Installing PrintMaster Platinum 16

I am trying to install PrintMaster Platinum 16 back onto my wife's computer. We had to upgrade her operating system so this requires reinstallation of the other programs.

She wants it reinstalled so she does not have to change discs everytime she tries to make a card, as she makes lots of cards to give away to sick, encouragement, etc.

Could you give me the steps I need to take to fully reinstall this program onto her computer so she doesn't have to change discs? Thank you for your help. Jim.

The program should give you a choice of Typical Install, Full Install, and Minimum Install. Choose Full Install, however she may still need some of her discs for some of the art since the program may not load all the art anyway.

    Printmaster 7.(Yes...) has an Install Art Disc choice when you go to All Programs - Printmaster from the start menu. It will install all the discs. Not for 16?

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.

Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(make your program/application run 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:))

If you are installing Printer 15 or 16 on Vista or Win 7 it is not compatilbe to the operating system.
Version 18 for Vista or Version 18.1 for Vista, Win 7.

You can try to use the Vista or Win 7 compatibility mode to install older software but no assurance it will work.

Hope it helps.
