I have Photoshop 4 Limited Edition that I know and works well for me on Windows XP.
Problem is my new computer is Windows 7 and the programmedisc won't load telling me there is a known problem.
But all the links to the Adobe website don't provide a suitable answer I can understand.
I cannot figure how to solve it!
Anyone got an answer?
You might look at photoshop elements 10 which runs fine on windows 7 and will do more than photoshop 4LE.
Adobe offers a fully functional 30 day trial so you can see if it fits the bill.
Are you using the 32 or 64 bit version of windows 7?
Doesn't it use a 16 bit installer which won't work on the 64 bit version of windows 7?
(when i say won't work, there are ways to install old versions of adobe products, but if one is not computer savory, it can be a hassle)
Besides fedupwith this is talking about photoshop 4 LE and not the full photoshop 4 version, (photoshop 4 LE was quite limited in those days) and in my
opinion is not worth all the hoops one might need to do to get it to work on windows 7 and photoshop elements 10 is so much better than photoshop 4 LE.
There is also the possibility that fedupwith this has a hard drive bigger than 1 tb.
That being said if you are willing to walk fedupwith this through all the necessary steps, i have no problem with that.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit and a 500gb drive and there is nothing difficult in installing all of Photoshops exept version 3 on this Operating System.Photoshop 4 is the only one to be put on the root drive.I have version 4.01,5.5,6.01,7.03.CS and upwards installed.The older ones are there for fun and believe me anything I have had to do in CS4 could have been done on version 4 but would just have taken longer to do
Then that's the diiference. It's not so easy to install older programs that use 16 bit installers on the 64 bit version of windows 7.
The 16 bit installers will run on 32 bit versions of windows but not on the 64 bit versions of windows 7.
Oh, the joys of a 64 bit system if one needs/wants older programs.
