I am running PrintMusic 2008, which is no longer supported. I recently installed PM to a new computer running Windows 8.1, and cannot access the User Manual, which is web-based. I get a message saying "file:///C:/Program%20Files.... Make sure the path or Internet address is correct". No one at PM seems to be able to help. My assertion is that, since I paid for the product, part of it is missing and they should be able to provide it for me without having to pay $40 to upgrade. Anyone else run into this problem and found a workaround? Thanks kindly.

Dale,

You might get a better response if you would ask your question in the finale for windows forum or submit a support request to makemusic.

Best wishes

Jim, thanks for replying. I was under the impression I was posting in the appropriate place. Print Music is listed under Make Music. Can you point me to a more effective post? Much appreciated.

Thank you, Ralph. opening the Print Music files, I don't see anything that I can relate to a User Manual. (The 2008 and your 2014 files look different). I don't know how to take a screen shot or I would show you. I agree with you that they should be able to send me the Manual in some format, but customer support balked. I find it hard to believe that it is not available or possible.

MM online resource seems to only go back to 2009 manual.

Ralph, thanks a million. I don't know why I wasn't referred to this page by Support. 2009 should be close enough.

Thanks again,

Dale
