Question about Adobe Photoshop 7.0 for PC
I have been using photoshop 5.5 for years. All of a sudden it won't open or allow me to re-install (the setup file won't run). It gets as far as the blank (black) photoshop window but no further (no drop down menus etc). The install won't even start. I tried getting a copy of version 6 from a friend but it won't install either. I have established that it is not my VET firewall causing this so there must be some other conflict going on. My computer is operating with windows 2000 service pack 4. Its an Intel Core 2 CPU 6600 @2.4 GHz 2,100,00 KB RAM Any help would be appreciated.
I have similar problem. I could not solve it for a month. Today I google the problem and land in this forum. After reading a couple of solutions, I realized that it must be a conflict with another image program in my laptop. So I remember exactly that the issue started to happen after I install HP wireless printer with image software. So I went ahead to uninstall the HP printer totally. And then restarted windows. Then install the Photoshop 5.5.
Everything becomes normal !!!

This would probably from a corrupted Installation. Try Uninstalling your product first then reboot your system. Retry installing from your installer afterwards. If this does not fix your problem let me know.

To get photoshop 6.0 to install on an XP machine, I found that
I needed to copy the CD contents to the local hard drive. Then I set
Adobe Photoshop 6\setup.exe compatibility mode to windows 98.
From windows explorer (start->explore), right click setup.exe ->
properties -> compatibility. Then run setup.exe. Running Autoplay.exe
did not work even with both Autoplay.exe and setup.exe set to
windows98 compatibility mode.

For me the problem is because you have more in one program like Scanner Photosmart or programs to make Funny Pictures ,you have to take off thats programs and install Photoshop Alone and after reinstall the rest of the programs

This just worked for me. I should say that after I installed a new DVD player with Nero essentials v7, my Adobe Photoshop 5.5 hung up without the drop down windows working. Also when I tried to shut down the computer, I would get a message that my "WMS.Idle" was not responding. I went on-line and found this posted solution:
Click Start--> Programs--> Nero (v7, v7 essentials, v8) --> Tools--> Nero Scout.
This opens Nero Scout Options window.
On the left hand column, click Indexing--> Folders.
Then at the bottom click Clear All.
Then click Apply.
At the top left hand corner of the window uncheck the box where it says Unable Nero Scout.
Then click Apply.
Then click Ok.
This solved my EMS Idle not responding problem. I then tried Adobe and it worked just find again. Looks like one solution solved two problems. If that helps anyone else, great. It worked for me!

I had the exact same problem and nothing would work until I removed a recent install of Nero Essentials that I got with an external DVD drive. Then immediately Photoshop was responsive again.
