From what I am seeing on various websites, the LivePix 2.0 version was released back in 1998. There haven't been any new updates for this software therefore I hardly believe it will work in Windows 10. In Windows XP, yes, there is a chance the software might start, but Windows 10 is definitely out of the question.

If you still have the installation package, install Windows XP with the help of VirtualBox. You'll also need a Windows XP installation disc or ISO file.

Trying to use old 16bit software in 64bit Windows systems is frustrating when there's still a lot of good but old/incompatible software around, which is a pity.
I can't speak for LivePix 2.2 but I do have a CD with Livepix Special Edition Print Artist, c.1993 then bundled by Epson.
It won't load on my Win 8.1 64bit, but I discovered it does work without need for a virtual system. With the CD files stored on an external drive, I can call up its .exe from there and it works fine, no hassle. It's 'Print' utility doesn't work, but once finished pic is saved as jpeg, any other graphics programme can print it.
