Well done. I haven't been through all the detail but wonder what step(s) made the difference - unregistering the OCX's first maybe, particularly IMGEDIT.OCX.

Posts are marked as solved when you select a Best Answer. However my personal opinion is that in this instance you are the one that deserves it. Although you cannot select yourself for Best Answer, I believe the mods usually pick up these situations eventually and do so on your behalf. So you either select someone, or sit tight and wait for the reminders to stop (they will).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Exactly what product are you trying to install and what instructions did you follow. Please provide a link.

IF that's an old 16 bit program (not sure) then it will never run on a 64 bit computer unless you use some sort of virtual machine.

32 bit computers can also handle 16 bit.
64 bit computers can also handle 32 bit

Maybe if you let us know the features you are after there could be an alternative program. This sort of thing perhaps:

Obviously, this guy over at the initial link has managed to install and run it on Win7 64 bit.

I need this software because it is TMK the only program in the world that can print images pixel-to-pixel on an arbitrary printer:

From what I remember the Kodak Imaging software was 32 bit and licensed to Microsoft for inclusion with Windows 98 and Windows 2000. It has not been included in Windows since then. I tried it on Windows 98 but wasn't impressed.

stuntmaster may well have successfully installed the software on x64 Windows 7, although we have no proof of that. But there are any number reasons why this no longer works. He may have had a different version of the software or a Windows Update or Service Pack may have broken compatibility. I expect few people would have noticed. In any event he has not posted on this forum for more than 4 years.

Thanks. The thing is that Imaging for Windows is now being distributed by "Alliancegroup":

http://www.alliancegroup.co.uk/imag...

...who charge £120 for a copy :(

And this "new" Imaging for Windows (which is EXACTLY the old Kodak Imaging as it always has looked) also does run on Win7 64bit (on my machine).

OK, I didn't spot the 64 in the detail. So presumably it's a 32 bit program.

Have you a Windows 98 computer or the files he mentioned? If so we can run through how to do it.

Can't vouch for the procedure obviously - looks like it was from someone who just posted it on here for information.

I have all the files and exactly followed those instructions -- but the EXE still does nothing when started.

Well if you did it all as given then we're a bit stuck. That idea was just from someone who cruised in during 2011- we know nothing more about it. Probably it isn't working due to hardware and/or software differences between his computer and yours.

This is a long shot but has worked on occasions for others.

Try using compatibiy mode:

Presumably you installed it into 32 bit "Program Files (x86)". This and that previous post seem to be the only reference to a definite fix for this so I doubt we are going to be able to progress it further.

Actually the program gets installed in the SysWoW64 folder according to the instructions.

Oh yes, OK then. I didn't spot the exe at the top (program file). It's an unusual place but it seems that worked for him.

Thanks guys for your patience.

This kept my trying and trying. What I've done now, I've followed the additional instructions here:
http://www.techrepublic.com/forums/...

...especially the unregistering/registry cleaning part.

Afterwards, I re-registered the four OCX files (in SysWoW64)
IMGADMIN.OCX
IMGEDIT.OCX
IMGSCAN.OCX
IMGTHUMB.OCX

...using the well kown "Register and Unregister Context Menu" hack (for convenience):
http://www.eightforums.com/tutorial...

Now the ancient Kodak Imaging program runs fully functional and beautifully on Win7 64bit -- even without any compatibility settings made:

Thanks again

One more observation about running Imaging on Win7 x64, with the original program name, when double clicked, the cursor would go busy for a moment and that was it. Same from the command line. After I renamed it, the program runs. And setting it to be the default .tif program seems to work fine now. I presume windows is trying to block the program.
