Is there a home design program that works on Win7 64 bit?

    There used to be one that I used ages ago, but doesn't seem to work on Windows 7 64 bit.

    Any help out there?

    I don't know which program you are talking about, but....

    Have you tried running it as admin and/or compatibility mode for Windows XP?

    Also, what program is this? :O

    Ya that's the one. I'm at work... "working", so I was able to debug the error.

    I get "The type initializer for 'Ultima.Art' threw an exception."

    Does the program look for a UO installation to get it's art assets?

    ----- Edit

    Ya, that's gotta be it. Similar issues on the forums for the lost lands. Thanks for your time :)

    I ended up having to install the ML client off of Fileplanet, for it to work.

    I'm guessing they have "EAGames" hardcoded in it's path instead of "Electronic Arts", which is where the client goes if you download and install a fresh SA client.

    try running in XP Compability mode, you do this in properties for the file under the fan "compability" should solve it, but may not since the compability system isnt foolproof. but worth a try

    you mean you cant set it to compability or that the compability doesnt work?, might try an even earlier windows version like win98 if the last is the answer to my question.

    Sorry, I meant that setting the compatibility does not allow the program to work. I have tried to set it for all availalable settings. It has something to do with there not being the correct paths in the registry because the newer UO does not place the same ones.
