    I'm using Print Shop 20, not 22 or 23. Also, I am not trying to go from one version to another...the projects are in the same version I'm still using.

When I attempt to open a word document, I get a error message

You made a backup? If yes, then:
Start MSWord.
Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Open.
Locate the folder in which you last saved the missing file.
In the Files of type list, click All Files. The backup file usually has the name "Backup of" followed by the name of the missing file.
Click the backup file, and then click Open.

I had to reinstall video pro 3x and now I cant open my previous projects

Dear Donna,

Obviously you might have saved your projects in a folder other than the default Corel Video Pro X3 folder. Even, if they are there on uninstalling the software asks for deleting user data. If they were there and you had deleted the user data than you shall need a File Recovery tool to get your files back.

If they are not in the default folder and projects files are still there on your system, you can easily double click and open them again in Videostudio X3. Once, you have uninstalled the s/w and then installed it back the Recently Open/Projects list is deleted by default. Once, you shall start opening your projects again and again the list shall compile again.

Problem opening Pinnacle Studio Plus 9 Project

I just purchased your new software program and we used it to design a certificate. If we send the certificate as an attachment it just ends up as mess that is unreadable. What program do we need to use to...

Well, this is not Microsoft support, this is a community site of volunteers helping others :)

Now, what you need is a piece of software that will convert your certificate or whatever you will design into a PDF document, which will maintain the formatting, fonts and everything, when sent as an attachment to e-mail and opened on any system - hence the name Portable Document Format.

The simplest way is to install PDF Creator, which is free software. Go to this site, download and install:
It will create a new "virtual" printer, to which you will print the created document. PDF Creator will take over and ask you for document title and file name under which you want it saved. Once you save it on your hard disk, it will open in your PDF reader (if you don't have one installed, which is unlikely, then read bottom) and you will see the document exactly as everyone else will see it. Then you can attach this file to your e-mail message and you're in business.

To get a PDF reader go to and install, proceeding as instructed.

Don't forget to come back with a testimonial if helped please :)

File/Folder Permission Message in Pinnacle Studio 11 Plus

Hello welcome to FIxya!

Here you can check this procedure on how to open your files again.

"1) Check your Recycle Bin
2) Do a Folder/File Search for each of the Grey Folder Project names. This will display all Folders & Files with that Project Name. You are looking for an .stx File. If it's there, right-Click on Project Name / Open Containing Folder & Copy it to your My Projects Folder. Then you should have both the Grey Folder & .stx File for the same Project name, showing in your My Projects Folder.
If the Search doesn't display a .stx File, you can create a new one, by Opening a New empty Project, which will create a My Movie Grey Folder & a My Movie .stx File, Save to your My Projects Folder. Delete the My Movie Grey Folder & Rename the My Movie .stx File to the same name as your original Grey Folder."
So ...after finding my "lost" movie file, with its file name, under Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects i then went through the following procedures using your great advice Colour;
  1. Make a copy of your found "lost" movie grey film icon file by right mouse clicking on your lost file and choosing "copy". Paste the copy into another folder in Documents where you can find it if need be
  2. Then go back to Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects and right mouse click onto your grey film icon. Choose "rename". Then rename your "lost" grey film icon to a new file name but do not put .stc at the end of the file name, if you are operating VISTA and Pinnacle 12. This is important because Pinnacle 12 won't recognise the file later if you have .stc in the file name
  3. Open Pinnacle and go to the File Menu
  4. Click on New Project
  5. Open File Menu again and click on Save File as
  6. Give the file a name such as "Movie 7" and save it
  7. Close out of Pinnacle
  8. Open up Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects and observe that you now have 2 new files there ...a grey film icon file saying Movie 7 AND a coloured Pinnacle icon file saying Movie 7
  9. Delete the grey icon file with the file name Movie 7
  10. Now give your coloured Pinnacle icon file the exact same rename as your precious "lost" renamed grey movie icon file, using the right mouse click on rename proceedure as explained in No.2 above.
  11. Close out of Documents file
  12. Now open up Pinnacle again
  13. Go to Menu and choose Open Project
  14. There you will see the coloured Pinnacle icon file with the new name of your "lost" movie file.
  15. Click onto its coloured Pinnacle icon, and watch your "lost" movie come into view again
