So, the problem: Ulead Photo Express suddenly stops working, uninstalling and reinstalling makes no difference; and yet it still shows up as running in the task manager (probably as IPE.40 or something similar).
After 2 months I FINALLY found a solution and thought I'd come back here to share it, in case it helps anyone else. ;)
(Btw, this may be specific to Photo Express version 4.0, but could still be worth trying for 6.0 or Photo Explosion as well).
According to this page on the Corel forum: http://phpbb.ulead.com.tw/EN/viewtopic.php?t=14912 There seems to be a conflict between Photo Express and 'K-Lite Codex pack'. If you've recently installed it, or any other image/media viewer on your system try uninstalling, restart, and then seeing if Photo Express works.
Or if your computer has just come back from the shop after a reinstallation, and photo express won't work on it anymore, check to see if the tech guys there 'helpfully' installed anything on your system that might cause the clash - that's what happened to me. I found the k-lite codec thing, uninstalled it, Photo Express worked just fine at last.

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!
you should contact the manufacturer because they have produced a version 4 which is compatible with Windows 7 see the link below. The company was saying they were working on a driver to fix the compatibility issue with version 3 but they obviously have one.
A way to fix this error which is a font problem is to take the PE.ini from ProgramData\Ulead Systems\Ulead Photo Express\6.0 and stick it in the ulead.dat file in the Program Files (x86) if you have a 64 bit system and then find the u32Comm file in the program files (x86) and change the font to a font where it will not say that error again, I have done this in Windows Vista before and it worked, I also done it in Windows 7 and that also worked allthough right now I can't remember what font so you'll have to trial and error the fonts and maybe the sizes etc. but it's mainly a font error within Photo Explosion Deluxe, 1 problem I'm having is Photo Explosion Deluxe 3.0 loads on one desktop and loads fine newly created desktops but it doesn't load on others. I figure it was made by cheap software creators.
