I can log in on-line and have ended up changing my password twice already today but it says it is wrong when I try to sign into the PC photosynth app? Any ideas why this is, its a new download that I have never logged into as this is a new PC.

Hi, Judy. 
I'm not from Microsoft but have been a long time Photosynth user and have seen several other people have this same problem.

The problem may be that your Microsoft Account has 2 factor authentication enabled.

Older applications like Photosynth's desktop application don't have a sign in form that knows about 2 factor authentication, so you have two options.

Option 1: Keep 2 factor authentication enabled at http://account.live.com and go to that page and ask it to generate a new 'app password' for you to put into Photosynth's desktop application.

Option 2: Turn off 2 factor authentication at http://account.live.com and use your normal password wherever you want.

Please write back if neither one of these options solves the problem for you.
Your fellow photosynther,

Shooting for it is a little different than the original Photosynth: http://photosynth.net/preview/help
