CLARIS DRAW 1.0 print problem with Windows XP

I can' get my CLARIS DRAW 1.0 for PCs to print fills or patterns in color. The application runs correctly on my PC and the monitor displays everything correctly in color. When the document prints all color objects appear in grey scale. Text does print in color.

This problem started with Windows XP. Draw application worked fine with Windows 98SE.

Re: CLARIS DRAW 1.0 print problem with Windows XP

You need to download the ClarisDraw 1.0v4 update.

This is the Read Me included as part of the ClarisDraw 1.0v4 Updater.

Important: There is no ClarisDraw 1.0v4 Updater for Windows, the latest update for Windows is ClarisDraw 1.0v3.

This information was provided by Claris Corporation on 16 March 1998, and incorporated into Apple Computer's Tech Info Library.

Note: This article mentions software updates. You may search for software updates in the Software Updates Library at following URL: ""

By the way, how much do want your ClarisDraw 1.0 application for ? Trade? Swap?

Re: CLARIS DRAW 1.0 print problem with Windows XP

Sounds like old software (1995) with a much newer operating system. I would upgrade to whatever is compatible with XP or take your OS back to what works with the software. I'd go with Corel Draw with XP. Vintage software has to be run with the same vintage OS to work properly. Hope this helps!

If this does not work then you can check the file in the online service and see whether really to recover the file. If there is hope, then to open this buggy file, you must either manually delve into binary code or to have a special app to open damaged cdr files...I from my experience can recommend a good program CDR Repair Kit for this. Hope I helped you!)

Saved illustrator 10 file gets corrupted

Check for a damaged pattern, gradient, or custom color
To determine if the problem is caused by a damaged pattern, gradient, or custom color:

1. Choose Edit > Select All and change the fill and stroke to process black.
2. Perform task 4 again to determine whether the problem occurs in a new file that does not contain the patterns, gradients, or spot colors. If the problem does not recur, re-create the pattern, gradient, or spot color in the original file.

I have upgraded from XP professional to widows 7 now I cannot install my Print Artist grande suite. please help Lorraine

If a program cannot be run under Windows 7 because of compatibility issues you have to right click on the executable file that will start the application and click Properties.

Select Compatibility tab and select the Windows XP version.

This should work but if it doesn't there is nothing you can do except complain to Sierra to make a fix for it.

My favourite programme - Print Artist 4 which has worked with all my computers up to and including XP will not work with Windows 7 - what can I do?

It means that this application is not compatible with Vista or Windows 7. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, all you have to do is run the app in XP mode, which is really running an XP virtual machine inside of Windows 7. Just look in Windows help for instructions on how to do it. If you have Home Premium or less, they do not have XP mode. Instead you can download Virtual PC 2007 SP1 from the Microsoft web site for free, install it, then create a virtual machine that uses XP. You will have to have a licensed copy of XP to install on the virtual machine. Then install PrintArtist on the virtual machine and you are ready to go. You can use the virtual machine and Windows 7 on the host system simultaneously and can even exchange data between the two.

I am unable to open Micrografx Windows Draw 6. I used it for clip art but now it won't open.

Hello, I had the same problem. windows draw has been working for years under Windows XP then suddenly impossible. I think there is a conflict with others programs i installed.
I found THE solution after reading many topics on the net :
Install acrobat reader 4 on your system. Then run acrobat reader 4. Last, run Micrografx windows draw 6 while acrobat reader 4 is running on your system too.
Maybe it works with a more recent version of acrobat reader but i didn't try. Maybe this solution works also with windows draw 5 but i didn't try.

Claris Draw v1.0v3 will not start with XP

I found that Draw runs on XP but I have to tell it each time it opens where to find the CLARIS folder, and when it does run it won't respond to the OPEN menu item. I can still open files though by clicking on the file to open, but it's pretty inconvenient. Looks like I'm going to have to run the program on my old pre-XP windows machine.
