Better yet, do not install it. I was always a Printmaster fan having purchased several over the years but the encore Printmaster 2012 was a waste of money, check out the reviews. Unbelievably impossible to use! Now trying to uninstall and that is a pain in the neck too, just sitting there. Really turned me off of Printmaster all together
