Hi everyone, I found MGI Photosuite on my hdd today, so I clicked on the .exe and it said "failed to create an empty document" Can anyone tell me why It can't create an empty document and how to fix it?

I bet this program has a default directory where it creates new documents (something such as c:\documents and settings\user\my documents\MGI Photosuite.) and the default is not there anymore. Look into the default properties to see if there is such a specification.

Where do I find the default properties? You mean just right clicking on it?

No. I mean somewhere in the application itself. It could be some path specification somehre in an options section. I am just making a logical guess becasue I do not use the program. Reinstalling it should recreate any directories used by the program.

well, it is installed to C:\Program Files\MGI\MGI PhotoSuite II and I think that is the default. Does anyone know where to get it? I have no idea where I got it in the first place.
