From what I have been reading it does not look like that will run under Win7 X64. You will have to purchase a newer version.

Kind hard to tell.

The windows 7 compatibility site doesn't have that exact version. Some other versions they claim the maker of PS offers some sort of upgrade (I assume for some money).


The problem is any 16 bit components in the application. From installer to the dll's could stop this from working.

I think that it won't work on 64 bit so your choice is to
convert to a 32 bit version of Windows 7 (not a great choice)
Install a free virtual machine and run some older version of Windows in 32 bit.
See about an upgrade of the app.
Get a supported version.
Get an free open source version.
Dual boot with an older windows version, (not a great idea either)

Text, talk, drive...CRASH.

Hang up and drive @#$%^^
