PSE 5 will not run in Windows 7?

I recently upgraded from Windows Vista 32 bit to Windows 7 64 bit - I reinstalled PSE 5 but now it will not run.
I get the following errors:
- Could not load the FastCore Routines module because the file could not be found.
- Could not load the MMXCore Routines module because the file could not be found.
- Could not load the Multiprocessor Support module because the file could not be found.
- Could not initialize Photoshop Elements because the file could not be found.
- The action you have requested could not be completed because the application is not responding. It may still be loading or waiting for a response from you.
I searched for the errors on the forums and found the common responses that the 5.0.2 update needed to be installed. I installed the update but it hasn't fixed the problem.
I also saw that many people had managed to run it using compatibility mode - I have tried running it in Windows Vista/SP1/SP2, Windows XP etc but nothing likes it.
Can anybody please help? I had absolutely no problems with this software before and I'm half tempted to buy PSE 10 (which I can't afford to do) just to save me the hassle.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Laura,
Since you've uninstalled and re-installed PSE5, we have to assume that those files are in the correct location.  If someone here has PSE5 installed, it would be nice if they can confirm that.
The next thing to try is disabling Data Execution Prevention (DEP) for the editor:
Use Start...Control Panel...System.
On the left, select "System Protection".
Select the "Advanced" tab.
Click the "Settings" button in the "Performance" section.
Click on the "Data Execution Prevention" tab.
Use the bottom radio button ("Turn on DEP...except those I select").
Click the "Add" button, then browse to the
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 5\PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe"
Make sure that the editor's file has a check in its box, and do "OK" to back out of all the dialog boxes.

  • My office professional will not run with windows 8.1

    my office professional will not run with windows 8.1 It ran fine on 7 and 8 but not 8.1

      Microsoft Windows 8.1 officially supports all currently supported Microsoft Office versions including Office 2013 / 2010 / 2007 / 2003 , and may be even earlier versions unofficially. I use Microsoft Office Professional Plus on my Windows 8.1 and it runs fine with no issues.   Could you try what has already been suggested by others including Big_Dave and reinstall Microsoft Office with complete reboot/restart  between uninstall/new installation <restart, not shut down and start over>. If this doesn't work, please post again if installation went fine, what exactly is the error code (if any), what is the problem exactly, any screenshots ?

  • ITunes 10 will not run on Windows 7, 64 bit

    I have upgraded to itunes 10 and now it will not run. In task manager the process is running but no programme. i uninstalled all itunes, quick step, bonjour and apple folders. Then tried a clean instal of itunes 10. Still didn't work. Uninstalled again and reloaded v 9.2 and it works. Tried disabling bonjour and ran the instal of 10 again and it still doesn't work. This is becoming a major pain as I am stuck on v9.2.

    Try installing the version 10 again so we can check on a few other characteristics of the problem, seeoh.
    (1) Does your QuickTime Player launch, or do you get an error message of some kind when you try to launch that?
    (2) Try (by way of experiment) disabling the BonJour Service.
    In your Start Menu, right-click Computer and select "Manage".
    Expand "Services & Applications".
    Open "Services". (Maximise the window to better see what's going on.)
    Right-click the BonJour Service and select "Properties". In the "General" tab, set Start-up type to "Disabled".
    Restart the PC, and try launching iTunes again. Does it launch this time?

  • BB Desktop Software 6.1 will not run on Windows 7 64-Bit

    I wrote to the forum of my problem, and a nice person here told me that I may be having the same problem as others and to repost my question to this link
    I went there and cannot find a button to tick to post to that page, so I went one back and posted my problem in hopes of finding help. BB4matt even told me what my laptop is.  A Genuine Windows 7 home Premium 64 bit Operating System, and that Desktop 6.1 will not run on this system, to copy my problen to the above link, (which I couldn't figure out how to do) or start a new one under the heading I used, that I MIGHT attract a guru of sorts, BB Tech Advisor, ViciousFerret. MR FERRET, please help!
    Thank you all so much in advance once again! (Below is my original plea for help.)
    I have read in these forums and am still lost.  I know my answer should be in hre somewhere, but if it is I am unable to understand it, so be patient as I may be reasking an already answered question.
    I try to be a good lil girl and follow forum rules, but am lost here.
    I bought a new laptop, a Dell 17R  It runs Win 7 I think. Lots of ROM/RAM.  I dowloaded the desktop program from bb dot com and cannot get it to work.  First it asked me to trouble shoot, and reconfigured the DT prog for Win XP.
    It then acknowledged my Torch and dld my photos.  Then it decided I didn't have space and undid whatever it did.
    NOW I cannot get the program, once it opens to recognise my phone at all! ACK!!
    I need someone who understands this gobbltygook to explain to me what to do.  I need to unload my photos, as I use my phone to take pix more than I would have thought.
    I am a photog, and it's better than my first digital this Torch 9800 is, and video quality, OMG, but the vids are too big to upload from the phone..........(IDK why cuz it did at Christmas?)
    Anyway, please help me here, as I can use a computer, e-mail, Facebook, Picassa, other than that, IDK too much about them.  (It took my YEARS to spring for this laptop)
    Thank you in advance for your patience.

    I have the same issue.  It gets to a desktop manager picture and just freezes.

  • Firefox will not run on Windows 8.1

  • JDeveloper will not run in Windows NT 4.0

    I have installed Oracle 9i Developer Suite (latest download) many times on a Windows NT 4 machine. JDeveloper just will not start!
    I get the same error every time: "Unable to find main class. Class specified is: oracle/ideimpl/IdeMain"
    I installed the same download on a Windows 2000 machine. JDeveloper starts up fine, no problem. So why won't JDeveloper work on Windows NT 4? Service Pack 6a is installed.
    Richard Brown

    We've got Jdev versions including latest running on NT fine.
    Make shortcut of where you installed Jdev/jdev/bin/jdevw.exe and
    copy that shortcut to your desktop. That's it, beyond unziping "with directory's"
    onto some drive you have space on.
    Maybe Jdev's dir structure was lost when you unziped, or you're launching the
    wrong bin/<thing> ??
    Good luck,

  • PSE 8 will not run on my mac

    Hi there,
    I have installed PSE 6 orignially and it would not run.  I tried the fixes suggested by adobe, but no success.
    I use PSE for my PC with much success.
    I have now tried to install the new version PSE 8 on my mac in hopes that the glitches have been fixed, but apparently not!
    When I click to start the program, it shuts down at the open window as it says, "Initializing shared components".
    Anyone have the same difficulty or any suggestions.

    Hi there,
    I don't know where to look for the Editor application - can you guide me through.
    >>> Ankush Ved <[email protected]> 08/23/10 11:01 AM >>>
    Can you please try deleting the older preferences and then launch PSE?
    For this, double click on the Editor application, at the same time, press the following keys together: Option + Command + Shift
    Let us know if it does any good.

  • Version 5 upgrade will not run on windows vista home but version 3 runs perfectly

    download installs but Mozilla will not connect to google. reinstalling version 3

    i forgot the exact text of the original error message, but it was looking for a *.dll that was not there - as if the install had not completed.
    tried re-installing & it would stop in the middle of the download with a completely different error message - i was going to screen grab it, but then i got it to work!
    Anyway, after uninstalling everything related to iTunes, emptying my recycle bin, cleaning up a bunch of unnecessary files, and stopping some programs that were running in the background (using task manager) - i did a complete re-install from the Apple iTunes website & it worked fine.

  • IDVD burned disc will not run on Windows Media Player

    I've just started using iDVD for my portfolio of images that I want to leave with employers at interviews. I thought iDVD would be great. I just burned a sample disc and it played fine on my mac (photos are a little fuzzy) but when I play the DVD on Windows it just says that it's an "unknown DVD."
    HELP. I want to make a DVD of slideshows that can be played on any computer or DVD player. How can I do this?

    Thanks Sue-
    I'm still new to finding ways to be Mac and Windows compatible. (I've been using Mac since the Apple IIc came out in the late '80's and have only been using Windows for a few years at the office.) I have Parallels running on my Mac Book Pro which has a Superdrive. I would think that the Windows side in Parallels would be able to access the Superdrive as a DVD. Maybe not. I should look into this. Meanwhile I will look over the link that you suggested, as I only have about 60 slides to onto a disc. Maybe a CD would work.

  • ITunes will not run on Windows 7 unless "run as Admin" is selected

    I have been running iTunes in Windows 7 for a long time, then about 2 weeks ago, it stopped running, I double click the icon and it just hangs then nothing happens... I read through posts and found one that said to try running as admin, I tried it and it did run and I was able to use it. However I cannot run my TuneUp Companion in this mode and a message pops up telling me so.
    In other words, the workaround is fine, just to run it in an emergency, but it is not by any means the preferred mode.
    Please HELP!!!

    Did you try uninstalling iTunes along with all of its components first?

  • LabVIEW program will not run on Windows 2000

    I need to run parts of a LabVIEW program on a PC which does not contain all the hardware required to run the full version. This used to work on Windows 95/98 but on Windows 2000 I get error message 'Capabilty not supported. VI was stopped at node 0x1BC of subvi "Out"'. This program is very large and full of references of this type, is there an easy way around this problem?

    I might be barking up the wrong tree here, but Windows 2000 is built on top of the architecture of Windows NT. Win NT/2000 treats direct memory access differently to Win95/98.
    Have a look at the following link and see if that helps - unfortunately it involves re-writing (well, re-linking) the .vi's that are calling the out The link is in reference to writing to the parallel port through direct memory access, but the .vi's are based on writing to any memory location.
