Question about Broderbund PrintMaster Platinum Version 18

1 Answer

Cannot install PrintMaster platinum version 18 on 2of 3 computers

Putting the CD in the CD R/RW drive, the action light blinks slowly for about 10 seconds, then speeds up markedly and the computer does not show any content being read on that drive. This happens with my 2 desktop computers but installs OK on my laptop. All three are using Windows XP and read other CD's successfully and accept installation of other programs happily!

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 used PrintMaster 10 for a number of years on my old computer-XP. I recently purchased a new computer and wish to put the program on my laptop( Windows 7). I tried choosing the compatibilty method...


The only solution with this older software that will work is to use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate (or are willing to upgrade to one of these versions), you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them. You can't have a printer installed on both the main computer and the virtual one at the same time. You will be asked to uninstall the printer if you try.

Your other option is to upgrade to PrintMaster Platinum 18.1, see http://www.broderbund.com/ for details, which is compatible with Windows 7. This will import your Printmaster 10 projects.


I hope this helps.

My wife has been using Printmaster for years and has created thousands of projects. Her latest version is 18. We got a new computer with Windows 7 and it said that version 18 is not compatible. So we...


Installing PrintMaster 18 on any computer requires .NET Framework 1.1 to be installed on the hard drive. If NET Framework 1.1 is not installed, it will be installed from thePrintMaster 18 install disk before PrintMaster 18 is installed. If possible download .NET framework 1.1 If .NET Framework 1.1 is not already installed on the computer, the "Program Compatibility Assistant" in Windows 7 will display this message.To continue with the installation, select "Run Program".

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.

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.
