Re: My computer says I have compatability issues with the...
Go to start button in tool bar click on it and the programs section will drop down
if the heading is still there right click on it and down the bottom of the drop down box there will be a properties heading
right click on that and find compatibility tag and open it up
section will appear that states compatible for
click tick in the box and the list of programs will show click on your system for the computer ( XP-vista -windows 7 etc )
go apply and ok
if you have nothing to work with at all the make sure when downloading the program that you are downloading a program that is for your operating system
By that I mean the program may be windows essentials and if you look closely there will be a list of compatible op systems such as xp-vista/windows 7,7,10 or others
you will require the download for your operating system in the computer

1. Goto tools (on the top) on Internet Explorer 8 or 9, you can try it for 7 too.
2. Click on Compatibility view settings.
3. uncheck "Include updated websites list from Microsoft".
5. Uncheck "Display all websites in compatibility view" if it is checked.
4. Click on close, and you are done refresh the gmail page and you are good to go.
Try restarting your computer and then try to open the program again.
If that doesn't fix it, Uninstall GIMP and re-download the program and install again.
If the problem persists after that, check CNET downloads for previous versions that would be compatible with your computer.
You can either get Broderbund Print Shop Deluxe 2.0 which is Win7 compatible or use a virtual/dual boot computer with WinXP. (The Vista compatible version was Print Shop 23; so you are dealing with some significant changes in the OS. Thus the compatibility mode probably won't work. You can try right clicking on the installer and choose Properties and the Compatibility Tab. Check Run as Compatible with XP then right click on the installer again and choose Run as Administrator. Then do the Compatiblity mode again with the actual program.)
With Win7 Pro and Ultimate, you have an option to download and run XP mode which takes two programs that you download from Microsoft and install. This lets you run a virtual XP computer inside the Win7 computer for free. All other virtual computer programs or dual boot systems require a licensed version of XP.
The recommended solution is to upgrade for version 18.
I'd guess you already tried running the installer by choosing Run this program in compatibility mode (by right clicking and choosing properties) and then right clicking again and Run as administrator.
Your next option is to run a virtual PC within your Win7 computer (or a dual boot system) with a compatible OS running on the "other" machine. With Win7 Pro and Ultimate, there is an option to download two programs and install them for a free WinXP virtual computer (XP mode). For the other primary OS's you'll need to have a valid license of the compatible OS to install in program that runs the virtualization or the second boot disc. Then install the Printmaster in the "machine" with the correct OS. You may find you need to save the files to external media to transfer them. (The virtual computer won't let you have one printer installed on both the virtual system and the real computer.)
There may be a workaround or two. First, Win7 wants a different installer. Try running the installer in a Compatability mode (right click on the exe, choose properties, click on the Compatability tab and put a check in the box for run this program in the compatability mode, use the drop down to choose the latest OS that you know will run the program, then right click again on the program and choose run as administrator). If your new computer uses 64-bit Win7, this is even less likely to work. Microsoft needs signed files in 64-bit. Do the same compatability with the program if it installs.
If that doesn't work, try installing a virtual computer with an OS that runs the program in your Win7 machine (The free XP mode is available in Win7 Pro and Ultimate. It takes two downloads from Microsoft to install the computer and then install the program as if the XP mode was the only computer.)
Otherwise, upgrade the program. (The Microsoft compatability center gives information pending on the program.)
It probably a mismatch between resolution, colour depth and refresh rates. Before you disconnect the CRT change the resolution to 640x480 and 16 colours with a 60Hz refresh. Then connect the LCD and adjust the settings
