Two questions...

1.  Will this CD work with Windows 7 64?

2.  Are the newer versions better?

Thanks

1.)  It's "iffy".  Since it was intended for Windows 98 (I think) which is DOS based, all you can do is try. IF it will install, then run in Windows98 or ME compatibility mode. If it won't run, you can always uninstall it. No harm in trying. You can also try various Virtual Machine programs, but it can be a pain to get them to run properly, and it is hit or miss if it will run properly if you can get it to load.

I have an old Windows 98 box that I keep running just for nostalgia and old DOS games that are a riot to play. Again, some of these games can be coaxed to run in a virtual machine, but there are random crashes, some will only run in a small box on the screen, colors and effects are warped or weird at various places, and so forth.

2.)  Of course, the newer versions will be better. More tools, more options, etc. and are coded for NTFS.

Thanks for the reply.  One thing I noticed right away is that the red eye fix on new versions is one click, vs. the multi-step

process in Elements 1.0.1, so presumably the other functions are easier as well in the newer versions.

I've never used compatibility mode.

I'm trying to clear out old hardware and software, as I have no other legacy machines that have a cd drive.
