No. They went out of business. Thats why the software is free and downloadable.

What is the problem with the program? Does it not install? Does it not run after it's installed? You can try running the installation and/or running the program in 'Compatibility Mode'.

Right-Click on the installation file or the program shortcut
Click 'Properties'
Click the Compatibility tab
Place in check-mark against 'Run this program in compatibility mode for
Select 'Windows XP (Service Pack 3)' from the drop-down list
Click 'Ok'
Now run the installation or run the program again to see if the problem has been eliminated.

Yes I tried, even adding Admin. status Win XP SP 3. Still will not install.

The version of this file is not compatible with the version of widows you're running. Check your computers system information to see whether you need an x86 (32bit) or 64x (64 bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.

Like I said the company is no longer in business, so I can't contact them. See if you can down load and install. Maybe its just me or my puter.

Ah, now I have a better understanding of the situation. Being that PhotoGenetics (a 32-bit program) went out of business in 2002 I think you're only hope is running a virtual XP environment.

I have no personal experience working with it but this this is a great tutorial I found online. Very detailed. Note, you will need to have either Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate in order to use Windows XP mode. If you have Windows 7 Home Premium for example, you will need to upgrade to one of the Windows 7 versions mentioned above.

I have 7 Ultimate. I will give it a try. If it doesn't work, I guess, I'll either give up, or get a seconf unit running with XP to use it in 32 bit mode. Thanx for all your help.

Didn't work. I give up. I was looking for a program that will clean up pictures, and clairify them. Also take a negative scan it and be able to get a good photograph from it.

I'm sorry to hear that. There are alternative photo editing programs you try. Picasa is such a free program.
