    Install CD #1 will not open to install the software. I can see what is on the CD using "my computer", but when clicking on the setup.exe the system will hang and will have to restart the computer.

    I have the same problem. I uninstalled the program and then re-insttalled the software but when I try to open the Photo Exp. program, I get the same error message "cannot reset background image". The error message is frozen on my screen and I have to shut down the computer to get rid of it. The software is useless and there is no solution to this problem.

I had the same problem, I moved most all my pictures from the Folder C/ pictures to C/photos folder . the C/pictures is the folder that my photo exp del 3 opens to. I had to many pictures in it to open before windows would time it out,and close it. It works great now. This is a great grogram, I love it., Buy the way , I recieved this solution by prayer, I asked for months, I was going to clear my pc, and start from scratch, (Thank Jesus I didn,t have to). I share this solution and Jesus with. you. Hope this will help you also.
God love!

This is from the FAQ on PE's site:

When I try to run the program under Windows XP, I get an error “can not reset background”. How can I fix this?

This happens to machines that have been upgraded to XP from an older operating system. To change the program compatibility, right-click on the program icon and go to Properties. Under the compatibility tab select the previous OS from the drop down menu and click OK. The program should now open correctly.


Hope that helps.

http://www.novadevelopment.com/Support/Updates.aspx

7. After installing the update, you should no longer experience this problem.

Loading nova photo explosion version 3



to quote the website:
We have found that this is often due to other programs running in the background during the time of installation. We recommend that you try the following:
  1. Click the Start button.
  2. Click the Run option.
  3. On the Run window, type in "msconfig" without the quotes in the Open field.
  4. Click the OK button. This will open the System Configuration window.
  5. Click the Diagnostic Startup option on the General tab.
  6. Click the OK button.
  7. A window will open with a message indicating that it will need to restart. Click the Restart button.
Once the computer finishes restarting, make sure that you disable both your virus scanning software and firewall software, if you have either installed. Then, start the installation over.
Once the installation is completed, perform the following to return your system to its previous state:
  1. Repeat steps 1-4 from above.
  2. Click the Normal Startup option on the General tab.
  3. Click the OK button.
  4. A window will open with a message indicating that it will need to restart. Click the Restart button.
and here
is a vista update

Photo explosion 4.0 project studio. When I create


I kind of doubt this is your problem, but try and save the file by using the "save by a different name option." Then click options and slide the file size to large. Make sure you have your color setting set to rbg, not cymk. The channel should be set to 8 bits, not 16. I am not sure where that selection would be made in 4.0, but jpgs are not compatible with 16 bit channel. If you can't find the setting, check the help file.

Two questions: 1 Can you open any pdf and jpg files in Photo explosion, and 2 can you open the files you have created in photo explosion in another program?

If you can't open any jpgs/pdfs with any program, the problem is probably with your operating system. If the problem is only with photo explosion created files, and they can't be opened in any other program, it may be the "plug in." That is the piece of software required to produce the file. A viewer is also required. If you can open the jpg in another program, that would indicate photo explosion. The plugins that are loaded into the program should be listed, possibly under tools. You can try to update/reload these.

You have not indicated your operating system. This is important to correctly answer more complicated issues. For instance, if you have Vista 32/64 bit, your software has to be compatible and set to the right version. Because Vista is prevalent, I looked to see if it is compatible. Unfortunately, Nova recommended buying an update for the 32 bit version and had no info on the 64 bit. Somewhere on the photo explosion box there should be a small label telling you what it is compatible with. I hope that if this was not helpful you will leave me more info and answers to the above by writing a comment. I can get back to you with more specific advice.
