Question about Nova Development Art Explosion Greeting Card Factory Deluxe 2 (GGW) for PC

1 Answer

Can't open greeting card templates when program starts

I have an older version of greeting card factory express. Version 3.0.0.5 to be exact. I can no longer open the templates for the cards. In the past it worked well. I am able to open previous cards that I have saved and I am able to use all the other features of the program.

When I explore my program files I can see the greeting card .lax files.
But when I click on the file I get a pop up that says unable to open document.

My operating system is windows XP Home.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program and nothing changed.

I wonder if you have any ideas. Thank you for your help.

Will this version of Spiritual Expressions work with Windows 7 computer?


I have heard that it does work with windows 7 but there are some compatibility issues that could make it function poorly or crash unexpectedly. Unfortunately there isn't much more information about this product with Windows 7.

My Art Explosion Greeting Card Deluxe Factory 2 software will not work on my Toshiba Satellite A200 laptop. I am using Windows Vista. Please can you advise?


Unfortunately the Windows OS has changed significantly since that software was released. Nova Developement now has the Greeting Card Factory Deluxe version 8 for XP/Vista/7.

If you have the 64-bit Vista, you may not be able to get the old software to work and need the upgrade or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS (see below). To check your OS version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System .

You can try running the program in the compatibility mode - this will work best with software for XP not Win95-NT. Right click on the installer and select Properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and choose Run this program as compatible with (an older version of Windows). Click on the check box and use the drop-down menu to select the older OS. Save the change by clicking apply then close the window. Right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

If the program installs, do the same compatibility steps for the program's exe file itself. (You don't need to run as administrator though.)

Alternatively, you can run a dual boot or virtual computer with an older Windows OS. (Programs like Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare let you run a virtual computer inside the Vista system with a computer that can handle virtualization.) Unfortunately, you usually need a licensed version of Windows to do this. (Win7 Pro and Ultimate let you do this free with Virtual PC and XP mode.) Then install the software normally in the virtual computer or when booted into the older version of Windows. File transfer can be tricky with the virtual computer - you need to save files to external media (flash drive or optical disc). Printers can't be installed on both the real and virtual computer at the same time.

I hope this helps.

I have Spiritual Expressions for Windows 98 but my laptop has Windows Vista. How can I make the program work on Vista?


You may be able to get it to work by installing it in compatability mode. Right click on the install file and choose windows 98 on the compatability tab.
You could also use a virtual machine, you could load a copy of windows 98 and then use your program in the VM.
There are free Virtual machine programs, but you would need a valid copy of win 98

I have american greetings spiritual expressions but it will not install in Windows 7. Is there a solution? My wife loved her old program; spiritual expressions 2. It would not run either on the HP with...


This is a Windows 98 program. Try installing it using the compatibility feature of WIN7. Right click on the startup program on the CD, select install as administrator, right click again and select properties, install as W98 compatible.
This might work but some of these older programs just won't work with Vista or Win7. I didn't find any updated spiritual expressions software. It looks like it is no longer made.
Also you didn't say if you're running 32bit or 64bit Win7. Be aware that 64bit does not support 16bit programs. Given the age of spiritual expressions, it is probably 16bit code. No way will it run on a 64bit OS. My above suggestion will only work with 32bit Win7.

Would the Broderbund American Greetings Spiritual Expressions 7 be compatible to Windows 7? And does this CD have the same spiritual pictures as the American Greetings Spiritual Exressions that I bought...


Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_52.jpg

Problem installing,deluxe version 7,greeting card


insert disk
click on MYCOMPUTER and then RIGHT-CLICK on the drive and then click or EXPLORE

This should open a folder for the disk. somewhere in there should be an EXE file with SETUP in the title.

if the folder doesn't display the contents you may have a bad disk
if it does and you cant find a setup program let me know.

is this the only disk you have had trouble with lately?

Greeting card factory version 6


The reason I couldn't put it on my PC was I haven't got a dvd writer. Which wasn't made clear from whom I bought it. Very disapointed.
