My Art Explosion Greeting Card Deluxe Factory 2 software will not work on my Toshiba Satellite A200 laptop. I am using Windows Vista. Please can you advise?

Unfortunately the Windows OS has changed significantly since that software was released. Nova Developement now has the Greeting Card Factory Deluxe version 8 for XP/Vista/7.

If you have the 64-bit Vista, you may not be able to get the old software to work and need the upgrade or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS (see below). To check your OS version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System .

You can try running the program in the compatibility mode - this will work best with software for XP not Win95-NT. Right click on the installer and select Properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and choose Run this program as compatible with (an older version of Windows). Click on the check box and use the drop-down menu to select the older OS. Save the change by clicking apply then close the window. Right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

If the program installs, do the same compatibility steps for the program's exe file itself. (You don't need to run as administrator though.)

Alternatively, you can run a dual boot or virtual computer with an older Windows OS. (Programs like Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare let you run a virtual computer inside the Vista system with a computer that can handle virtualization.) Unfortunately, you usually need a licensed version of Windows to do this. (Win7 Pro and Ultimate let you do this free with Virtual PC and XP mode.) Then install the software normally in the virtual computer or when booted into the older version of Windows. File transfer can be tricky with the virtual computer - you need to save files to external media (flash drive or optical disc). Printers can't be installed on both the real and virtual computer at the same time.

I hope this helps.

I am currently running windows Vista. Is there any updates I need to install?

no probably you r being blocked from running this program . you can only solve this if you use windows xp or windows 7. so mget a copy of windows xp . install it beside vista if you want to keep vista or replace xp with vista and then ionstall the program in it. it will surely take installation.

I have a new computer with Windows Vista. I have

No it looks like they stopped the support at the old one, this means they did'nt make any drivers for the old one to function on vista.
Vista uses a very diferent driver model than xp does.
The drivers for xp won't work in any way on vista.

Will Custom LandDesigner 3D work OK using Microsoft Vista ? I see it mentions Windows 95, 98 and 2000. How about XP? Thank you.

If it will work on 2000 then it will work in XP, But with Vista it might not, after installing it on Vista! Right click on the Icon you use to start the program, go to Advance and change the option to run as XP SP2 option and give that a go

Can not determine if this program will run on Windows Vista 64bit

Sounds like Compatibility Mode may help.

To configure the compatibility mode for an application, just locate the installation directory and right click on the .exe, selecting Properties from the menu.
Select the Compatibility tab:
You can choose to run the program in Windows XP compatibility mode, or even all the way back to Windows 95 compatibility.
Probably the most useful setting to start off with would be to disable the visual themes and desktop composition, if you can't get things working. If you are trying to run a video game, you will often need to choose "Run this program as an administrator". You'll have to play around with it, but most likely you can get your application working this way.

Good Luck

You need to go to the Lexmark support site and A) Make sure you are using the latest driver and specifically one that works with Vista and B) If none exist then your existing driver may have become corrupted...try it again (reinstall). Tango.
