#1) Download and Install the following Vista
MS Digital Image 2006
*Vista Compatibility* Update
(This will update you to (V11.1.2018.0)
#2) You don't say where the duplicates are...
I'm guessing they are in Digital Image Library?
If you rename or delete the proprietary database...
it will revert the program to the way it was the
first time you opened it. And...you will have to
catalog your image collection again. You can
do the same with Vista Photo Gallery if you wish...
let me know if you need instructions for that.
Actually...if you are using Digital Image library...
I see no reason to use Vista Photo Gallery...
why have two libraries?
In Windows Vista...your Pictures.pd3
database file should be found at the
If you cannot find the file, it may be hidden.
On your Vista machine you can find your
database file with with an Advanced Search
Go to...Start / Search / Advanced Search.
Check the box..."Include non-indexed, hidden,
and system files" Enter .pd3 in the Name field
and left click the Search button.
You can delete the Pictures.pd3 file or just
rename it Pictures.OLD. The next time
you open the Library it will be as it was the
first time you opened it.
I would also suggest that you empty your
Temporary Internet Files folder:
Delete Temporary Internet files
BTW...you can remove any or all folders from
Digital Image Library by:
Right Click / Remove From Library.
Then you can go to...Import / Find On My Computer...
and import any files you wish.
