20 Most Recent Broderbund Print Master Silver 16.0 for PC Questions & Answers

I suspect that when you re-installed 10 it corrupted in some way and did not install properly. If you are using the same computer as before and the same software disc as before, then unless you had an update, which changed printmaster 10, it should be the same as before.
The only updates to Printmaster 10, would have been around a few years after it came out. There are no software updates for any software that still works only on XP as the system is now redundant.

Try re-installing Printmaster 10.

You will have to locate the original CD or repurchase the software. If if's a licensed copy and you still have the license available then borrow the CD from someone that has the same version and just use your license when reinstalling. There is no way to reinstall without the original software CD or download.

The only solution with this older software 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 (or are willing to upgrade to one of these versions), 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 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. You can't have a printer installed on both the main computer and the virtual one at the same time. You will be asked to uninstall the printer if you try.

Your other option is to upgrade to PrintMaster Platinum 18.1, see http://www.broderbund.com/ for details, which is compatible with Windows 7. This will import your Printmaster 10 projects.

I hope this helps.

Reinstall printmaster 10 from the old to the new that will fix your problem on your new laptop.

PrintMaster 10 is designed to work with Microsoft Windows 95/98/NT/2000, so in order to use it with Vista or XP, you should open it using Compatibility mode--> Right click on the program icon--> properties-->Compatibility--> select Windows 95/98/NT/2000

Compatibility Wizard
1. Open the Program Compatibility Wizard by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Use an older program with this version of Windows.
2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the wizard, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The wizard is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.
To change compatibility settings manually for a program, right-click the icon for the program, click Properties, and then click the Compatibility tab.

Check the file listing with Explorer and look for an '.exe' file named 'autorun' or 'install' and double-click on that. You should find your optical drive listed on the 'My Computer' screen and you might just try double-clicking on the icon for it; it may open that way too.
BTW, I recently read reviews on Printmaster Platinum 2.0 and it is miserable; avoid it. They have changed so much, earlier projects cannot be opened any more. This represents tons of lost work for Printmaster users.

    Did print shop 3 work properly in win 7? If so you should never have updated. See all the grief it has caused you? Go back and install the 3.0 version and leave well enough alone

    Or maybe that program is not compatible at all with your OS.I have mo bo's that will not load XP but will work fine with anything prior to that. Computers are unpredictable and down right ornery at times but we need them so have to play by their rules.
