Question about Avanquest Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I purchased a CD today 160,000 Clip Art images. I did not check the packaging and I run Windows 7 which is not supported by this CD, according to the back. Do I have to have one of the 3 CD's supplied in my drive at all times to be able to use or can it be downloaded onto my computer. I won't be putting in a CD everytime I want an image. I will toss the product in the bin.

So there are possibly a couple different things you can do. First off if it's not compatible with Windows 7 it's not compatible. You can run the program in compability mode, so if you install it on the computer, you can right click the desktop icon select properties then the compatibility tab, and you can run it in Windows XP Service Pack 3.

Now if you just want the whole CD on your computer you can put the CD in the CD drive then go to my computer or in your case you Computer right click the CD and choose open, then you will be able to see the contents of the CD and you can use Ctrl + A to select all, then right click and select copy, then paste the contents into a directory on your computer then you will have the program on you computer that you can use without having to put the CD in.

I had Printmaster 8 and used it a lot - I have now purchased a new pc with Windows 7 and the 8 won't load onto it. I have downloaded 12 but I cannot use the gallery or art or the old art cds which is...

Hi Vivienne.
I have not used PM for many years (DOS 6 & Win 3.1 days), so i'll just make an educated guess what the cause could be:

Your newer version, Printmaster 12, may use a different file-extension, in other words, image file format, to the original PM8.

Explorer may show the extension if set up for this otherwise use the DOS method via a Notepad-written batch-file, PMext_CD.cmd.

Flash drive, aka Pendrive should be in your USB.
This saves the hassle of remembering your default documents path.
Of course, if you have a second HDD for storage, use it for the output result file.

Let's assume flash is drive F: and CD is drive D:
Open Notepad, presuming your OS is WIN xx.

@echo off
echo SEARCHING.....
Echo CD_DRIVE D FILES>>f:\pmfiles_all.txt
color 4E

save "all files" as PMext_CD.cmd

You can do the same for your PM12 HDD folder.
Batch-file name = PMext_HDD.cmd

Note: the PM pictures may be stored in a zipped or encrypted database, which will render the batch-file useless.

Failing that, try found out who makes PM from the CD sleeve, email them directly.

Hope this helps you.

My power point froze while loading clip art

The Office XP and 2003 applications (powerpoint, word, excel, etc) may freeze or hang when searching for clip art. If repairing your installation does not resolve this issue, read on.

By default, microsoft assumes that when you search for clip art not only do you want to search your hard drive you also want to connect to the internet and grab related images from Privacy issues aside, this can cause your computer to hang if the office web site is down or there are many online images returned from the search. Worst yet, it seams these images are not cached. Thus the same search will re-download all the images over and over and over again.

You can disable this feature by navigating to insert > picture > clip art and clicking on the drop-down selection box that says "Search all collections". There is a checked-box label "web". Uncheck it.

I have an old version of your clip art product. How can I run it on Windows 7?

Are you sure it won't work, outright?

Try installing it. If it doesn't work you can try installing via Win 7 compatibility mode.

Let me know if you need specifics.

Customizer 11000 does not convert image files to stitch files

I'm assuming you are refering to the auto tracing function of the program. Customiser 11000 is a very limited layout and editing program, it's digitising function is extremely limited.
What is never explained satisfactorily to the purchaser, is the requirement for exceptionally clean artwork. Scanned photographs, colouring book images etc are not clean artwork. You need vector clip art, optomised clip art you find on the web is too "dirty" and needs a great deal of "cleaning" in a graphics program. Use the WMF import function and source a decent supply of WMF clip art. Most commercial clip art collections offer WMF as an option as do the clip art for digitisers sites.
Another reason for your program freezing could be an underpowered video display card, if your computer has a shared graphics card you're underpowered. Also your Ram, Customiser 11000 is a CAD based program which uses a lot of ram playground and a lot of your display cards muscle, whatever the programs specs are, triple them.
Check which version of the program you have, then visit Janome global, select downloads, software , and see if you have the latest version, if not, download the newest version.
