I have recently upgraded my computer, desktop, to a Windows 10 OS. I have unopened packages of PageMaker 6.5, Photoshop 5.0 and Illustrator 8.0. Will these products install and run on my new Win 10 machine?

No idea... but the ideas below MAY work

Two ideas that MAY work to install and/or run old programs in Windows 10
-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

OMG, mid-late 90's software on Win10.  I can't wait to see how this works out! 

 

All kidding aside, you're pushing your luck.  You really do need modern software that's compatible in every way with your modern computer.  Changes to security and file management are just 2 major reasons why.

Stay safe & best of luck!
