Go to your control panel from start menu if using any OS other than Windows8. (W8 control panel=settings). At control panel menu, locate "change or uninstall program". Click on this selection and all of your installed programs will appear. Scroll own until "American Greetings Createacard" (or close variation) appears and highlight and click this selection. Now an uninstall option appears either on the same highlighted line or at top. Click uninstall and follow prompts if any appear; clicking "ok" or "yes" if they do. Once this program has uninstalled, you can download it again from the original source and it should operate now as intended.

SOURCE: Is it possible to install / import old PrintMaster 7.0 Art Discs?

When you put the Program install disk in follow the prompt but instead of selecting the "Typical" instalation select "Custom". This way the install will instruct you to select the two or one or none Art cd.s. I assume your copy of Printmast 17 Platinum has all 4 cd's?.If not then you will only have installed about clip 950 art etc. instead of 19,000 plus when you install the Art disk 1&2.
The only drawback is that the two art disc's add another 1gb to the hard drive usage.
I hope this helps.

Vista has been a problem since it was introduced. Essentially Microsoft released it without ensureing driver were available for existing software and hardware. Some manufacturers have been making efforts to get Vista compatible Drivers available. Check the software websites for updated drivers.

SOURCE: when I make labels I select"start from scratch"

Install The Print Shop's special fonts when running the automated installation process to ensure all toolbars and documents appear correctly in the software. If you bypassed this option and wish to install it later, click your Windows Start menu and select "Control Panel." Open the fonts control panel. Click "File" in the top menu bar and select "Install New Font." A dialog box will open. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Broderbund\Core Fonts and press "OK."

Adjust your computer's hardware acceleration feature if the Print Shop's layouts or fonts appear distorted or overlap each other. Quit the program. Right-click your Windows desktop and choose "Display Properties" from the pop-up menu. Click "Settings" and press "Advanced." Push "Troubleshoot." Slide the adjustment bar for hardware acceleration one notch to the left. Close the window and resume use of The Print Shop 20. If the program's layout still appears jumbled, repeat this step and slide the bar one more notch to the left, repeating until the layouts no longer appear jumbled.

My mom will only use CreataCard Gold 3 but uses Windows 7. How can she still keep using it?

Does the software install properly in Windows 7? If you are having installation problem then you can try running the installer (most of the time it is "setup.exe") in "compatibility mode".
To run a program in comparability mode right click on the executable (i.e "setup.exe") and select "properties" then click on the "Compatibility" tab. In the "Compatibility" tab select the check mark next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" option then from the pull down menu select "Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or 3)".

After installing the program if you run into issues while using the program then use the same steps to run the program in Windows XP compatibility mode.

Creatacard Platinmum 6 won't work with Windows Vista.

CreataCard Platinum 6 is designed to be used with Windows 95/98/2000/Me or NT 4 and XP, therefore in order to run it in Vista I'd suggest to run your program using Compatinity Mode --> Go to your Desktop --> Right click on the program icon--> Properties-->Compatibility--> select one of the versions above
