Specs: Windows 7 with pro upgrade
bought windows 7 pro upgrade card. But want to ensure printshop 6.0 will work in xp emulation mode before I install this $80 upgrade. Or is there another way to get printshop 6.0 to work on windows 7

XpUser4Real, not having success on running compatibility mode, but probably just inexperience on my part. I load the Printshop deluxe disk in system and click install. It posts and icon for install but goes no further. Can you be a bit more specific for a novice on where and what to right click at that stage to become an administrator and see compatibility mode to run. Thanks for your patience and help.

To XpUser4Real - Update, I did find compatibility feature under windows tab in the printshop 6.0 software. Clicked sp3 and ran as admin- applied and tried again. (There were actually two application files twunk16 and twunk32 that I changed to compatability). Still can't get printshop 6.0 installed. Checked my xp software and found it to be sp2. Tried that as well - still no luck. Getting message "unsupported 16 bit application setup.exec cannot start or run due to incompatibility". Hopefully, I'm still not doing something right. Please advise. Thanks.

I'm trying to do the same thing. Looks like you can't just use the Properties tab to change to admin and set to XP. Looks like you might have to upgrade to Professional version of Win7 to get the XP virtualization mode capability. I want to make sure that will work before I give that a try. What is your status Jimmyz6?
