download pdf995 onto windows 7
it will install there are two files you have to install
once installed it will look like a printer to your program and then print to the pdf995 printer and it will convert whatever you print into a pdf file.

Where does the shortcut point to? Can you search on the machine for the name of the program? Most programs are installed to C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files\x86 and then the manufacturer (Broderbund). See if you can find it there through File Explorer.

sounds like a soft ware fault , if you have the disc that came with it, you could try a clean install, this will fix any soft ware fault.

Thanks for the feedback Carol. Lost 400 files? Whew! If you have lost that much you seriously should consider re-formatteing your hard drive to make sure all traces of baddy have gone. You havent mentioned doing this, so I assume you haven't.

Hi there! Let me see if I can try and help you. When you say your computer hangs up, do you mean that the install fails, or just seems to stay there? Does it come back with an error, or does your computer hang completely?
My first suggestion is that you try to upgrade to version 15 from version 11. When it's trying to install the fonts, unless something comes back as not responding, or your computer hangs up, be patient. Fonts are a lot of very small files that take a longer time to copy than just one big file. How long have you waited in the past?
If that doesn't work, I would uninstall all version of PrintMaster - if you come across any troubles, use the program found here to help uninstall - http://majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=4459&file=15&evp=fe1c76da3437592326a3d668d72bf8f5
Restart your computer afterwards and then before launching any other programs try and install version 15 from scratch. Get back to me with your results and the answers to my questions and I'll be here to help! Good Luck!

Apparently no, it does support only Windows 98 / NT 4 / Me / XP. However, here is a thing you can try if a program cannot be run under Windows 7 because of compatibility issues, which is the case with Print Master Platinum 15. You right click on the executable file that will install the application and click Properties. Select Compatibility tab and check Windows XP SP3. If it installs do the same for the EXE file that will run the application. You can find more about this Compatibility issue on Microsoft website: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows

Let's first try this: Search for the file with extension ".car" (dot car) using the windows search wizard, don't forget to select the hidden files in the search options. You need to type in "*.car" (start dot car *this is for your reference only*) in the search box and search in the whole directory of your computer including the other partitions. Hopefully you'll find some or maybe that man 2010.car. If so, open the file directly so that the program "Printmaster" will open up. This should fix your problem is there's no other registry related issue/s. Well, you may not find the file, in that case, close the opened program (if so) and open any "Printmaster" .car file. Restart your computer and check if it goes or persists.

If this isn't helpful, save all the .car files or files created by the "Printmaster" and uninstall the program (I hope it's possible with your PrinterMaster version to be reinstalled, you need to have the key), You'll also need to run registry cleaning using a registry cleaning tool like Ccleaner (freeware). Download and install it, run the "Registry" cleaner and restart your computer, again (re) install the Printmaster and see how it goes. Let me know if you have problem.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

If you have tried using the "Add/Remove" or the uninstaller from the software itself and cannot uninstall the program. Reinstall the program again and unistall it.

If it is not sucessfull, then
Try using the System Tools "System Restore" utility in XP to restore your Operating System to the point before you install the software.

Hope it helps.
