I would like to install PSE5 on my new PC computer using Windows 7. Is it possible?
Message title was edited by: Brett N
The version which is officially stated as being compatible with Windows 7 is PSE 8. Earlier versions may install fine on Win 7 but they arent certified because those were in the market before Win7.
For specific issues, if any with PSE5, may be other users on the forum can add more..
OK. Thanks a lot.
Many users report PSE5.0.2 working properly under Windows 7
If after installing the 5.0.2 update (required) you have problems (most people don't), try running PSE in XP compatibility mode:
I am running Win7 Premier (64bit) and trying to use PSE 5.02. When I try to start the program I get "Cannot load fastcore routines, file not found" any ideas or help would be appreciated. Thanks
There are things in this thread that seemed to fix the problem on Vista, so maybe it'll work for you on Win 7:
The solutions suggest that some of what PSE needs to run is inaccessible, either because permissions have denied access or that the path to look for them in has changed.
Thank you. I'll let you know if it works
Depending on your version of Windows 7, you may be able to use M$'s "Virtual PC" and Install "XP Mode". This requires Windows 7 Professional, (or better). It cannot be used with Win 7 starter or Win 7 Home Premium. This is a virtual machine solution, and when implemented, you have a full version of Windows XP Pro 32 bit, running in the virtual machine environment.
Some of the problems that you might encounter while using PSE5 and Win7 are that the e-mail client compatibility issues.
I viewed this technology an it stats that it will work on all versions of windows 7. Do you have personnel knowledge that other versions of Win7 will not work? Respectfully submitted always.
