Windows 7: Photoshop CS3 Addon Problem

Photoshop CS3 Addon Problem

Hi People,

Well, Photoshop CS3 working without problems so I started to copy over a lot of brushes and effects I used previously with Windows XP. But Photoshop dont shows them in the menu, I get the feeling Photoshop cant find all the addons but I dont know why, all the files are in the correct folders so the problem has to be elsewhere, I double and tripple checked all of the files.

Anyone got a hint or a idea about that?

cheers Faxe

Hi Faxe,

I would personally check the security permissions on the files that you have transferred over from XP, If you give the "Everyone" group full control that should allow you to see and manipulate them from within, and external to, CS2

Dependent on exactly where they are placed you may need to take ownership of the files before you can assign rights

Youre right, I not copied over from XP but I copied with Total Commander so the permissions not flagged correct. I copied all files again with the explorer and everything works fine, thx dude.
