? Registry fix for: MS photo editor won't print w/ WIN XP ..

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.print_fax (More info?)

Subject: MS photo editor won't print w/ WIN XP & Word 2003.
Q. I like to use MS photo editor for editing and printing my digital images.
My company recently provided me with a Dell D800 laptop running WIN XP Pro
and Office 2003. Office 2003 does not come with "MS photo editor" instead it
comes with "windows picture and fax viewer" which has almost no editing
capability. I can still open MS photo editor, because I copied it over to the
new computer, and edit my digital images. But when I try to print I get the
following error "Microsoft Photo Editor has encountered a problem and needs
to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." and must close Photo Editor
to continue. Does anyone know of a way to make Photo Editor work & print in
this environment, like via a registry change. I believe there was an earlier
such change to enable Photo Editor to work fully with Office 2000, not sure
though.
Photo Editor came with Office 97, which I still have. Perhaps I could dual
load Word 97 along with Word 2003 and choose Word 97 when I want to run Photo
Editor? I'm not sure that this would work even if I did this. The
incompatibility is maybe with WIN XP, don't know.
Any help would be appreciated.

    If you merely copied it over and did not install it, it's missing all the
    Registry Entries it needs.

    Find your original Office CDs and install it (through a Custom
    Installation).

    Of course, how did I forget that.
    I installed as you advised, from Office 97, but problem still remains. I am
    thinking it's an incompatibility with WIN XP ??
    What do you think ?

    Actually that's strange, because with my installation of office 2003 on my
    other PC I receive Microsoft office picture manager, and Microsoft office
    document imaging along with Microsoft office document scanning , I don't use
    the windows picture and fax viewer except for Jpg's on the other PC. are you
    sure they didn't screw up the install, or you just didn't know what it was
    you were looking for due to name changes?

    I have been upgrading people in my company and everybody who I have
    upgraded has this same problem. A temporary solution is to open it with
    another program such as Imaging. Other than that I don't know what to
    tell you. Any thoughts by anybody else?
