Hi,

·         Which editor are you trying to run?

When you install older controls on Windows 7, sometimes the controls (dll's or ocx's) don't register because you did not run the setup program as administrator.

Method 1:

I would suggest you to install the program as “Run as administrator” and check if it works.

How do I run an application once with a full administrator access token?

Method 2:

Also try running the editor in Windows Compatibility Mode and check if it helps.

Make older programs run in this version of Windows
