You will have to go to the creata card web site and download the version for 7 and install your serial number in place of the one you had for windows.As long as you enter your name and adress in the system it will auto update.

Good solution vallis! I have solved many of my disc reading errors this way. Now, i always try this first and it works 9/10. A good suggestion for future reference for you nannytojack is to make backup discs of all new programs and use the backup in a new labelled csse, and put the original away to keep it pure and safe!!! You can also try uninstalling the program and reinstalling it, as they can get corrupted files very occasionally and prevent proper reading.

Try changing the compatability. Right click on the desktop shortcut for My creata card gold 3 and choose properties from the menu that right-clicking opens. This will open the properties window. There are three tabs near the top labeled "general", "shortcut" and "compatablility". Click on Compatablility. Check the box marked "run this program in compatability mode for:" When you check the box, the drop-down menu below will light up and you can select the system you used previously.

You can either upgrade to the latest Broderbund greeting card software. (See this site for a list of all the Broderbund Design and Print products: http://www.broderbund.com/c-6-design-print.aspx . You may not be able to import old projects into the new software.)

Creata Card Gold 8 was for Windows XP and older OS versions. I suspect the compatibility mode will not work but you can try it. Right click on the installer. Then choose Properties and then the Compatibility tab. Turn on Run program as Compatible with the appropriate OS. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. Then check if the program itself is running in the compatibility mode by right clicking again and choosing Properties. This is more likely to work if you have Windows 7 32-bit.

I do not know if this will work. A method that will work is to use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from your CD in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them to print them. A printer can be installed to either the real or virtual machine at a given time. You will be asked to uninstall the printer if you try to install it in the virtual computer with it installed on the main computer.

I hope this helps.

Are there Vista drivers for American Greetings Creata Card 4?


American Greetings Creata Card 4 is a software for PC with Platform: Windows 98 / 2000 / NT / 95.
You do not need drivers to install any software on a PC.

If you are trying to install the above software to your Vista OS, it is not compatible. If you are looking for a patch for Vista, there isn't any from the developer Broderbund because the version is replaced with newer versions.

Hope it helps.

Is there an upgrade for American Greetings Creata Card Platinum 8


You can try to right click the setup.exe file and select properties. Next select the compatibility tab and choose Run this program in compatibilty mode and click the drop down to find the version of XP that you think it will run in and the program will install and run in its own memory space and work in VIsta. Don't worry about any other settings on that dialog box. No need to buy a new copy. Now if the program has been installed and won't run, you can right click the shortcut and perform the same steps.

Creatacard gold 3 won't work with Vista


I just installed Hallmark Comedy Card Studio by Sierra on my Vista 64-bit machine. It works with all the saved files from Creata Card. If the Calendar and Address Book data file is fmnot32.dat, rename it to planr32.dat and then the Event Calendar will work as well.

Its possible that the disc has gotten too rough to be read right. Something you can try doing is making a copy of the disc if you have a CD burner. Sometimes the software that CD burners use are a little more sensitive than just the regular windows reading software. Make a copy of the disc then try using it like you did the orginal. Just be sure you keep the orginal copy, just in case.
