Windows live photo gallery: original photos lost the transfer to the new computer

photos to the new computer, and the originals have not been transferred as im guessing they're saved in the software/program that cannot be transferred.

If there is not a way to transfer original and edited photos to the new computer, is there a way to return all original with a single click, so that I can transfer the originals on my new computer?

Thank you.


Thank you, you saved my originals... I copy paste, but can not work how to connect my pictures changed to the originals so that I can click on my modified photos and click on 'back '.

Thanks again

Sorry, but I don't have the exact solution for re - associate the
originals with edited versions.  The only thing I would like to know
to try would be to place the originals in the original Images
folder on the new system.

Maybe... I say just that maybe if you copied the photo gallery
exclusive database of the old system and used it to replace
the database on the new system. (Just copy and paste the file in)
the appropriate on the new system folder, and when you see
... dialog box you want to replace? with? Select Yes.

Also... you could instead of replace your new database...
rename it... Pictures.OLD for example. So if the replacement
do not re - associate files... you can remove the replacement
and rename the OLD version in what it was and the Gallery
must be as it was before the change.

Depending on the version of your photo gallery might be the database
Pictures.PD5, Pictures.pd6, Pictures.pd7...

The path to the version of Win XP is:

C:\Documents and Settings\ > user name<\Local>
Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Photo Gallery\
Pictures.PD4, Pictures.pd5 or Pictures.pd6

Windows Vista:

Windows Photo Gallery\Pictures.pd4 or pd5 pd6

Windows 7:

Windows Live Photo Gallery\Pictures.pd6

(Sorry, but I'm not sure of the path in Windows 8 but if you)
do a search for PD6 PD7, you should be able to find it.

The former article is a user experience
with the shifting of the database... maybe it would offer a few ideas:

  • How to see photos on the new computer using Firefox?

    I have Windows 7 Home Premium on two computers, one is about 4-5 years of age and the other is less than a month.  When I see pictures on the old computer I can open it with Firefox but on the newest computer I can use only Windows products.  I use Firefox 32.0.  Is it possible to get the newest computer to use Firefox to open pictures?   I'm not very good with computers so please if possible make it easy to understand?

  • lost all the images contained in the "my pictures" file on the hard disk while using Windows Live Photo Gallery

    I lost all the images contained in the "my pictures" file on the hard drive.  The files are there but when I open the files they are all empty. It's like some 50 folders and each folder contained about 25 or so images jpg. I lost the using the "windows live photo gallery» I found a thread that someone else has had this problem and only one answer was to check the checkbox 'Show hidden files'. I have done this no luck there. When I open "windows live photo gallery" all records are on the left of the window but empty. I did not send any of these files to the "trash".  Can someone tell me how to recover these?

    You ran the scanner of MS too? It will take some time, but it must be done. If a virus is responsible for it must be nuked before he can ravage any more.

    Send all the pictures? You can still recover these - and get some help course in order to avoid this sort of thing. External hard drives and online storage are worth a small spending to protect valuable files. I also keep the dvd - outdated image files but enough fix if even they can deteriorate over time (but don't we all!)

    Let us know if the scan MS lands anything - run the full scan - it will take time.

    Original title: __lost my microsoft photo program when I tried to download the upgrade to essentials

    I tried to download the new update essentials download and three quarters of the way through, he stopped.
    The download was already about this. He said then; "put everything back as it was" when he did. I have
    lost my photo program. It now gives you a nag screen which keeps comeing like:

    The system cannot find message for message number 0 X %1 in the message file

    0 x %2

    In addition, whenever I boot, the screen shows: "ready to download microsoft essentials" restoration is not
    the ride.

    After starting, the system leaves me alone until I try to open a j - peg or some file im trying to open.
    then the cycle starts again. further investigation, saying that I lost a dll.

    I tried to find microsoft photo viewer download to try to repair the photo of microsoft program and concluded that the
    only way I can do that is by downloading the essential upgrade download because it is attached to it.
    In order to accept the upgrade, the photo program should probably be repaired, as a thought as microsoft solve this Center says there is no problem. all other articles on the net is also not related or doesnot show how to fix the missing dll if it is the problem.

  • Cannot install windows live photo gallery, it says I have to sign as an administrator for the download to work

    Original title: Windows Live Photo Gallery problem

    I used to have Windows Live Photo Gallery on this computer and it was working fine.  For some reason, he took off.  I tried to download again and get a message that says I have to sign as an administrator for the download to work.  When I check my user account, it is said that I AM the administrator.

    What should do?  Thank you

    Try to create a new administrator account and see if you can install the program. If you can, your profile is corrupt.

I MUST HAVE GOT a RESPONSE or the problem SOLVED!  I would like to know how to 'fix' this problem MYSELF!  It is restarts even once I click on CLOSE OUT the program!

    Maybe the exclusive database is corrupted.

    Read the following article.

    Stops Windows Live Photo Gallery (944221)
    answer or does not start
    (according to version, database can be
    Pictures.PD4, Pictures.pd5 or Pictures.pd6)

    When you rename the file will force Live Photo Gallery to create
    a new database on the next launch file.

    Know that the gallery will be as it was the first time that you
    open and some metadata and labels may be lost.

    Good luck...
