Program won't print

I have an Epson Stylus C88 printer installed at the default printer on my Vista 64-bit system. PrintMaster Platinum 18 does not recognize my printer and won't install it for use with the program. It keeps telling me over and over to install it. I've attempted sevedral times and even printed a ''Test'' page, but when I go back tso print, it's the same thing all over again.
All my other programs have no printing problems.
Any ideas?
Broderbund is no help at all on their website forthat product.

    I've already installed the Vista drivers for my printer. The printer works with all my other ptograms but does NOT work with PrintMaster Premium 18.

  • willfrost Nov 14, 2008

    Did everything up to the "Graphics or Color" tab. Neither of those exist. I have a "Color Management" tab, but none of the things you suggested were available.

  • willfrost Nov 14, 2008

    Again: program is PrintMaster Platinum 18
    OS: Vista Home Premium 64-bit
    Printer: Epson Stylus C88
    Problem: PrintMaster program does not install the printer and does not print. I've followed the on-screen prompts to no avail.
    The printer works fine with all my other programs and is set as thnedefault printer.
    All required drivers are up-to-date.
    TheBroderbund website is of no practical use.

  • willfrost Nov 14, 2008

    That number for Broderbund . . . I've called it several times - they offer NO software support.
    I've even emailed them but hav received no response.

  • willfrost Nov 16, 2008

    I have uninstalled the program and reinstalled it several times.
    The printer works just fine with all my other programs.
    Despite what Microsoft Vista 64-bit compatibility site says . . . PrintMaster Platinum does NOT work with Vista 64-bit.
    In addition to the printer not working . . the Help files don't work and the PDF converter doesn't work either.
    I finally contacted Broderbund, but they couldn't really help either.

The main problem is the X64 drivers, they don't seem to work properly even if you visit the maufacturers website for the official drives.
i have had nothing but problems with drivers for both XP X64 and Vista X64
you can try always check to see if the printer supports X64 at all

Hello,

It seem it is just a problem between PrintMaster Premium 18 and your printer.

Try to uninstall PrintMaster Premium 18 and your printer driver.
Then install your printer, and then install PrintMaster Premium 18

Good luck,
Dahaka

In-Box = Drivers are included with Windows Vista. Just connect your Epson product to your computer and follow the on-screen instructions that Windows Vista displays to guide you through driver installation. Windows Update = Drivers are available using the automatic software update service built into Windows Vista. Just connect your Epson product to your computer and select Locate and install driver software (recommended) in the window that appears. Your Epson product drivers install automatically. (You may need to select this option more than once during installation). Download = Drivers are available for download from the Epson support site. Click the product name to go to the Download page for that product. Be sure to select the correct driver type for your version of Windows Vista: either 32-bit or 64-bit. To see which version of Windows Vista you have, click the Start button, Computer, and System Properties, then check the operating system version listed under the System heading.

Here's the reason:

Your VISTA printer driver is provided by MICROSOFT and is somewhat like a Generic driver (see www.epson.com/vista).

PrintMaster Platinum 18 looks for manufacturer provided printer driver that have settings and features that photo editing suites requires to produce superb printouts. One example as you can see noted at the bottom part of the PrintMaster Platinum 18 website (see http://www.broderbund.com/jump.jsp?itemType=PRODUCT&itemID=1978) * Borderless printing with compatible printers only.

For now, hoping that one of the companies involved (Epson, Microsoft, Broderbund) would release a patch to make it work.

Try uninstalling Printmaster program and reinstalling it. I know it sounds generic but sometimes after trying all the other options and not having them work makes us forget about just uninstalling and reinstalling. Something may have gotten corrupted with the the fix attempts. Let me know how it turns out for you.

There seems to be no problem with your printer as you have said

so either the Printmaster software is not supporting the Printer or maybe there is some fault in the installation

If it is not a big problem to you could you please try to reinstall the software and see what happens?

please do post back the results.

I have an wireless Epson NX 230 printer 32 bit printer with Win 7 operating sys Emachine 64 bit desktop. Printer driver process says operating system does not support the driver. Test page does not...


Officially MS says it's not support, and Epson does not have an updated driver. Sorry.
If I'm running a 64-bit version of Windows, do I need 64-bit drivers for my devices?

Yes, all hardware devices need 64-bit drivers to work on a 64-bit version of Windows. Drivers designed for 32-bit versions of Windows won't work on computers running 64-bit versions of Windows.

Description: This file contains the Epson Stylus NX230 Printer Driver v6.91. The Epson Status Monitor 3 is incorporated into this driver.

Compatible Systems: Windows 7 32-bit, Windows Vista 32-bit, Windows XP 32-bit

I have Print Master Platinum 10 and my Windows operating system is Windows 7 are they compatiable? I tried installing the program but it doesn't install. Is this program too old for this operating...


I don't think Printer Master Platinum 10 will run on Windows 7. However, solution #3 on this page (http://www.fixya.com/support/t2129564-printmaster_platinum_10_version_will_not) references how to make it run on Windows Vista. The same is true for Windows 7. You can run almost any software in compatibility mode. Since they're up to version 18, I doubt it will work with Windows 7.
Hope this helps.

I have chnged my computer system form XP to Window, now I cannot install PrintMaster Platinum Version 17? Is there any way that I can istall this program disc?


Thank you for your question.

In this instance it is easier to direct you to a video on the "Microsoft" website regarding installing older programmes. This is much clearer than trying to explain in writing.

I have the Printmaster Platinum Version17 , I cannot save to pdf files?


As a work around untill we can figure this issue out. http://www.acrosoftware.com/Products/CutePDF/writer.asp
This is a FREE PDF Print to file program.

At the top left of the page the are links to the PDF Creator and the Required GPL Ghostscript 8. The program will not function without it. Both programs work with x64 Vista. Read the website for the other benifits or the program.

Printer printing more then what is needed


while uninstalling the epson driver it will ask you for delete the setting or do you want to keep it. if you select keep it, it will happen how many times you install the driver. Check the printer settings in printers and faxes window, select printer go to printing preferences, page layout and check whether you give no. of copies to 2 there.
