Solved MGI on Windows7 install problem from disc

July 14, 2012 at 14:51:59
Specs: Windows 7
I cant get MGI 8 to install from the original disc. Windows 7 just stops the disc before I can do anything to get it to install, let alone work. It worked fine on XPPro, never a problem and great to use.

✔ Best Answer
I do not know what "MGI 8" is but:

It might not be compatible.
Try right clicking on the installer, select Properties. go to the Compatibility tab, and run it as XP compatible. IF the program installs you may also have to do this with the actual program icon (not shortcut) under Computer, C Drive, Program Files, etc. (it will end in .exe).

Depending on just how old the program is, it is possible that the installer uses 16bit code to install the 32bit program. If this is true, it will definitely not work on Windows 7 64bit and very possibly not work om Windows 7 32bit as well. If this program is actually THAT old, you probably should look for a newer alternative to it, possibly free (open source).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

If you mean MGI PhotoSuite it is not compatible with Windows 7

MGI was bought around 2003 by Roxio.........

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

I have MGI PhotoSuite 8.06 installed on 64-bit W 7 in the normal way, not in compatibility mode. PhotoSuite 8.06 works very well on W 7 64-bit. Maybe you should try again by copying the files to an USB flash disk and start the installation from there, but only PhotoSuite 8 application.

P.S. This program was given free for customers who bought a Sony camera in year 2000.
