Printmaster Gold

I have used Pintmaster Gold from the PCA cover disc some whiile ago, always successfully.

Last week i had need to remove several programs, including pmw, from my Evesham Athlone machine running XP with SP2. Now I want to re-install it, but each time Iclick on the icon on the opening page of the PCA coverdisc, the system takes me straight into my word-processor, Lotus WordPro. I've tried working from a copy disc, and from the disc copied to the hard-drive, all to no avail.

What do I do next, please?

Hi, have you tried System Restore?

Thanks, Technotiger, but, to add to the rpoblems, it appears I can't go away from this month with System Restore. There are a few Restore points mid-month, after the problem arose, and it stubbornly refuses to go back to March.

Have you a solution for that as well?

With the CD in comp. Go to Windows Explorer Expand CD until you see the pmw program setup file double click it

After a whole "summer" devoted to other activities, I've come back to trying to re-install PCA's cover disc of PrintMaster Gold.

I tried your suggestion of opening the folder vis windows explorer. the screen told me that the pmwinst32.dat (or similar name) file was missing or corrupt. the dis c surface appears fine, and the program did install well before I put the disc safely away.

Do you have any other suggestions - or an alternative source for the file in question?

Thanks for your help so far.

Your CD drive may need a cleaning disc in it. Do not over use
