          PageMaker will not install or run on a modern computer system.

            Moving this discussion to the Adobe Pagemaker forum.

              Unless you're trying to install it on a very old computer this is no shock. PM is DEAD.


              Why would you even be interested in it?

                I'm interested in it because I have pages of pictures in PageMaker that are saved no where else.  I will have to take the time to save each picture as a jpg in order to move them to a new computer and have access to them.  Don't be such a smark aleck.  If people want to use old software there's usually a very good reason for it.  I didn't understand half of what I was doing when I saved my pictures.  But at least I was smart enough to run the program and get the results I needed.

                  If I were you, I would try downloading a trial version of InDesign and see if it can open those old PM files.


                  There may be excellent reasons for wanting to use programs such as PageMaker or WordStar, but unfortunately this is not always possible because they were not designed for operating systems developed decades after they were created.
