Virtual PC is a very easy to use and effective program. With it , you will be able to use xp and 7 simultaneously .
You are start virtual x within 7, and while using seven , you can use xp ... as xp is a program installed in 7.

5, wow. The oldest copy I've got is 7. No help here just strolling down memory lane. I still remember Ps 1 and Aldus Pagemaker like it was yesterday....

Photoshop 5 has a 16 bit installer which won't run in Win7.
As already stated you can try the virtual Xp
or
Hack/Slash method, if you have access to an OS with PS5, copy the Programs Adobe folder and drop it in Win7 Program files (x86). Some folks have had some success with this, but it won't save your preferences and mostly won't read .gif & .png.

I know it sucks, but the 16 bit installer is tripping this up.
Hope you get it working!

Thanks for the background info on this, Sanvean! tnickle73, let us know if that solution works for you, if you haven't already decided on XP Mode.

Cheers,

OK, so I installed the virtual machine and installed Adobe without issue.

Here's my problem. I have everything laid out working on Win 7. I dont want to have to make a copy of several folders so Adobe can see them - one copy in Win 7 and one copy for the virtual Win xp. There must be a way to set the permissions on the folders so both can see/use it.

What VM client are you using?

You can 'share' a folder on the 'host' machine that has has read/write access from within the VM.

NVM - I found how to do it.
Thank you gentlemen for the help. Much appreciated.

Photoshop 5 in Windows 7

Photoshop 5 will run in Vitual XP mode but with some severe limitations. The amount of memory that is available in XP mode is very limited (measured in MB not GB). I have only been able to use the virtual drive C: for a sratch disk (unable to access RAID 0 volume) and some of my Photoshop files are very large (over 1 GB) I cannot even open these at all!
