I downloaded PM 7 Tryout from adobe When i

Hi. You'll be better off downloading and installing the tryout for Adobe Indesign than PageMaker. InDesign is the improved version of PageMaker and it can open your old PM7 files. With your current PC specs, you can definitely run that software.

Adobe premiere elements software

The "VBox" in this error is probably part of the 30 day trial protection mechanism.
The error could be caused by trying to install the trial without being logged on with Administrator rights.
Other possible causes:
- Network time sychronization/correction software [XNTP, NTP, etc.]
- Defective SCSI or Soundcard drivers that "Disable DMA" or make excessive use of "PCI BusMastering" to transfer data. A common problem on systems with Adaptec SCSI, Creative "SoundBlaster Live!", or "Aureal" based cards.
- Piracy software that attempts to break the "30-day demo" limitations. Hope this helps you,

Installing pagemaker 7.0

First, verify that you are installing on a compatible platform and OS. If you meet the minimum requirements, do you get a specific error during installation, or does the install complete but fail to run the app?
If the install fails, check your CD for dirt or scratches - since you said you 'acquired' it, I assume second hand media and that it may be damaged.
If it is damaged but you have a valid license, Adobe may replace the disk for you if you can prove legal ownership - usually a small fee involved.
If it fails to run, include the error message for aditional guidance.
Hope this helps.
