Question about Sierra Print Artist Platinum
Years ago, with an older computer there were glitches in adding the graphics but I had printed out instructions how to add the second disc (3 of 4) and it worked. I have since tossed them.
NOW I can't even get the basic program to load.
Have computers gotten such that they don't recognise the old PA 4?
It happened with an old family tree maker...i could hear the computer laughing at me.....
I am running an xp.
I tried calling sierra help, but apparantly there isn't any sierra or help anymore.
I found a solution for installing Sierra Print Artist 4 on XP at this site
http://forum.oldversion.com/programs-support/5831-printartist-4-a.html I did it, works great!
Posting below, thanks to izzy_eckerslike :
"""There is a way to force your computer to load print artist 4
Click on display /settings & reduce colour quality to 16 bit & reduce your screen resolution to 800X600
Then insert the Printartist disk & select install, as before you will see the Sierra logo on your taskbar but it won't move or do anything.
Now put your screen settings back the way they were before & you should see the install screen jump off the taskbar so you can access it.
It will test your computer & tell you it fails as it can't recognise newer technology but ignore that & select 'install anyway' & all should be working"""
