Photoshop 7 is compatible with Windows 10 . Unless you say what errors you are seeing instead of making a blanket statement-that it doesn't install-its frankly difficult to help.

Hello,

make sure you are installing with full administrator permissions. Right click the installation file and select  Run As Admin.

Hello,

this is an interesting thread about the same issue

Re: Photoshop 7 to cc

It sounds incredible to have to wait 20 minutes for an installer to start, but why not try do a fresh install and just leaving it for an hour-just in case it is a speed thing. Also take note of the warning about Photoshop 7 not recognizing large free spaces on the hard disk. You probably could get around that if it affects you by partitioning the disk to make it visible to Photoshop

Hi!

Decided to give it one more chance:

This morning at 8 am I put  the CD into the drive.

As usual the installation stopped in a few minutes (blue wheel disappeared) with silence from the PC

At 8.35 I was asked to find free space (900 KB) for temporary files- I ignored this as my free space war approx 450 GB..

Approx 2 hours later (10.17 am) I gave up and removed the CD from the drive and used the PC for other purposes.

At 10.42 am a message popped up saying something like this:

There is no or a wrong disc in drive E

Please insert correct disc.

I thought why not, so I re-loaded the program disc  - and HURRAH -  the installation started as it has always done on windows XP and 7.

And now it works perfectly.

Besr regards

Preben Kaas

PS. thanks for your help and kind assistance..  Hope above will be helpfull to others.

Very interesting, so it is a time related issue. I imagine if the CD had been in the drive then it would have proceeded after the two hours. Please could you mark the thread as answered as otherwise anyone searching on the issue will probably ignore it as everyone wants the solution and not just speculation about what to try.

Glad its now working

I had given a link in your other thread before i realized you had posted the same question twice.

It also had to do with having to wait a while for the installer to actually bring up the dialog to start the actual install of photoshop 7 on windows 10.

Old Photoshop version on Windows 10, how?

I also tried to install Photoshop 7 on a new Dell computer with Windows 10.

It won't even let me install it - it says "scratch disk is full."

What can I do?

Hi Marciah, and anyone else struggling with installing Photoshop 7 in Windows 10.

I was having issues installing also, but now I have Photoshop 7 installed and working perfectly in Windows 10 on two computers (1 desktop and 1 laptop, both running Windows 10). Here is what I did:

  1. Insert the Adobe Photoshop 7 CD in your CD/DVD drive
  2. Open the CD so you can view all contents in File Explorer / Finder
  3. Select all files and copy them to your hard drive
  4. Once all files are copied, remove the CD
  5. Open the location where you copied the CD files on your hard drive
  6. Navigate to the 'Photoshop' folder
  7. Run 'Setup.exe'

My original disc was very clean, no visible scratches or anything. I do not know why Photoshop would not install from the CD but I hope this answer helps someone out there.

Once installed, you do not need to run the program as an administrator or in compatibility mode. It works just fine for me, the same as it did in every other OS before (Windows XP, 7, 8, 8.1)

Blessings,
Cody

Mine installed with no problem.  But when I try to open it and use it...  "Scratch disk full". and it closes.  I've found sites that say to defrag the computer.  Which I did.  Nope.  Scratch disk full.   Brand new computer.  Less than a month old.  A terabyte of space.  Really really frustrating.

Your problem could well be that you have 1TB of space, silly as that may sound. Photoshop 7 is a very old piece of software and doesn't have a clue that giant drives exist. Try taking a partition tool either a commercial one, or there are also free tools available, then partition that terabyte of space so you have a partition that's about 150GB Point Photoshop to that as your scratch disk. If that works it may be an idea to create another of the same size as the secondary scratch disk. You can of course put other files or apps on that 2x150GB as well as scratch disks so your not really wasting your hard drive space, just segmenting it.  There are configurational reasons why PS might not see scratch disks as well, but my first approach would be the smaller partition. Hope it works for you

Can you help with this query please. 

My PC is 3 years old, but the Photoshop 7 disc  must be 10 years old.... Since I installed Windows 10 last year (free), 2016 - there has been problems saving the many layers I have on various new files.

Now I have had to save each layer with  a different file name,  The SAVE  command , brings up a statement , that " this file already exists". So I rename each layer with a suffix letter. So far I have one File name eg; Carnival A, Carnival B; Carnival C. etc  with up to 15 layers.

A similar problem occurred last year but seems to have been cleared by  the next updates..   I am concerned that the Windows 10 is becoming incompatible with this old issue of Photoshop, can you advise please?

It has been suggested that the problem I have- with each layer needing to be saved individually  -  arises becuse I use Google Cloud Storage. Or any other Cloud storage I suppose. This is becuse of the synchronicity of the process.

Could this be possible?

And what is the alternative ?

Hi Terri

Many thanks for your advice. I have done as you suggested and created two partition drives following the advice of this chap on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdHjolzl7Gk I put the first scratch disc into the first partitioned drive and the second, third and fourth into the second partitioned drive, both of 150 gb. Alas I am still getting the message that the cache is full. I am also getting up a message about Twain drivers but I am not sure whether this is relevant or not. My son had left his old version of Photoshop on my old computer and when I upgraded that to Windows 10 (not without problems) I also saw the message about Twain drivers on there but it did not seem to affect my ability to save and edit. I now have a brand new PC and have bought a new version of Adobe Photoshop 7.

Have you any other suggestions please? I really miss not being able to use it. Many thanks Carol Nuttall

I just thought I would let those who kindly offered advice know that I have managed to sort out the problem of the message that the cache drive was full.   I did create two partitioned drives each of 150 gb and put the first scratch disk into one and the others disks into the second.   Alas this still didn't work.  However my son, who is a computer games artist and uses Photoshop all the time, came to visit and he tried a few things.  He thought that it was to do with the fact that Photoshop 7 couldn't cope with the size of my new C: drive but that the problem was saving any edits into this huge drive.  Instead he edited some photos and saved them into one of the 150 gb partitioned drives and it worked !   So I will now do any editing in the smaller partitioned drive and copy them back to my photo library in the C:drive.  Many thanks again to those who responded to me.

I recently purchased a new version of Adobe Photoshop 7 to load on to a new PC we had just bought.  At first it would not load and I got the message that the scratch disks were full.  The seller advised that I press Control plus Alt as Photoshop opened and indicate that I should put the scratch disks into the 😧 Recovery Drive.  I did this and then Photoshop opened successfully.  However, I now get the message 'Could not save cache file because the disk is full'.   Contacting the seller again he advised that there might not be enough memory in the D drive so I should partition the drive.  He sent me a YouTube video to guide me through this process, which I duly did and created a further drive I called Z and I put 10 gig into this.  To try to simplify things I also redirected the scratch disks to drive Z.  I am still getting the cache file disk full message and the seller seems to have no further suggestions.   Can anyone help me please.   I can edit my photos but cannot save the edits.  Many thanks

Regarding the OP's problem, it appears the installer exe requires to use resources held by other processes. For me it was Skype and Logitech wireless mouse software.

To work out what is "blocking" the installer:

  1. start  task manager, you'll see setup.exe running as a background process but consuming no CPU cycles.
  2. click on the "Details" tab in task manager
  3. scroll down to setup.exe, right click on it and select "Analyse wait chain"
  4. close the program / end the process which setup is waiting on

You may have to repeat steps 3 & 4 if there are multiple contentions. For me once I killed Skype & Logitech processes the installer popped up instantly. Also I ran setup.exe as administrator

yes! many thanks idleMartin (see post above) -- you have provided not only a solution, and an explanation of why so many people are having to wait before PS7 (sometimes) installs, but you did it clearly and concisely -- and you saved a friend from tearing out what's left of his hair in frustration -- and yes, Skype was one of the programs which was blocking the installation

Dear Idelmartin,

Thank you for the superb advice my friend. This addressed this incredibly annoying problem for me.

The thing blocking mine was rundll.exe. Once I ended that process, the Photoshop 7 install kicked in as usual.

Beginning to wish I'd gone with Windows 7 instead of being a guinea pig for 10 while they bug fix it!

Thanks so much for your great advice on this.

As soon as I followed your instructions it took less than 3 min. to complete the download process... I am so very happy. I think your instructions should be easier to locate so others can have this super quick fix!!!!!!!! thankyou again!

Hello.

I have just spend the better part of 1 hour with Adobe support trying to install PSE7 on a Win10 OS.

Everything is fine until I try to enter my serial/licens key. The installer claims the key is invalid, but it is copied from my account on the Adobe website.

When the supporter failed to complete the installation (after having de-activated firewall and scanner software) he (or she) claimed that PSE7 will not run on Win10 at all.

Any help, please?

I spent a good few hours trying to load Photoshop 7 onto my new windows 10 laptop without success

Finally just as I was about to give up a simple solution sprung into my mind. The good old F8 key.

Windows 10 still has a SAFE MODE on startup that limits what's running in the background.

Starting up in this mode allowed me to instantly load Photoshop 7 after hours of trying other methods.

The F8 key no longer works on Windows 10, this is what you'll need to do:

  1. Press Windows logo key Windows logo key+I on your keyboard to open Settings. If that doesn't work, select the Start button in the lower-left corner of your screen, then select Settings.
  2. Select Update & security > Recovery.
  3. Under Advanced startup, select Restart now.
  4. After your PC restarts to the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings >Restart.
  5. After your PC restarts, you'll see a list of options. Select 4 or F4 to start your PC in Safe Mode. Or if you'll need to use the Internet, select 5 or F5 for Safe Mode with Networking.


Then just load Photoshop 7 in safe mode before restarting your PC/Laptop normally.


This may also work with other software that struggles to load in Windows 10


I hope that this saves others the time that I wasted trying to resolve loading Photoshop 7 onto my Windows 10 Laptop

I have a related problem - PS7 under W10 won't recognize my Epson V850 Pro scanner as a Twain device. When I try doing an "import" sometimes the Epson logo comes up and disappears and several minutes later Windows tells me PS is "not responding" - other times PS tells me it cannot find the scanner at all. My W10 is Microsoft's upgrade from my original W7, I've tried reinstalling PS7 (and the 7.0.1 update) with no help, also the Epson utilities. The scanner itself works fine using its own software and I can move the resulting jpegs into PS7, so I'm not stuck, but just wondering if there's a way to get PS7 to recognize the scanner directly as it has always done for me in the past (since XP).

Since my WIndows PC upgraded to Windows 10 (which I did not ask for, by the way, it just 'happened'!), I cant' use Adobe Photoshop Elements 7...tried re-installing. Seemed to install fine. But when I try to open/use the program, it brings up a partial 'shell' of the usual page, with no content and nothing to click on...seems frozen. I DO get an error message:

"The monitor profile iAcer X203Hi appears to be defective. Please rerun your monitor calibration software." It then has 2 choices below this message, to click on: "Ignore Profile", or "Use Anyway". Neither has any effect. My monitor is fine, with all programs...so not sure why I suddenly can't see/use content on Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 anymore.

Is there a fix, short of buying the latest version? Any help appreciated!

I've had a similar problem.

The was no indication of an error, until I right-clicked the toolbar icon and selected Close. This gave an "Unhandled win32 error" and an offer to debug.

It looks as if Microsoft have changed something critical to PSE7? My last use of PSE7 was 7 July and that was before the last upgrade. Any fix will have to come from MS.

My suggestion is to use this to upgrade to the latest PSE - I should because 7 does not read the raw files from my camera.

I had PSE 7 fail to load correctly after some recent Windows 10 / Office 2007 security updates. The main symptom was the editor screen not rendering it's menus.

After messing around trying to uninstall the updates I found a better solution.

I have the software running under Win 7 compatability mode.

Thanks for the suggestion; unfortunately it still does not draw the menus. The toolboxes are rendered better and it does not crash. Windows compatibility wizard suggested Vista mode, but that is no better - nor is XP.

I've also had problems with no window appearing and that was down to these registry keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\7.0\

+ AppWindowPosition

+ AppWindowMaximised

Maximised gets set randomly (best to be 0)

Position sometimes goes off screen - even when it was closed from and on-screen position. My suggestion is to set this to [1,1,1000,600) - this should be OK for most setups.
