Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Two computers ago, and two operating systems ago I purchased MGI Photosuite 4 software. I have been using it for about 10 years. I have hundreds of collages saved that require the MGI software to read and print. Recently I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7. The "Computer Nerd" who upgraded couldn't get the Photosuite 4 software to transfer to Windows 7. He saved the MGI program files on a hard drive (I don't have the original disc). What do I do? I need to be able to print the old collages, and, if possible I would like to use Photosuite 4 functions in the future. Would Roxio Photosuite 8 work? Is it Windows compatable? What do I do? E. Payne

Wndows installers have changed over the years, so it's not a surprise that the program couldn't be reinstalled. The Roxio Photosuite 8 is listed as a Win2000-XP product; so it may not be the correct release for Win7 either unless you use a workaround. Look here for the current Roxio slide show products: http://www.roxio.com/enu/store/photo.html?rTrack=m_pro_photo

Workarounds: go with a dual-boot or virtual computer system. Win7 Pro and Ultimate let you run a virtual XP computer for free (download two programs - the virtual PC software and then XP mode). All other choices will require a licensed version of XP installed either in the virtual computer program or in a second partition for dual-boot. I've found that files can not be transferred directly from XP mode to the real computer; they must be stored on external media. Then install your software as you would on any stand-alone computer.

I hope this helps.

I have been using MGI photosuite 8.1 for a number of years. Now I have a new computer with Windows 7 and it will not install.I need a 64-bit version of a new Photosuite. Tell me what to get and do....


The MGI company has been bought by Roxio - all their products are no longer updated or supported.
The new ones from Roxio don't offer the same tools and cost more. Instead of them you should get this
http://www.amazon.com/Corel-PaintShop-Photo-Pro-X3/dp/B002J9V9BO/ref=pd_sim_sbs_sw_1
Not only it's much more powerful than what you had but it works on an 64bit 7 OS

I need to get MGI photosuite that will work with Windows 7 64 bit. where can I find it??


Just today I was able to get PhotoSuite 4 to work in Windows 8 (64 BIT). PhotoSuite 4 (P.S. 4) is dependent upon Internet Explorer 5 (I.E. 5) browser for its content/software to work. The original P.S. 4 CD has
I.E. 5 installer, I tried to install and the install quit with a check box to force install of all components. Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 8 was not affected in any way, that's how I got back here anyway.
I have read ton's of suggestions and one mentioned I.E. Browser dependency and walla it was the answer that took me ten minutes to get it up and running.
Good luck!

What MGI Photosuite will work on Windows 7?


I just installed Photosuite 4.0 on Win 7; 64 bit. Works just as great as it did with ME and XP before. Since MGI sold out an error message pops up about some liquid something. I think it is a dead URL to the former MGI site.

I need free mgi photosuite se for 64 bit windows 7


If you have the original CD's then follow next:

Just today I was able to get PhotoSuite 4 to work in Windows 8. PhotoSuite 4 (P.S. 4) is dependent upon Internet Explorer 5 (I.E. 5) browser for its content/software to work. The original P.S. 4 CD has

Good luck!

Why cant i use photosuite with windows7?


This is due to Software compatibility issues with your new Operating System(OS).ie Win7. The developers/authors for this software do not have any clear guide or solutions regarding OS compatibility issues! There is nothing you can do to fix it, but your can use another photo editing software which is Win 7 compliance.

Hopr it helps.

I want to use my Photosuite 4 Platinum with Vista. Works great on xp but not Vista. How can I can fix it so it will work on Vista?


This problem is all about Internet Explorer 10. W7 has a simple solution. Just go to 'Installed updates' and remove IE10. Voila! MGI 4 works just fine.

W8 is another whole ball of wax. It comes with IE10, so until someone gives us a registry edit to fix this problem then W8 users are SOL.

Running MGI Photosuite version 8.05 in Vista


MGI Photosuite on Vista, THE FINAL SOLUTION!!! First you need to get hold of an MGI disc or a download. I have been trying to get MGI Photosuite III SE to install on Vista for months without success and then when I thought I'd finally sorted it I could not launch the program due to a script error. You do not need Virtual PC, Virtual XP or any add-ons. Simply find and right click the the MGI setup file, check the run in compatibility mode as Windows XP SP2 and install. After install, send a program launch shortcut to your desktop, right click, go to properties and check the Windows XP compatibility mode once again. Finally, while you still have the compatibility screen open add a tick check to Run As Administrator. Hey presto my beloved MGI Photosuite is back! MGI is fantastic for being user friendly and simple, and although I know other users insist there are better programs, I’ve tried loads and I still think it’s a winner.
