Well, we didn't need the Disk Management screen print - that was my mistake.
But, you did see you can post a screen print here, and that's good .

Right now I think you should post a screen print of what you see with the PrintMaster program running.
I don't have PrintMaster, so you have to show me and everyone trying to help, what you see.

Yup, unless someone here has the program you have, we are shooting in the dark.

What "menu" options do you have in the PM program ...
Can you open a .sig file?

Right now, I think you are the only one that knows.

I don't know if there is a "SF Chat", and I'm not sure a chat would help ...
I think it's best to post openly in this thread ...
I'm no guru and others may have better ideas, or correct me if I say something wrong or stupid.

If we can't get to the bottom of this in this thread, you may do need better "hands on" help than me...

David, can I call you DAVID???? You know we have been at this for HOURS. Did you get some dinner????

Printmaster opens .sig files. It is a Broderbund program and every project I make is saved as a .png

Broderbund cut off its support as they made newer versions. I have over 200 projects, pics and crafts in my program that can't be opened by anything else.

The newer versions they have will not open my old version projects.

I can open a PrintMaster File while I am in the program with an Open New Project. Just not on my desktop.
Because I have so many projects it tawes forever to open so I like to have a fileon the desktop when working on a project.

Yea, call me David, no problem...

With that reply, I see I misunderstood the real problem.
If Broderbund cut off its support for your version, the way you want to use it, I can't help.

Maybe they have a forum with other people having the same issue ???
You could also try googling to see if you can find others with the problem, and if they found a solution ...

I seem to always find dinner and food when needed - no problem there

No, I don't remember ...
But, if you installed an old program that is not compatible with the OS you are using and it somehow ran, who knows what might have happened ...
I've seen that with other programs, someone I help installs an old program they have, it wasn't compatible, and "what a mess" ...
Just saying ... what I've seen

Without reading back through this whole thread,
Do you have a Restore Point (or backup image) from before the problem started?

Can you go back and redo what you did with the install.exe but choose the pmw.exe this time?

It's probably the PMW.exe that is the PrintMaster program you are running.
