Have been using my wonderful old Elements 1 with every computer I’ve used since it came free with a scanner in 2001. Never any problems loading onto Windows 7 machines, but my first Windows 8 informs me that it has been unable to update the registry and, that I need Windows Explorer 4 or greater to install (which echoes a query back in 2003).

My Windows 8 laptop has (presumably) the very latest Windows Explorer, but sadly, when it demands version 4 or greater, there is no button to click saying "I do have the very latest version of Explorer, and it’s open, why can’t you see it you dozy…&c"

There has to be a simple answer… but does anyone know it?

The problem is Windows 8. (simple answer)

I used Elements 4 for many years, and last year moved up to version 11. Big step for me but works better on win7. Go on! Purchase version 12 that’s now out, and find a newer model computer with win7.
