Microsoft Picture It! software has been discontinued and replaced by Microsoft's Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011 which is part of Windows Live Essentials 2011. It is usually installed with Windows 7. However, if you are still using Windows XP, you can download here:
Unfortunately the Windows OS has changed significantly since that software was released. Nova Developement now has the Greeting Card Factory Deluxe version 8 for XP/Vista/7.
If you have the 64-bit Vista, you may not be able to get the old software to work and need the upgrade or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS (see below). To check your OS version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System .
You can try running the program in the compatibility mode - this will work best with software for XP not Win95-NT. Right click on the installer and select Properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and choose Run this program as compatible with (an older version of Windows). Click on the check box and use the drop-down menu to select the older OS. Save the change by clicking apply then close the window. Right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.
If the program installs, do the same compatibility steps for the program's exe file itself. (You don't need to run as administrator though.)
Alternatively, you can run a dual boot or virtual computer with an older Windows OS. (Programs like Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare let you run a virtual computer inside the Vista system with a computer that can handle virtualization.) Unfortunately, you usually need a licensed version of Windows to do this. (Win7 Pro and Ultimate let you do this free with Virtual PC and XP mode.) Then install the software normally in the virtual computer or when booted into the older version of Windows. File transfer can be tricky with the virtual computer - you need to save files to external media (flash drive or optical disc). Printers can't be installed on both the real and virtual computer at the same time.
If the software was made to support Windows 95 and above, it wont hurt to try and see if Win Vista will accept and run the program properly. The worst thing that can happen is that the installation will not complete.
The software might be too old to run properly on Win Vista, or if it does allow it to install the graphics may seem really old and funny looking - but it won't hurt anything to try and find out.
It Took Me About 40 min. to figure it out 1. install master cook 6.0 2. open sierra on c drive c:\sierra\mastercook6\program 3. delete msvcp.dll file mastercook 6.0 will now run there will be no cookbooks 1. goto file\open add it will list all the cookbooks 2. open each one and then everything works as normal
go to control panel and remove program and uninstall it then reinstall it if dont work then your computer memory not enough,check on back boxs what are the reqirments are to install succesfully ,if my info was of any help to you please leave me a comment ,thankyou.
hi there. mastercook 6 runs on older windows versions like win95, win98 and win Millenium Edition only, newer are not supported.sorry
MasterCook deluxe 9.0 supports win2000, XP and VISTA, but this would mean spending another 19.99 on amazon.
you could try to install the 6.0 version on an older machine that still has win98 on it or think about setting up a multi-boot system (u need some computer expertise)so you can install multiple operation systems on your laptop, but this takes a lot of effort and all the drivers for your computer for win98, so spend of whatever you have more of, time or money...
Just delete the msvcrt.dll file from the SHA folder (C:\Sierra\SHA).
1. Click on the Start button. 2. Click on Computer. 3. Click on Local Disk (C:). 4. Double-click on the Program Files folder. 4. Double-click on SIERRA folder. 5. Double-click on the SHA folder. 6. Click on the msvcrt.dll file. 7. Press delete.
if your problem is the installation in Windows Vista--> Try to use this sw in Compatibility mode--> Desktop--> right click on the program icon--> Properties--> compatibility--> select Windows XP or other older version
