Paint Shop Pro 8 doesn’t work

Dec 9, 2017 12:52PM PST

After a windows update my Jasc Paint Shop Pro 8 doesn’t work. I’m asked to put in the CD which of course I can’t find. Does anyone know how I can get this to work?

Without the CD?

Thanks for your time and suggestions, but I don’t know what you mean by wait. I repeatedly tried to open it and finally got it to work. The thing is in doing so many different steps I can’t remember what finally got it to open. At least I know it can work.

I never did find a fix

Without using the CD or the files from the CD. I meant to wait till you found it but so many different steps means a lot of lost time. From now on, be sure to collect the CDs you need to fix stuff or copy them onto some backups.

For CD's I've found it useful to create the usual .ISO file. Disk space is cheap today and I'll trade that for my time.
