You do not need Virtual PC, Virtual XP or any add-ons. Simply find and right click the the MGI setup file, check the run in compatibility mode as Windows XP SP2 and install. After install, send a program launch shortcut to your desktop, right click, go to properties and check the Windows XP compatibility mode once again. Finally, while you still have the compatibility screen open add a tick check to Run As Administrator. Hey presto my beloved MGI Photosuite is back! MGI is fantastic for being user friendly and simple, and although I know other users insist there are better programs, Iíve tried loads and I still think itís a winner.
    Thanks so much Del I followed your directions and I too have my photo suite back. Love the program so easy to use. Many thanks

    Default Wow! At last!

    Thank you so much! I've been doing my nut trying to get my PhotosuiteIII to work on Windows 7. I do use other programs but each has its own strengths and weaknesses and I do find this version of PS better than any other.
