>Original photoshop met most needs very well. Lost it during numerous windows 10 "upgrades"
Two ideas that MAY work to install and/or run old programs in Windows 10
-RIGHT click the program icon or EXE and select a compatibility mode in the pop up option window
-or Run as Administrator http://forums.adobe.com/thread/969395 to assign FULL Windows permissions may help... says Encore, but sometimes required for ALL Adobe programs (this is NOT the same as using an Administrator account)
But, the above doesn't work for all old programs... you don't mention your version, so may not help
thanks for reply. no expert on these matters, so doubt I'd manage to follow up on your suggestions. just wondered what was so bad about the comment that it was rejected. Original photoshop met most needs very well. So did Movavi. Both were arbitrarily deleted during MS updates.Cloud apps are just too complicated. Interactive instructional videos might be a better idea, instead of watching a pro moving the arrow all over the place. watched a few of those vids several times. Just doesn't work for me.
You should be able to install your perpetual version of Photoshop using your Installation media and serial number. Old version CS2 and CS3 need new installer downloads. If you can not activate you Perpetual Photoshop Version you may require assistance from Adobe Customer support. However, if you did not format your disk you activation cridentuals should still be one your Disk....
IMO if you have a perpetual Phptoshop version CS3 or older you may be better off using a new version of Photoshop Elements it cost less than 100USD.
In regards to a comment being rejected, as a Moderator, I can see rejected post, and don't see one here. The post that you originally posted to was old, so we often will branch the discussion if the thread is very old, or if the topic strays from what was originally posted.
