Windows 7: MS Photo Editor

12 May 2014   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hmmm, that's really weird, I'll run the file through some different anti virus scans tonight n see what it comes up with. I've never had an issue with it in the past. Perhaps it picked up something from the site I uploaded it to. Any suggestions for a different hosting site?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I scanned the files on and this is what I got for results:
PE 64bit, PE32bit,

I see 1 finding out of 51 on both so I'ma go ahead and say it's coming up as a false positive. I've had PE 64bit installed on my comp and ran McAfee, Norton, Malware Antimalware bytes, and MS Security Essentials and all came back clean. I try to keep my computer pretty clean, toolbar/malware/virus free and I can say I haven't had any issues with these files on my computer.

I tried the download link I posted and it's asking me to download an EXE file which is NOT what I uploaded so ima say I just made a really bad choice in uploaders.. I'll go ahead and post the files on my server for a few days just so you can download it directly from me. Lemme know when you get it.

Windows 8.1 64-bit

Hi, D -

It downloaded fine, I read the "readme" file, followed the instructions, and HOORAY! Microsoft Photo Editor is working great again on my 64-bit Windows 7 laptop! Didn't have to mess with the Registry patch - I've been into computers since my first IBM PC in 1981, and learned a long time ago to leave the Registry alone.

Thanks again for your help - until I stumbled on this Forum (from a Google search on "Windows 7 Photo Editor"), I was getting ready to give up and go to Irfanview or some other viewer; now I don't have to! :)

Windows 8.1 64-bit

Just thought I'd update my issue - I replaced my previous W7 notebook with a new HP Envy 17" notebook with Windows 8.1 64-bit about a month ago, and tried an original installation of Photo Editor from the Office 97 CD; the installation went fine, and Photo Editor works exactly as it should under Windows 8.1. I'm keeping the "fix" in case Photo Editor and W8.1 forget how to play nice together in the future, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the MPE/W8.1 combination works. :)

Hi DStealth,

I've been trying to find file you uploaded all over the internet, but no joy. Could you post a link to your new upload. Would really appreciate it.

Thanks again,

Works great in Win7 x64, but installing the reg patch in x64 breaks it again... Good work & many thanks!

I downloaded the Photo Editor for Win 7 64 bit successfully from this link. It took a few seconds and seemed to download fine. Then went to the file where it landed and clicked to run it. It gave me the security warning and asked it I wanted to run anyway. I clicked Yes. There was a flicker but apparently nothing happened because I can't find it in my list of programs. EDIT: NEVER MIND. I FOUND IT UNDER MICROSOFT TOOLS. THANKS! PHOTO ED IS BACK AFTER TWO YEARS.

Windows Photo Editor Problem
Hello! I've been editing photos with Windows Photo Editor for a long time. I open a photo in Windows Photo Gallery and then, at the top, on the right, I click on the " Edit, Organize, or Share " tab and my opened photo, along with the rest of the photos in the folder would load up in the editor....
