OK, but the prior poster was able to get it working. There is something that we are missing.

You're using 32bit, and then you say BUT your full version came with 32 and 64, that's fine which did you install and did you upgrade or clean install. Just a couple of very important questions.

I agree. At this juncture the clean install question is very important.

Ya Rich there's no reason they should not work if we are talking Apples to Apples

I think it is a simple thing to solve, but we are not getting the information.

If you reinstalled your programs, you did either a clean or custom install. For our purposes it does not make any difference. What I want you to do is this. Go to your computer icon, right click and see if you have 32 bit or 64 bit.

Then I want you to find out if the programs are 32 or 64 bit and if they are compatible with your Bit. Look at the CD or the sleeve that it came in. When you get this information we go to the next step. If you have the time and the patience, I do too. I want this to work.
