Hi

Apologies but at this point of time there is no drivers available for windows 7.The recommended solution is to upgrade for version 18. I'd guess you already tried running the installer by choosing Run this program in compatibility mode (by right clicking and choosing properties) and then right clicking again and Run as administrator. Your next option is to run a virtual PC within your Win7 computer (or a dual boot system) with a compatible OS running on the "other" machine. With Win7 Pro and Ultimate, there is an option to download two programs and install them for a free WinXP virtual computer (XP mode). For the other primary OS's you'll need to have a valid license of the compatible OS to install in program that runs the virtualization or the second boot disc. Then install the Print master in the "machine" with the correct OS. You may find you need to save the files to external media to transfer them. (The virtual computer won't let you have one printer installed on both the virtual system and the real computer.)

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

    You can run printmaster in a compatibility mode of an old OS.
    It's somewhere in options. Can't really remember. But thats how i made it work on windows 7 back when i used it.

How can I run PrintMaster 16 Platnum in Windows 7


Printmaster 16 Platinum is an older program and is compatible with XP and older versions of Windows.

First check which version of Windows 7 that you have. Click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If your version title ends with x64, you will need to use an option that lets you run an older version of Windows. If you do not see x64 in the title, then the compatibility mode might work.

For the 32-bit OS, right click on the installer and choose Properties. In the Compatibility tab, check the box for always run in the compatibility mode and select an older version of Windows. Apply the changes and click OK. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator. You may need to repeat this to run the software as well. This is not guaranteed to work in Windows 7 32-bit.

The alternative is to run an older version of Windows. This could be on a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer (if your hardware supports the feature). Most of these methods require licensed version of the older Windows OS. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to them, you can run a virtual XP OS for free. Download Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Then install the Printmaster program in XP as if this is the only OS. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.)

The only other option is to upgrade to a version of Printmaster that is Win7 compatible. One option is Printmaster 2012 Platinum available here: http://www.broderbund.com/p-273-printmaster-2012-platinum.aspx .

I hope this helps.

How do you make Printmaster Platinum 16 work with windows vista


Printmaster Platinum 16 is not compatible with Vista or windows 7. You can try to use Vista compatibility mode to run older programs in Vista. There is not guarantee that it will work!!! Please take note:- **The installation of an older program to run in a newer OS may also crash your PC too.
Link to How to "Use windows vista compatibility mode" - Use at your own risk!

Good luck

How do I make my Print Master Platinum 16 compatible with Windows 7?


Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(make your program/application run with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:))
