Question about Broderbund PrintMaster Platinum 16

1 Answer

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 platinum edition and the saved files from printmaster 15 will not open with the 2011 edition. These files are important as we use them for business. How can I use the printmaster 15 files with the 2011 edition. Thank You

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.

Today I tried installing the same software with the registration key #. It kept saying the number was not valid as well. I typed in "O"s instead of zeros. When I typed in the zeros the software allowed you to go through with the installation process.

SOURCE: I WOULD LIKE TO CONVERT

If I was in your place I would use a direct connection if both computer's are connected to the internet ...and in the same default gateway ..its easy ..cause you can find the other computer into my network places folder..after you select the view workgroup computers task ...You will have to disable the firewall in both machines and after that you will have access on the other computer just like in my computer folder..and copy files...
If they are not on the same workgroup...than you can use a remote control program to transfer the files directly ..THis one will do the job ..,all you have to do is to install it on both machines ..open in the remote one ..and in yours..and get the ed and password offered by the program and connect to it ..after that you basically have ful access to it ..even tranfer files..
here is the program :http://www.teamviewer.com/index.aspx
If the machines are not connected to the internet than the only way is to use a large memory stick or an external hard drive ...or just get the hard drive from the one you need the files and connect it temporary to the other one ..and you will find its partition in My computer ..after that just copy paste the files in the other partition from the computer you intend to use..

Hi, I have used printmaster premier 7.0 for a few years on my old computer and have loved the program. The problem I am having is I bought a new computer that runs windows 7. I tried to install printmaster...


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.

I bought a new computer with windows 7, have older version of printmaster permier 8.0 and it will not install. help


Hi lavernhess
There is no direct solution to this issue since there is no driver running under Windows 7 for your product .
You could install a virtual version of XP on your machine with http://download.cnet.com/VMware-Player/3000-2094_4-10470784.html or via Microsoft's if you are using Integral or Professional .
Otherwise , you will need to purchase a recent version of Printmaster compatible with W 7 , if available .
Best regards ,

I have used PrintMaster 10 for a number of years on my old computer-XP. I recently purchased a new computer and wish to put the program on my laptop( Windows 7). I tried choosing the compatibilty method...


The only solution with this older software that will work is to use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate (or are willing to upgrade to one of these versions), you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them. You can't have a printer installed on both the main computer and the virtual one at the same time. You will be asked to uninstall the printer if you try.

Your other option is to upgrade to PrintMaster Platinum 18.1, see http://www.broderbund.com/ for details, which is compatible with Windows 7. This will import your Printmaster 10 projects.


I hope this helps.

Installing PrintMaster 18 on any computer requires .NET Framework 1.1 to be installed on the hard drive. If NET Framework 1.1 is not installed, it will be installed from thePrintMaster 18 install disk before PrintMaster 18 is installed.

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

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:))
