    How do I uninstall PS 7 without a functional installer?

    flynpeach

      Since I installed Mac 10.5.8 my PS 7 will not funtion, and an error message pops up that says it cannot be used. I purchased PSE 10 to update photoshop and it says there is not enough memory to install it.  I figured if I ununstalled PS 7 that should free up enough memory, but don't know the correct way to do it. Thanks!

          Is that the case where the newer systems can no longer run PowerPC code in emulation mode?  Or some other issue?  I'm not familiar with the Mac release nomenclature, as I am a PC guy.

           

          If the former...

           

          You *could* get a time machine (no, not the software from Apple, a real one), go back to a time when Photoshop 7 would run, do your Photoshop 7 uninstall in Rosetta or whatever, and return to the present.  Conceptually, just 4 simple steps.

           

          Honestly, I don't know what you're supposed to do.  I suppose someone might be able to suggest the folders and/or files you'll need to delete.  Photoshop 7 pre-dates the Creative Suite Cleaner Tool.

           

          Seems a bit cheeky on Apple's part to make your perfectly good software - already installed on your system - unable to be run any longer.  Okay, more than a bit.
