  • Hi,

    As Steganos Safe 2008 10.1rev 4694 was release at 2008 for vista at most, you may need to install it in compatible mode in windows 7 to try your luck.

    Here are the steps:
    ================
    1. Right click on the program's shortcut, .exe file, or installation program.

    2. Click on Properties.

    3. Click on the Compatibility tab.  NOTE: If the Compatiblity options are grayed out, then it is a 64 bit program and cannot be changed

    4. To Run a Program in Compatibility Mode -
    NOTE: Runs the program using settings from a previous version of Windows. Try this setting if you know the program is designed for (or worked in) a specific previous version of Windows.
    A) Check the Run this program in compatibility mode for box.
     
    B) Click on the drop down menu arrow and select which version of Windows the program was made for. Suggest Windows vista. NOTE: Always pick the latest Windows version the program was written for to have a better chance of it running properly in Windows 7.

    5. To Change the Settings for a Program -
    A) Check or uncheck the settings you want for the program.

    6. To Change the Privilege Level of a Program -
    NOTE: Runs the program as an administrator. Some programs require administrator privileges to run properly. If you are not currently logged on as an administrator, this option is not available.
    A) Check or uncheck the Run this program as an administrator box to enable or disable this option. 

    7. To Change All of These Settings Above for All Users -
    NOTE: Lets you choose settings that will apply to all users on this computer.
    A) Click on the Change settings for all users button.
    B) Repeat steps 4, 5, and 6 in this window to apply them to all users on the computer. 

    C) Click on OK.
    8. Click on OK to apply the changes.

    ============

    Also I noticed that the latest version Steganos safe 11 is compatible with windows 7. You can consider switching the product or contact their support for diect information:
