Did you install print shop 6?
You browse to the projects and try to open them. What is the error?

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

First of all of course you must install Print Shop (preferably the newest of the two versions you have) on your Windows 7 PC if you want to open any Print Shop files on it.

Secondly, if Print Shop won't run properly on Windows 7 you can use Compatibility Mode:

1) Right-click the Print Shop shortcut and choose "Properties".
2) Click the "Compatibility" tab.
3) Click "Run this program in compatibility mode for .........."
4) Select "Windows XP SP3" from the drop-down list.
5) Click 'OK'
6) Now double-click the shortcut to open Print Shop.

(You only need to set the compatibility options once as above, they will be applied automatically in future).

I am sorry to say this did not help.

Windows 7 is 64 bits and Print shop 5 and 6 both are 32 bits.
Error comes back as the following:

PSPE5\setup\is_setup.exe setup 32

same for PSPE6
