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.

SOURCE: I have Printmaster 7.0 but it is not compatible

The upgrade path is to Printmaster Platinum 18.1 or Printmaster Platinum 2.0. I'm not sure which is better for you but both are $39.99 from http://www.printmaster.com/ .

The installers for Windows have changed over the years. Your alternatives would be to use a dual boot or virtual computer with XP installed. Win7 Pro and Ultimate allow you to run XP mode free after downloading two programs from Microsoft. All the other options require a licensed (paid) version of XP.

The compatibility mode is available but I'm not sure it will work in this case. You would need to right click on the installer and choose Properties. Then go to the Compatibility tab and chose an older version of Windows (Win98 may be a better choice than XP). Then right click on the installer again and chose Run as Administrator. Then you will need to do the same thing with the actual program.

I hope this helps.

Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work 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:)) julyallan01_52.jpg

How can I run PrintMaster 16 Platnum in Windows 7


Printmaster 16 Platinum is an older program and is compatible with XP and older versions of Windows.

First check which version of Windows 7 that you have. Click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If your version title ends with x64, you will need to use an option that lets you run an older version of Windows. If you do not see x64 in the title, then the compatibility mode might work.

For the 32-bit OS, right click on the installer and choose Properties. In the Compatibility tab, check the box for always run in the compatibility mode and select an older version of Windows. Apply the changes and click OK. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator. You may need to repeat this to run the software as well. This is not guaranteed to work in Windows 7 32-bit.

The alternative is to run an older version of Windows. This could be on a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer (if your hardware supports the feature). Most of these methods require licensed version of the older Windows OS. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to them, you can run a virtual XP OS for free. Download Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Then install the Printmaster program in XP as if this is the only OS. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.)

The only other option is to upgrade to a version of Printmaster that is Win7 compatible. One option is Printmaster 2012 Platinum available here: http://www.broderbund.com/p-273-printmaster-2012-platinum.aspx .

I hope this helps.

Our business has been using Printmaster 15 for a few years now. We recently bought a new computer with windows 7. Printmaster 15 is obviously not compatible with Windows 7. I bought printmaster 2011...


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.

Can't install PrintMaster Platinum 16 on my Windows 7 PC


This version of print master is not compatible with windows 7.
see the compatibility criteria of Printmaster on the link given below!
http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Details.aspx?type=Software&p=PrintMaster%20Platinum&v=Encore&uid=18&l=en&pf=0&pi=9&c=Graphics%20%26%20Printing&sc=Image%20Editing&os=64-bit

You can try if this works in compatibility mode in your pc - Try running in compatibility mode. Right click the program icon, click Troubleshoot Compatibility, wait while the problem is detected. Click Troubleshoot program > select an appropriate version of Windows the program is known to run in, try Windows Vista SP2 > start the program to see if it runs. If it runs, click next to proceed with saving the settings for it.

I have windows 7 and printmaster 7.0 is not working, what do I do?


Hello Patrick,
Try running Printmaster in Windows XP compatibility mode.
1. Right click on the printmaster icon. A pop-up menu would appear. 2. Select 'Properties.' 3. Select the 'Compatibility' Tab. 4. Note the first check box. It says "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" 5. Select 'Windows XP (Service Pack 2)' or 'Windows XP (Service Pack 3)'
If this doesn't work, the problem may be with your installation...

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.

Trying to install Printmaster 15 for Windows 7. Is that possible?


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
