PrintMaster 8 should install quite easily on a 32-bit version of Windows 7.
When you are asked if you want to install DirectX, you should say NO - because the version of DirectX that is installed with PrintMaster 8 is older than the version of DirectX which is already installed on your computer.
It is not possible to register PrintMaster 8 - because 1) PrintMaster 8 is several years old and 2) the 'free offer' was discontinued many years ago.
NOTE: #1 Even though PrintMaster 8 will successfully install on a 32-bit version of Windows 7, there is no guarantee that PrintMaster 8 will be completely compatible with Windows 7 - because PrintMaster 8 was originally designed for only these Operating Systems
Windows 95 / 98 / Me
NOTE: #2 The PrintMaster hub:
When PrintMaster 8 is first started, the PrintMaster hub will be displayed - with 4 buttons in the 'Open' section.
It should be noted that the PrintMaster 2.0 & 2011 templates which are offered for sale on that web site will not work with PrintMaster 8.0.
4. The 'Art & More Store' button will appear to work correctly. But, it won't take you anywhere - because the Art & More Store was closed several years ago.
Serif DrawPlus 3.0, which is automatically installed with PrintMaster 8, appears to work quite well on a 32-bit version of Windows 7.
64-bit version of Windows 7:
It is not possible to install PrintMaster 8 on a 64-bit version of Windows 7 - because any attempt to do so will result in this error message being displayed.
What that message means is that PrintMaster 8.0's setup.exe file contains 16-bit programming code. Since 64-bit Operating Systems cannot handle 16-bit programming code, it will not be possible to install PrintMaster 8.0 on any 64-bit Operating System.
