Can't install PrintMaster Platinum 16 on my Windows 7 PC


This version of print master is not compatible with windows 7.
see the compatibility criteria of Printmaster on the link given below!
http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Details.aspx?type=Software&p=PrintMaster%20Platinum&v=Encore&uid=18&l=en&pf=0&pi=9&c=Graphics%20%26%20Printing&sc=Image%20Editing&os=64-bit

You can try if this works in compatibility mode in your pc - Try running in compatibility mode. Right click the program icon, click Troubleshoot Compatibility, wait while the problem is detected. Click Troubleshoot program > select an appropriate version of Windows the program is known to run in, try Windows Vista SP2 > start the program to see if it runs. If it runs, click next to proceed with saving the settings for it.

Just got Windows 7 and trying to install printmaster gold 17...won't work. what do i do?


Windows 7 has a compatibility wizard that you can use to help install it. Go to start, control panel, and then type in troubleshooter in the search box. Under programs, click "run programs for other versions of windows." Follow those instructions. If you need to browse to the setup file on the disc, do so. If that does not work, you can go to Broderbund's web site. They have a compatibility update for Gold 17 on their website. Unfortunately it is for Vista, but it still might help you with the compatibility issue

I have the Printmaster Platinum Version17 , I cannot save to pdf files?


As a work around untill we can figure this issue out. http://www.acrosoftware.com/Products/CutePDF/writer.asp
This is a FREE PDF Print to file program.

At the top left of the page the are links to the PDF Creator and the Required GPL Ghostscript 8. The program will not function without it. Both programs work with x64 Vista. Read the website for the other benifits or the program.

Printmaster gold 17 help needed


workaround. try insert instead of import save to widows instead your software is faulty and cleaning the disc maybe all that is required if not buy another disc yours might be scratched.
