If that is the really old PrintShop DLX that I remember from the mid 1990's then it probably is a 32bit program with a 16bit installer originally intended for Windows 95 and '98, then it will not be able to install on that machine. Windows 7, especially the 64bit variety, does not support the 16bit installer any longer. The latest that it would have worked would be 32bit XP if installed under '95 compatibility settings.

If it is not as old as I think it is, then try installing it under XP compatibility. If this does not work, then it is probably as I described above and will not work.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

64 bit Windows does not support 16 bit applications so 16 bit installers cannot run. Windows does have a partial solution. If the installer is one of a small number supported Windows will substitute a 32 bit version. If it is not recognized the install cannot proceed.

We really need to know the full version of the software.
