is it compatible? Right click on the game icon and select properties. Click on the compatibility tab and tick the box in the compatibility mode section. Select xp and click apply.Start the game and hopefully it works.
The following are your options for running this software:
1) Run your software in (XP) Compatibility mode - set in Program Properties-> Compatibility
2) Run in XP Mode if you have the appropriate version of Windows 7 (Professional and Ultimate) and Hardware (CPU must have Hardware Acceleration).
3) Install a Virtual Machine (such as the free Oracle VirtualBox) under Window 7 and then install an alternative Operating system (e.g. Windows XP) in this Virtual Machine and then the required software.
At first, go to start menu, all programs, accessories, system tools, open System Restore. Restore your system to restore point created before installing The Print Shop. After that, try to install it again.
Otherwise, you can try to install it from different CD, or installation file.
All you need to do is download & install Windows XP Mode for Windows 7
Once installed you will be able to run all your favorite old programs , if you run into any compatibility issues , right click on the .exe file & select "properties" , compatibility mode , & select the settings your program is known to work with .
After all this if you still can't run the program , try using " virtualbox " or " vmware virtual machine " & install a copy of windows xp as a virtual machine .
You can either get Broderbund Print Shop Deluxe 2.0 which is Win7 compatible or use a virtual/dual boot computer with WinXP. (The Vista compatible version was Print Shop 23; so you are dealing with some significant changes in the OS. Thus the compatibility mode probably won't work. You can try right clicking on the installer and choose Properties and the Compatibility Tab. Check Run as Compatible with XP then right click on the installer again and choose Run as Administrator. Then do the Compatiblity mode again with the actual program.)
With Win7 Pro and Ultimate, you have an option to download and run XP mode which takes two programs that you download from Microsoft and install. This lets you run a virtual XP computer inside the Win7 computer for free. All other virtual computer programs or dual boot systems require a licensed version of XP.
Have you tried installing them in Compatibility Mode? If not, look in Vista's Help & Support for how to try this. If that doesn't work, you can try installing them as Administrator by right-clicking on the installer executable and choosing "run as Administrator". If none of that works, I'm sorry but you'll need to update to a current version of the program that the mftr. says will work in Vista.
