    I have done as instructed above & find no traces of photo impact or nova

    As I attempt to install it says has found another version of Photo Impact that needs to be uninstalled. Search as I may, I find nothing obvious to uninstall.

    I have done ccleaner, registry mechanic, Windows installer cleanup utility, config, regedit, nothing changes....

Hi oh is here. Step one...Download Ccleaner and run the tegistry scan (it's free) as well as the application scans. Step two go to tools in Ccleaner and if it appears uninstall it. Now go to Regedit....type the command in the run box....find the find command, type in photoimpact, and delete those keys or values....BE VERY CAREFUL to not delete anything else. Do the search on the entire registry. When done....reboot....and try to install again. It should work and you may have a faster machine as well (vis-a-vie cleaning the registry). By the way....if you wish to clean even more junk out of the registry try Wiseregistrycleaner....I use both but suggest only the former to most folks as the latter requires one understand what it's doing (but it's still pretty failsafe).

You might also want to do a registry back up or create a restore point before doing all this stuff.

You will succeed. Tango.. PS...Suggest you use Ccleaner weekly if you access the internet along with Ad-aware and Spybot Search and Destroy....also do a scandisk at least monthly and every 3 months do a thorough scandisk (the latter takes some time to run).

  • Stephen Jones Feb 09, 2008 are a novice...not a problem but you will have to tell me what Operating system you are using....Windows ? a first step.

    Also when you say you ran a search....what application did you use?

    And did you follow my instructions exactly?

    Need this information to understand where you are at relative to time, space, confusion (mine and yours).

    Lastly....if you check windows help and go to the topic of "restore" you can just do a restore to the day before you had a problem....if that day is still. Don't restore if it is not.

    Let me know. Tango

  • Stephen Jones Feb 10, 2008

    Back again......I am going to assume you did not try to do a restore to a date prior to your problem. If you can do this first but only if it's a date prior to your problem. Next let me know what operating system you have, what messages appear or appeared when it crashed, and what the messages currently say. Suggest you stop doing anything else and advise back. Operating system dependent you may be able to do a "repair"...not a reinstall. You can try that independent of getting back to me. It sounds like you still have some file or files in Windows corrupted. Also check device manager to see if you have any exclamation marks. If so reinstall the driver. In addition you might want to check under accessories, under system information under tools for conflicts, up a bit on each's a very helpful place to go. Comment back if none of this works...keep track of what you have done...that automatically sends me an email. Don't try to make me a buddy. Keep the faith...we will solve it. Tango.

When i click on the icon for photo impact pro the program opens of a brief moment and then shuts down

Are you using 'Vista'? That's the first thing I thought of, since a lot of good software made for 'XP' became either incompatible, or 'manually installable' once Vista came along.
IF you already know how to install stuff using Vista's 'Compatibility Mode', kindly disregard my 'sage advice'...just trying to help here...if NOT, then follow these directions:
IF you ARE using Vista, then try this:
  1. Uninstall it first. If you already know how, then skip on to step '3'. If not, then read on.
  2. Go into 'Control Panel', then select 'Programs and Features', find PhotoImpact Pro, and uninstall it, either by 'right-clicking' it and choosing 'uninstall', or left-clicking it, then selecting 'uninstall' from top menu.
  3. Now that you've uninstalled it, reboot your system (just in case...we ARE dealing with Windows, here!) Leave your 'PhotoImpact Pro' CD or DVD in the computer.
  4. Once Windows reboots, click the 'Start' button, then find and click on 'Computer' in the right column.
  5. Find the 'Drive Letter' your PhotoImpact disc is in (it should say, with their icon). Right-click it, then select 'Explore' from the pop-up window.
  6. You're 'exploring' your install disc to find either a 'Setup' icon, or an 'Install' icon. When you do, Right-click it, then select 'Properties'.
  7. See the little 'Compatibility' tab up top? Click on that, then set everything in that window the same as in the image at this link.
  8. Once done, make sure to click 'OK', then just re-find that same exact icon and double-click it, as if you were just installing normally.
  9. This should help you get it installed in 'Vista Compatibility Mode'.
Hope this helps! All the Amazon reviews said it's great software!

My computer is not installing my photo impact 8.5

Photo impact pro as a software has compatibility requirements. For example, impact pro was invented during the times of windows Xp operating systems with Microsoft computers. Imply that, impact pro would hardly function with apple Mac computers. Since the Xp operating systems, computers have gone through design fronts of Windows Vista 1 & 2, and recently displaying Windows 7 on those acquired on the market over years ago. The most recent multimedia photo editor software's acquirable on the retail market have compartibilies with more recent computers. Alternately, performing a computer alteration may achieve installation capabilities. First, finding a computer still functioning on windows XP, millennium, 2000 or 1998 would make installation possible. However, sustain wearsomeness since windows 98 earlier years computers were least designed for multimedia capabilities as known with Photo Impact Pro 8.5. Second, a possibility of acquiring Windows Xp disk software on the retail market to replace the one on the computer would make impact pro installable. However like known of operating system software's, it is only possible to install the same operating system on an existing one on a computer as restoration purposes. If different software should be acquired like XP requesting installation on windows Vista or Windows 7, the entire hard disk drive has to be erased of media traces of the prior. Alerternately, a new operating system may be installed if only a new hard drive, memory cards were acquired to replace the prior on the computer to make possible installation of Photo Impact pro 8.5

Studio utility crashing

What did you do or what changes did you make to your computer since all operated fine? Bad things just do not happen - you must have done something that is now responsible for the issue. Can you repair your Vista installation - your OS may be at issue. If you have other computer with Vista try installing there to see if it works. Maybe something is now wrong with the camera - it happens.
