Print Shop 10 can't connect to internet

by jjjjmorgan / November 20, 2004 5:39 AM PST

I am using The Print Shop 10 by Borderbund. I build a web page project.
When I try to use the 'publish to web' option, it never connects.
I get an 'Attempting to connect to the internet' dialoug and after a while
I get 'Failed to establish internet connection. Timed out'
AOL is my ISP.
On the Borderbund support site, I found Technical Note ID: 30527
which says...

Complete this procedure to connect to the Internet using Print Shop

To be able to publish, you have to have a web server that allows such to be publised. I don't see in your post any mention of such a site.

I am trying to post to my AOL members web page area.
members.aol.com/jjjjmorgan or something like that. I was hopeing that print shop would prompt me for where I wanted to publish the document. I never got that far. It only told me it could not connect to the internet (after a minute or so for trying.) I am using Print Shop 10. The current version is Print Shop 20. I suppose if I upgraded to the latest version it may work better. But, I am cheap, I dont want to worry about upgrading all my existing print shop files, and I hoped the software would work as advertised even tho it is old.

Here's the deal-e-o.

It's possible that when PrintShop 10 shipped that it was able to publish to AOL, but AOL has undergone at least 4 transformations so this software might not be able to pull off this trick any more.

Read http://forums.thetechguys.com/archive/index.php/t-10970.html and see if that helps.

But again I think this feature is now dead.
