Paint Shop Pro 8 crashing on Windows 7

    I'm using Paint Shop Pro 8 on a Windows 7 Professional 64 bit machine. It keeps
    crashing on
    me and I've noticed that the problem seems to occur when I'm using the crop
    tool. Is PSP 8 supposed to be compatible with Windows 7, and any idea what could
    be causing this problem? Thanks.

    You won't find any "full details" on this abandoned product. The only
    thing you will find is the 8.10 update. If that's what he already has,
    there's no point in visiting the Corel site.

    Oops you're not allowed to ask any question on any NG without someone
    telling you to Google it. Didn't you know that? LOL.... it probably takes
    less time for them to type the one word answer you need.
    I'm using PSP 9 on my new Win7 box and it works flawlessly, and runs
    much faster than ever before.

    I haven't a clue why it does that.
    I have read that version 7 works on Windows 7, so I would assume that 8
    works too.
    Try re-installing the program or upgrade to PSP9 or higher, although I can't
    recommend PSPPX3, but it depends on what you use it for.
    I use PSPPX2 without any problems.
    Everything runs a lot faster on a Windows 7 machine :)

    I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and I have PSP 5 installed and running
    without
    any problems. I also have PSP 7 installed, also running without problem,
    but I like
    PSP 5 better for reasons having nothing to do with compatibility.

    I don't know why you are having problems, but one thing I would suggest
    trying is
    running the program with the "Troubleshoot reliability" option. Locate
    psp.exe in
    Explorer (C:/Program Files (x86)\Paint Shop Pro 5\Psp.exe by default),
    right click
    to bring up the context menu and select "Troubleshoot reliability." This
    only has to
    be done once, not every time PSP is run.

    Where? Paint Shop Pro 8 was released when Microsoft's most recent OS
    was XP, and the product was sold to Corel before Vista or Win7 were
    released. I don't believe there was any official mention of OS support
    for that product after about 2003.

    Corel's current "Paint Shop Pro" product has little or nothing in
    common with the classic Jasc product. Any published system requirements
    for the current product would not apply to PSP8.

    No problems at all? I've heard that there are some printing issues,
    and I know that PSP9 is incompatible with Aero. It works OK, but not
    flawlessly.

    Or run it in compatibility mode for Windows XP or some other version
    prior to 7. Right click on the exe file and choose Properties,then the
    Compatibility tab.

    Corel still supports 8. Have you been to the Corel website?

    "Support" in what way? They have its one update available for download,
    and host a user-supported web forum. Otherwise, you're wrong - Corel
    specifically DOESN'T support anything except the current and previous
    versions of their programs.

    Irrelevant.

    I don't know what Paint Shop Pro is compatible with. It has crashed on all
    platforms on various computers that I have tried it on - finally gave up on
    it.

    !?!

    I can't imagine what you've been doing wrong. I've been running Paint
    Shop Pro on Win98, Win2000, XP, Vista, and Win 7, and it's almost never
    crashed at any time on any platform. It's always been extremely stable.

    Me, too. In fact, I am using the same Paint Shop Pro (version 5) program
    on 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate that I ran on Windows 98. The only thing I
    can think of that might cause problems would be the video card and/or
    driver.

    I moved also my Paint Shop Pro 8 to Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit,
    but it runs fine.
