Photo Explosion Deluxe 3.0 will not open.

I have owned this program for several years, it worked fine until 6 months or so. I orginally got an error MPEG Driver not found. I download a patch for that it work fine up until Friday 7-30-2010, now when I try to open it I get I have tried to go through dianostic startup didn't help. Then I disabled everthing in the start up menu and the services tab in system configuration. This worked for a day then that quit working. Then last night I started my computer in safe mode, that work I used the program with not problems. Today I started it in safe mode again will not open same message "program has stopped working, windows will close program info went to Micro Soft will notify when answer is availble." I have also tried to unload and reload program nothing works. Do you have any more suggestions? I have Vista running on my computer.

Thanks in advance.

Hello tly0717,

In the Windows Vista Compatibilty Center, it doesn't show that Photo Explosion Deluxe is compatible with Windows vista. I suggest you try running it in Compatibility Mode.

If that doesn't help, then I suggest you contact the manufacturer to see if they have any updates or patches that will make it compatible.
