SOURCE: cannot connect to online projects in american

You have to make sure that you allow your program to access the internet. By default, the firewall is set to block all of your programs. To make an exception:

Click the Start button, go to Control Panel, click Security, and then click the Windows Firewall.

In the left pane, click "allow a program through Windows Firewall."

You have to have an adminstrator account, and you may be prompted for the password at this point.

Check box next to the American Greetings, and then click OK.
The other problem you can run into is with active x controls. Allow programs you trust to run this code, or you will not have full use.

I hope this helped. If you have time, please let me know if this addressed your problem by rating the solution before you go. Thanks for using fixya!

Go to your control panel from start menu if using any OS other than Windows8. (W8 control panel=settings). At control panel menu, locate "change or uninstall program". Click on this selection and all of your installed programs will appear. Scroll own until "American Greetings Createacard" (or close variation) appears and highlight and click this selection. Now an uninstall option appears either on the same highlighted line or at top. Click uninstall and follow prompts if any appear; clicking "ok" or "yes" if they do. Once this program has uninstalled, you can download it again from the original source and it should operate now as intended.

Can I load American Greetings CreataCard Paltinum 6 on Windows 7?

Yes, almost all software is backwards compatible, it's when you buy software that requires a more updated OS where you have problems.

My CreataCard Gold 7 program will not open, I get the message "AGCCard cannot determine configuration." I attempt to uninstall and reinstall the Broderbund American Greetings CreataCard Gold 7...

After uninstalling the program, go to start, Search, for files and folders and put *creatacard gold* in the search box using the asterisks on both sides. Bu sure to delete any files that are found involving creatacard gold7. Then restart your computer. It sounds like you are having a configuration problem. Is the operating system you are using listed on the configuration of the Creatacard Gold program as a operating system that this software will work on?

You could try and reinstall and if using windows, try using the the program compatability wizard found in the accessories folder in the programs folder. This might help make the program work properly. Alternatively, you may have to get a another version of creatacard gold if it does not work with your operating system. Broderbund may have a download on their site to help make your software work on you operating system. Not having any additional details about your issue, I cannot be certain.

Let me know if I can assist you furhter. Please include any details possible about the issue so I may be of assistance to you.

I have tried several times to uninstall creatacard select 7. I can't uninstall it. I'm desperate. Please tell me what to do.

Go to Program Files in your computer's main-drive and delete the folder for create-a-card. If that doesn't work, or it says access denied, restart windows in safe mode and try it again.

Creatacard Platinmum 6 won't work with Windows Vista.

CreataCard Platinum 6 is designed to be used with Windows 95/98/2000/Me or NT 4 and XP, therefore in order to run it in Vista I'd suggest to run your program using Compatinity Mode --> Go to your Desktop --> Right click on the program icon--> Properties-->Compatibility--> select one of the versions above
