Micrografx creatacard 3 gold - repeat only micrografx, not american greetings


Micrografx Creatacard Gold 3 was created back in the Windows 98 days and most likely the installer is a 16-bit installer. Windows XP worked OK with 16-bit installers, but Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, 8.1 will not work. There is a work-around I found ( I actually found this fix for installing Photoshop 7 under Windows 7) and it works! I was able to install Photoshop 7.0.1 under Windows 7 Pro x64 edition and it works great!

Perform a search for Install-Photoshop-6-or-7-on-Windows-7 or go to this website http://www.wikihow.com/Install-Photoshop-6-or-7-on-Windows-7. Under this website, Look at Method 3 of 3 .

Stuff you will need:

1. A working Windows XP -SP3 system where you can install the Free Scalable Smart Package. You may be asking why? You will need to install the Micrografx Creatacard Gold 3 on this system with the "Discovery Program" running so it can create a new 32-bit installer
2. A CD-RW or a Memory Stick where you can copy the new .MSI file created and run it from Windows 7 x86 or x64 bit system.
3. Download the Free Scalable SmartPackager program. This used to be called WinInstall LE but they have since changed the name. You can find the program here http://www.scalable.com/smart-packager-ce-msi-package/. This is Free, but you still need to register to get the software. The latest version as of last week is v2.0.2.
4. Printed out instructions from the website so you can follow along. Once you perform this, you may end up trying this for other "older" software as well.

Basic Overview:

1. Under your Windows XP - SP3 system, install the Packaging software called Scalable SmartPackager v2.0.2

2. Once you have installed the SmartPackage program, it is a good idea to Reboot your system so all files get updated properly.

3. Start the icon called Smart Packager.

4. Under Smart Package, make sure you are under the Welcome screen and click on the Discover a new Package under Common Tasks.

5. When the Blue Discovery screen pops up, click on the Next button

6. Under the New Package Information screen, type out Creatacard Gold3 or something that you like

7. Under the Output Folder, Click the Browse button and select a folder or location where you want the new Creatacard Gold3.msi to be saved. Make sure you click on the Show advanced Options box below and Then Click Next

8. On this screen, you will now need to Click on the Start Discovery. This is what the SmartInstaller program will use to see where all the files are being installed to, etc when you run the Creatacard Gold 3 installer.

9. Insert the Micrografx Creatacard Gold 3 CD in the drive and install the program like you normally would. Please remember to install any of the Extra Free fonts as well during this time since this will be the only time you will have to create a new 32-bit installer (unless you run this process again)

10. After the Creatacard Gold 3 program has installed, verify it is working by Running the program and testing out various things within the program. (This is while the Discovery is still running in the background)

11. Once you have verified the Creatacard Gold 3 program is running properly (under the Windows XP system) then go back to the Discovery window and click on the Red Stop Discovery button and then click on the Next Button.

12. Make sure the Add new package to Smart Packager is checked and then click on the Finish button. This will now save the new "updated installer" MSI file over to the folder location you specified under option 7 above.

13. Copy this new *.MSI file you just created and either burn it to a CD-RW or copy to a Flash drive and take this file over to your Windows 7 system.

Please note, these instructions are an overview and may not contain the entire correct order. The last time I performed this was back in January 2014 when I first discovered the article about using Scalable Smart Packager to re-create an installer file into a true 32-bit installer.

For me so far, the installer has worked with Photoshop 7 and several Photshop plugins like KPT5, KPT7, etc.

I make no guarantees that this will work in your situation but it could not Hurt.

Plus, should you have problems removing this program I would recommend you try this Free program called Revo Uninstaller v1.95. This is Free for Home/Personal use only.

Hopefully you can use the above instructions I provided and get this great program to work under Windows 7.

Please let us know if this process worked for you or not.

What is a device id


Beautiful!!! Good News!!! For All MICROGRAFX DRAW 5 guys.
I was tired looking for patches to run mi MICROGRAFX DRAW 5 in 64bit computer, with no success. I gave up.
But I installed Windows 8 recently in my computer, and I found out that Windows 8 let me install my very loved program MICROGRAFX DRAW 5.
And it is running as it should be. really nice. I am really happy for it. I kicked windows 7 out.
As soon as Windows 8 received the installation command; it told me that a 16bit program needs a compatibility. Then it asked me if I want to have that.
I clicked YES; and Windows 8 did all the work. The program got installed seamless in seconds; with all the features.
Sincerely; Francisco.

Need micrografx Graphic Suite upgrade for Windows 7


Micrografx was sold to Corel in 2009, who then released the program as Corel Designer 9. You can upgrade to X5, the latest version, here.

Unable to use Micrografx Picture Publisher 10.0 with Win 7


Make sure that Micrografx Picture Publisher 10 pro installs into the X66 Program files folder.By default it will always install into the 64 bit program file if you have a 64bit installed.
If you have the 32 bit Windows 7 installed then right click with your mouse on the program before opening it up and select compatibility mode.Select XP SP3 compatibility mode.This works fine on my Windows 7 32bit. Use the first paragraph method if you have the 64bit Windows 7.

Just installed Micrografx Picture Publisher 10 from the original disc. When I try to run it, I get the following error Micrografx Picture Publisher Digital Camera Edition has stopped working It says...


I had the same message trying vista. Windows 7 offers running older programs in XP or even Win 98 SE mode. That fixed the problem for me. Further I recommend running it as administrator. Hope it helps.

I really love this program. I have recently upgraded my computer to Window 7 64 bit and this program runs 16 bit is there any way I can make windows 64 bit compatible with this program.


There is a way of having micrografx draw install and run properly on windows 7 64-bit and also 32bit

The discovery is that most of these programs are not really 16 bit

If you want check out the website at

I am unable to open Micrografx Windows Draw 6. I used it for clip art but now it won't open.


Hello, I had the same problem. windows draw has been working for years under Windows XP then suddenly impossible. I think there is a conflict with others programs i installed.
I found THE solution after reading many topics on the net :
Install acrobat reader 4 on your system. Then run acrobat reader 4. Last, run Micrografx windows draw 6 while acrobat reader 4 is running on your system too.
Maybe it works with a more recent version of acrobat reader but i didn't try. Maybe this solution works also with windows draw 5 but i didn't try.
Enjoy

Micrografx Picture Publisher 8 not working with my Vista


I solved it!
The software installs OK.
After installation, reboot.
When you need to open the program, right-click on the Micrografx icon and select Run as Administrator. A yellow window pops up saying "An unidentified program want access to your computer," with pp80.exe as "Unidentified program" - that is actually Micrografx Pictures. Click "Allow." The program runs normally. The only caviat is that you will have to perform this routine every time you have to run Micrografx Pictures. But again, it takes 5 seconds to do it, and I love the program, having used it for over 10 years. Photoshop is far more advanced but it takes time to master it, and I do with Micrografx the same quality work as many with Photoshop.
Of course, Janet, you and I have to come to grips with the fact that Micrografx is pretty much dead, and Photoshop is alive and blooming. Maybe this Vista incident is a sign for us to learn Photoshop?
