hi


have a problem, i have been trying to install Photoshop 6.0 onto XP Home Edition, but it will not install. I got it to install on Vista without problems.


So....this is what i do:


#1 - insert photoshop CD

#2 - welcome screen - click next

#3 - menu screen - click install photoshop 6.0

that's it nothing happens from there on.

so i tried another method - explor the photoshop CD - go tot he photoshop 6.0 filder and click on the setup.exe file - nothing happens - when i go into the ctrl+alt+delete and processes tab the setup.exe shows up in there so i have no idea what is going on.


I had no problems installing Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional and Adobe PageMaker 7.0 on XP Home.


Any ideas????

it is a fresh install of XP (well factory restore).

My only thought is that something else needs to be installed or running before installing Photoshop. I have version 6 on my computer, OS Windows XP Home, and I remember there were several installation disks that had to be used in the proper order. Note that have the creative suite, but I didn't install it all. Depending on what component I want to install, I have to first insert the correct initial CD then go to the one with the part I want to install. It's been so long though, that I do not remember the order, and my disks are hiding right now.

It might be that you need to use the first disk you used when installing Adobe 6 Professional before you can install Photoshop.

i have all standalone products not the suite. Everything has own box.

I have Acrobat 6 professional installed, PageMaker 7 installed.

I created another user account to see what happens, well, this new user account also being administrator sucessfully installed Photoshop 6, deleted the account and have the original and works perfectly.

Now next problem, Illustrator 10, i have no idea on what is going on, but it tells me the serial number is wrong, so i did a bit of researching over the net and came up with:

tuning the year back to 2001 will let you install illustrator 10, so did that, but when you change the clock back to 2008 it won't run, what the hell is wrong with that? is there a patch or something or is it just just a bug? i really want this program.

The last program to install is InDesign 2 i'll get to that once the illustrator problem is sorted.

Thanks for posting about the workaround Izzy. This certainly had me scratching my head. My one thought concerning Illustrator is perhaps that version isn't supported any more and thus the need for turning back the clock. I'm glad the other programs installed properly.
