'C:\Program Files (x86)\PrintShop Mail Suite 7\PrintShop Mail\PSMail.exe'
'The application has failed to start because its side by side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.'

The event log gives me this ...

'Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files (x86)\PrintShop Mail Suite 7\PrintShop Mail\PSMail.exe". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC90.MFC,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="9.0.21022.8" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.'

Guessing this has to do with 64 bit. Also tried running in compatibility mode.

I can't explain why, but apparently you're missing the VC++ 2008 runtime libraries . PSM depends on the x86 version even when it's running on a 64 bit OS.
