Run Homesite on Windows 7

I’ve recently installed Windows 7 on my office computer and I’ve just realized that Homesite doesn’t run. I get an application error when Trying to open Homesite on Windows 7. The specific error is:

Application Error
Exception EOIeError in module homesite45.exe at 000803AC.
Error creating system registry entry.

Has anyone found a workaround to allow Homesite to run on Windows 7 without having to enter Windows XP mode? I’ve downloaded the XP mode that allows me to open Windows XP as a virtual terminal within Windows 7, but I’d prefer to run Homesite natively when opening it, rather than having to open a Windows XP terminal then having to open Homesite within that window.

If you’ve have any success, please comment below as Homesite has been a favorite for a long time.

  1. I’m running the OEM version of Windows 7 and in order to get Homesite to work (the good news being that I DID get it to work) I had to run it as administrator and in the XP SP2 compatibility mode. That got it running.

    My next hurdle was that it would not connect to any of my mapped network drives. To conquer that I had to turn off the User Account Control ‘feature’. Runs fine now, and Windows 7 is lightyears ahead of Vista. All’s right in the world now.
