I have PrintShop Mail 7.2.11 installed two federal government computer running Windows 10. When I try to open the application, a window pops up titled "unhandled exception", and the app closes. I will include the text inside the window at the end of this post.
How can I fix this issue? We depend on this software. Do I need to install a different version?

Found this on the web about FIPS:
Windows has a setting that prevents applications on the machine from using encryption that are not compliant with Federal Information Processing Standards(FIPS). This setting is typically only needed for servers that contain government data.

You might want to check with your IT people if that can be turned off.
