    Adobe Photoshop CS2 - Incompatible with W10?


    I tried to install my trusty CS2 into W10 in a VM but it didn't want to play, CS3 on the other hand installed without a hitch. I was just wondering if anyone had successfully installed CS2 in W10 yet? Or even tried?

    Well, I just installed the free copy I got.. it's no longer maintained by Photoshop so they're giving it away. It's CS2 ver 9.0 and it installed and works just fine, for me at least.

    I'll have to try again, maybe it's the VM environment that's affecting it somehow. Thanks for doing that Jeff, at least I know my old trusty piece of software will work for me on RTM.

    Hi there

    CS2 works fine in a VM too --It's now "Abandonware" so you can se it as a "Freebie". Incidentally if you don't need all the modern bells and whistles and don't need the latest camera RAW support you can still keep .PSD format -- use your camera software to get RAW onto say TIFF and then you can use photoshop CS2 even on Uncompressed images.

    90% of what most people use (or even 99%) probably is sufficient in CS2.

    Works OK in build 10061 too.

    Cheers

    How did you do it with the files downloaded from Adobe?


    I'm having severe problems with the files downloaded from Adobe. First, the directories they have setup to unpack the files are different names (when it ask for disk 2 it can't find the rest of the install using the directories they insert). I think I got around that, but still installs nothing, just like it did from the original disks which couldn't verify and said my 30 days was up and had to be verified before I could use it.
    I've tried using multiple compatibility modes to no avail, shared components is all that seems to install.
    I'm wondering if the original install that said it couldn't be used until it was verified is somehow getting in the way by having left something in the registry?
    Hate not having restore as it had before, especially on a laptop where I've had to have the "file history" drive disconnected, so I can only go back I guess to the last time it was connected, which was 2 months ago.
    Thinking of using registry editor to eliminate all references to CS2
