PM6.5 is very old in software years. Read here http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/328/328682.html about what Adobe says.

Realistically, you should either install PM6.5 on a Win2K PC or move to InDesign.

You can create a virtual WinXP with Win7 using Virtual PC, but for PM6.5 it's unproven and an extemely lengthy work around.

I think you can upgrade to a newer more compatable version ......cut and paste this to go to the upgrade page for more info http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/Windows-7/en-us/Details.aspx?type=Software&p=Adobe%20PageMaker&v=Adobe&uid=7&l=en&pf=3&pi=1&os=64-bit

Here is the windows system requirements:
Windows

  • Intel® Pentium® processor
  • Microsoft® Windows NT® 4.0 with Service Pack 6, Windows® 2000 Professional with Service Pack 2, Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
  • 32MB of available RAM (48MB or more recommended)
  • 175MB of available hard-disk space for installation (200MB or more recommended)
  • Video card with 800x600 resolution and 8-bit/256 colors (24-bit, high-resolution display recommended)
  • CD-ROM drive
  • For Adobe® PostScript® printers: Adobe PostScript Level 2 or later

No reason why not (unless it's a 32-bit vx. 64-bit issue).
I bet Adobe has that info on its website.

PMD stands for Adobe PageMaker also called PageMaker Document. You can down load PageMaker free from Adobe. https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?loc=en%5Fus&product=pagemaker Have a Nice day.

Hi there!
Adobe PageMaker Plus 6.5 is for Win2K computers. It is not compatible with Windows 7. I suggest an upgrade of your software to Adobe InDesign, which is compatible with Windows 7.
Hope this helps.

I have Adobe Pagemaker 6.5 and just got Windows 7, and it will not install the program. It is saying an additional file must be available before it can install. This is not Pagemaker Plus... How do I...


I'm afraid you have a problem. Windows 6.5 doesn't run well on Windows XP, and PageMaker 7.0 can't be installed on Windows Vista at all and there is no patch for it, so most likely, your PageMaker 6.5 won't run on Windows 7. Sorry. :(

I'll research a little more and post if I find anything different, but I'm pretty confident that it won't run.

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.

Pagemaker spell checking problem


Pagemaker 7 will not readily allow Spell checking under Windows 7. To do this you will need to run the Pagemaker application as the Administrator. This can either be by clicking on the right hand mouse botton (right handed persons) while the cursor is on the Pagemaker launch icon either on the desktop, Windows Start up menu or Application Program launch menu and then choosing to run the Application as Administrator. Pagemake launched like this will normally allow spell checking, without  the Pagemaker application will return distionary missing or does not support spelling.
Disabling account control in Windows 7 before running the Pagemaker, which I do not recommend also achieves this in Windows 7. All the above applies for Windows Vista too!

Solution for adobe pagemaker 7.0 spell checking problem


For those running Windows Vista, you can enable spell checking in Pagemaker 7 by simply turning off the user account control. This control is what pops up every time you attempt to run a program windows Vista isn't familiar with, asking if you really want to run it.

To turn it off, go to Control Panal, select user accounts and forms, select User Account Control, and in the follow up screen delete the checkmark.

Of course, the account control is there to protect you against unauthorized running of spyware and such. Be sure you have good virus protection!

How to convert Adobe pagemaker 7 to indesign cs3?


Pagemaker to InDesign is not an exact process. You are going to have to put some work into the converted file. The important thing to maintain in PageMaker to make a clean transition, is to make sure the PM file is PRISTINE. All the links in the Links Palette are current, al fonts for the file are loaded. Delete any unused colors, just clean the file up. The more clean the file, the cleaner the transition.
No matter how clean the file is, there are going to be things you are going to HAVE to fix. You are going from an app that has not been supported for over a decade into the latest and greatest, InDesign. Be patient and be glad at least you can get the PM file into something usable instead of having to rebuild it entirely.
Hope this helps.
