Question about Nova Development Photo Explosion Deluxe Version 3

1 Answer

I used Photo Expl 2 on my previous (XP) computer, but recently upgraded on a new computer to Windows 7 Home Premium. Had a problem with Photo Expl 2 on Windows 7 Home Premium, and I see by posts that Photo Expl 3 has problems on Windows 7 Home Premium as well. However, the REAL problem: I purchased Photo Expl 4, and it installed fine, but unlike the previous versions, I found it to very unfriendly and complicated. The format is totally different (at least from Version 2, and presumably from Version 3), and I have not been able to make any progress with it. I want to go back to the user-friendliness of one of the previous versions. My question: I understand that Windows 7 Professional includes an "XP Mode" feature, that will allow some XP-compatible 3rd party programs to run. If so, the answer might be to upgrade to Windows 7 Professional. Does anyone know if Photo Expl versions 2 or 3 will run ok on Windows 7 Professional XP Mode? Meantime, I guess I will have to consider another photo program, such as Corel. Thanks

Here's one from left field,

Download this photo app. It on all new customer's software builds.

After that, yes, there is an XP Mode available for free download to users of W7 Pro, Ultimate or Enterprise and would run your previous more "friendly" version.

I want windows 7 home premium 64 bit license key


Buy Windows 7 Activation Key 64bit 32bit
http://www.Genuinewindowkey.com/
Hearing all the negative sentiments toward the Windows 10 Education Product Key OS made me really cautious in upgrading from Windows 7.
Finally, my Windows 7 became buggy enough that I decided it was time for me to go ahead and upgrade.
The days of reformatting my hard drive and reinstalling Windows OS (95, 98, XP...), when the computer started to act up, are over. I got the pro upgrade version....for a really great price on http://www.Genuinewindowkey.com/ .
I purchased all my software from them. They are the best online store I ever buy.
Installation took a while, with lots of downloading and installing drivers, updates...etc.
When it was finally done, computer was running a lot faster, and all of the weird behaviors of previous installation were gone.
Now as far as using the new OS, it really wasn't that big of a deal. Yes, it's different from the previous Windows; but after 2 or 3 days, I've picked up so many cool features that I truly believe it's a superior OS compared to the previous Windows releases. Really.
The interface is quite convenient once you figure out how to use all the features and what happens when you move your cursor around the screen.
Oh, yeah, and I don't have a touchscreen. Although I'm certain that a touchscreen would definitely be a more effective way to navigate Windows 8, I really have no problems using just the mouse.
So, there you have it. I love this new OS.

Windows Installation Disc VS Windows Upgrade Disc -NOT THE SAME-


Having Trouble Booting To Your Windows Upgrade Disc?

...Upgrade discs aren't bootable discs. To repair a windows installation, you must use either a system repair disc or, better yet, a windows installation disc (genuine Retail/OEM discs are pretty much your only option to completely reinstall your windows operating system, unless you own a previous full installation disc of a previously released Windows version (such as XP or Vista), in which case you could install that windows operating system and then upgrade to a newer windows OS like windows 7. however if you ever need to reinstall windows 7, you would either need to reinstall the older windows OS, then upgrade to the newer one.

If that isn't clear, I'll sum it up....

Let's say you bought a computer, that computer had windows xp home edition. Maybe you wanted to upgrade from Windows XP/Windows Vista or Windows 7?
Well in order to switch from Windows XP/Vista to Windows 7, (or even from Windows 7 home premium- to windows7 Pro or Ultimate), then you must either:
A) Buy an upgrade disc and upgrade to the newer desired version.
B) Or, Buy a Retail Copy of the version you want to install. (keep in mind that a retail Windows 7 disc can be used to perform an upgrade rather than to competely wipe the hard disc and perform a clean install (delete partitions, reformat, and perform a new windows installation), if you so choose.

The bottom line is, you cannot Install a fresh clean copy of windows using an upgrade disc. OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and Retail Windows Operation System Installation Setup Discs are "Bootable Discs". Windows Upgrade Discs are NOT bootable. (unless one where to "modify that particular disc, which is not legal).

I could not upgrade neither windows XP, Windows 7 of this Product Model: GT5662. Would you assits? Thanks.


Hello kelvinvu, according to the information that I gathered from this computer model, it has Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed on it. Windows XP is an older operating system so you can't "upgrade" to it. You could however install a fresh copy (more likely completely erasing all your previous information on vista and data files) or you could upgrade to Windows 7. Since you are using "Windows Vista 32 bit home premium", you have to upgrade to "Windows 7 32 bit home premium" or better. So if you were trying to "upgrade" to Windows 7 Home Basic, it will not allow that since it considers that a downgrade in the Operating System. You should actually be able to pop in the Windows 7 Home Premium CD while vista is running and start the upgrade process pretty painlessly that way. Just access the CD and walk through the menus for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. As a reminder, you must use the 32 bit discs. If you try and use the 64 bit discs (a different operating system as far as windows is concerned) you will have to go through the same process of installing a new version of windows (not upgrade). I hope this has solved your specific problem kelvinvu, have a great day!

I'm running windows xp professional how can i upgrade to windows 7 and which version of windows 7 is better for me


Hi, You can't do a direct update from windows xp to windows 7 you will need to perform a clean install. This means you should backup everything on your computer as when you install windows 7 this information with be deleted. I would recommend windows 7 home premium as the best windows 7 for most people as it has everything you will require. Windows 7 Ultimate is more expense but gives you nothing of note extra.
Hope that helps.

I cannot install java on windows vista home premium why???


There are several problems with Vista. You might have to find a previous version of Java that will work for Vista. Two solutions: 1.) find previous version of Java on Filehippo.com; or 2.) Upgrade to Windows 7 (recommended). Windows Vista is the predecessor to 7. 7 is far more stable and will find almost everything you need on its own.
