PSP X1 - Vista - won't run

PSP X1 - Vista - won't run

PSP X1 - Vista - won't run

Yesterday I found that PSP X won't run under Vista (see my previous thread).  Thinking that this was a reasonable excuse to upgrade to PSP XI I visited the Corel site and bought the upgrade.

Now I have two versions of PSP which won't run, but at least PSP XI goes one better, it starts a process that consumes almost 100% of my CPU cycles, I have to use Task Manager to stop it.

I downloaded and installed the latest graphics drivers, thinking that would be a solution, what a waste of time, makes no difference at all.

Could this be the perfect opportunity to learn Photoshop?  That would be a pity as I've been with PSP since version 4.  

Can somebody offer even a glimmer of hope that maybe a future version of PSP will work with Vista?

RE: PSP X1 - Vista - won't run

Hi !  
I can give you hope.  
I am using X1 on Vista.  I had a load of problems getting started.  Contact Corel support by email.  They were extremely helpful getting my X1 working.  I still get a pop up that wants me to upgrade to X2 but I ignore it.

(for my installation) One of the steps will be the complete removal of all previous versions of PSP.  I lost the ability to play with animated .gifs

Photoshop is a nice program if you have the desire to learn it. It is powerful but difficult to learn. I am happier with Paint Shop Pro.

Good Luck !
