Vista has features that can run a wider range of software. You probably won't be able to run it on the xp computer. There may be a driver available, but I'm not really into that.

I want to downgrade ACER ASPIRE M5641 desktop form vista to XP. What steps to follow? Also I have only the backup CD which I made right after the purchase , originally installed with VISTA. Understand it...


You'll have to purchase the XP software, set your computer to boot from cd (in the cmos settings), put the disk in the cd and restart you computer. When the screen comes up to "...hit any key to boot from cd" hit any key. The system will boot to the XP cd and will allow you to delete the old partition, reformat your drive, and install XP. Next go to www.acer.com and download your drivers. Finally install your programs and data on to your hard drive. Have fun!

NOTE: Make absolutely sure that you backup the programs and data that you want to keep before starting the XP install!

Can you get into the BIOS configuration to enable the CD and USB drive?
If so enable these devices.
Check the interior of the desktop to see if the CD drive and USB connectors are still connected.

I have printmaster version 18 and I've upgraded my system to the 64-bit version of Vista. What updates are needed for printmaster?


Contact the Printmaster people to get the updated drivers and software for the changeover to 64 bit Vista.

OTherwise, look on their CD or DVD for a folder that is identified by Vista and under that, a folder for the 64 bit drivers. There may be a folder on the distribution DVD or CD which can help you make that change.

Problems installing and running printmaster platinum 18 on HP touchsmart windows vista computer


You might try right clicking on the install files and going to compatibilty mode under properties.change it to work under windows xp or a closer match to what the program is designed for. This should solve the problem. you may have to do it for the install and then for the run file. Good luck. Hope this helps.

I did a 4 page newsletter and saved it. Now when I open the newsletter just one page comes up with no place to turn the page and no way to enlarge the page.


Yes you are right that the software is not doing its best.Its a failure from Printmaster Platinum 18, check out if it is under trial period, then upgrade.
Or it might be the case with Printmaster not compatible with Vista. Otherwise use a different software.

Please vote the solution.
