Re: errors with fonts and operation

That is because something is messed up and adobe is detected as a copy...
there is the trick to make it work again:
goto my pc, right click and click on manage, then go to service and applications, then click again at services, look for something that its called FLEX, right click it and go to properties, then there is this thing that its a drop down menu and click for automatic.. apply all changes and restart your pc...
i would be more specific about it but my OS version its in spanish... and translations are a bit different..
hope that helps..

Saved illustrator 10 file gets corrupted

Check for a damaged pattern, gradient, or custom color
To determine if the problem is caused by a damaged pattern, gradient, or custom color:

1. Choose Edit > Select All and change the fill and stroke to process black.
2. Perform task 4 again to determine whether the problem occurs in a new file that does not contain the patterns, gradients, or spot colors. If the problem does not recur, re-create the pattern, gradient, or spot color in the original file.

I have a 64 bit computer and I am trying to install Parsons Hebrew Tutor which is an 8 bit program. Is there anyway possible to do this?

What OS were you previously using with the program? This program ran well under Win98 but could run in Windows XP. This is for the version released in 1997. Some reviewers noted problems with the fonts, screen resolution and color attributes under XP.

I think the only way you might be able to run the program is in a second computer (physical, dual boot or virtual). What OS are you currently running? If you have Windows7 Pro or Ultimate, you can run a virtual XP for free. (If you have Home Premium, you can upgrade to Pro or Ultimate for a fee.) Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the Hebrew Tutor on the XP computer. You may need to copy the fonts to the System font folder (either from the tutor disk or the folder that is installed with the Hebrew Tutor program)
To install a font, follow these steps in the XP system:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. Type the following command, and then click OK: %windir%\fonts
  3. On the File menu, click Install New Font.
  4. In the Drives box, click the drive that contains the font that you want to add.
  5. In the Folders box, click the folder that contains the font that you want to add, and then click OK.
  6. In the List of fonts box, click the font that you want to add. To select more than one font at a time, press and hold the CTRL key while you select each font.
  7. Click to select the Copy Fonts To Fonts Folder check box. The new font is saved in the Windows\Fonts folder.
  8. Click OK.
(Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. If you decide to run the program under Windows 98, you will not be able to use the XP mode. Instead you will need one of the other options I have listed.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(if you are running a UNIX or MAC OS, you can do something similar with a virtual computer. For UNIX try WINE (which runs many Windows programs). For a Mac, you will need a virtualization program and a licensed copy of Windows XP.)

I am trying to install my old software on my new computer. After hitting the "Install personal patterns for children - special edition" I get an error message stating: could not execute external program...

Open "My Computer".
Double-click the icon for the CD-drive.
Look for that 'ppchild' file.
Or, look for an 'setup' file or an 'install' file.
Double-click one of those files, to restart the installer.

If it still fails, then your new computer (running Windows 7) probably has recognized that the program is _NOT_ compatible with Windows 7. So, start the Windows "Program Compatibility Wizard", and tell it that you want to install a Windows XP program on your new computer.

How to import fonts to photoshop?

  1. Regardless of the source, download the font and save it in a fonts folder on your hard drive.
  2. Step 2 Double-click the fonts folder and choose "File." You should be able to select "Install New Font" at this point.
  3. Step 3 Find the fonts you want to install. They may be on a CD or in a folder on your hard drive. When you download fonts from an online site, save them in a place that is easy to access when you install them in Windows.
  4. Step 4 Highlight the TrueType or OpenType font you wish to install and click "Ok." This will complete the installation. Programs, such as Photoshop will automatically incorporate the new font in the list provided by the program.
  5. Step 5 Go to the start menu and select "Settings." Open your control panel. In Windows XP, the control panel will be in the start menu. There is no need to look for "Settings" first.

Hope this is what you need

Adobe CS3 Illustrator- Cannot open ''tools'' artonpath.aip

Charlotte, it sounds you are attempting to open a file created from a newer version of Illustrator than what you have. Not sure what the details are on the file your using.
However, have you tried recreating the preferences file?
Are you using Mac or windows?
If your using windows try this:
Install and run Illustrator in a new user account.Create a new user account with the same permissions as the account experiencing the error, and then install and run Illustrator under that account.
For instructions on creating a new user account, see "To add a new user to the computer" in Windows Help
