Hi Vivienne.
I have not used PM for many years (DOS 6 & Win 3.1 days), so i'll just make an educated guess what the cause could be:

Your newer version, Printmaster 12, may use a different file-extension, in other words, image file format, to the original PM8.

Explorer may show the extension if set up for this otherwise use the DOS method via a Notepad-written batch-file, PMext_CD.cmd.

Flash drive, aka Pendrive should be in your USB.
This saves the hassle of remembering your default documents path.
Of course, if you have a second HDD for storage, use it for the output result file.

Let's assume flash is drive F: and CD is drive D:
Open Notepad, presuming your OS is WIN xx.

@echo off
echo SEARCHING.....
Echo CD_DRIVE D FILES>>f:\pmfiles_all.txt
color 4E

save "all files" as PMext_CD.cmd

You can do the same for your PM12 HDD folder.
Batch-file name = PMext_HDD.cmd

Note: the PM pictures may be stored in a zipped or encrypted database, which will render the batch-file useless.

Failing that, try found out who makes PM from the CD sleeve, email them directly.

Hope this helps you.

I'm assuming you have just updated you operating system. If this is the case, that product is probably to old to run on your new operating system. you should consider buying the newer version of that program from this link:

"Add printer" select your new one and set as default.
You can delete the old one from the printers folder.

i would uninstall it then reboot your computer and then reinstall it. The software is fully working in vista and windows 7. So i am guessing there was a hiccup when copying files during install. I would also check drive c: or whatever drive you are installing it to , for errors

Try to use USB CD ROM, or copy content of install disk on USB FLASH DRIVE.

To use the discs you have to register. Your software has passed the free access period and to access those cds you need to register.

you are gonna love this site. It is called www.emule.com you can down load anything, I mean anything for free, and your print master cd you should be able to get right away, see the way the site works is it grabs bits and pieces from owners arouond the world, so if you are looking for some high price software, you leave it running in the back grouund for as long as it takes, a day? 3 days? a couple hours, now this little old cd you need, you should be able to get it right away, also here is another idea, if the cd is cracked, but not cracked in half all the way, super glue it, but use very little as possible then clean cd to make sure there is no glue exposed on the cd surface, and it will work, let me know how this goes.

If it will not install
  1. Find the Setup program.
  2. Right-click on the Setup program> Properties> Compatibility tab> select "Run this program in compatibility mode" check box.
  3. Select the operating system that the program ran on previously, and then click OK.
