Ist PSE 7 download not supported anymore?

Feb 19, 2012 5:57 AM

Hello to all forum members.


I use PSE 7 and PE 7 for 3 Years under Windows Vista.

I got a new PC running on Win7 and I would like to transfer both applications.


The plan was to download the applications as a test version, deactivate the versions on my old PC and re-activate them on my new one.


But for downloads of test version I'm always referred to Version 10.

I really would like to stick to Version 7. I'm used to it and it fits my porposes just fine.


Has anyone any idea, where I could download the Installation files?

I didn't them store 3 years ago, I assumed for that purchas price,the will be stored for members @ the adobe server for longer than 3 years ...


If anyone can give me advice, it will be most appreciated.


I'm writing to the forum, because in my attempt to contact the adobe service via e-mail I got utterly lost.

I have the impression, that's discouraged by adobe if not downright impossible.

    You may be able to buy a used copy on eBay or Amazon. But Adobe is not going to offer downloads of a three-year-old program. Sorry.

    Nope, I don't speak for Adobe. I'm just saying -- you don't see Apple offering downloads of Mac OS9 or Microsoft offering downloads of Office XP either.


    With such good, new product out there -- particularly software that's optimized to work on Windows 7 -- why would you expect them to offer free downloads of software that's three generations old?


    Besides, don't you have your original installation discs?

    When you download software, especially large software that you paid for, you should always write the download files to a CD or DVD

    If you look down the list I made in All the links for PRE 9, 8 and 7, v7 is still available from an external source.

    For earlier downloads of many Adobe programs, if one logs into their account (not the forums account, which will most likely be different), then their registered/purchased programs should show up. For the download, there might still be URL's available. If not, I would contact Adobe Customer Support (not Technical Support), and inquire about those old download links.


    As others have mentioned, when I download a program, I do Copy those download files, just in case. However, with Adobe programs, I cannot recall the last time that I bought a download - I always buy the media, but that is just me.


    Good luck, and hope that your download links ARE still available.
