I am trying to load a very old version of Photoshop 6.0 into my Win 7 computer. It won't even install, it just stopped. Is there any compatibility mode I can make it work?

Thanks

Don't know why you should have a problem. I'm running Photoshop 6.0 on my Win7 laptop

Thanks for the reply, I can't even load it. It came up with the installation screen, but when I click Photoshop 6.0 then click Install, nothing happen!!! I'll pop the disk and try again.

Try running it in a compatibility mode

I was looking around for this because I have even older programs to be loaded. This is what I need next time.

Thanks
