Question about Broderbund PrintMaster Platinum

1 Answer

I am using an old (but good) Printmaster Platinum 11 and would like to update. A few years ago I got a detective Gold 18 which I cannot use. I have Windows XP Home and am being told that I must update my Printmaster 11 or it will not work on the next upgrade to Windows 7. BUT the newest versions of Printmaster says it will not open older Printmasters! I have years of work in my Printmaster 11 - I love the product - in my opinion it is the very best on the market regardless of price....and I've been an artist/illustrator/designer for the better part of 50 years! Help! What can I upgrade to that is compatible and will take the old files! Can I keep transfering until I get to 2011? I cannot find this info on any Broderbund site.

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:))

Installing PrintMaster 18 on any computer requires .NET Framework 1.1 to be installed on the hard drive.

If possible download .NET framework 1.1 If .NET Framework 1.1 is not already installed on the computer, the "Program Compatibility Assistant" in Windows 7 will display this message.To continue with the installation, select "Run Program".

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.

Printmaster 17 won't open projects created in printmaster 11.


printmaster 1 was for windows 98, ver 17 is for XP. it depends where your saved projects are. if they are on CD media then that is READ ONLY and they must first be transferred to a C:\ drive and their ATTRIBUTES for each and every file/folder of the project need to have the Read Only attribute removed. you can do that via CMD.exe eg if your project was inside a folder called c:\myprojects\????? then you would type in ATTRIB/S c:\myprojects\*.* -R then your projects might be valid as they could be UPDATED/Altered by the new version but thats just a guess.

How to configure Printmaster 12


melodie roba,
Most definitely this could be your problem! I would reccomend that you completely uninstall Printmaster 12, run another virus check, then reinstall the program. Once the program is installed, update it through the vendor and it should work fine. You should be able to find the vendor (PrintMaster) updates through the help menus.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for replying back to me.

I DID NOT fix the problem!!!! I use PrintMaster Platinum 18. I'm sorry, but I do not see paying you $10.00 (or any amount) to solve this problem.

Thanks anyway.
