Depending of the Workshop version, perhaps the program is not "Vsta Ready". Check the minimum requirements of the program and verify if it runs with Windows Vista

I can't install Print Shop Duluxe 22 with windows 7. What can I do to install this program?


The most important thing to keep in mind about installing Print Shop 22 on any computer is that Print Shop 22 requires that .NET Framework 1.1 be installed on the hard drive before Print Shop 22 is installed. (Print Shop cannot work with any other version of .NET Framework.) So, the first thing that the Print Shop 22 installation process will look for is whether or not .NET Framework 1.1 is installed. If .NET Framework 1.1 is not installed, it will be installed from the Print Shop 22 install disk before Print Shop 22 is installed.

32-bit version of Windows 7:

When a 'clean' install is done of Print Shop 22, exactly as described in this FAQ

'Clean' Install on Win98/Me/XP/2000/Vista/Win7

Print Shop 22 should install on a 32-bit version of Windows 7, with two incidents.

1. The "Program Compatibility Assistant" in Windows 7 will display a message which says that there are compatibility issues with Print Shop 22 on Windows 7 32-bit. To continue with the installation, select "Run Program".

2. At the end of the installation, this message will be displayed


91a3e005e99c46b79b5cb8d3fc9973fc.jpg

The Amyuni Document Converter mentioned in that message is the Broderbund PDF Converter. This problem can be fixed by downloading and installing the Print Shop 22 Vista patch, which can be found here

I am looking for the Vista compatibility patch.

and which works equally well on Windows 7.

NOTE: Even though the information on that patch site says, "Note: This patch will only work for Vista 32-bit and not the Vista 64-bit operating system," I have confirmed that the patch works quite well on the 64-bit version of both Vista and Windows 7.

It should be noted, however, that when the patch fixes the problem with the Amyuni Document Converter, the Broderbund PDF Creator 3.0 will be installed - instead of the Broderbund PDF Converter, which was installed with WinXP and earlier versions of Windows. The Vista patch installs the Broderbund PDF Creator because the Broderbund PDF Converter is not compatible with either WinVista or Windows 7.

NOTE: One Windows 7 beta user has reported that his DVD drives disappeared after PS 22 was installed on Windows 7 beta 32-bit. This is a known problem with WinVista. So, it would be a very good idea to install the Vista patch BEFORE rebooting the computer.

If your DVD drives disappear after installing Print Shop 22, the only known solution is to uninstall Print Shop 22.

Will not function with Windows 7, what is wrong?


Not all programs that worked in Windows XP will run in Windows Vista or Windows 7.
I suggest you try compatibility mode to see if it helps.

If the program is not compatible, then you may try to install and run the program in compatibility mode.

Use the following steps:

1) Right click on the Program

2) Click on Properties

3) Click on Compatibility tab

4) Select Run this program in compatibility mode and select Windows Vista or whatever operating system the program was running successfully.



Refer to the link here: Make older programs run in this version of Windows

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows


If the compatibility is not successful, then try and runthe Program Compatibility troubleshooter:


1. Open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter by clicking theStart button.

Then click Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then clickTroubleshooting. Under Programs, clickRun programs made for previous versions of Windows.

2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the troubleshooter, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The troubleshooter is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.


If you run Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate version, install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP mode (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/default.aspx) and execute your software in Windows XP.


If you run Windows 7 Home Premium, try VirtualBox (www.virtualbox.org) or VMware Player (www.vmware.com) and install a separate copy of Windows XP (either Home Edition or Professional) for that purpose.You can find virtualization software free of charge that will run on Windows 7 Home Premium.
Hope this helps.

I have a relatively new Toshiba which has windows vista. I've installed Print workshop 2008 and everytime I try to add a new sheet to create a book for a scrap book I receive An unhandled exception has...


Hate to say it, because I use Vista myself, but it seems that the program "Print Worshop 2008" not really that compatible with Vista...even though they claim that it will work fine. Just another compatibility bug within the two programs. Try first updating your system with all patches, and service packs, or download 2009 version of Print Workshop. I would also try contacting Valusoft.(Valusoft.com). Ask them to send you the newest version (they should send it to you for free if you bought the older version and it is not working)

Ulead dvd workshop 2


You can install and run a Ulead software for Windows XP on Windows Vista by running
the Program Compatibility Wizard. We do not guarantee full stability for Windows Vista though.
To run Program Compatibility Wizard:

1. Open the "Program Compatibility Wizard" by
clicking the [Start] button, clicking [Control Panel], clicking [Programs],
and then clicking "Use an older program with this version of Windows".

2. Click [Next] when the "Program Compatibility Wizard" dialog box comes up.
3. Select "I want to use the program in the CD-ROM drive" and click [Next].
If the installer is not detected from the CD-ROM drive, please manually browse for the installer executable.
4. Under "Select a compatibility mode for the program" step, please click on "Microsoft Windows XP (SP2)" and click [Next].
5. For the display settings, please click on "Disable Visual Themes" and "Disable desktop composition" then click [Next].
6. Click on "Run this program as an administrator" and click [Next].
7. Click [Next] to start testing the compatibility settings.
This will launch the installer so if you have your firewall enabled, it will prompt for a permission request.
Please grant permission for the setup to continue. 8. The setup will now run.
You can allow it to finish or switch back to the "Program Compatibility Wizard" dialog box.
9. It will ask you if the program ran correctly. Click "Yes..." if no other pop-ups appear.
* Try another compatibility setting if it reports a problem with the display. For the display settings,
enable the option "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" as well.
10. For this next step click "Yes" to send the info to Microsoft and finish the process.
* Now that you have the software installed, you will also have to run the "Program Compatibility Wizard"
for the application to run correctly. Use the same procedure except for step [3],
select "I want to choose from a list of programs". Follow the same procedure for the other steps until you finish the setup.

Print workshop 2004


I didn't realize there is a print workshop 2204. Do you mean Broderbund's Printshop version 22?

Yes, this should work okay with Windows Vista.

Many older programs will work fine with WinVista, they were just not written to take advantage of the OS features.
