Installing

In order to begin with the installation process we must first determine which version you have purchased.  At this time there are two ways to purchase the software.  As a retail disc or as a digital download.


Retail Disc

A boxed product, such as one you would buy at Wal*Mart or BestBuy, will include the DVD and a small insert, which contains an activation key. 

To install from a retail disc:

  1. Insert the disc into the DVD drive in your computer.
  2. The installation should begin automatically or give a pop-up asking you what you would like to do.  Select Run Setup.exe.
    Note: If the installation does not begin automatically follow these steps:
    1. Click on Start.
    2. Click on My Computer (Computer on Windows Vista and Windows 7)
    3. Right Click on the DVD drive containing The Print Shop 3.0 disc.
    4. Left Click on Open.
    5. Double Left Click on Setup.exe.
  3. The installer will now search your computer to make sure you have the required Windows Updates in order to install The Print Shop 3.0.
  4. If it detects that you are missing an update the installer will prompt you to install these now.  Once the updates are complete the installer will move to the next step automatically.
  5. From here you should follow the on screen prompts to complete the installation.

Digital Download

If you purchased The Print Shop 3.0 as a digital download from a website such as http://www.Broderbund.com you received an email confirming your purchase and an email with the download link and activation key. 

To install from a download:

  1. Open your email with the Subject line "Your Download order is ready."
  2. If your email provider allows, you can click on the link to begin your download.  If not, you will need to copy and paste the link from your email into your Internet browser's address bar.
  3. You will be prompted to run your download or save it.  Choose Save so that way if you ever require the ability to reinstall the program you will have the files to do so.
  4. Once your download completes you should get another prompt asking if you want to run the installer file from the completed download.  Choose Run.
  5. The installer will now search your computer to make sure you have the required Windows Updates in order to install The Print Shop 3.0.
  6. If it detects that you are missing an update the installer will prompt you to install these now.  Once the updates are complete the installer will move to the next step automatically.
  7. From here you should follow the on screen prompts to complete the installation.
