Photoimpact crashes on loading... having worked fully

Post by Neil23 »

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help.

My partner has a Windows 10 64 bit desktop computer

All was working fine with computer etc until yesterday when she downloaded some new photo editing software acdsee (ACDSee Photo Software - Photo Editing, Photo Management, Photo Editor, Digital Photography, Digital Asset Management, DAM) to see how the software compared with Photoimpact (which is/was currently installed).

The acdsee downloaded and installed and opened etc but the software was unsatisfactory in terms of usage.
Then couldn't open Photoimpact...
The acdsee software was then removed.
Photoimpact still not working
Uninstalled Photoimpact X3 and reinstalled but Photoimpact won't load beyond the initial loading screen... 'initialising, loading, main window components etc... the crashes - it was working fine before yesterday and has been used for many months no problem...

Help anyone?

Firstly, PIX3 is not compatible with Windows 10. I know you can install and use it but it's not successful. It would seem to me that you could have removed something when uninstalling ACDDSee that was also use by PIX3. Do you have CCleaner? If you do, use it to clean up your registry and PC. If you don't have it, you can download it from here: https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download
Reboot your PC, try to install PIX3 again. Let me know how you go.
