SOURCE: Installing PrintMaster Platinum 16

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.

This should answer your question

I understand that you are inquiring if Printmaster 18 is compatible with Windows 7. Our developers have tested every aspect of Printmaster 18 to see if it will function properly on Windows 7. It has passed all tests except one, which is the Save As PDF feature. Our developers just became aware of this and are working on a resolution to make it work on the Windows 7 operating system. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, but we can assure you that we will provide a fix for this as soon as possible.

SOURCE: compatability issue

Hi,

How to install an XP/Vista program on Windows 7


First of all locate the setup or installer file, this will be either in the contents of a CD/DVD (you have to explore the contents of the CD/DVD) under the name "setup" or a downloaded .exe (executable) file.

Right click on the setup file and select "Properties" from the sub menu.

A Properties windows will appear on screen, click on the "Compatibility" tab.
At the bottom of the tab you will see the header "Privilege Level".

Check the box that says "Run this program as an administrator"

Also at the top of the Compatibility tab you will see "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
Check that box and if you have the option select Windows XP (service pack 3).

Click Apply and then OK and install your program.

NOTE: if you have upgraded from Vista Windows XP mode may not be available depending on how you system was configured.


How to run an installed program on Windows 7


Some programs will install but they won't run on Windows 7. Again this down to compatibility but unlike Vista, Windows 7 has the compatibility mode working down to a tee.


Locate the desktop icon or the program in "All Programs" from the Start Menu or Orb as it's affectionately known today.

Just as in my tip about installing a program it is just the same.

moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngmoz-screenshot-2.pngRight click on the icon or file and select "Properties" from the sub menu.

A Properties windows will appear on screen, click on the "Compatibility" tab.

Check the box that says "Run this program as an administrator"

Also at the top of the Compatibility tab you will see "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
Check that box and if you have the option select Windows XP (service pack 3).

Click apply and then OK and run the program.


NOTE: If you have upgraded from Vista Windows XP mode may not be available depending on how you system was configured.

Unable to download from disc Printmaster v.18.1 despite being led to believe its compatible with Windows 8


Printmaster 18.1 is not really compatible with Windows 8. Here's a link to a possible solution directly from Broderbund. You can try it, but you might be out of luck.

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.

Have old printmaster platinum 8.0 tried to download on new comp windows 7 it says something about 16 bits


Printmaster platinum 8.0 is rather an old 16bits software and it is not compatible to your new version Win 7 OS.

You can check software compatibility @ Windows 7 Compatibility Center

Your option is to upgrade to version 18 which is Win 7 compatible.

Hope it 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".

How do you make Printmaster Platinum 16 work with windows vista


Printmaster Platinum 16 is not compatible with Vista or windows 7. You can try to use Vista compatibility mode to run older programs in Vista. There is not guarantee that it will work!!! Please take note:- **The installation of an older program to run in a newer OS may also crash your PC too.

I installed window 7 into my laptop. My printmaster platinum 18 is now not working properly. What can I do to resolve this issue


Right click on the program shortcut click on properties from the menu and click on the compatibility tab , check "Run this program in compatibility mode of windows xx" and select the version of windows in which the program used to run. Apply the settings and open the program again. If the program still doesnt work try to reinstall or get an updated version for windows 7 maybe Print Master 2010.

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.

How can i run platinum 16 on windows 7. it says there is compatability issues cannot find any driver updates


The recommended solution is to upgrade for version 18.

I'd guess you already tried running the installer by choosing Run this program in compatibility mode (by right clicking and choosing properties) and then right clicking again and Run as administrator.

Your next option is to run a virtual PC within your Win7 computer (or a dual boot system) with a compatible OS running on the "other" machine. With Win7 Pro and Ultimate, there is an option to download two programs and install them for a free WinXP virtual computer (XP mode). For the other primary OS's you'll need to have a valid license of the compatible OS to install in program that runs the virtualization or the second boot disc. Then install the Printmaster in the "machine" with the correct OS. You may find you need to save the files to external media to transfer them. (The virtual computer won't let you have one printer installed on both the virtual system and the real computer.)

I hope this helps.
