Can't save a print shop file to a pdf file

Hi I have Print Shop 23, upgraded from Print Shop 20 which I never had problems with. I am laying out my son's school yearbook and want to save file as a pdf. It won't let me. First it seemed like everything was fine then I would get a run time error at about page 22 (out of 28). So I messed around with it (per Broderbund's site suggestions) and tried reinstalling the pdfdriver. Now when I try to save as a pdf it says "failed to setup pdf converter" then I hit OK and it says "unable to initiate pdf printer/driver"

Have uninstalled and reinstalled everything at least 3 times. When I go to the "help" button there is no technical support button. Any ideas out there?

Why can't I save to a PDF with Windows 7?


The Broderbund PDF converter is a piece of software that is apparently bundled with Broderbund's Print Shop. If you upgraded your OS, you may need to update your Print Shop software. If you did a "clean install" or had your XP operating system saved to an Old Windows directory, it is likely that you will have to reinstall Print Shop in its entirety.

In case it helps, here is an article on someone with a similar issue:

I am currently using both Print Shop 5.0 Premier and Print Shop 10. I am switching to a new computer with Windows 7 and will need to install Print Shop 23 Deluxe. Will I be able to retrieve all the files...


I will advice you to locate the print-shop folders that are on your computer. or simple open one of the files you created with this software and right click file location. it will open where all the other files are stored on your computer. backup everything stored on your computer to a flash drive.
Let me know if this solution helps.

I can't open sig. files on window 7 keeps saying not supported will not allow me to use the software to open either. no matter that i the print shop as default


Print Shop 20 is not completely compatible with Windows 7. For example, when I try to open a Print Shop 20 project on my Windows 7 computer, by double-clicking on the file which is displaying the Broderbund logo, I receive an error message which says, "There was a problem sending the command to the program." And, even though the Print Shop 20 file will eventually open, it actually opens in PrintMaster.

It is, however, possible to force the file to open in Print Shop 20 by doing this:

1. Open Windows Explorer, then find and right click on a Print Shop 20 *.sig file.

2. When the menu drops down, click on 'Open with...'.

3. When the 'Open with' window opens, make sure that there is a check mark in the box next to 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'.

4. If Print Shop 20 is displayed in either the 'Recommended Programs' section or the 'Other Programs' section, click on Print Shop 20, then click on OK.

If Print Shop 20 is NOT displayed in either the 'Recommended Programs' section or the 'Other Programs' section, click on the 'Browse' button.

5. When the second 'Open With' window opens, navigate to this folder

C:\Program Files (x86)\The Print Shop 20\The Print Shop 20

then, click on the tps.exe file.

6. Then, click on 'Open' then click on 'OK'.

This should cause all *.sig files to automatically open in Print Shop 20 when you double-click on them. However, since file associations are always based on the file extension of the project file, it might be necessary to repeat the process above for all Print Shop 20 file extensions.

Hope this helps....

Print Shop 21 will not work on Windows 7 operating system is there a fix?


When a ‘clean’ install is done of Print Shop 22, exactly as described in this FAQ

'Clean' Install on Win98/Me/XP/2000/Vista/Win7

Print Shop 22 should install on a 64-bit version of Windows 7, with two incidents.

1. If .NET Framework 1.1 is not already installed on the computer, the "Program Compatibility Assistant” in Windows 7 will display this message
this program has know compatibility issues


To continue with the installation, select "Run Program". After .NET Framework 1.1 is installed, the necessary updates will be pulled from the Microsoft Windows Update Service.

2. After .NET Framework 1.1 is installed, the "Program Compatibility Assistant” in Windows 7 will display a message which says that there are compatibility issues with Print Shop 22 on Windows 7 64-bit. To continue with the installation of .NET Framework 1.1, select "Run Program".

NOTE: Even though the Print Shop 22 Vista patch, which can be found here

Download Vista Patch For The Print Shop 22 and PrintMaster 17 Disk Versions

can be installed on a 64-bit version of Windows 7, the patch will not fix the problem with the Amyuni Document Converter, as it does on a 32-bit version of Windows 7 (see above). So, it will not be possible to use the 'Save As PDF' option with Print Shop 22 on a 64-bit version of Windows 7. Instead, it will be necessary to install an alternate PDF driver, then Print to PDF, as is described in this FAQ

Save as PDF vs File | Print to PDF

So far, the only other known incompatibility with Print Shop 22 on a 64-bit version of Windows 7 is that Print Shop 22 cannot be run from a shortcut on the Dell Dock that is provided with many Dell computers. A Print Shop 22 shortcut can be placed on the Dell Dock; but, attempts to start Print Shop 22 from that Dell Dock shortcut will cause several incompatibility messages to be displayed

Hi I was saving a business card as a PDF file


If you did save it as a PDF file, then you need to download the _free_ Adobe Reader software, via http://www.adobe.com , to be able to open and view the contents of the PDF file.
