Windows 7: Windows Photo Gallery on Windows 7 x64?

Windows Photo Gallery on Windows 7 x64?

I know of the Windows Live services. When I couldn't get Windows Photo Gallery from Vista x64 working in Windows 7 x64 I installed the live version of Photo Gallery.

Is there any way to get the old live version of Photo Gallery working in Windows 7 x64? I've tried both the version in Program Files and the version in Program Files (x86). I tried regsvr32 on all the files but that didn't help. When I click the WindowsPhotoGallery.exe nothing happens. I looked in process monitor and I can't see where if anywhere something goes wrong.

I know it's possible with Windows Movie Maker from Vista to get it working on Windows 7. Has anyone done that with Windows Photo Gallery?

You might have to run it in Compatibility Mode.

I tried both the x86 and x64 in compatibility mode for Vista and Vista SP2 but it didn't change anything.
