Since 2014, Microsoft has stopped providing security updates or technical support for Windows XP. Furthermore, since April 2017, the same is valid for Windows Vista. As a consequence of this, we are also unable to further continue to update our offline creator tool in Windows XP and Vista.
Since January 2020, Windows 7 also does not receive any security updates from Microsoft anymore.
Our advice is to download the creator tool on a computer that is running on Windows 8 or higher and move the photo books to this computer. You can continue with the photo book and order it from there.
How do I know if I am using Windows XP or Vista?
To check which version of Windows you are running, please visit this website. It will automatically tell you what operating system you are using.
How can I upgrade Windows XP or Vista to a higher Windows version?
You can read more about this topic on the Microsoft Support website.
You must migrate to a current supported operating system – such as Windows 10 – so you can receive regular security updates from Microsoft to protect your computer from possible malicious attacks. Our creator tool will work in Windows 8 or higher.
Will my photo books get deleted if I use Windows XP or Vista?
The photo books will not be deleted from the computer. The creator tool saves all photo books in a default location. The default location is "My documents", within the "Bonusprint photo books" OR "Bonusprint" folder. Our advice is to download the creator tool on a computer that is running on Windows 8 or higher and move the photo books to this computer. You can continue with the photo book and order it from there.
How can I transfer my photo books to a computer with a higher Windows version?

Please note: It is not possible to open a product in another tool. i.e. if you have created a photo book with our online creator tool, you can’t open it with our offline creator tool.
