Scrapbook Flair software...
Hi everyone!! Hope everyone is having a good evening. I have tried downloading the software three times, but I have been unsuccessful....
:( Everything goes well up until it's time to configure Microsoft{R}.NET Framework... I receive an error message that says: 1603:Error installing Microsoft{R}.NET Framework. Not sure what is going on. Has anyone else run into this problem?? Any suggestions? Thank you for reading my post!

I`m using windows 7 and didn`t have any problem, but my daughter is also using windows 7 and couldn`t download SBF software either. I guess it has to do with the firewall

All,

Here are the instructions from support to install the software with Windows 7.

If you are having trouble installing the Scrapbook Flair Software on Windows 7, please install the following packages.

1. Download Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Redistributable Package
dotnetfx.exe

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=262D25E3-F589-4842-8157-034d1e7CF3A3&display=en&displaylang=en

2. Download Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1
NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe

http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=33

Make sure that the file is renamed and saved asdotnetfxsp1.exe , so that
the rest of the steps can be followed easily.

3. Make a note where you have saved the files so you can pull up the file to install the software.

For FireFox, after the downloading has finished, you will see a browser window listing all downloaded files. Right click the file just downloaded and select Open Containing Folder and you will see the downloaded file shown in the Windows Explorer window.

For Google Chrome, there will be a file icon displayed at the bottom of the window. Right click on the file icon and select Show in Folder and you will see the file in the Windows Explorer window.

4. Right click on dotnetfx.exe and select run as administrator, then follow
the screen instructions to finish the installation.

5. Right click on asdotnetfxsp1.exe and select run as administrator, then
follow the screen instructions to finish the installation.

6. Install Scrapbook Flair Software or start Scrapbook Flair Software if you
have installed the software successfully.

Once you install these packages, you should be able to install the Software.

I did all of this, only thing is to make sure that you run as administrator. Finally got it to install.

I see references to using other members kits, but cannot find them any help appreciated.

many people use other software, I use photoshope and paintnet.
You can upload your pages from your homepage by clicking upload and follow the directions there.
You can also save your page as jpeg or png and upload through the SBF software by clicking share and follow the directions.
Wish you a lot of scrapping fun here on SBF

for other members kit go to marketplace on top of this page. You can find a lot of freebies there that you can download from the posters blogs and websites. And what a lot of people do, they look at others pages what they have used in the credits section

I found this explanation about ptf on google
Session file format used by Pro Tools 7.0 and later; includes audio, MIDI, and software instrument tracks; also includes audio effects, automations, and project settings; contains references to audio recordings, but does not store the actual audio data within the file.

PTF files are cross-platform, meaning they can be opened on both Windows and Macintosh computers. However they are not backwards compatible with previous versions of Pro Tools.

The best you can do is google on free extractor for ptf files, so that you can open it.

Rae Ann says:
Neeltje,

The ptf files are specific to the Scrapbook Flair software. If you would like to use the templates with other software programs, you will need to order the psd or png files available as speed downloads in the download section.

I'm having the same problem as Scrappy Mammie but with Windows 8. Will the "fix" work for Windows 8 too?
