I have followed the instructions, re-installed my Photoshop 7.0 three times, and when I try to inlstall the update, it cannot find Photoshiop 7. I am working in XP Pro on a laptop. I have even tried restarting my computer after installing Photoshop 7 but that didn't work either.
Any further suggestions?
Without the update, every time I try to save an image the program crashes,

Thanks for responding Jeff. Do you have any idea what 'another issue' might be? I have checked that there is sufficient space on my hard drive, but when I open certain images, the program crashes. I had assumed it was because the image was originally saved with an updated version, but a re-install (several) failed to fix this, so I tried another clean install and was then unable to install the update even with all security turned off, The program is definitely installed on this computer, but the update says it can't find it, even after I locate the folder and point to it.
Hello, If I remember correctly, Photoshop 7 could not save on disks bigger than one TB.
What version (7.xx) are you currently using? You might find it by going on help>about Photoshop (is it well Photoshop 7 and not Photoshop Elements 7?)
Also, what is the size of the document? Was it created with Ps 7?
That could explain it PECourtejoie. I honestly haven't tried using Photoshop 7 on any modern hardware even if I was still using Windows XP. Terrabyte drives were not very common during 2002 when Photoshop 7 was current.
I have moved this discussion over to the Photoshop General Discussion forum as there maybe troubleshooting steps which can performed to correct for your current installation.
You could well be correct. Wasn't PS version 7 the last one to have a limit on the size of the Scratch Disks? Seems that was 4GB, and one could split over 4 HDD's.
IIRC (I have my faulty memory), there was only one major update for version 7, and that was to 7.0.1, though there might have been minor version releases. The 7.0.1 update was fairly important for fixing some major issues.
If you are correct, then the OP's installation might not work well. One option, though not one that I like, would be to create a partition, just for PS version 7. Going back to its day, I had four, 4GB partitions on a separate HDD, just for the PS Scratch Disks.
I encountered that problem on my desktop when I installed two 1.5TB hard
drives. My solution was to partition one to use for images.
But my problem is with my laptop computer which is an HP 510 Evo Notebook
with a 50 GB HD and 36.2 GB free space. I am running Wndows XP Pro with
SP3 in NTSF.
I worked on this problem again today and here's what I did:
1. Uninstalled Photoshop 7.0.0
2. Turned off all Windows & Norton Firewalls
3. Re-installed Photoshop 7.0.0 from the original disk
4. Attempted to install PS 7.0.1 update (which I have downloaded twice now)
The installation of the update still says it cannot find Photoshop 7.0.0.
I then tried using Photoshop 7.0.0 as installed. I was successful in
printing three images before the program crashed. It locked up and I had
to reboot the computer. The images were black & white documents downloaded
from Ancestry.uk Census records, something which I do on a daily basis.
They are always under 1 MB. It was the crashing on my original
installation while attempting to save one of these images as a .tiff that
led me to re-install Photoshop 7.0.0 in the first place. Today I had no
problem saving as .tiff, but the program crashed while printing.
Perhaps the problems I am having would be solved by the installation of the
update, but I still cannot do that.
Any more suggestions?
