How to Install Print Shop

by Lysis

Print Shop is software that helps people design, create, and manipulate images. The software allows a user to create a wide variety of materials including labels, posters, book covers, newsletters, and business cards. Installing Print Shop is normally a matter of simply inserting the CD and following the prompts, but the installation wizard can freeze when certain applications are running in the background. If this happens, removing the running applications, installing Print Shop, and returning to the previous settings are required.

Click the Windows "Start" button and select "Run." Type "msconfig" in the textbox and press the "Enter" key. This opens a configuration window for startup options.

Click the "Startup" tab. Take note of all the checked software applications. Clear all the checkboxes and restart the computer when prompted.

Insert the Print Shop CD when the computer boots. The autorun.exe will automatically start the wizard. Click "Install" at the summary screen.

Enter a location for the software to save the installation files on your computer. Once you are finished with the prompts, the wizard installs the software on your computer.

Follow steps 1 and 2 to go back to the startup options. Check the boxes that were marked before removal and click the "Ok" button. Restart the computer when prompted.
