Yes, Gail, Some programs do not meet standards, as Operating Systems evolved, some programs designed for earlier OS jsut will not work. You need to get an updated version of the program that you like.

By the way, you should be looking forward to Windows 7. It just works, when set up correctly, finding stuff is faster, migration to different computers ususally does not need a techie, and newer hardware can only be run by the newer OS. It is a good thing.

The key is to upgrade while your old machine still works, then you can use a migration wizard that puts everything on the new machine, in the correct place. The file system works differently in Vista and 7, but it is close enough that you can find stuff.

I have windows 7 I uses creata cars gold in my old computer but now it won't run in windows what do I need to do


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.

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 american greetings spiritual expressions but it will not install in Windows 7. Is there a solution? My wife loved her old program; spiritual expressions 2. It would not run either on the HP with...


This is a Windows 98 program. Try installing it using the compatibility feature of WIN7. Right click on the startup program on the CD, select install as administrator, right click again and select properties, install as W98 compatible.
This might work but some of these older programs just won't work with Vista or Win7. I didn't find any updated spiritual expressions software. It looks like it is no longer made.
Also you didn't say if you're running 32bit or 64bit Win7. Be aware that 64bit does not support 16bit programs. Given the age of spiritual expressions, it is probably 16bit code. No way will it run on a 64bit OS. My above suggestion will only work with 32bit Win7.

Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work 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:)) julyallan01_52.jpg

If this is a new install from a new purchase, always give the manufacturer a call because they should know what it is compatable with and walk you thru most common problems.
