Question about Broderbund The Print Shop 20 Deluxe for PC

1 Answer

I own Broderbund's Print Shop Deluxe Version 20 and recently had to purchase a new computer. It came pre-loaded with Windows 7, and now Windows says it will not touch my stinky old version of The Printshop, haughtily claiming that it's drivers are FAAAAR too advanced to know what to do with such a dinosaur program (circa 2002-2003)! Are there any fixes to this problem other than to bow down to the champagne tastes of my oh, so cutting edge Windows 7?

U can check to see if there is a Broderbund patch to enable it to work in the win 7 environment. If not available, you are screwed.
Who needs seven ?- go back to XP and enjoy your program to the fullest.

This is one of the most common complaints with Vista - your old programs may not work. Your only solutions are to either buy a copy of Windows XP (what I would do, personally) and lose the Vista, or find a Vista-compatible version of Printshop. You can try this link, which Microsoft says it will update for free to make your old printshop compatable. If that doesn't work, there are 1000's of excellent free print programs at download.com here.

The Windows® Vista Program Compatibility Wizard can allow older programs that were not designed for use with Windows® Vista to run on Windows® Vista.

The Program Compatibility Wizard prompts you to test the program in different modes (environments) and with various settings. For example, if the program was originally designed to run on Windows® XP2_bing.gif, set the compatibility mode to Windows® XP and try running the program again. If successful, the program will start in that mode each time. The wizard also allows the use of different settings, such as switching the display to 256 colors and the screen resolution2_bing.gif to 640 x 480 pixels.

To run the Program Compatibility Wizard, complete the steps below:

  1. Close all programs and windows and return to the desktop.
  2. Click the Start button on the Windows® taskbar. The Start Menu will appear.
  3. Click on Control Panel. The Control Panel window will appear.
  4. Click on Programs. Additional program options will display.
  5. In the Programs and Features section click the link Use An Older Program With This Version of Windows. The Program Compatibility Wizard will launch.
  6. Click Next to Continue.
  7. Click the “I want to choose from a list of programs” radio2_bing.gif button and click Next. A list of programs will display.
  8. Select the program that is to run in a Compatibility Mode and click Next to continue. A list of Compatibility Modes will display.
  9. Click the radio button next to the desired Compatibility Mode and click Next. A list of display settings will display.

    NOTE: These display settings are not available options in Windows® Vista. They are only available when running a program in Program Compatibility Mode. The only reason to choose either of these settings is if you are experiencing difficulty installing or running an older application designed to run in Windows® 95, Windows® ME or Windows® 98. If all options remain unchecked, then the current Colors and Screen Resolution settings will not be altered.

    By default, Windows® Vista uses visual themes that may change the appearance or behavior of other programs, especially those games or educational programs that include intensive graphics and animation. To prevent the visual themes from affecting these programs, check Disable Visual Themes.

  10. Choose the desired display settings and click Next to continue. Administrator privilege options will display.
  11. Choose the desired administrator privilege setting and click Next to continue. A Test Your Compatibility Settings window will display.
  12. Verify that the settings are correct. And click Next to continue.

    NOTE: If the settings are not correct, click the Back button to return to the previous screen (or screens) and make the necessary changes.

  13. With the correct settings selected and showing in the "Test Your Compatibility Settings" window, click Next. The selected program will launch.
  14. Run the program to test the settings.
  15. After testing the settings, or close the program to return to the Program Compatibility Wizard.

    NOTE: After the program is closed, a window with the question "Did the program work correctly?" will appear. The "Yes. Set this program to always use these compatibility settings" will be selected.

  16. If the program functioned properly using the compatibility mode that was selected above click Next. The Program Compatibility Data window will open.

    NOTE: If the program did not function correctly, click "No, try different compatibility settings" and complete the Wizard. After completing the wizard, try the program again.

  17. Choose Yes or Now and click Next to continue. The Completing the Program Compatibility Wizard window will appear. Click Finish to close the window.
  18. Launch and use the program.
NOTE: If you have questions regarding the Program Compatibility Wizard or Windows® Vista (or both), contact Microsoft®, or go to http://www.microsoft.com for additional information.

SOURCE: We have CREATACARD GOLD 7

Hello,

well there is the Gold 8
Creatacard-Gold-8/dp/B00009APG9/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=software&qid=1288806903&sr=1-1">http://www.amazon.com/American-Greetings-Creatacard-Gold-8/dp/B00009APG9/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=software&qid=1288806903&sr=1-1

that atleast works with windows XP, and generally the programs that run on windows xp also run on windows 7 in my personal experience. But I can't guarantee it. windows 7 also has a compitibility mode that you can use to simulate windows XP or older.

You can install the version gold 7 and right click on its shortcut and select "Troubleshoot compatibility"

You can also manually try different compatibility settings by right clicking on the shortcut and selecting properties, then open the compatibility tab

Feel free to experiement and try all the possibilties offered on this page to get the program to work.

let me know if you have any further questions or if you require further assistance.

I purchased printshop 20 deluxe and installed on my computer which has windows 7 installed on it. The installation shows it was successful however when I try to run the printshop program it tries to start...


The Print Shop version 20 Deluxe for PC is not compatible with Windows 7. The newer Version 23 is compatible. This is due to software compatibility issues with Windows 7.

You can check for Win 7 Compatibility for "software or hardware" @ Windows 7 Compatibility Center

It will not run on Win 7, even when you are using the Compatibility Mode options. Too bad you have to get the newer version 23.


Hope it helps.
