Unfortunately the Windows OS has changed significantly since that software was released. Nova Developement now has the Greeting Card Factory Deluxe version 8 for XP/Vista/7.
If you have the 64-bit Vista, you may not be able to get the old software to work and need the upgrade or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS (see below). To check your OS version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System .
You can try running the program in the compatibility mode - this will work best with software for XP not Win95-NT. Right click on the installer and select Properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and choose Run this program as compatible with (an older version of Windows). Click on the check box and use the drop-down menu to select the older OS. Save the change by clicking apply then close the window. Right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.
If the program installs, do the same compatibility steps for the program's exe file itself. (You don't need to run as administrator though.)
Alternatively, you can run a dual boot or virtual computer with an older Windows OS. (Programs like Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare let you run a virtual computer inside the Vista system with a computer that can handle virtualization.) Unfortunately, you usually need a licensed version of Windows to do this. (Win7 Pro and Ultimate let you do this free with Virtual PC and XP mode.) Then install the software normally in the virtual computer or when booted into the older version of Windows. File transfer can be tricky with the virtual computer - you need to save files to external media (flash drive or optical disc). Printers can't be installed on both the real and virtual computer at the same time.
If the software was made to support Windows 95 and above, it wont hurt to try and see if Win Vista will accept and run the program properly. The worst thing that can happen is that the installation will not complete.
The software might be too old to run properly on Win Vista, or if it does allow it to install the graphics may seem really old and funny looking - but it won't hurt anything to try and find out.
You may be able to get it to work by installing it in compatability mode. Right click on the install file and choose windows 98 on the compatability tab.
You could also use a virtual machine, you could load a copy of windows 98 and then use your program in the VM.
There are free Virtual machine programs, but you would need a valid copy of win 98
Try under compatability mode, your support site says Microsoft Windows 98, NT, 2000, Me, XP, Vista (classic mode)
So it may work with windows 7, if you right click on the exe file and change the properties to compatability mode, and run as administrator
It Took Me About 40 min. to figure it out 1. install master cook 6.0 2. open sierra on c drive c:\sierra\mastercook6\program 3. delete msvcp.dll file mastercook 6.0 will now run there will be no cookbooks 1. goto file\open add it will list all the cookbooks 2. open each one and then everything works as normal
No it looks like they stopped the support at the old one, this means they did'nt make any drivers for the old one to function on vista. Vista uses a very diferent driver model than xp does. The drivers for xp won't work in any way on vista.
windows nt is a operating system some software works only with windows 98or only with windows 2000or only with windows xp/nt windows nt is the same as xp i think the software ym makeover magic works windows nt platform you should have the operating system in which the ym makeover magic works to know which operating syatem works just see some readme files in setup files folders of the ym make over magic there will be file stating readme in that they will give operating system comapatiblity windows 98/2000/server 2003/xp/media center /vista they will specify like this see the compatiblity and then install the operating systm and then install the software
