    Windows Live Photo Gallery In Windows 10 Technical Preview

    Is it possible to install WLPG in Win 10 TP, and if so how?

    Advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks and regards, Roy

    Try Windows Live Photo Gallery and Movie Maker 2011. Be sure to only install what you want and not the complete Windows Live suite.

    NOTE: I've not tried this on Win10.

    The "system requirements" on the page you linked to says that OS requirements are Win7, Vista SP2, and Server 2008, with no mention of Win8/8.1, so it probably won't install in Win10 TP.

    Instead, see Photo Gallery in Windows Essentials 2012. The "system requirements" list Win8, so it should work in Win10 TP (I haven't tried it myself).

    Otherwise you could try IrfanView (but get the plugins too). I have installed IrfanView in Win10 TP, and it is working fine. I have been using IrfanView since about 2003 and have found it very fast and very powerful, and it is FREE.

    I tried the 2011 and 2012 versions of WLPG but neither would install the program. I have other problems with the Win 10 Tech Preview, so I am going to reinstall it.
