Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

Vista isn't programmed to work with software for greeting cards, etc.

I bought new software for my new computer - looked up compatibility with Vista. Hallmark said it was. Now it seems my printer isn't compatible. I want to get rid of vista and put in xp. I have a cd. I also need more memory. Do you do that? Thanks

Im afraid this is only an online advice site.
You can install xp from the cd, you will then have to download the drivers for your devices. (make a list before you install).
Its really easy just read everything and double check what youre doing.
As for memory check compatibility, google your motherboard reference to see what standard it takes and then buy from someone like crucial. Installing it is easy, however if you had enough to run vista xp should be ok.
I cant help thinking it would be easier just to upgrade your printer, what model is it???? Check the makers website for vista drivers........
Where do you live, maybe we can find someone local to help you

You are may need to use compatibility mode for this program. It was originally intended for use on windows 98/Me/2000 and XP. To set compatibility mode to any of those operating systems, right click on the American Greeting shortcut (the icon you click to start the program) and select "properties". Now look for the "Compatibility" tab and click on the check box for "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and in the drop down box, select "Windows XP (Service pack 2)" Or, "windows XP (Service pack 3). If there is no service pack options for windows xp, that's fine. After you made your selection, press ok. If the program works, you're set. If not, go back and change the compatibility mode operating system to another choice such as "Windows 98" or "Windows 2000". Try each one and see what works for you.

I have amecan Greeting Card plus 3 and it will not work on my Vista 64 bit please help


This is an old piece of software. You can try right clicking the program icon, going to properties, going to compatibility and attempt to run it in Windows XP or Windows 98 compatibility modes. This may not work as the program is listed as incompatible with Windows Vista 64.
Please give me feedback for this answer, thanks.

My Art Explosion Greeting Card Deluxe Factory 2 software will not work on my Toshiba Satellite A200 laptop. I am using Windows Vista. Please can you advise?


Unfortunately the Windows OS has changed significantly since that software was released. Nova Developement now has the Greeting Card Factory Deluxe version 8 for XP/Vista/7.

If you have the 64-bit Vista, you may not be able to get the old software to work and need the upgrade or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS (see below). To check your OS version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System .

You can try running the program in the compatibility mode - this will work best with software for XP not Win95-NT. Right click on the installer and select Properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and choose Run this program as compatible with (an older version of Windows). Click on the check box and use the drop-down menu to select the older OS. Save the change by clicking apply then close the window. Right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

If the program installs, do the same compatibility steps for the program's exe file itself. (You don't need to run as administrator though.)

Alternatively, you can run a dual boot or virtual computer with an older Windows OS. (Programs like Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare let you run a virtual computer inside the Vista system with a computer that can handle virtualization.) Unfortunately, you usually need a licensed version of Windows to do this. (Win7 Pro and Ultimate let you do this free with Virtual PC and XP mode.) Then install the software normally in the virtual computer or when booted into the older version of Windows. File transfer can be tricky with the virtual computer - you need to save files to external media (flash drive or optical disc). Printers can't be installed on both the real and virtual computer at the same time.

I hope this helps.

If a program cannot be run under Windows 7 64 bit because of compatibility issues you have to right click on the executable file that will start the application and click Properties. Select Compatibility tab and check the Windows version you know the program worked with before. You can find more about this Compatibility issue on Microsoft website.

I have just bought a new acer computer with windows 7 but why will my greeting card deluxe version 6 will not install


Try under compatability mode, your support site says Microsoft Windows 98, NT, 2000, Me, XP, Vista (classic mode)
So it may work with windows 7, if you right click on the exe file and change the properties to compatability mode, and run as administrator

Dear,
Your HP computer may be new, but your programs must be compatible with your operating system. If your Creatacard is older, the compatibility most likely stops with Windows Vista. Windows 7 is like a "brand new day". Read the label on your CD. It will tell you which systems it will work on. I had Windows 98 and Windows Millenium. When I upgraded to Windows XP my "create" CD's no longer worked.
Try downloading Avery cards. Be blessed.

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.

Vista has been a problem since it was introduced. Essentially Microsoft released it without ensureing driver were available for existing software and hardware. Some manufacturers have been making efforts to get Vista compatible Drivers available. Check the software websites for updated drivers.
