Karla emailed to ask this question:
How do you fix printer issues when using Windows 7? I can’t print coupons for Target or e-centives. I keep getting an error message about the coupon activator not being supported. Anywhere I can download an update coupon activator for Windows 7?
Unfortunately, I’m not sure anyone can help here. Here’s what e-centives says:
Note: e-Centives does not support Internet Explorer on a Mac. If you are using a Mac, please use Safari or Firefox to print coupons. e-Centives does not support Chrome for any platform, or any browser on Windows 7 at this time.
Here’s what e-centives does support:
– Windows 2000, ME, XP and Vista when used with any of the following browsers: Internet Explorer 6.x and 7.x, or Firefox 2.x and 3.x.
– Mac OS 10 and above when used with any of the following browsers: Safari 2.x and 3.x, and Firefox 2. x and 3.x.
– The Coupon Print Activator software is updated from time to time to meet newer versions and/or types of popular browsers, so please check back to see if support for your operating system and/or browser has been added.
– Please note that in general “Beta” operating systems and/or browsers may not be supported. Coupon printing is not supported under Linux, Unix or Web TV platforms.
So, unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that there’s a way to print coupons from e-centives from Windows 7. My only advice would then be to get a Mac – I’ll let you know if there are any good coupons out there. ;)
Any other questions or tips about printing coupons, either on Windows or Mac? Here’s a list of common printable coupon problems and the solutions. If you’ve got a question that’s not answered there, leave a comment and I’ll see if I can find an answer!
