Has anybody figured out how to install photoshop 6.0 in windows 11?
I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the Download and Install forum so that proper help can be offered.
you could try compatibility mode, but i doubt you have a compatible os. and you can't activate anyway.
I believe activation was first introduced with Photoshop CS. So there was no activation on version 6.0 (if that ancient version is the one the OP is referring to).
But as you say, Windows 11 is likely to be incompatible anyway since it's several software generations later than version 6.0 was written for.
Do you mean CS6 or the REALLY old version 6 from before Creative Suite?
Two ideas that MAY work to install and/or run old programs in Windows 10 or Windows 11-RIGHT click the program icon or EXE and select a compatibility mode in the pop up option window-and/or select Run as Administrator to assign FULL Windows permissions-also https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/create-local-administrator-account-windows.html
