    Mgi Photosuite 4 On Windows 10

    I am aware that many folks loved Photosuite and I am one of them. I got it to work on Windows 7 after IE11 was released. I now have it running on Windows 10 with one exception. I cannot add text to my photos. This is not a big deal for me because I am more inclinsed to use the Tools in the suite to touch-up photos. Here is how I did it: 1. Start Windows 10 in Safe Mode 2. insert CD into optical drive and install the program 3. After restarting the computer go to the MGI folder, delete the Reg.dll 4. Go to MGI folder, right click the .exe file, choose Properites/Compatibility and choose Windows XP SP2. Let me know it works for you. It's great having the program work (for the most part) and maybe one of you can add a fix to the (adding text) to photos.

    Photosuite 4 Problem

    @ Smith. Just a suggestion. Norton is a resource hog, as well as several other pay-for anti-viruses. I'd like to suggest AVG Free 2013, Avast Free 2013 or Microsoft Security Essentials (free as well). Also use the free anti-malware software Malwarebytes. Do an update and a Quick Scan once a week. You'll be very well covered with any combination of the three anti-viruses I mentioned and Malwarebytes. However, never run two anti-virus programs at the same time. All are available at www.downloads.com

    Photosuite 4 Problem

    Hello Everyone. I have good news for you. I do this stuff for a living and I still prefer MGI-4 over all the other programs that have been mentioned in this post. Here is your solution for being able to use MGI-4 in Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit). The problem is IE10. MGI-4 needs IE's engine to work properly and the new engine in IE10 is not compatible with MGI-4. Simply go into your Control Panel/Programs and Features/View Windows Updates (upper left side of window) and find IE10. Once you find it, right click on it and uninstall it. You will be asked to restart your computer. When you launch IE, you will now see IE9. Voila! MGI-4 will work perfectly again. IMPORTANT: Go to Windows Updates manually and click on "check for updates". IE10 will appear in the list. Simply right click on that update and choose "Hide". Now close the Update window and you're all set. IE10 will not install automatically and you will have a full functioning MGI Photosuite 4 image editing suite.
