    Question How can I get Photo Story 3 to run on Windows 7 ?

    How can I get Photo Story 3 to run on Windows 7 ? Changing Compatibility Mode in its installer also did not help. Any ideas if it can be done?

    If your system supports it get Windows XP Mode or you can try out Windows Essentials.

    Some folks said to use the installer from here but no luck for me.

    Everything I've read says that it doesn't install on Windows 7 If you find a solution I'd like to know.

    I'm fine with VirtualBox and now that Sun fixed the Compiz-Fusion bug in the latest beta of 3.1 I'm ecstatic. Well close anyway.

    Compiz-Fusion bug? But this was not a Windows request?

    I prefer VMLite because it's born to be a Windows XP Mode for common users.

    VirtualBox had a compiz-fusion bug with Linux clients running on a Windows host. It 's fixed now.

    With the current lack of 2d/3d acceleration in VMLite the faster and more stable choice might be VirtualBox, XP Mode, Virtual PC, or VMWare while VMLite goes through the process of implementing features.

    Windows XP Mode for common users? It's a nice slogan but I have no idea what that is supposed to mean. VMLite is born from the source code of VirtualBox OSE. I'm not sure how the core technology is any different.

    Either way this is off topic so I'll drop it.

    I forward your problem to my MVP colleague Vijay Raj, who has been awarded MVP in field of Microsoft Windows Installer.

    VJ Says:
    "This version is not compatible with Windows 7. This product is exclusively made for XP. I did try to edit the msi to find the condition details. There are few Custom Actions, which are written which checks for Windows XP explicitly. Further, as it is not an exe, even compatibility shims cannot be applied. The only option I see is running in Virtual XP Mode. This article has information on How Virtual XP mode is - http://www.msigeek.com/appcompat-ser...rtual-xp-mode/ "
    I hope you may find it useful.

    You might also want to consider making a Photo Story-style slideshow using Windows Live Movie Maker. It's easier than ever now.

    And of course XP Mode or any sort of VM will do the job just fine.
