3D home architect Deluxe 5.0

I can make a layout but when I try to put in furniture appliances etc. as soon as I click on the chair symbol a message appears stating that there is a problem with the program and it will have to shut down. It happens everytime I click on the chair symbol. It happened several times as I made the layout of the room. but I was able to save the layout before the program gives tha error message and shuts down, I haven't used this program in two years and maybe that seme error stopped me then. I appreciate any help that you all can provide. Thanks in advance. John

The program is rather old and I don't think totally XP friendly. You will need to change the compatibility to Windows 98 and then run it.

Can not load software on vista

This software is not compatible with Windows Vista. I believe you can only use it with XP. 3D Home Architect Deluxe from Broderbund has been discontinued.
Only works with:
Microsoft Windows 98/Me/2000/Xp Pentium II class processor (300 MHz or higher) 96 MB RAM (128 MB Recommended)

There is a version 6.0 of this software but has bad reviews.
I found a better rated software like this one:
Home Design Architectural Series 18
This has received "TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award".

  • FloorPlan Trace™

No drivers necessary. Insert CD. When the Windows prompt that asks if you want to install or view the contents of the CD, choose the latter. Find and click on a folder named "setup." Now click "autorun." Near the very bottom of the folder will be another setup executable. Click this one. The program will install just fine!

This program is not vista compatable, sorry. You will either need to create an XP partition and run it from there or use another product.
