Your best option is to start with the software supplier.
I have used some of the older versions of this software and I was not all that impressed as i too had some issues but more to do with printing and the C&P functions.
You dont say which version of windows 7 home basic,home, pro etc. BUT windows 7 does have a compatibility mode that does allow you to run a program as if it was running under XP, Vista etc. you may want to explore that option
Go to the windows HELP option and type in "program compatability" From there you should be able to get along and see if the program needs anything else or will run under a particular mode.
Note that you may have to try more than one mode until you find one that works.
The software Broderbund
3D Home Architect Deluxe 5.0 might works with the earlier version of Windows
and does not work with the latest version. Check out the system requirement for
the software and its says its for windows 98, 2000 & Xp hence the updated
drivers for the suite are not released hence it would not be able to install it
on New windows version.
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.
The only way you can get this software to work on your pc is by 2 ways:
1) Easy way: Calll PUNCH the manufacturer of this software and ask them if there is a patch or new software to purchase that is compatable to winodws 7
2) Hard way: You may need to make a dual boot hard drive with 2 operating systems on one hard drive. You may need to create a partition, then install the old Windows Vista on the new partition and learn to boot one or the other os when you need to use the punch software.
Please write back which one you want to do so I can help you with either one.
If you are beyond 98, there is a good chance that windows 2000, ME, XP, Vista will not run it because there is a .dll or other file missing. If you have a newer computer and you want to run older software, you have to run it in "compatability" mode. This process is doable but you will have to do the footwork in the "HELP" section of your current computer. The process is too lengthly to set forth here.
Thank you for your question and good luck with your project.
hi there. mastercook 6 runs on older windows versions like win95, win98 and win Millenium Edition only, newer are not supported.sorry
MasterCook deluxe 9.0 supports win2000, XP and VISTA, but this would mean spending another 19.99 on amazon.
you could try to install the 6.0 version on an older machine that still has win98 on it or think about setting up a multi-boot system (u need some computer expertise)so you can install multiple operation systems on your laptop, but this takes a lot of effort and all the drivers for your computer for win98, so spend of whatever you have more of, time or money...
if your problem is the installation in Windows Vista--> Try to use this sw in Compatibility mode--> Desktop--> right click on the program icon--> Properties--> compatibility--> select Windows XP or other older version
