Just installed Serif DrawPlus 7 on Windows8. It seems to work OK but when I start the programme it pops up a notice saying "Failed to update the system registry.
Try using REGEDIT.
What should I do? I am 78 years old and it does not mean anything to me.
OK, instead of starting the program by a left-click on the tile, right-click on it and a bar of options should appear at the bottom. Left-click once on Run as Administrator and answer "yes" if prompted by a security warning. Does the program start OK without that pesky error message you've been getting?
According to this table Click Here Serif DrawPlus 7 is not compatible with either Windows 7 or 8. There are no patches shown on the Serif Website either so it must be pretty old. You could try calling Serif support on (0845) 3456770
