Please help - very old version MGI PhotoSuite SE V. 1.05


S

Sandra

I got this very old prg with my first scanner and was able to install and
run it on all the OS I since then used (W95, W98 and Me), but unable to make
it work on XP Home Ed.

Since I really love the prg. I would highly appreciate if anybody could help
me to install it on XP-Home Ed. I saw that XP has an option to try making
older proggies running on XP, and tried this, but with no result.

I have a newer version of the Prg (also got it with a newer scanner), but it
is rubbish, not worth to look at it, compared with the old version. Please
forgive if this is OT. I think it is freeware, but I don't know if it suits
into the categories discussed here...

Thanks in advance,
Sandra

I have it (came with my scanner) and I remember getting it to work in
Windows XP Professional.

I don't think it is freeware, though.

Sandra, you will have much better luck asking your question in one of
the following groups :


Most likely though, your program is simply one of those that doesn't
work with XP. I have a couple of those myself. By the way, apparently
that program has been given away, but you had to fill out a survey at
the site I saw.

Rather than using that old program, why don't you take a look at this site:

http://www.webattack.com/freeware/categories/6/

and see if you can find something better?

Here http://rapidshare.de/files/9966571/mgi_1.06.rar.html is a copy of
MGI PhotoSuite SE V. 1.06. It works just fine on my XP Home box. There
is an ISO image inside the rar file. Just extract the ISO from the rar
and burn it.

I tried to, but it seems that they haven't the download available right
now - clicking on download for free version the following comes up:

"...(If you REALLY need a file, you can try again later or just get a
PREMIUM-Account.)"...

BTW Even if it was available for DL, I don't understand the meaning of the
ISO image inside the rar file and don't understand too, why it should be
burnt? So sorry, but thanks anyway!

Thank you very much for all the suggestions. Maybe it's better leaving such
an old prg behind me and try one of the newer... The webattack-site has some
very nice ones.

Best wishes for a Happy New Year

Hi Sandra,
I have an old MGI PhotoSuite program - double disc - version 8.0 (one is the
content disc and the other is the program disc....)
