What is the name of the photo editing software?

Have you tried Compatibility Mode?

Also, what edition of Windows 7 are you running?

Well, it looks like Photostudio 4.1 is only supported up to XP.

What edition of Windows 7? You gave me bit. I'm looking for Home Premium, Pro, Ultimate, etc...

Please note the difference between the WINDOWS Virtual PC that ONLY runs XP mode in Pro or Ultimate editions of Windows 7 and the MICROSOFT Virtual PC that can be used in any Windows OS to create any VM. Most people don't know that these two programs are different.

So you still could potentially install XP in a regular virtual machine, and run your photo editing software in it.....or you could just buy some new software. Your choice. :huh:
