.
    Under white box, says Drive: C [the mane of your compter]
    under that is Space Aavailable: this is where your number of available MB appears.
    Look at this number carefully. My number is 106270 MB available. Choose a number LESS than the available space but allowing enough space left over in case your system needs to do a restore because it is from this available space that restores run from. The LESSER number I chose in my case was 110000. This number goes into the BOTTOM WHITE BOX called Maximum size (MB). Go ahead, delete whatever number is in there now and put your newly chosesn number in that box. Now, here's the important part. Your new number -- the one you just typed into the Maximum sixe box -- divide that number EXACTLY in half, and type that HALF number into the box ABOVE the Maximum size box where it says Initial size (MB).
    It is imperative that the number on top EXACTLY one half on the number on the bottom, or Photo Deluxe won't run. Click SET, then APPLY, the OK> You will be prompted for one of two things. It will say you have to restart. DO SO> or it will say to choose a smaller number for your MAXIMUM size entry. No big deal. Just keep using a little bit (500 MB or so) smaller number in that MAXIMUM sixe box, being SURE to change the top number to EXACTLY half of your new number until when you click set, is prompts you to go ahead and restart.
    I wouldn't go to the compatibility feature in PhotoDeluxe and change it to run under a different system. It seems like it makes sense to do so if your operating system is upgraded from the original system that Adobe Photo Deluxe was made for, but it cause error messags, and lots of other issues, when all you really need is to adjust that Virtual Memory number. Hope this works for you. Adobe PhotoDeluxe 2.0 ROCKS!

Vista does not seem to work well yet with Adobe(older versionS).
Adobe CS3 is the only prog. @ present able to handle Vista.
If you are using older versions,stay with XP & 2000

Here's is what is happening with the memory problem. Older programs such as PhotoDeluxe 2.0 and 3.0 do not know how to read higher ram and video memory. The program is reading any thing over 512mb video or ram as a negitive number . aka. you have +2 gigs of ram on board, PhotoDeluxe is reading it as negative 1.96mb ram. Another issue with the virtual memory is back when PhotoDeluxe was released a 1 gig hard drive was not even thought of. So PhotoDeluxe is once again reading negative Virtual Memory. Want PhotoDeluxe to work? What I did was just got an older Pc with a tiny 10gig IDE HDD drive and 256mb ram and installed Widows 95 on it and just use a flash drive when I need to work on a picture. The same thing is happening with the Older version of Music Match's Audio editor and Tag editor.
Their is a way to fix Adobe and Music Match to run on a newer operating system but unless ya'll ask I m not typing as it takes a lot of mods to the actual program its self. If ya want to run them on Vista or Windows 7 it is able too, just ask here on this page and I''ll post it.

    Okay, Im asking. I have Adobe hoto Deluxe 1.0 Business Edition. It was working on Windows XP but my computer died and I had to purchase a new one. It has windows 7 and my CD for Adobe just sits there and does nothing. Can you help me?

    This will fix the Export Image dialog box hang/crash (UNABLE TO SAVE IMAGE). With all versions of Windows after 2000 pro.

    Ok, Here's the problem, it was caused by Windows Update. The new update covers issues with Internet Explorer and the font folder from the PD Deluxe CD. If you remove all of the recent updates for Internet Explorer (restore to it's original state is best as it will restore PD File commands for the Fonts) your Adobe 2.0 and 3.0 will allow you to export your pics. Provided you have already followed the above past solutions completed.(Start with the 1st and end with this) If security is an issue don't use Internet Explorer any more use another secure browser such as Mozilla, these browsers are not proprietary to Windows Explorer.
    *REFERENCE NOTE *The Export Image in PD v1-v4 uses Windows Explorer for the save as dialog box which was later fixed with PS Elements to use its own command box. Windows Explorer and Windows Internet Explorer use the same basics of each other. If I confused you let me know and I will try to elaborate as this is just a quick reference for more advanced users.

    Follow Compaqguy200 fix which i copied below here for easy access.
    This worked for me on my Windows 7 pro. I run all 4 versions of adobe with no problems on Win 7 I am a vivid user of Photo Deluxe. Just remember you cannot run PS Elements or any other newer editor at the same time nor in the same session. Use PD FIRST then use other editor is fine, but memory error with Virtual Memory HDD will occur if you do not restart your computer before returning to PD V1-V5. I haven't figured out a fix for this but will post when I do. Also make sure to setup your font installation from CD the same way as you do the PD Setup. When the dialog pops up to install the fonts just say no and install after setup PD finishes and restarts **(Some CD versions install differently pending on if yours came with a printer bundle or if yours came from purchased disks.)** A little thought and patience will get you there!

Solution #2...your absolutely right! I did just what you said and it worked. One minor point of clarification. After you set up photodeluxe (as you described) go to the .exe start icon, right click on it and click on properties to set the compatibility. As said above choose "windows 98 and me" at least thats what mine says. All the rest is spot on. Thanks a million!

Can not get Adobe PhotoDeluxe2.0 to install on windows 7. Worked fine on Vista


Adobe Photo Deluxe is an older program that does not seem to be compatible with Windows 7. you should contact Adobe to see if they have an updated version.

However, you can try the following to see if it will help.
If the program is not compatible, then you may try to install and run the program in compatibility mode.
Use the following steps:
1)Right click on the Program
2)Click on Properties
3)Click on Compatibility tab
4)Select Run this program in compatibility mode and select Windows Vista or whatever operating system the program was running successfully.

I was making a video of all my pics a while back and saved it to a dvd-r. I forgot all about it and ran across it yesterday. I now want to get those pics off of that file which is a wmv file. Do I need to...


If all you have now is the video (wmv) file and no pictures saved anywhere there isn't a direct way to get them back to their original form. The simplest solution that requires no extra software may work okay, depending on how much the quality of the photos matters.

What you need:

Open up the Paint program (Start Menu > Search bar > type in 'Paint' and open the file it finds)
Run the video file (fullscreen)

You can open the video and for every picture you have pause the video and then hit the 'Prt Scrn' (print screen) key once; usually located towards the upper right of the keyboard.
Once you have done that pull up the Paint program and either press Ctrl+V or click the "Paste" icon at the far left side of the toolbar. If that worked you should have a copy of the picture in paint now. If you do then save the image.
Now just go back to the video and resume play until you get to the next picture, pause it, and repeat the above steps until you have all the photos saved.

There are screen capture programs that would simplify this process, but I don't have any to suggest offhand except FRAPS which costs about $30 to purchase and is primarily used for video recording.

Hi bon_kahlua_r,

It means that your Digital Photo Frame might not have support for the file formats of some pictures that you saved. Most Digital Photo Frame supports *.jpg formats. Please check the manual of your Digital Photo Frame as well as the files that your saved. Right-click on the pictures that are not supported then Click Properties. You should be able to see the file format of the picture then compare it to the Frame's manual if it's supported.

Thanks

I AM TRYING TO FILL IN AN APPLICATION FORM IN A PDF FILE AND I DON'T GET ANY OPTIONS TO HIGHLIGHT TEXTS. IS IT BECAUSE THE COMPUTER I'M USING DOESN'T HAVE MICROSOFT WORD INSTALLED?


What program did you use to open the PDF? If you opened it with the default program, you probably used Adobe Reader which does not allow you to edit PDFs. You can import PDFs into several Office suites with add-ons. For example, Open Office 3 has a PDF add-on that lets the PDF be opened and modified in Draw and Impress. There are also online PDF editors and some low cost alternatives to Adobe Acrobat is the full program that makes PDFs. PDFill PDF Editor gets some good reviews
http://download.cnet.com/PDFill-PDF-Editor/3000-6675_4-10295757.html
as does www.pdfescape.com/ (an on-line option). Please note that most will put their logo on your document as a footer or somewhere unless you use a paid version.

I hope this helps.

(word does the PDF import more easily as I recall (possibly with an add-on) but there are alternatives.)

MY QUESTIONS ARE DIRECTED TOWARD ADOBE ACROBAT 9.0 AND FILE GLITCHES 1. MOST OF THE TIME LONG ADOBE FILE SAVES UP TO 50 CHARACTERS... THE LONG FILE NAMES SAVE AND USUALLY WILL OPEN WHEN ACCESSED....


I'm assuming you're on Windows not a Mac? File name length maximums are not limited by the application (in your case Adobe) but the operating system. For example,
"C:\Documents and Settings\My Documents\My file.doc" is 50 characters long. The limit is 256 characters. Check to see if the number of subdirectories or something is making the name too long to be able to be handled.

Adobe Photodeluxe 2.0 /VISTA


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.
