P!3DHome has stopped working

I encountered the same problem. In my case, the Punch! Landscape file saved into a folder on my C: drive called Program Files (x86). I dragged the entire folder for Punch! Landscape from the Program Files (x86) folder into the Program Files folder. I've had this same problem with games I've downloaded from MSN in the past, and this fix has always worked.

Can not load software on vista

This software is not compatible with Windows Vista. I believe you can only use it with XP. 3D Home Architect Deluxe from Broderbund has been discontinued.
Only works with:
Microsoft Windows 98/Me/2000/Xp Pentium II class processor (300 MHz or higher) 96 MB RAM (128 MB Recommended)

There is a version 6.0 of this software but has bad reviews.
I found a better rated software like this one:
Home Design Architectural Series 18
This has received "TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award".

3D live view is black.

A fix for my setup (Windows Vista, Dell Latitude D530, Mobile Intel Chipset 965 Express) was to reduce the screen's colour depth from 32 bit to 16 bit. Do this via Control Panel->Adjust screen resolution.

How much memory does your video card support?

Chances are it isn't enough for 3D animation. You might want to go with a 256mb video memory card.

Ceiling design Plank and beam with pitch

I am not sure what Punch Plat you are using, however these are some notes and solutions that may help
1 - Crown moldings in Punch don't slope
2 - Ceiling beams --> check your Power Tools--> If your version has the Celing designer, you can use this tool to create the beams--> or use solution # 3
3 - Ceiling beams --> you can cevelop them in the 3D Workshop Power Tool --> set the pitch--> texture as necessary
4 - You will find ready to use beams in --> Obejcts--> Faux Wood beams

Print problems

Print to fit page prints thumbnail size image.

trnsp.gif Answer Zoom out to make your design appear on a single screen, drag and draw a box around it, using the Select Objects Tool. Once it's all selected, go to Edit > copy, File > new, Edit > paste. Print from this new file.
Note: this may be caused by an extraneous object on an outer edge of your plan. When you zoom out, pan around your design to see if there is a stray object, which you can delete.

Punch Software - Professional Home Design Suite

Check your video card memory. Live view uses a lot and it pays to switch it off during normal operations and just use it to check object placement every now and again.
