Sierra Print Artist

  DÕ DÕ 15:46 16 Sep 2005

I have recently purchased “Print Artist 8” that was successfully installed and working. It has since been re-installed and now keeps telling me to change my resolution to 600x800 at 16bits or higher the system I work with is “Windows XP Professional” and is set to 1280x1024 at 32bits.I am therefore puzzled as to why it fails to activate the software.
Your help will be greatly appreciated

Too late to go back (System Restore) to when it functioned correctly? TC.

Sierra have long gone. Any links take you to Vivendi Universal's web site which is completely games orientated. I think the only version of Print Artist (which my kids loved) which was fully compatible with Windows XP was version 18 which was an 8 CD version. Almost impossible to get hold of and in fact I saw one go for £52 on ebay last week. The problem is that the bulk of the versions were 16 bit and won't even load under XP. Those which do load normally need to run in compatibility mode. The versions bundled with Epson printers are circa 1996/98.

I am on the search again dear friends. I take short movies with the "Sony 828 Camera" with sound and every thing works out perfectly but when playing through "Media Player" the sound starts to stutter.Can anyone help to solve my problem.

Sony 828 Digital Camera

Do Do the way to get a response on this 'NEW' problem is to tick this one as resolved as so often
requested. Then post your Sony Sound problem with its own heading as a NEW request.
No one with Video knowledge will look in Sierra now will they?
PS I dont know about video cameras either.
