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.

Printmaster Platinum 16 is not compatible with Vista or windows 7. You can try to use Vista compatibility mode to run older programs in Vista. There is not guarantee that it will work!!! Please take note:- **The installation of an older program to run in a newer OS may also crash your PC too.

Computer store when repairing my computer uninstalled my Printmaster 16. I can only find my Printmaster 16 Program CD. Can I download the Install CD? or how can I find the Install on my computer?


Are you sure it's uninstalled and just not unlisted in "All Programs"?

Go to Computer > C: drive > Program Files >...look for Broderbund or PrintMaster in the list of folders. If you see one, open the folder and look for Printmaster.exe. That will be the program. Right-click on the file, choose Send To and choose Desktop. That will create a shortcut for you.
