When you install it instead of double clicking on the install file right click it and select "Troubleshoot Compatibility" Then click "Try Recommended Settings" and in the next windows click "Start the Program" to install it.
After it installs see if it works correctly. Please note - some programs may not be able to run in windows 7. Windows 7 Compatibility Center Home to check compatibility: Thanks for marking this as the answer. How satisfied are you with this reply?
Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the site. How satisfied are you with this response? In reply to TrekDozer's post on December 30, I also changed the version on my laptop from Windows 7 to XP s 2, it opened up the software then so i continued and activated the Software. Either i was trying it over and over or it just wouldn't work. I had to reboot my new laptop and my Cricut Design Studio wouldn't work thereafter.
Now i can't make the change and the software won't open. When it shut down yesterday evening, it said there was a driver error. In reply to sweetsbia's post on December 30, Have Questions About Installing Windows 7? It does have an update The option is on the HELP menu in the program. So i can't even get into it. My new laptop comes with Windows 7, its a 30 day Free Trial period, and if i don't want to keep it, i was told it will roll back to the next latest which would be Windows Vista.
You will need to ask the computer manufacturer about that, they are the ones who set it up. But I have never heard of that before - did you buy the computer used? Will it "roll back" automatically? In the windows that pops up scroll down to the bottom - it will say if it's activated, or how many days you have to activate. See if there is a 25 character key on a sticker on your computer for Windows 7, or see if it's for Vista.
If the key is for Windows 7 use that key to activate Windows. If the key is for Vista contact the computer manufacturer and ask them about your situation.

More Cricut Hacks (aka eff you ProvoCrap)
Of course there are alternative digital die cutting units available that are much more flexible than the Cricut. For complete creative control and computer connectivity, consider cartridge-free die cutting systems. Still, there are existing Cricut die cutting machine users or cost-conscious consumers who may still be interested in software that opens up their Cricut to more creativity and customization. Luckily, Cricut has come out with a design software suite that brings more flexibility and more inclusive artistic control. Cricut DesignStudio is made by Provo Craft, and it lets you connect your Cricut to a computer to do more with Cricut fonts and shapes. You still have to actually purchase the Cricut cartridges to use them in your designs. Cricut DesignStudio is made by the same manufacturer as Cricut die cutting systems, Provo Craft, and lets you connect your Cricut to a computer. The Cricut software lets you adjust fonts and shapes with a number of tools. You have the flexibility to slant, rotate, flip and weld quite easily. Unfortunately, you are still limited to the fonts and shapes from cartridges you actually own.

How long does this firmware update typically take? I pulled out my Cricut V. Hi Narelle, I tried this and it still didn't pop up! The wheels on the machine don't roll or anything. Thank you so much! Lucie - It should only take about 20 minutes to update. If it stalls, you probably need to start again. LibbyLu - Which Cricut are you trying to update? The required firmware is in the post above.
