======================================
No guarantees...but it may be worth a try to run
PhotoDraw in Compatibility mode.

Windows 7 - Make older programs run in this version of Windows

You could try 'Run As Administrator':

Also...if you happen to be running Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate or
Enterprise...you could try Windows XP Mode:
