Problems with windows 7
Marty Price, Photographer

->> Looking for a little help here, has anyone else had problems with windows 7 and earlier versions of photoshop? My daughter has the CS-2 Suite and when she upgraded her operating system to Windows 7 it will not let her launch photoshop or any of the other applications within the suite. She gets a "not licensed for this computer" prompt. So I tried loading my PS CS and everything went fine but most of the buttons have lost functionality. Is this because she put it on top of an existing Windows XP operating system? Thanks in advance for any input!

->> Marty, it looks like CS2 is officially not compatible with Windows 7. However a quick Google search turns up numerous work-arounds and tips from people who have managed to get it working.

->> yes, my daughter upgraded from XP to 7. Evidently this caused the problem, she should have upgraded to Vista then upgraded to 7. Skipping Vista causes problems. Kevin, thanks- I'll try those links and see if I can get it fixed.

->> Two questions... First, when you say you "upgraded" from XP to Windows 7, don't you mean it was a complete installation, meaning "Drive C" was completely re-done, with a fresh installation of Windows? If so, it shouldn't matter whether you used to have XP or Vista. As far as I know, it's only if you have Vista that you then get a choice of a full installation, or a simpler "upgrade" which doesn't remove all your old files. So, if you upgraded from XP to 7, this should not cause any problems.

Second, you don't say which version of Windows 7 you went with, 32-bit or 64-bit. That might be why it works for some people, and not for others?

->> I believe that Michael may be on to something. When I migrated to my current 64 bit version of Windows I was forced to upgrade my Dreamweaver version. The older version would not play nice within the new OS... There was a workaround but things were still buggy from time to time.

->> Upgrading from XP or Vista to 7 can cause lots of problems. You are better off wiping the drive clean and installing a fresh copy ...
