Ventura 10 Installation on Win 7/Vista Systems
--------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Insert V10 CD and navigate to the root folder on it.

2. Right click on SETUP32.EXE on the CD and choose Properties.

3. Set compatibility to XP and check the "Run as Administrator" box.

4. Double click SETUP32.EXE to launch the installation and install normally.

5. When installation is complete, copy \System32\Redist\MS\System\mfc42.dll from the CD to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Corel\Ventura10\Programs\ folder.

6. In the C:\Program Files (x86)\Corel\Ventura10\Programs\ folder, right click on VENTURA.EXE and choose Properties.

7. Set the compatibility to Win 2000 compatibility and save this option.

8. Right click on VENTURA.EXE again and choose "Run as Administrator".

9. Exit V10 after it has completely launched.

10. Right click on VENTURA.EXE again and choose Properties.

11. Turn off compatibility and save this option.

12. V10 should now run normally.

13. (optional) On Win7 systems with high-res displays, sometimes when moving/sizing dockers and frames, they appear to be way to the left of where they actually are. They are fine once the operation is complete, but it can be disconcerting. Also, Ventura dialog boxes may seem mis-sized. In either case, it you go to the compatibility options and check Disable display scaling on high DPI settings, it seems to help both these issues.

    Actually if you follow the instructions about copying the mfc42.dll file, you shouldn't need to use compatibility mode at all.
