Go ahead and install. If it is not supported, you will be prompt with error.

According to this site it is compatible with Vista. And if it's compatible with Vista I assume it would also work with XP.

I think there is an option to change the compatibility mode of .exe files within their properties.

You could try that if it doesn't work on XP.

I've seen this topic discussed multiple times also.

I once had a similar question about compatibility, but with a different program.

I right clicked on the .exe file of the program and changed the compatibility to an older version of windows and it worked.

Maybe it won't be the same for you, who knows.

I just thought i'd let you know, see if it helps.

Thanks guys for your reply. I will try it. However what I am afraid of is that will it do damage to the registry or system files?
Do I need to make a system restore point before I try it?

Don't worry about messing up your registry. If it does not support then you can jolly well revert the installation halfway through.

There are no issues between PS 6.0 or 6.01 (you should upgrade to 6.01 as it fixes issues) and Windows XP SP2. I have it at home and at work and have had zero issues with it ever. I have run PS 6.01 on an old HP with 256Mb ram and a 1.73 ghz processor running WinXP SP2, and have run PS 6.01 on a custom built machine with a P4 3.06 with HT, 2Gb ram running Windows XP SP2.

As a matter of fact, I was using Photoshop 6.01 on Windows XP SP2 earlier this morning! :thumbsup:

War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.
