Yes, the software does need a key. If you have the box, try checking the manuals. On the front and back covers, and just inside the front and back as well. It could also be on the box, located somewhere.

Why camera says one moment and does not seem to want to recognize computer

Most brands of cameras deliver a CD with the camera, containing software, needed to backup, transfer and work with the pictures you shot, to a computer.
Most of the time there is software is for both, Windows and MAC.
Before you connect the camera to any computer, you should install the software. The disk also has the drivers for the old operating systems.
If you lost the CD, or just don't know where it is right now, you can go to the site of your camera brand and try to download the software you need. For that look under support.
If your camera is old, and the brand does not exist anymore, try a freeware picture transfer / editing software pack. Like Gimp or Adobe Photoshop elements.
Just connecting a camera to a computer causes two things. The camera shuts down, and the computer won't recognise the camera. So nothing works.
If you can't get software form your brand, you always can install other generic software like Ulead, Pixir, BeFunkey, Gimp, Photoshop express. Or if that is not possible you could install an external memory card reader and download the pictures via de memory card reader.

I have Photoshop CS3 on two PCs, abandoning one and wish to install PS CS3 on a Mac, replacing 2d pc. Can I do this and keep PS3 also on the PC? Same question for Lightroom and the Bridge. Can I share...

No you cannot, because it is not supported when you uninstall it. If you visit What you might want to do is just download another version on it. Copy it onto a flash drive or CD. And then just place into the other PC.

Also you can share digital files between the PC and your Mac, but not programs, because programs are Server-Side installed. So the only way to share a program is to copy the files(Install Files) from one PC to the Mac, and it should work.

I cannot install the full version of adobe photoshop CS2

Hi! I myself use adobe photo shop CS2. you might do these steps Go to the files where you have save your photo shop download. if you have your CD, you can just put in in the CD ROM - wait for the CD ROM to read it. - open file folder if there is. - Click auto run if there is. If you where able to perform the three indented steps, that's nice because the system will just let you wait for a few moments. They might ask you for some CD keys. Just fill up the dialogue boxes with the right information so that the installation will be completed. You will be ask also to register your photo shop its not register yet.

Does Hijaak Pro version 5 run on Windows 7 64-bit? I was running it fine on XP Pro SP2 (I believe). I have now installed it on my new laptop the newer OS and it fails to let me open any files...saying...

I installed it today on my system - Windows 7 Pro 64-bit operating system. It installed and took a while, but I didn't select the CAD drawing part to install; I just selected the Hijaak part to install to get screen clips. That part installed, and works, but differently than on XP. You can't change the option for the key to get the clip, so it is Ctrl/Shift/C. Then a white screen comes up (wish it didn't). If you know about where it was you wanted to clip from the picture you were seeing, you can select it using your choice that was set up before the clip - rectangle, window, screen, free selection, star, etc.. On the white screen make your "blind" selection and then it clips from the picture you were viewing. Then you can paste this into a MS Word or Photoshop. If that white screen didn't come up covering your picture, it would work fine -- don't know how you could get rid of that. In Photoshop the layers show the background as total white and then your clip as the 2nd layer and it has the white outside the selected area, which can be inverted to delete that white background. If anyone knows a work-around to not have that white screen cover up what you want to see - that would be great!

Also in the Windows Pro 7 64-bit you can choose to install Windows XP SP3 from the MS site and work with your old programs that way. I haven't tried this.

CD lost Issue

Not without the CD. PC's need the software to be able to install programs. If you had an Apple, you could simply copy the program from one computer to the other, but PC's require the software be installed from its original source.
