Ok, I had CCR on my old laptop and I just bought a new one a few days ago and I cannot get Cricut Craft Room to open. It jus keeps saying "Initializing" and will not even bring up the screen to sign in or anything.

Help!!! I sold my old laptop already so I really need this to work ASAP!!!Cursing

Have you downloaded CCR to more than two computers?

Which CRICUT machine are you using? Be sure you have updated it before you do anything else.

It's the weekend; if you try it tonight or tomorrow and need any help, come back and ask. Maybe someone can help you. Go by the directions you have; I'm merely giving you some of the information here....just in case you need a little help other than what you already know to do.

DELETE BROWSING HISTORY in your internet browser....while on the internet go up to TOOLS and you'll see the prompts.

When you download CCR, be sure you wait (after the download) for another popup to download ADOBE AIR. You need it to run CCR.

I would turn off your computer after the download.
Plug in the USB cord to your hard drive and turn on your CRICUT. Now, turn on your computer. Your computer should recognize new hardware and you should see that it does.

You should see the CCR Icon on your desktop. Click into it and sign in....using the exact same password you use for your cricut.com account.

INSTALL THE DRIVERS (go up to the HELP menu in CCR) for your machine.

Over in the left hand column, click on MACHINES and tell your computer which machine you have hooked up to your computer.

I hope it works for you. Good luck!!

Lovinstouch, I actually just figured it out by something somebody posted in another thread. Here is the info that helped me out greatly!

Here are the directions to install using Windows 8:
Using the Cricut Craft Room® design software on Windows® 8
(1) Download and install the software from www.cricut.com/craftroom
(2) When installation is complete, a Cricut Craft Room® icon should appear on your desktop.
a. If Cricut Craft Room® automatically opened after installation, please close it.
(3) Right click on the icon and click “Properties” to open the Properties window.
(4) Click to view the “Compatibility” tab.
(5) Within the “Compatibility” tab, check the box next to ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for:”. Make sure the drop down menu just below shows “Windows 7”.
(6) Click OK

You also need to click on RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR when you change the compatability to WINDOWS 7. This won't hurt your computer; it's merely letting your WINDOWS 8 run in compatability mode for CCR.


Additionally you will need to add the Cricut Craft Room Program and the CCRBridge.exe program from the program file folder to your exceptions in your antivirus. After this is done you should be able to access Cricut Craft Room just fine!

I hope that helps you out because I know I was about ready to pull my hair out and start bawling! I'm elated now that I finally got this to work!

I'm thinking this may also be the trick to getting my printer to work as well Wink
