The Photo-Atlas of Minerals DVD versions will not work on modern versions of Windows. The latest version of Windows on which it will work is Windows XP, but only if it has not had the more recent service packs installed. It also requires Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express, which is no longer available from Microsoft.

We no longer provide routine technical support for the Photo-Atlas of Minerals DVD versions or the earlier CD versions; however, if you have questions about the Photo-Atlas, you can contact Tony Kampf.
