Windows 10: Good 'Ol Microsoft Photo Editor - Fix So It Will Run With Windows 10?
Good 'Ol Microsoft Photo Editor - Fix So It Will Run With Windows 10?
I've been using Microsoft Photo Editor for the last 20 years, on literally dozens of computers - needed outside help (from the 7 Forum) for a fix 4-5 years ago, looks like I need it again from the Windows 10 experts.
I upgraded four HP computers from 7 and 8.1 to 10 last weekend with no apparent issues, but one of the 8.1 notebooks (which had the "fixed" version of Photoed.exe installed and worked fine before the upgrade) no longer opens photos with Microsoft Photo Editor, nor will MPE launch by clicking the MPE icon on the desktop. I finally gave up yesterday and downloaded Irfanview, which works fine, but I prefer the simple look and feel of Photo Editor.
Has anyone out there been able to get a "fix" that lets Photo Editor run correctly with Windows 10 after having it fail at the upgrade?
The computer in question is an HP-15T notebook, model 15t-r100, new 6/15/2015, 8GB memory, Intel 4th Gen Core i5-4210U Dual-Core processor, Intel HD Graphics 4400.
A problem may exist in that your Notebook is running the 64-bit version of Windows and as I recall PhotoEditor was only 32-bit [or maybe 16-bit from Win95/98]. Some types of older programs stumble when trying to use on a better computer.
Thanks for the response - I'll double-check that. As I recall, it was running the 64-bit version of the "fix".
If the program was originally on the Win7 computer it most likely was/is the 32-bit version as only the Pro version of Win7 as available was either 32-bit or 64-bit depending upon the hardware.
Thanks - it was originally on the computer with Windows 8.1 (64-bit) before the W10 upgrade.
