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.

Micrografx creatacard 3 gold - repeat only micrografx, not american greetings


Micrografx Creatacard Gold 3 was created back in the Windows 98 days and most likely the installer is a 16-bit installer. Windows XP worked OK with 16-bit installers, but Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, 8.1 will not work. There is a work-around I found ( I actually found this fix for installing Photoshop 7 under Windows 7) and it works! I was able to install Photoshop 7.0.1 under Windows 7 Pro x64 edition and it works great!

Perform a search for Install-Photoshop-6-or-7-on-Windows-7 or go to this website http://www.wikihow.com/Install-Photoshop-6-or-7-on-Windows-7. Under this website, Look at Method 3 of 3 .

Stuff you will need:

1. A working Windows XP -SP3 system where you can install the Free Scalable Smart Package. You may be asking why? You will need to install the Micrografx Creatacard Gold 3 on this system with the "Discovery Program" running so it can create a new 32-bit installer
2. A CD-RW or a Memory Stick where you can copy the new .MSI file created and run it from Windows 7 x86 or x64 bit system.
3. Download the Free Scalable SmartPackager program. This used to be called WinInstall LE but they have since changed the name. You can find the program here http://www.scalable.com/smart-packager-ce-msi-package/. This is Free, but you still need to register to get the software. The latest version as of last week is v2.0.2.
4. Printed out instructions from the website so you can follow along. Once you perform this, you may end up trying this for other "older" software as well.

Basic Overview:

1. Under your Windows XP - SP3 system, install the Packaging software called Scalable SmartPackager v2.0.2

2. Once you have installed the SmartPackage program, it is a good idea to Reboot your system so all files get updated properly.

3. Start the icon called Smart Packager.

4. Under Smart Package, make sure you are under the Welcome screen and click on the Discover a new Package under Common Tasks.

5. When the Blue Discovery screen pops up, click on the Next button

6. Under the New Package Information screen, type out Creatacard Gold3 or something that you like

7. Under the Output Folder, Click the Browse button and select a folder or location where you want the new Creatacard Gold3.msi to be saved. Make sure you click on the Show advanced Options box below and Then Click Next

8. On this screen, you will now need to Click on the Start Discovery. This is what the SmartInstaller program will use to see where all the files are being installed to, etc when you run the Creatacard Gold 3 installer.

9. Insert the Micrografx Creatacard Gold 3 CD in the drive and install the program like you normally would. Please remember to install any of the Extra Free fonts as well during this time since this will be the only time you will have to create a new 32-bit installer (unless you run this process again)

10. After the Creatacard Gold 3 program has installed, verify it is working by Running the program and testing out various things within the program. (This is while the Discovery is still running in the background)

11. Once you have verified the Creatacard Gold 3 program is running properly (under the Windows XP system) then go back to the Discovery window and click on the Red Stop Discovery button and then click on the Next Button.

12. Make sure the Add new package to Smart Packager is checked and then click on the Finish button. This will now save the new "updated installer" MSI file over to the folder location you specified under option 7 above.

13. Copy this new *.MSI file you just created and either burn it to a CD-RW or copy to a Flash drive and take this file over to your Windows 7 system.

Please note, these instructions are an overview and may not contain the entire correct order. The last time I performed this was back in January 2014 when I first discovered the article about using Scalable Smart Packager to re-create an installer file into a true 32-bit installer.

For me so far, the installer has worked with Photoshop 7 and several Photshop plugins like KPT5, KPT7, etc.

I make no guarantees that this will work in your situation but it could not Hurt.

Plus, should you have problems removing this program I would recommend you try this Free program called Revo Uninstaller v1.95. This is Free for Home/Personal use only.

Hopefully you can use the above instructions I provided and get this great program to work under Windows 7.

Please let us know if this process worked for you or not.

Copying the files will not necessarily work, certain registry settings etc will not be established. you may try to install the program (CreataCard Gold 3) using compatibility mode and check if it can be installed. Access the link below and follow the steps to manually change the compatibility settings and install the program in compatibility mode and check if it helps. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows
If the above steps do not work I would suggest you to contact the program manufacturer to verify if they have any updates of fixes to install this application on Windows 7.

I have the very old version of American Greetings @CreataCard Gold v2' which I love. I bought the extra cards online which run from the CD by using an unlocking code. Unfortunately, I have had to...


On your old PC that has the registered Variety Packs, under the C:\Windows folder you should be able to find the vp.cc1 file. Copy this over to your new PC's C:\Windows folder and copy there. It is a good idea to backup this vp.cc1 file since this little file tells the CreataCard program what variety packs you paid for!

You should be now be able to access the Variety Pack with the Variety Pack maintenance kit that is included with the program. That way you can install the addons directly to the hard-drive instead of running it off of CD.

My CreataCard Gold 7 program will not open, I get the message "AGCCard cannot determine configuration." I attempt to uninstall and reinstall the Broderbund American Greetings CreataCard Gold 7...


After uninstalling the program, go to start, Search, for files and folders and put *creatacard gold* in the search box using the asterisks on both sides. Bu sure to delete any files that are found involving creatacard gold7. Then restart your computer. It sounds like you are having a configuration problem. Is the operating system you are using listed on the configuration of the Creatacard Gold program as a operating system that this software will work on?

You could try and reinstall and if using windows, try using the the program compatability wizard found in the accessories folder in the programs folder. This might help make the program work properly. Alternatively, you may have to get a another version of creatacard gold if it does not work with your operating system. Broderbund may have a download on their site to help make your software work on you operating system. Not having any additional details about your issue, I cannot be certain.

Let me know if I can assist you furhter. Please include any details possible about the issue so I may be of assistance to you.

Is there a Creatacard CD compatible for Windows 7?


Creatacard cannot be run under Windows 7 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 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows

I am running Windows XP had a virus peoblem had to have pc wiped now I'm unable to re install creatacard Gold. Any answers please


Hi there

Which version of the product do you use an do you use windows vista ?

For compatibility for windows vista you can check the program here :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/

It does not work with version 7 of the creatacard Gold., you can see it here :http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/Search.aspx?type=Software&s=creatacard%20Gold&page=1

You can try to right click on the icon of the installed program and choise properties and then choise the compatibitility tab and then choose compatibility with with windows xp instead.

You can also choose to upgrade to a newer version on the product homepage here :
http://www.encoreusa.com/default.aspx

OR

http://www.broderbund.com/store/broder/DisplayHomePage

I am not sure of which of the sites are the default homepage

hope that helps
Have a nice weekend :O)
