Question about Sierra Print Artist Platinum

1 Answer

Had to redo computer and reinstall. PA 4. won't install.

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 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"""

Windows XP is no longer supported. You have 2 browsers that are reporting the OS to the server and it is not allowing it to run those browsers.

Can i use this graphic card for my acer asphire 4736Z laptop?

You cannot. This graphics card uses an AGP port, which is generally only present in older desktop computers.

Hi.. my name is Alex I have my us122 for about 5 years,but used it ones or twise becouse installation conflicts with my windowsXP.. last time I could get the sound out of it--was 2 years ago.. but...

Alex you have to get the drivers for it once you install it back into your computer. Depending on which operating system you are using I personally like XP for sound recording or playback cards. Less is best when mixing sound files no glitches you know what I mean. Now because of updates that happen all the time with any hardware you have to keep up with the updates go to the manufacturers web site and download the latest drivers always. 5 years ago was a while back in the computing world we live in and most likely or hopefully there is support for Win 7 for this card. If this is the system you are using if you have the install disc for this card reinstall it first. John

My wife bought me photo explosion several years ago and I used it on my Windows XP. I recently found it again and installed in on my Windows Vista. I can't get it to open up. Thanks , Joe H.

This is because your software version is not compatible with Vista.

Try using "Windows Vista Compatibility Mode" for the older software, Link . No assurance it will work!

Hope it helps.

Just won't work anymore!

I had the same problem, and a friend said photo explosion was conflicting with internet explorer 6. I uninstalled internet explorer version 6, and that worked for about 3 months. Now, the program won't run again. But, I did just install firefox, so maybe that's it.....

When you say "it isn't bootable from the cd", do you mean the cd isn't a bootable cd?, or the computer isn't configured to boot from a cd? If the latter, I suggest obtaining a bootable ME cd, but if the computer isn't configured to boot from a cd, depending on the computer motherboard, you will need to access the bios setup, either by pressing the 'DEL', 'F1', or 'F10' key during boot, then under a section called 'boot' or 'advanced-->peripherals' should be the settings on changing the boot sequence, if it's set to this sequence:- 1........REMOVABLE DEVICE 2........HD 3........CDROM 4........NETWORK (not available on some systems) You will need to change the sequence to:- 1.......CDROM 2.......REMOVAL DEVICE 3.......HD 4.......NETWORK (Not available on some systems) Then press the relevent key to 'save & exit', this will enable you to use an ME bootable cd to re-install ME on a clean hard drive.
