I have been using Ulead Photo Express 4.0SE for years, and have
successfully used it on 3 different machines so far without a
problem. It successfully worked on an AMD 586 machine running
WIN95, a Pentium 586 machine running WIN Millenium, and my current
desktop - a Dell Vostro 220s with an Intel Core2 Duo running WIN XP.
However, now I can't get it to run on my Dell Latitude D630 laptop,
which is also a Core2 Duo running the same WIN XP as my desktop.
I have tried installing it several times, each time with the same
result.... when I click on it to run it, the hourglass briefly
appears, and then nothing happens, as if it was just suddenly dropped

start it I get the same result. If I open the Windows task manager
and watch, the Ulead program never appears on it. There is a brief

in regular mode, and in both win 95 and win 98/millenium modes all to
no avail. After each install, I have tried running the program itself
in each of those compatibility modes as well, all to no avail.
The installer runs it's course and gives me messages that the program
is sucessfully installed, but it just doesn't work when I try to run it.
I have tried each install with the computer hooked up to the internet,
as well as not so, in case there are any updates available, with no
This program runs fine with no issues on all my other machines, including
my latest Dell desktop running the same OS and same processor, IT JUST
WON'T RUN ON THIS ONE, WHICH IS MY NEW TRAVEL COMPUTER,
and it's damned annoying!
I have tried asking the Ulead people on their website, but they won't
Anyone have help?
