For PM7 on a 64-bit system, all bets are off.
You could try a custom re-install of PM7 and select only the dictionaries you need, assuming the installer works properly.
Hey, hows it goin?
Just to say all bets are back on!
- Right click the desktop icon
- Run as Administrator
- Uncle Bob!!!
Works for me anyway! Good Luck!
Good luck to you. I hope your copy of PageMaker doesn't decide to remember its age in the middle of a huge and important job which you have not backed in a couple of days...
Taylor, I'd have to agree with Big J and Claudio.
It may work, it could work. However, when in the middle of a big paying job or university project, them may and could are not good enough. Bear in mind PM7 was not designed to run on moder Windows operating systems such as Vista and 7 64 bit. You may find a certain issue such as your spell check problem. Someone else could have a font problem. Whilst another may not even get the program to install at all Of course, you may be lucky and have it installed and running with no issues at all! That said, I don't think Adobe will offer technical support for PM on Win 7, so you'll be on your own or have to rely on this forum for help.
You have 3 options:
Continue to use PM on an old PC running Win 2000 or XP.
Upgrade to InDesign CS5 for $199
Move over to some other fully supported, Win 7 freindly DTP program such as PagePlus
Hope this helps.
This works for me.
Pagemaker 7 running on Windows 7 64 bit.
Right click on the Pagemaker icon and choose "run as administrator"
All document CREATED can then be spellchecked.
Old documents that have not been created whilst running as administrator cannot be spellchecked
even if you have launched as administrator.
