Question about Broderbund PrintMaster Platinum Version 18

1 Answer

I have purchased PrintMaster Gold version 18 three times and returned two of them. My computer is operating on Windows XP service pack 2. My computer does not seem to find any data on the install disk. When the CD is inserted, nothing happens. When I go to Run, it doesn't find anything. When I go to my computer and properties, it shows 0 bytes. The front of the box says "Works with Windows Vista". On system requirements, it says it works with Windows XP SP2 (which I have) and with Windows Vista. I went to the PrintMaster web site and sent an e-mail regrding this problem. They claim to respond within 24 hours, but they have not responded in two days.

You might have a problem with your CD/DVD drive. Try inserting the CD in another computer. If the files are shown, replace your CD/DVD drive or just add another CD drive to an empty bay of your computer.

Having compatability problems installing


Hi, PrintMaster is known for having versions that are not compatible with certain Windows Operating Systems, 18 is known to not work with Vista, yet works with 7 and XP quite well. The best solution would be either to upgrade to Windows 7 or get another version. Good luck!

I have used PrintMaster 10 for a number of years on my old computer-XP. I recently purchased a new computer and wish to put the program on my laptop( Windows 7). I tried choosing the compatibilty method...


The only solution with this older software that will work is to use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate (or are willing to upgrade to one of these versions), you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them. You can't have a printer installed on both the main computer and the virtual one at the same time. You will be asked to uninstall the printer if you try.

Your other option is to upgrade to PrintMaster Platinum 18.1, see http://www.broderbund.com/ for details, which is compatible with Windows 7. This will import your Printmaster 10 projects.


I hope this helps.

I have chnged my computer system form XP to Window, now I cannot install PrintMaster Platinum Version 17? Is there any way that I can istall this program disc?


Thank you for your question.

In this instance it is easier to direct you to a video on the "Microsoft" website regarding installing older programmes. This is much clearer than trying to explain in writing.

All the best with your install.

I just purchased PrintMaster Gold and I have Windows Vista. It makes my system lock up.


Unfortunately the Program is not compatible with Vista as advertised. I have checked and many others have had the same problem. There is no fix for this that I have found.
