    I have tried installing both copies of Paintshop Pro that I own on my Windows XP system. Both copies install all the way up to the end and then say "Registering Modules" and it just stays there forever. Other programs install fine, but when I go to install another program right after Ive tried to install PSP it says a copy of PSP installation is suspended and asks me if Id like to rollback so Install can finish installing the current program in which I have to say yes or it aborts.

    Thanks for any help.

    I can 't help with your Paintshop Pro issue other than to suggest Paint.Net: http://www.getpaint.net/index2.html which is about as good.

    Also, try adding PaintshopPro to the excluded programs list for Data Execution Prevention (DEP) if you ware running Windows XP SP2.

    Disable hardware acceleration when installing/running PaintShop Pro X.

    There seems to be an issue with systems having AMD Dual Core CPUs and NVidia Cards. Disableing hardware acceleration efectively shuts down the Nvidia drivers, allowing you to complete the installation.
