You can either upgrade to the latest Broderbund greeting card software. (See this site for a list of all the Broderbund Design and Print products: http://www.broderbund.com/c-6-design-print.aspx . You may not be able to import old projects into the new software.)

Creata Card Gold 8 was for Windows XP and older OS versions. I suspect the compatibility mode will not work but you can try it. Right click on the installer. Then choose Properties and then the Compatibility tab. Turn on Run program as Compatible with the appropriate OS. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. Then check if the program itself is running in the compatibility mode by right clicking again and choosing Properties. This is more likely to work if you have Windows 7 32-bit.

I do not know if this will work. A method that will work is to use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from your CD in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them to print them. A printer can be installed to either the real or virtual machine at a given time. You will be asked to uninstall the printer if you try to install it in the virtual computer with it installed on the main computer.

I hope this helps.

Space empires II wont run on windows 7


If compatibility mode doesn't work, the game is probably too old to be played on windows 7. You could use an emulation software to run an older windows version and play the game. Otherwise, Space Empires 2 being such an old game won't run on Windows 7. Sorry!

My creata card gold 3 does not work in my new window 7 How can I correct this, I am afraid to download a new driver for fear of crashing. TY Ria


Try changing the compatability. Right click on the desktop shortcut for My creata card gold 3 and choose properties from the menu that right-clicking opens. This will open the properties window. There are three tabs near the top labeled "general", "shortcut" and "compatablility". Click on Compatablility. Check the box marked "run this program in compatability mode for:" When you check the box, the drop-down menu below will light up and you can select the system you used previously.

I have the creatacard gold 3.0 cds and a new pc running windows 7. CC Gold 3.0 is not compatible with windows 7 64 bit . Can you help?


yes can be, just follow these steps:

Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:))

The CreateACard Gold 3 (CAC Gold 3) will never work with Windows 7 64bit unassumingly because the software producing company has not upgraded their software for even Vista 64bit.
I recommend you to switch to " Hallmark Card Studio Special Edition" it has all the features of CAC Gold 3. You will enjoy it as there should be no problem installing it with Windows 7 64bit.

Good Luck!
