Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

It depends on which version of Windows 7 you are using. The PrintShop program must be installed and run under Windows XP compatibility mode and certain versions of Windows 7 don't support this.

So, if you do the following and tell me what you find, we can determine compatibility for you:

Click on your Start Menu Button
Right click on My Computer
Choose Properties

Tell me the version of Windows 7 you see listed in the window that appears.

Thank you for that information.

Unfortunately Windows 7 Home Premium isn't able to run in Windows XP compatibility mode, so your copy of PrintShop 21 isn't listed as working with it.

However, there is a rather lengthy (but not difficult) process I'm happy to step you through if you'd like to give it a try. Many users have reported being able to get this software to run, albeit with some errors and some limited functionality.

However, depending on your specific needs, the basic version (not the pro) of PrintShop Deluxe 23 is available for about $35:
