    I want to have some programs which are removed in Windows 7, but appears in Windows Vista, but there is one problem.

    So, I installed Windows Vista Ultimate x64 SP2 in VMWare and I copied some programs from Windows Vista to Windows 7 (Windows Calendar, Windows Contacts, Windows Meeting Space, Windows Live Messenger Download, Windows Photo Gallery), I not copied all programs like Windows Mail, Windows Movie Maker etc.

    Problem appears when I try to open Windows Meeting Space. I tried to run WinCollab.exe, nothing happens. I tried to open Task Manager to see if this program is running in Processes, it's not running. Same problem is with Windows Photo Gallery.

    I also copied InkBall game and tried to run in Windows 7, same problem.

    Other programs (Windows Calendar, Windows Contacts) works properly.

    How to solve the problem? Maybe I forget to copy some files from System32 or SysWOW64 folders.

    Thanks in advance. :)
