Windows 7: MS Photo Editor

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

>>This is interesting. For years I just took the 772 kb photoed.exe file and copied it to later desktops.

Well, this sounded simpler to me than the advice of RAS230, but when I tried it, I got an error message which said "No file format information can be found in the Registry". It would not open pictures. (I don't actually have MS Office on the computer.)

Windows 7 Home 64bit

Hello! I believed the trick did not work in Windows 7 64bit, but...
I noticed (thanks to that the system changes the registry keys
for 32bit programs, and you must add after "HKLM\SOFTWARE", this: "\Wow6432Node",
in all keys of your "photoed.reg", for example:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Graphics Filters\Export\
Let's continue this never ending story...
