Can anyone tell me why I can't install Adobe Photoshop 3.0 with Windows Vista?

April 6, 2008 7:43am CST
This is just one of the many problems I encoutered since I acquired PC and use Windows Vista. There are many softwares that I can't install like Adobe Photoshop 3.0. It says in the software kit that it's Windows 2000/XP compatible, so i assume that since Windows Vista is a newer and latest version of operating system, it won't be a problem uploading this. But it wasn't installed to my PC. Why? Do I need to wait for the upgraded version of Adobe Photoshop for it to be compatible with Windows Vista? I am thinking to revert back to Windows XP.

Unfortunately vista only supports Vista compatible programs so please check for the Vista sticker of compatibility. Johnny123

that would be nice if you bought the software after buying the computer. I was forced to buy a new computer as my xp os computer crashed. I am unable to install Pagemaker 7.0 and there are no upgrades avaiable. Computers are sold exclusively with the vista os. Checking the compatablility is useless today. M fink

Vista will not support alot of older programs and hardware at this time(MAYBE in the future, but don't hold your breath!) I doubt Adobe has an update available to make it work, but you could check. Most likely your only option will be to update it to the latest version :(
