    Hi
    I have been using Photoshop for years and am happy with CS2. My computer died a death and I lost all my data etc including Photoshop, which I could not deactivate.

    I now want to install it on a laptop using Windows 7. I have asked Adobe and have been told their Chat support will take me through the steps. Basically I need to know how to unlock the product in order to obtain a challenge code. After some 4 hrs we are getting nowhere and ! feel this is a ploy to have me buy the latest version!............

    Is there anyone out there who is using Photoshop CS2 with Windows 7? Did they have a problem or was the install straightforward?

    Grateful for any comments.

    Is the problem with Windows 7 or just the act of reinstalling Photoshop on a different computer? Perhaps you're mis-framing the issue which is leading you down the wrong path.

    I am running Photoshop CS2 on my Windows 7 laptop and had no issues with installing it whatsoever.

    Many thanks for the 2 replies.

    Question for Cheesball81

    When you installed did the instsallation carry on from the insertion of the serial number or did you have to contact Adobe ?

    This is as far as I can go because I then have to get a challenge code from Adobe and it's like trying to get blood from a stone.

    It carried on from the serial number.
