With the Creative Cloud app, you can go one version back (and uninstall your current version). What version are you looking to install?

As far as I can remember InDesign 2020 was the last version compatible with Windows 7 and is no longer available for download. Adobe only makes InDesign 2021 and 2022 available for download and install.

 

Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 7 quite some time ago. It's time to move on.

Hi @amandab22513192 

 

Check ProDesign Tools to see if they have the download you need:

Be sure to turn off automatic updates in the CC app until you can upgrade your computer and OS.

Here you can find v2019 - https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cc-2019-direct-download-links.html

 

My strong opinion - there is no reason to stay with WIN7/XP if you want to use it latest Adobe Software as subscription. Check your purse for the futire upgrade of OS and hardware. 

 

Even if your old PC works with some scanner/plotter/RIP/other machine your are need new PC. Stay away this old PC with old hardware only for their old tasks without Adobe CC. 

 

Remember, never say you can't do something in InDesign, it's always just a question of finding the right workaround to get the job done. © David Blatner

Way past time to move on. You should be able to update to Win10 with nothing but beneficial results.
