I found this answer after browsing through countless websites. MY Adobe Photodeluxe now works beautifully on my Windows 7 via Windows Virtual PC on Windows XP mode. It's really far easier than I thought, even for a non-geek like me! Here's how:

If you run Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate version, install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP mode ( and execute your software in Windows XP.   If you run Windows 7 Home Premium, try VirtualBox ( or VMware Player ( or any other 3<sup>rd</sup> party virtualization software and install a separate copy of Windows XP (either Home Edition or Professional) for that purpose.You can find virtualization software free of charge that will run on Windows 7 Home Premium.

Hi there! Even though I am relatively new around here, I have been having great fun with PCs for over two decades now, becoming familiar with Windows through versions 3.x/9x/Me/2000/XP/2003/7/8/10. I enjoy helping others with what I feel is an exciting industry - computers are always changing, improving and offering new opportunities for learning. I look forward to assisting you with questions concerning Windows, how it interacts with your PC Hardware, configuration/settings or just general tips and ideas. Besides troubleshooting questions, feel free to ask the basics, as well. I will always start there, and I firmly believe that there is no such thing as a dumb question - we are all ‘Beginners’ at one time or another!


I am an A+ Certified, Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer with Computer Service Technician and LAN Administration diplomas and over 15 years direct experience with PCs including assembly, troubleshooting/support and upgrading. I have worked for retail outlets, schools and businesses, and have been an Instructor in the past as well – helping others, just like you, understand and enjoy computers!
