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?

This is likely due to compatibility issues between the software and operating system. Older versions of Photoshop may not be compatible with newer operating systems like Windows 7.
There are a few potential solutions that you can try, such as running the program in compatibility mode or using virtualization software. However, these may not always work and it may be best to upgrade to a newer version of Photoshop.
It is possible that your older version of Photoshop may work on a different operating system, but it may not be officially supported by Adobe. It is recommended to check the system requirements for your specific version of Photoshop before attempting to use it on a different operating system.
In most cases, files created in older versions of Photoshop should be compatible with newer versions. However, there may be some minor compatibility issues, so it is always a good idea to save your files in a universal format like .PSD or .JPEG.
This ultimately depends on your specific needs and usage of Photoshop. If you are experiencing issues with your older version and it is not compatible with your operating system, it may be worth considering an upgrade. Additionally, newer versions of Photoshop often have more features and improvements that may benefit your work.
