    I have the same problem

  • benfumanchu Jul 29, 2008

    I can't even get the game to begin to load. I have repaired the installation, removed and then re-installed, nothing. I double-click the icon, get a few moments of the hourglass and then no result.

    Installed game. On start up get a pink screen, nothing else. Very disappointed.

  • gregorympope Jul 30, 2008

    Installed Game. Started game, heard music and got pink screen only. Computer was in 1024 x 768 pixel mode. Changed to 800 x 600 mode and it started working properly. Suspect a compatibility problem with my graphics card and lack of platform testing on the game. Try changing your graphics card resolution to 800 x 600 and see if your problem clears up.

Double clicking on the icon and getting an hour glass only was what I encountered this morning. You need to go out and buy a graphic card. I got 128 mb for $50 installed at the store on the spot. I can now load the program. BUT I currently cannot get the fashion cards to register onto the computer. Mattel is sending me a new "swipper".

    Follow up to my nd problem. Cards not registering when swiped was a result of some corupt windows files. (my computer's old). Reinstalling Windows Xp was the nd problem.

    Thanks Barbie, thanks alot!

Where can i get the CD for Barbie idesign please?

Very hard to get CD Rom as discontinued by mattel in 2009
found a few web sites proclaiming to have a download but require the dwonloading of a smart downloader which I cannot guarantee would be virus free and safe and would result in getting the software .
the software is called Barbie(R) idesign(TM) Ultimate Stylist(TM)
you may google it and have better luck at finding a downloadable version than I had or are willing to risk installing a downloader program which I was not willing to try or risk.

After we allowed a registry change program no longer runs

Have you tried restarting the computer since this registry change? Another possible problem is that its still open, but it didn't finish loading / closing after a session. When you press "Control+Alt+Delete" the task manager should open up, go to processes and see if any of the processes sound barbie related. I wish I could tell you the name of the process, but I can't find it online.

If neither of those were the problem, please leave a comment and I will get back to you as soon as I can. *And I'll lead you through the process of restoring the registry for the game which was possibly messed up.

Barbie Girl mp3- application wont start up

Try restarting your PC once the software has been installed.

I bought one of these for my daughter for Christmas. I didn't bother installing the software that came with the player. Windows Media Player automatically recognised the device allowing me to transfer music to it.

Barbie iDesign Ultimate Stylist Game not working

Try updating your graphics drivers from the internet for your video card. Since the minimum requirements for this game is a 32 MB video card, your video card should work just fine. Attempt to update the graphics drivers from ATI's website. Also verify that you have direct x compatable sound card, which is also required for this game.

Barbie idesign ultimate stylist cards will not scan in

Not sure if this will help as my cards would scan but I was having problems with the game shutting down when we tried to "photograph" her outfits, fashions not transfering to other sections of the game and not saving the cards we had scanned. I'm running windows xp on a new computer and had to change my daughters user account to administrator (from limited). The game is now working brilliantly and is everything it promised to be. Still it's very frustration that I had to spend 3 hours today solving this myself instead of reading a simple 1 liner on the Mattel website FAQ's!!!
