Re: software problem

I had the same issue when I tried to print. I had to set my default printer to an older printer. Everything else worked fine. If you get this error when printing hopefully you can reset your default printer. I don't think the software has updated printer drivers for some of the newer printers.

Re: software problem

Lola.....first try googling the exact error message may get the fix but you will at least get closer to a solution. you might also try reloading the software (after first deleting it all)....please use add/remove software in the control panel. Running scandisk as well (just in case you have a linked file) is also suggested.

Do I need Windows XP Mode?
Windows 7 has several built-in tools to help with program compatibility and Windows XP programs should be installed directly on Windows 7. Windows XP Mode runs many older Windows XP productivity programs and that are not natively compatible with Windows 7, thus helping realize cost savings and reduce possible operational downtime by extending the life of existing software. Visit the Windows 7 Compatibility Center to find software that works with Windows 7.

It's the best of both worlds: The new Windows XP Mode lets you run older Windows XP business software right on your Windows 7 desktop.

Designed primarily with small- and medium-sized businesses in mind, Windows XP Mode comes as a separate download and works only with Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise. Windows XP Mode also requires virtualization software such as Windows Virtual PC. Both are available free on the Microsoft website.

Cant'r run pyro5 on windows 7. is there a solution other than buying new pyro software?

Yes, but it may be more expensive then buying the new Cakewalk pyro Audio Creator 1.5 ($40). The cost will depend on your version of Windows 7 among other issues.

From the Cakewalk site: "pyro 5 and the other versions listed above will not launch properly under Windows 7. They will not function at all."

The work-around is to run the software such that it thinks you are using an older version of Windows. There are a two ways to do this with one computer: 1) run a dual boot system with Window 7 and an older version of windows, 2) run a virtual computer with an older version of Windows inside the Windows 7 system using Parallels, VMWare or Virtual PC.

In most cases for either option, you need a licensed version of the older Windows OS. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can get the virtual computer with XP for free. Download Microsoft's Virtual PC and then the XP mode package. Install them in order and install your Cakewalk software to the XP computer as if that is the only computer. The only issues can come up is that peripherals (like printers) can't be installed on both the real and the virtual computer and sharing files has to be done by saving to optical or other external media.

I'm not sure how much of a learning curve would be involved but there is a free audio editor available. See for more information - the Win7 version is still in beta but works.

I hope this helps.

Making printshop 21 run properly on win 7

You can either get Broderbund Print Shop Deluxe 2.0 which is Win7 compatible or use a virtual/dual boot computer with WinXP. (The Vista compatible version was Print Shop 23; so you are dealing with some significant changes in the OS. Thus the compatibility mode probably won't work. You can try right clicking on the installer and choose Properties and the Compatibility Tab. Check Run as Compatible with XP then right click on the installer again and choose Run as Administrator. Then do the Compatiblity mode again with the actual program.)

With Win7 Pro and Ultimate, you have an option to download and run XP mode which takes two programs that you download from Microsoft and install. This lets you run a virtual XP computer inside the Win7 computer for free. All other virtual computer programs or dual boot systems require a licensed version of XP.

I hope this helps.

Not a valid Win32 application

Answer:File is corrupt, bad, or missing
If the file or program you're attempting to run is corrupt or missing, Windows will be unable to execute the file properly and sometimes generate this error message.
Download files
If you downloaded this file and verified it is complete and compatible with your version of Windows, delete the file and try downloading and running it again. It's possible during the download that the file became corrupted.
Finally, if the second download does not work, try downloading the file from a different webpage. It is possible that the person or company maintaining the website mistakenly uploaded a corrupt version of the file you're attempting download.
Installing a program from a CD or other disk
If you're attempting to install a program and are getting this error, verify that the CD is clean. If the CD is dirty or bad, you could get this error during the install and/or get this error after the program has been installed because it was not copied properly onto the computer.
  • Additional information about cleaning a CD can be found on our cleaning page.
Running a program from the computer
If you're running the program from a shortcut on the computer, verify that the program is still on the computer. In some cases if the program is no longer installed on the computer you may get this error.
If the hard disk drive is corrupted or bad it can also cause working programs to fail either because not all the data can be read from the hard disk drive or because the program has become corrupted while on the drive. Run scandisk and defrag on the hard disk drive to check for any potential errors.
Long file name issue
Make sure the program or file you're attempting to run does not contain the same name as the long file name directory it is contained in. For example, executing a file named "program" in the "program files" directory can cause errors in some versions of Windows.
Additionally, if you're attempting to install a program and after the install the program does not work, you may also want to try installing the program in a different directory.
Bad file
Any file can be changed or renamed to be a .exe file. If you're downloading the file, make sure the file is supposed to be a .exe file and that it's not being changed. If you're attempting to create a .exe, file make sure you're compiling the file for Windows and never just rename a file to a .exe file. For example, renaming a .bat file to a .exe file will not make the file an executable file. For a file to become an executable file it needs to either be compiled or converted through a software program designed to convert the file.
File is not designed for your version of Windows
If you're trying to run a program that is not designed for your version of Windows you may get this error. Although many older programs designed to work in older versions of Windows will work with new versions of Windows, unfortunately, not all programs will work.
  • If the program is an older MS-DOS program or early Windows program you may get this error.
  • If the program is designed for a 64-bit version of Windows and you're running it in a 32-bit version of Windows, it will not work and generate this error.
If you're attempting to run an older computer game in a new version of Windows, see document CH000587 for additional suggestions about getting older games to work in Windows.
File is a virus, worm, or other malware file
This error can be generated by a file that is a virus, worm, trojan, or other type of malware file. Often, this will be caused because the virus scanner installed in the computer will not allow the file to be installed or run. Try scanning the file to verify it is not a virus and/or infected.
If the file has been checked and is clean, it is still possible that the virus protection program and/or another program installed on the computer is causing issues during the install or execution of the program. Boot the computer into Safe Mode and try running the program; booting the computer into Safe Mode will make sure nothing is running in the background that could be causing this issue. Additional information about Safe Mode can be found on document CHSAFE.
Hardware incompatibility
If you're getting this error during the installation of a program it's also possible that the CD-ROM drive or the drive you're installing the program from is not compatible with Windows or has drivers that are not compatible with Windows.
Download the latest drivers for your CD drive or other drive through our drivers page.
