If its the 64 bit version of windows 7 then no 16 bit program will run. You'd need to install and use xp mode (which is now available for all versions of windows 7 i believe).

I think you should consider upgrading to a newer version of that software. Version 6 is the latest. That puts you 5 versions out. Look at the link below for comparisons between 4,5,6.

You can also find older versions for sale cheap.

Thanks Steve, actually I'm only assuming it's 16 bit because why else would the installer not work? However a number of the DLLs have 32 in their filenames, which gives me faint hope that it may just be the installer that is the problem. Do you or does anybody know how many bits 1.1 actually is?

Thanks for trying but that didn't help, I have downloaded the HAV detection tool but it won't work until I get my internet connection sorted.

I found an article that referred to ulead iphoto express. The article is dated 1997. So, your version is at least that old. Intended to run under Win95 I would guess.

What is the latest version of Windows you have run that program on?

If it ran under WinXP then you should be able to get it working by using a compatibility mode.

Go to Control Panel> Action Center. Choose Windows Program Compatibility Troubleshooter. Follow the onscreen prompts.

Thanks but I have done that, including the different service pack options, but no go. Puzzling isn't it.

describe how you did it? The steps taken. The troubleshooter is a little confusing.

I too am a fan of the original iPhoto, it has all the tools one needs really. Because it's 16-bit, it won't run directly on my 64-bit Win7 so I installed Sun Virtual Box with XP Mode. It runs there albeit with a few minor problems, but it's a hassle to have to load Virtual Box. If anyone knows a shareware editor with features similar to iPhoto, please post software name here.
