How come I cannot reinstall Microsoft Picture It after uninstalling it?

by on February 26, 2009

Q: I had to remove Microsoft Picture It 7 from my computer. I did a search and remove everything related to it. I have the disc and am trying to reinstall Microsoft Picture It. When I insert the disc in the drive, it starts and asks, Do you want to run Picture It? I click yes and nothing else happens. I also open my computer and the drive and clicked autorun. Still it starts and then nothing. Even copied all the files to my hard drive, clicked autorun and it starts and run (you can hear it) but nothing else happens. My computer is running Windows XP.

    According to my research, Microsoft Picture It is a very old program. Old programs are often unpredictable on newer computers — installing fine in one instance and then failing to install in another.

    To make your system more receptive to reinstalling Microsoft Picture It, I recommend that you run ALL tools in the following FREE programs:

    If Microsoft Picture It still fails to install, I recommend that you consider a newer yet FREE photo program, such as: http://download.live.com/photogallery

    Does this help?
