PI2002 will install on Vista...but will not run.
Certainly not the solution you want to hear...
but there are two options that may be worth
considering...if you have an older WinXP
machine, continue running it there. And if
you have a copy of WinXP that can be
activated you might consider running it in
a Virtual Machine inside Vista.

FWIW...Digital Image Suite Anniversary
Edition is optimized for Vista. (The Digital
Image line replaced Picture It!)
If you would like to try the 2006 program
there is a 60 day evaluation version that
is still available for download. This trial
is fully functional but does not include the
pre-formatted projects or clipart.
