Don't give up. You may have to train it a bit. Try right click "troubleshoot" then apply settings. See what that does. My 5.0 runs really well. Did you get popups asking for missing dll's?

yes I did and I added the missing dll to the photoshop folder. The program starts without asking for missing dll's but as soon as I start using the lasso tool and really working in the program, it start crashing on me every 10 to 15 minutes into my work.

Why not use it inside of a virtual machine running a OS from the stone ages? Probably can use VirtualPC or VirtualBox both free.

Tried what you said

I tried what you said by copying a working model of Adobe Photoshop 4.0 from my XP Pro system. I copied the folder to a portable drive and copied the folder to the x86 folder on the Win 7 system. Attempting to launch program only gives me a popup that says "There is not enough memory (RAM) to launch Photoshop."

I have 16 Gb installed and 8Gb available. I tried editing the Photos40.ini file but some permission issue came up.

Thanks in advance for any help, here.

Windows 7, 32 bit
 
 

With the knowledge gained in these posts, I bought a new windows 7, 32 bit laptop comfortable that I could install my copy of photoshop 4.0. I saved all of the files to a flash drive, but then kept trying to locate an x86 folder which in Windows 7 does not appear in the programs on the computer. I discovered that with the 32 bit system the folder for "all programs" is in effect the x86 folder. I copied all of the photoshop files there in a folder I called photoshop and when I found the installation file, it installed perfectly with no further efforts needed. I am extremely pleased and thank all those before me who have shared there wisdom.
