PLEASE HELP !! Picture It 2000 and Windows Vista and windows expl

P: n/a
Can anyone help me? I need to use picture it 2000 every day and use to use
it on Windows XP and had NO problems at all. If I would open up windows
explorer i could be in my folder that has all of my picture it files in
there, .mix files and even though they were not jpegs etc.. windows explorer
would show the thumbnail of all of these projects saved so i could quickly
look for something and double click to open. Since installing Windows
Vista, the Picture It 2000 still works great , except now upon opening up
windows explorer, i can see thumbnails of any format BUT the picture it
files! I do not understand why an older version of windows could handle
viewing these as thumbnails but the newer vista can not. It is quite
inconvenient now to have to actually open the picture it program and go
through there to search for files when i use to be able to just see
everything I had in one page in windows explorer with the thumbnails. I
really like the look of Vista and after paying for it would hate to have to
take it out and put XP back on again just because of this. I've searched all
folder and settings etc and can find nothing to help.

I can't help you, but at least you have it downloaded on your pc. I've been
trying for a week to install picture it 2000 on mine and it stops half way
through and hangs there. I loved that program and it worked great on XP, but
I can't install it on Vista. Good luck.

I have xp and vista on my computer as a dual boot system. I thought for sure
I was going to have to revert back to using XP because of not being able to
use picture it at all at first. It kept shutting down after trying to open..
files not being recognized by the program. But after sifting through vista
looking for anything to change I cant quite remember all i did but one of
them definitely was turning off windows defender. I can now use the program,
but if the .mix files are associated with the program, still do not
understand why windows explorer in XP can allow us to see the .mix files like
any thumbnail as if it were a jpeg, but yet will not allow you to in Vista..
takes me twice as long to locate things now without being able to just
quickly skim in explorer.
