I cannot load my old Photoshop CS Ver.8 on my new Win 7 OS without it telling me it's a trial disc.

Dec 9, 2012 11:02 AM

I am trying to install an old Photoshop CS Ver.8 on my new Windows 7 Home Premium OS but it tells me it's a trial Version??  It installs perfectly and works fine but informs me it is good for only 29 more days??  I bought this program new years ago.  I have installed earlier versions incase it needs previous DLL's but that didn't help.  Any ideas???  I can't find any company contact numbers...

    Did you enter your serial number when installing and activate photoshop cs?

    Wouldn't matter.  Experience has shown that they won't be willing to help you get Photoshop CS working on a modern OS.  They'll just say it's incompatible and that you need to buy a new license.

     

    R_Kelly has hit on the right concept, I believe.

    There are lots of threads on similar questions of licencing.  Google it and see which one fits your situation.  Usually has to do with permission levels.

    Do you have UAC enabled on that system?  It may be that there is an incompatibility between UAC and the manipulations of system-level files the licensing facility needs to do.

     

    Have you tried running it As Administrator?
