Customer Question

I doubt it. I've just learned some upsetting news that I cannot access my own Printmaster Platinum 18 files that I've created over the years. My old computer was giving out, so before I chance losing everything, I got a new computer, and of course is Windows 10, 64 bit. I thought I'd be in good shape, But Windows 10 does not support my PM 18 and Printmaster is saying that their new version v7 will not imiport PM 18 projects. I have 135 files that most are of my own designs, so I am upset and should have hung onto my old computer a little longer so I could at least access my own files.
JA: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your machine, and what operating system are you running?
Customer: HP Pavilion, Windows 10, 64 bit
JA: Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: Yes. But PM 18 is not compatible with windows 10, not even windows 8
JA: Anything else you want the software expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just hope there is a way around this issue and that I can access and hopefully edit my own projects. or at least be able to convert my PM 18 files into a .jpeg so I can at least view and use my own designs.

Sorry, but thanks anyway, I do not want to do remote tech support. Because there is no problem with my computer, the problem is that Windows 10 will NOT accept an old software program I have. And I've already contacted the software company, and they do not have another version that is compatible with Win 10 that will also import my old project files from the old software. I'm just out of luck! That there is no way to access or import my old files.

But, there is solutions for that and that is why I suggested Remote support. I can install Virtual machine and supporting os on your windows 0. So you can run the old OS on that virtual machine.
