I installed window 7 into my laptop. My printmaster platinum 18 is now not working properly. What can I do to resolve this issue

Right click on the program shortcut click on properties from the menu and click on the compatibility tab , check "Run this program in compatibility mode of windows xx" and select the version of windows in which the program used to run. Apply the settings and open the program again. If the program still doesnt work try to reinstall or get an updated version for windows 7 maybe Print Master 2010.

When I installed and tried to run your program I get the following error: This application requires using the 4.73 help system or a more recent version. I am running Windows 7. What is the problem? Can...

The specs for that program shows the last operating system it was designed for was XP. Let's try the easy fix first. ClickStart, type Compatibility in the search field, and click theEnter key. This will bring up the Program Compatibility troubleshooter. ClickNext and it do a quick check on your machine. It will ask you toSelect the program you're having problems with and click Next. Click Troubleshoot Program, then check the box forThe program worked in earlier viersions of Windows... Click Windows XP (Service Pack 2)and click Next. Click the box for Start the program. It will attempt to open the program as if you were running XP. After the program attempts to open, clickNext. Now it will ask if it worked for you. If so, click Yes, save these settings for this program. If you clicked Yes, every time you open the program now it will open as if it was running in XP. You're done if this worked!
Sometimes that method doesn't work. For those cases, there is a new feature called XP Mode, which will install a virtual machine for you to run your program in. It's not too hard to get configured; it actually installs a legal copy of Windows XP for you to run your program in. Here's a Microsoft article on how to get it set up: XP mode will now work even if you don't have the chip installed for Hardware Assisted Virtualization Technology.

MS Wrd 2002 installs everytime I open program.

In most cases, Microsoft Word is trying to find the dll's that are associated to it to open the program. In order to resolve this issue.

Open start or windows logo, settings or control panel, control panel in windows xp, open add/remove programs in windows xp or program features in windows vista or windows 7. Scroll down to Microsoft Office 2002 and click on add/remove. When you do this there will be an option to repair. Click repair. From here it will diagnose which files are not correctly associated and will attempt to repair those broken links.

Once the repair is complete you should be able to open Microsoft Word with no problems.

Extra info:

Windows updates can also be a culprit in these issues. Installing add-ons that should not be enabled in Microsoft Word until you are in the actual application.

if you cannot resolve the issue that way, you can open the run command and type winword /a or /s these are safe mode features built into Microsoft Word to disable add-ons.

Because you must use another program to send it - like Outlook.
Just do it the correct way: save the ppt file on your pc, close PowerPoint, open your mail program (Outlook or whatever) , compose a new mail , attach the ppt file to it and send the message to its destination.

Will the alarm go off or not?

Hi, alarms can be programmed to chime/not chime etc. Simple way is actually test it just to be sure. Set the alarm and try the door. If it doesnt work, then the door sensor could be faulty OR that chanel could have been programmed to be bypassed. Will require the user man for programming. Best of luck

Windows Movie Maker wont Publish video

Random suggestion that you have likely already tried. After you uninstalled did you go to your c drive, program files and delete the folder? I had issues with another program and found that the existing folder was the problem. After I deleted it and rebooted and then installed again it worked perfectly.

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?

as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is.
but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!

try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..

good luck..
if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!
