Question about Adobe Computers & Internet
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.

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.
