A reader wrote to me last week who has upgraded to Windows 7 and now cannot run MGI PHOTOSUITE 4. It seems every time he tries to do so, he gets a script error message.
MGI PHOTOSUITE 4's compatibility with Windows 7 is questionable. Some people report being able to use it without problems, whereas others can't get it to work at all.
The solution is to try to run the program using Windows compatibility settings, and to turn off Aero while the program is running. To do so:
- Click Start > All Programs, navigate to the shortcut for MGI PHOTOSUITE 4 and right-click on it.
- Choose Properties from the pop-up menu.
- Click on the Compatibility tab.
- Tick Run this program in compatibility mode for and choose Windows XP (Service Pack 3) from the drop-down menu.
- Tick the options Disable visual themes and Disable desktop composition.
- Click OK.
Configure options on the Compatibility tab
Try re-running the program, and hopefully it will work without problems.
