This should answer your question

I understand that you are inquiring if Printmaster 18 is compatible with Windows 7. Our developers have tested every aspect of Printmaster 18 to see if it will function properly on Windows 7. It has passed all tests except one, which is the Save As PDF feature. Our developers just became aware of this and are working on a resolution to make it work on the Windows 7 operating system. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, but we can assure you that we will provide a fix for this as soon as possible.

    I do not save as PDF and I am still encountering difficulties with the program. It often freezes on me and now I can not access my files and does not allow to save files on my computer either. I can however save them on my flash dirve. It also freezes and it does not allow me to close the program not even with the task manager program.

Having compatability problems installing


Hi, PrintMaster is known for having versions that are not compatible with certain Windows Operating Systems, 18 is known to not work with Vista, yet works with 7 and XP quite well. The best solution would be either to upgrade to Windows 7 or get another version. Good luck!

Hello,

the problem is that windows 7 is not compatible with Print-Master premier 7.0

The program cannot run on windows 7 because it wasn't programmed for it. This is why the error message comes up.

There is nothing you or anyone can do about this.

Sorry about this.

Regards.

You can try version 15 in compatibility mode:

Troubleshoot Compatibility
This can help with some (but not all) programs/drivers:
1) Uninstall the program if it's already installed. Then when you install/reinstall it instead of double clicking on the install file right click it and select "Troubleshoot Compatibility"
2) Then click "Try Recommended Settings" and in the next window click "Start the Program" to install it.
3) After it installs see if it works correctly. Please note - some programs may not be able to run in Windows 7.

Have old printmaster platinum 8.0 tried to download on new comp windows 7 it says something about 16 bits


Printmaster platinum 8.0 is rather an old 16bits software and it is not compatible to your new version Win 7 OS.

You can check software compatibility @ Windows 7 Compatibility Center

Your option is to upgrade to version 18 which is Win 7 compatible.

Hope it helps.

Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(make your program/application run with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:))

I have chnged my computer system form XP to Window, now I cannot install PrintMaster Platinum Version 17? Is there any way that I can istall this program disc?


Thank you for your question.

In this instance it is easier to direct you to a video on the "Microsoft" website regarding installing older programmes. This is much clearer than trying to explain in writing.
