Win 7 Ultimate 32bit

My bet is that,, TextBridge is just so old it probably doesn't support Visualization at all.

I am not sure if any OCR apps would.

OR, and possibly more likely, it is checking the Version of Windows and not seeing the correct version.

ie. Install of Windows XP will be different than XP Mode.
So the app checks, sees something that is not right with the version, and terminates.

This is an issue with older apps. When everyone converted over to XP, people started wrting with Version checking, so that apps that were not compatible with 98SE, it wouldn't install, rather than installing and having support calls about it not working and vice versa.

This is practice that has been abandoned (thankfully) for the most part.
