You must install the driver provided with the printer before plugging the printer into your computer. If you did this and it still is not recognizing it, sometimes the box will say a device is compatible with a particular operating system but the disc provided is out of date, in which case you should go to the manufactures website and download the latest drivers there.

Can't install printers.


Two reasons why this would come up. One the drivers are Win 7 compatible. The other is your user account does not have enough access rights.

Can i use Dir 300 on a windows 7? my desktop's OS is vista while my laptop's is windows 7.. would like to know if it supports windows 7..


Yes, this product is compatible with Windows 7.
To note, if you are upgrading to Windows 7 from either Windows Vista or Windows XP check before installing that your Wired/Wireless equipment on your computer will have compatible drivers for Windows 7.

Does the Design Studio for Plastic Canvas work with Windows 7? I bought the item on Amazon, and the description stated Windows 95/98 and later, but the box only states Windows 95/98. The seller could not...


First what version of Windows 7 are you running? Click on Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System and read the title of your OS. If it ends with x64, you have the 64-bit OS. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version. Next which version of Design Studio do you have? If you have version 2.0, that is compatible with XP and Vista (not x64).

If you use a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you may be able to get it to work with the compatibility mode. Right click on the installer on the CD and choose Properties. In the Compatibility tab, set the "Run this program in the Compatibility Mode" and choose an older version of Windows (try XP first). Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

However, it will not work with the 64-bit version due to unsigned drivers and other issues.

There are workarounds if the program doesn't work in the compatibility mode. You need an older version of Windows running. This could be on a physical second computer, a dual boot system or a virtual computer. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of them, you can use a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and the XP mode from Microsoft in order. Then install your Design Studio in the XP "machine" as if it was your only computer. The only restriction is that you can not share your printer or files under XP mode and Win 7 at the same time. You will need to uninstall the printer and reinstall it under the other OS or transfer the files to external media to share them. Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare. For these virtual computer, the dual boot, or the physical second computer option, you will need a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

The documentation and an update are available here: http://www.plasticcanvassoftware.com/ . The update is in the Customer Service section.

I hope this helps.

I change to windows 7 and battery start showing need to be replace


Hi, this is a known issue in many Laptops which have upgraded to Windows 7 Operating System. I suggest that you check for the Drivers compatible with Windows 7 Operating System by visiting Laptop Manufacturer's Website. By installing all the updated Drivers of Windows 7 the Laptop functions as expected. If the laptop manufacturer doesn't provide Windows 7 Compatible Drivers then you have to downgrade to Windows XP. Please install WIndows XP to get rid of the replace battery message. The issue is not related to Battery.

I have installed Adobe Acrobat 7 on my laptop that runs on Win 7 platform. However, the installation of Acrobat flashed a warning message that Adobe Acrobat 7 was unable to create a new item: Adobe PDF...


Good Afternoon -
Direct from Adobe, they state that versions 9 and above are compatible with Windows 7, and any versions 8 or prior are not supported and updates to make compatible will not be released. There are two solutions, one that may work and one that will definitely work. The first is to try to install the program under Windows XP compatibilty, natively on Windows 7. To do this, find the executable for installation, right click and select properties. On the comptability tab, click the check box that says: Run this program in compatibility mode for: and select Windows XP (Service Pack #) from the drop down, and proceed to install, running the installer as Administrator. The other guaranteed way is if you have Windows 7 , any version other than starter, you can enable Windows XP Mode which creates a virtual PC of XP on your machine and integrates the program references into Windows 7. Details on this can be found:

This used to work perfectly on windows XP. I now have windows 7 & after downloading the Photo Explosion 2.0, it won't open & the programme just freezes. Help.


Downloading means you retrive any files and save to your PC/Laptop from any web source!
Installing means you install any software/programs to run on your PC/Laptop.

As for your software "Photo Explosion 2.0" could not run on Win 7 due to software "Compatibility Issues".

You can try, using "Win 7 compatibility mode" installing older software read this LINK

NOTE**
"There is no guarantees older software will work using Win 7 compatibility mode!"

Hope it helps.

DVD drive Read problem in my Dell Dimension 3000


Make sure you have any and all Windows 7 updates from Microsoft, along with any updates for your DVD drive for use with Windows 7. Some components work fine using Vista SP2 drivers, but some will need an update to work with Windows 7.

This Microsoft site might help verify if your DVD drive is compatible with Windows 7:
