Can i use my Macmillan Dictionary CD with Windows 7?

Early versions of the CD were made before Windows 7 was launched and we could not foresee the compatibility issues. You may be able to use your Dictionary CD by utilisingthe patch.


Patch: http://upd1.unicops.com/pup/macmillan/puwiz.exe

Copy and paste this patch url into your browser and it will download for you. Click 'run' and it will install the updates necessary for you to then successfully install your CD.


The version of the CD you are using may be much older but may also work with the patch (please make sure all of your Windows updates are also current).  If the patch does not work, you may require a newer version of the CD.  The latest version of the Macmillan English Dictionary CD can be purchased here: http://www.macmillandictionaries.com/buy.htm


Alternatively, we now offer a free online service:http://www.macmillandictionary.com
