    I installed photoshop 7 but it cannot run. There is an error like this: Could Not Initialize Photoshop because of a program error. I tried to reinstall it up to 10 times. Also tried rebooting my computer and removing older versions but nothing happened. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance...

    Was it a retail upgrade? If so, did you do anything to the previous version before you tried to install?

    It's a full version...hm how do we call this? Not an upgrade, the other thing. I removed version 6.0 and everything which had to do with photoshop (folders, registry entries, etc.). But i still get this error...

    Try removing it again and clean the registry of it. Install it again, see what happens.

    One question. You already had an older version and you bought a full version of PS7? Are you sure it is not an upgrade? Not trying to be smart, just making sure.

    YEs I'm sure its not an upgrade. I already unistalled it for 5+ times and cleaned the registry and everything which had to do with the program. The weird is that i installed it at another pc which also had photoshop 6 and works fine (this pc has Windows 98). So the problem is somewhere in Xp.

    To be honest, I don't reckon Photoshop 7 is as polished as Photoshop 6 and ther are still a few issues that need to be worked out with it.

    I have Photoshop 7.0 retail installed in XP with out any problems. I have version 5 and 6 installed and left them in for now. I wanted to test Photoshop 7 before deleting the others. I suspect you have a problem with your CD. Call Adobe and they will fix any problem for you. This Photoshop software is their "baby" and they support it like no other program!

    I guess you didn't see what I 've written. I installed it at a pc with Windows 98 and works fine... so the problem is not on the cd

    It works fine here, but my last installation it didn't bizarre! Adobe Acrobat did the same thing, but after formatting they worked fine, tho I am not suggesting that you do that...

    yeah i had that problem on xp also. but mine was a full version that someone had taken the time release out of which didnt do it very well. so i had a very smart guy to help me after i had had my limit of the bs. so to fix the error i just changed the date on my computer. don't know why the hacker couldnt remove it correctly ;) . But any how that was my problem and the error didnt say anything about time expiration.
