You mean Photoshop version 5.0 from 1998?
What do you mean by workable? Which operating system?
Do you even have a copy of this software?
The short answer is probably going to be no.
Yes, it is from 1998, and yes I have the cd. My op system is Windows 10.
All I can suggest is that you try it. It's highly unlikely to install or run.
If it does work then good luck to you.
The software is so old and outdated that there will be no support if you run into problems with it.
OK, thanks for responding. No it will not install. 32 instead of 64 something?
Suggest you forget about version 5.0. It belongs to the 20th century.
Consider buying a modern version which is tested and confirmed by Adobe to run on Windows 10.
If you don't want to subscribe to the full version of Photoshop then you could consider buying Photoshop Elements 2018 outright.
