I had to download the latest firmware (rev. VS0M) for Lite-On DVDRW SOHW-832S. This fixed the problem.

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.

How do I format a DVD+RW disc?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Here are the instructions for formatting DVD+RW discs.

  • Locate the CD-ROM drive door on your computer. The location of the drive depends on the computer you have. You will see a small rectangular button on the door.

  • Press the button and the drive door should slightly open. Lightly pull the door open and insert the blank DVD-RW disc into the drive. Close the drive door and wait for the computer to detect the disc, which will trigger an "Auto Play" screen to flash on the desktop's taskbar. The screen will prompt you to choose an action you'd like to perform for the disc.

  • Click "Burn Files to Disc: Using Windows." This link will redirect you to your Windows Explorer disc burning application. You will be prompted to enter a title for the disc.

  • Enter the title of your choice in the form and click "Next." The last screen will ask if you'd like to continue with the formatting; click "Yes" to continue. The "Elapsed Time" screen will appear indicating how long the process will take. When the process is complete, another screen will automatically appear indicating the formatting process is complete.

  • Click "OK" to continue. Your Windows Explorer panel will appear. In the upper-left corner of the panel, you will see a horizontal menu bar with different options for the disc. Now your disc is formatted and you can begin burning files to your disc.



    Have a nice Day,

    I can not load my creatacard gold software into my pc with windows 7. It worked fine with XP and Vista. How can I fix this


    Hi,

    How to install an XP/Vista program on Windows 7


    First of all locate the setup or installer file, this will be either in the contents of a CD/DVD (you have to explore the contents of the CD/DVD) under the name "setup" or a downloaded .exe (executable) file.

    Right click on the setup file and select "Properties" from the sub menu.

    A Properties windows will appear on screen, click on the "Compatibility" tab.
    At the bottom of the tab you will see the header "Privilege Level".

    Check the box that says "Run this program as an administrator"

    Also at the top of the Compatibility tab you will see "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
    Check that box and if you have the option select Windows XP (service pack 3).

    Click Apply and then OK and install your program.

    NOTE: if you have upgraded from Vista Windows XP mode may not be available depending on how you system was configured.


    How to run an installed program on Windows 7


    Some programs will install but they won't run on Windows 7. Again this down to compatibility but unlike Vista, Windows 7 has the compatibility mode working down to a tee.


    Locate the desktop icon or the program in "All Programs" from the Start Menu or Orb as it's affectionately known today.

    Just as in my tip about installing a program it is just the same.

    moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngmoz-screenshot-2.pngRight click on the icon or file and select "Properties" from the sub menu.

    Also at the top of the Compatibility tab you will see "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"

    Click apply and then OK and run the program.

    IS THIS SOFTWARE SUITABLE FOR USE WITH SONY DVD RW


    Hi,
    Yes it certainly should be compatible with the CD/DVD drive.

    Roxio has it's own burning software included with the program, you will just have to explore the software until you work out how to burn a CD using Roxio itself.


    If you want to try another burning program try Nero 9 trial. All you have to do is enter your email address and then download the software. Nero is an excellent bit of software, i personally have never had any problems with it.
    Get Nero 9 here >>>>>>>>>>
