Question about Nova Development Art Explosion Publisher Pro 2.0: Windows

1 Answer

I am running Windows XP, and have been using Nova's Art Explosion Publisher Pro 2.0. However, I recently had to reinstall operating system and all software and now I cannot get my system to read the first installation disk. I know it is not the disk, as installation is no problem on another system. The cd/dvd driver seems to have no difficulties with other disks. I'm lost and confused, please help

I cant install T-Shirt factory deluxe on mu computer windows 7

The following are your options for running this software:

1) Run your software in (XP) Compatibility mode - set in Program Properties-> Compatibility

2) Run in XP Mode if you have the appropriate version of Windows 7 (Professional and Ultimate) and Hardware (CPU must have Hardware Acceleration).

3) Install a Virtual Machine (such as the free Oracle VirtualBox) under Window 7 and then install an alternative Operating system (e.g. Windows XP) in this Virtual Machine and then the required software.

Hope it helps & Good luck!

Cannot burn to a dvd from memories on tv

Photo impact pro as a software has compatibility requirements. For example, impact pro was invented during the times of windows Xp operating systems with Microsoft computers. Imply that, impact pro would hardly function with apple Mac computers. Since the Xp operating systems, computers have gone through design fronts of Windows Vista 1 & 2, and recently displaying Windows 7 on those acquired on the market over years ago. The most recent multimedia photo editor software's acquirable on the retail market have compartibilies with more recent computers. Alternately, performing a computer alteration may achieve installation capabilities. First, finding a computer still functioning on windows XP, millennium, 2000 or 1998 would make installation possible. However, sustain wearsomeness since windows 98 earlier years computers were least designed for multimedia capabilities as known with Photo Impact Pro 8.5. Second, a possibility of acquiring Windows Xp disk software on the retail market to replace the one on the computer would make impact pro installable. However like known of operating system software's, it is only possible to install the same operating system on an existing one on a computer as restoration purposes. If different software should be acquired like XP requesting installation on windows Vista or Windows 7, the entire hard disk drive has to be erased of media traces of the prior. Alerternately, a new operating system may be installed if only a new hard drive, memory cards were acquired to replace the prior on the computer to make possible installation of Photo Impact pro 8.5

My Art Explosion Greeting Card Deluxe Factory 2 software will not work on my Toshiba Satellite A200 laptop. I am using Windows Vista. Please can you advise?

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.

I hope this helps.

Create and share toolbar is grayed out

try this

The toolbars can be turned off. They can also be dragged out of the viewable area. If they are turned off, they can be turned on by going to the View menu, to the Toolbars sub-menu and selecting the toolbar that is missing. If it already has a check next to it and it is missing from the program, then it has been dragged out of the viewable area. To correct that:
Warning: Make sure that you are only deleting folder/keys that you are directed to delete in the Registry. Deleting any other folder/keys may cause problems with your system or other programs. Novadevelopment assumes no liability for changes you make in the Registry.
  1. Close the Publisher Pro program.
  2. Go to the Start button and select the Run option.
  3. On the Run window, type “regedit” without the quotes in the Open field.
  4. Click the ON button. This will open your Registry Editor program.
  5. Scroll to the top of the left-hand side of the window to where you can see the My Computer option.
  6. Click the plus sign (+) next to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER folder and this will expand a list below it. If it has a minus sign (-) next to it, skip to the next step.
  7. Click the plus sign (+) next to the Software folder and this will expand a list below it. If it has a minus sign (-) next to it, skip to the next step.
  8. On the list that appears below Software, locate the folder labeled Nova Development. Click the plus sign (+) next to the Nova Development folder. If it has a minus sign (-) next to it, skip to the next step.
  9. On the list that appears below the Nova Development folder, locate the folder labeled Art Explosion Publisher Pro. Click the label for the folder Art Explosion Publisher Pro. It should now be highlighted.
  10. On the Art Explosion Publisher Pro folder name is highlighted, go to the Edit menu and select the Delete option. On the warning box that confirms the delete, select the Yes button.
