Do MAGIX Programs Work on Windows 7 (32-bit/64-bit)?

MAGIX Win71 192x300 Do MAGIX Programs Work on Windows 7 (32 bit/64 bit)?Since Microsoft’s Windows 7 arrived on the market last Summer, almost 100 million people around the world have decided to buy this new operating system. It would appear that a least a few MAGIX users are among them, because in our online community the question keeps cropping up regarding our products’ compatibility with Windows 7 and, most of all, with the 64-bit version of this operating system.

This is why we’ve put together a few related facts for you. Note: We can only guarantee full support of products which were launched after the release of Windows 7.

That said, those who acquired one of our programs just before the release need not panic. As a rule of thumb, products with a version number of at least 15 (e.g. Music Maker, Samplitude Music Studio, Movie Edit Pro) or 8 (PhotoStory on CD & DVD or Movies on DVD) in their titles can install the programs in compatibility mode in Windows 7. Here, it doesn’t matter whether Windows is running in a 32-bit or 64-bit version.

All current MAGIX programs run under both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7. This is because the programs themselves were programmed in 32-bit. So running a 32-bit Windows system is fine and the 64-bit version of Windows 7 was good enough to let 32-bit programs continue running without problems.

Conclusion: Those who want to upgrade to 64-bit systems can keep using MAGIX software.
