Thread: Paint shop Pro and Vista

    Default Paint shop Pro and Vista

    Been using PSP7 on my old computer with XP and it loaded on my new
    laptop with Vista on it with no problem but every time I attempt to do
    anything the programs stops and must be restarted . I'm sure it's the
    old drivers aren't compatible with Vista. Can anyone tell me where to
    get drivers for PSP7 that will work on Vista??

    Hi BJ,

    PSP7 shouldn't need drivers per se to work but you may want to try
    running the program in compatibility mode, find the main program file in
    program files, right click and on the properties choose the
    compatibility tab and select XP SP2 and see if that helps, you couls
    also try the same with the shortcut in start menu but it's normally
    better with the .EXE

    Sounds like a reasonable idea, but I must not be finding the correct
    file, because I do not find a "compatibility" tab under PSP8 properties.
    I must be looking in the wrong place! I've searched every place I know
    and nowhere do I find a "compatibility "tab". I remember seeing it in my
    old XP computer but not in Vista.

    Hi,

    The compatibility tab would be on the properties of either the program
    executable or a shortcut to it.

    PSP7 works fine here without a hiccup. Always has.

    It doesn't use "drivers".

    Hi BJ,

    Find the program shortcut in start menu or on desktop, right click on
    this and choose properties, the compatibility tab should be 3rd from
    left, select the mode you want from the drop down box. You may also want
    to try "run as Administrator" near the bottom of the dialogue.

    To find the original file (the .EXE) from the properties of the
    shortcut, the secons tab is the "shortcut" tab on here should be an
    "open File Location Button this will allow you to find the .exe

    I have noticed that certain applications (E.G. Adobe Reader) do not
    show a shortcut tab. in this case you can try the right click "run as
    Administrator option and see if that improves things. it would then be a
    case of manually finding the .EXE. to adjust it's properties. You may
    need to take ownership of the EXE file to change it

    Hope this helps

    You do not look in Program files for the .exe
    You have the .exe you install it.

    WOW! I must have a bastardized program because when I open "Properties"
    I get 4 tabs, "General,, "Shortcut", "Security" and "Details". I have
    gone through each and nowhere do I find "Compatibility"!!

    Well, I don't know what to say now, except that I went back into it
    after doing nothing and tried again, and it worked beautifully -- three
    times!! I thought it was fixed, then on the fourth try it turned on me
    again and and is back to it's old tricks!! Now I can't duplicate the
    problem consistently!! Every time it happens I must shut down and
    reboot!! Great fun!!

    I run the same identical programs on my alternate computer,running XP
    and have for about three years with never a glitch!! I have duplicated
    the steps precisely, side by side - and the old one (XP) still performs
    beautifully without fail, while the new one (Vista) either gags every
    time or is inconsistent -- so I am convinced it's a Vista problem!!! Not
    interested in hearing any more about how wonderful Vista is!! If this
    were the first problem I had with Vista, I might be a little more
    considerate, but it's not - it;s just been one thing after another, and
    I'm sick of it!!!!

    Thanks for your efforts to help-- I really appreciate it !
