Question about Broderbund PrintMaster® Platinum 17 Full Version for PC

1 Answer

CD/DVD drive will not recognize the CD

I loaded Printmaster 17 Platinum on my Windows XP Pro. I chose the custom install so I could run the program without having to change the CD's. Program says it sucessfully installed but requires the CD for some of the graphics. It requests the Install/Program CD and neither work. Nor do the Art 1 or Art 2 CD's work. I have no problem getting the online graphics. I can hear the CD trying to run but nothing comes up except the message to put the Install/Program CD in.

I did the clean install and I have administrator privileges. I've looked for updated drivers but can't find those either.

Thanks for any help.

    I tried all your suggestions. The software loads on another computer just fine. The software says it loaded sucessfully on my computer but still requires me to use the CD's to access the graphics and then won't recognize that the CD is in. I don't have that problem on the other computer.

Try other CD's that you have and see if it read those or automatically run. If you tried other CDs and they can be read then it maybe you may have to inspect your Printmaster CD for scratches or clean it off if dirty. If your CD Rom doesnt read Any CD at all then maybe it may need a little cleaning inside or that you may need to replace it.

How can I run PrintMaster 16 Platnum in Windows 7


Printmaster 16 Platinum is an older program and is compatible with XP and older versions of Windows.

First check which version of Windows 7 that you have. Click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If your version title ends with x64, you will need to use an option that lets you run an older version of Windows. If you do not see x64 in the title, then the compatibility mode might work.

For the 32-bit OS, right click on the installer and choose Properties. In the Compatibility tab, check the box for always run in the compatibility mode and select an older version of Windows. Apply the changes and click OK. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator. You may need to repeat this to run the software as well. This is not guaranteed to work in Windows 7 32-bit.

The alternative is to run an older version of Windows. This could be on a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer (if your hardware supports the feature). Most of these methods require licensed version of the older Windows OS. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to them, you can run a virtual XP OS for free. Download Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Then install the Printmaster program in XP as if this is the only OS. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.)

The only other option is to upgrade to a version of Printmaster that is Win7 compatible. One option is Printmaster 2012 Platinum available here: http://www.broderbund.com/p-273-printmaster-2012-platinum.aspx .

I 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.

May have to uninstall it first, then reinstall it.

Click START button, lower left corner
then click Control panel
then click on add or remove programs

*see if your product is listed(may be under BRODERBUND or other publisher name)
If it IS listed, uninstall it

Or sometimes the UNINSTALL is included in the CD options:
Insert the cd into the drive
go to my computer
find the cd drive
right-click the drive
select "explore"
Look for an Uninstall program

Hope this helps!

You might have a problem with your CD/DVD drive. Try inserting the CD in another computer. If the files are shown, replace your CD/DVD drive or just add another CD drive to an empty bay of your computer.
