Downloading Photo Story 3 without Windows Genuine Advantage Validation toolkit

When I try to download Photo Story 3, I get a message that I must run Windows Genuine Advantage Validation toolkit.  When I try to do that, I get a message that the “GenuineCheck.exe” is no longer supported and that I must download the latest version.  I cannot find that “latest version” anywhere.  Please help me.

I am replying to my own post!  I was finally able to validate my Windows software and download and install Photo Story 3, but only by using Internet Explorer as my browser.  Thus, my question, above, is answered.  Thanks anyway.

Thanks for the follow up – we have also found that Internet Explorer is necessary for a successful download and installation of Photo Story.  I hope you saw our article on it:…..o-story-3/
