Maybe this is a dumb question, but has anybody here ever tried installing Photoshop 5.5 on the Vista OS? Did it work?

Yes I have it installed, and i've experienced no problems. But I am a light user.
I use it for fun, and for slight editing. Nothing more than that.

I've just realised you quoted version 5.5! That's quite old that version is it not?

I am not sure about Photoshop 5.5 as that is a pretty old version, but I can confirm that Photoshop CS2 does work great in Vista. Photoshop CS3 is the first version to have official support for Vista.

Works fine under XP (yeah, I'm still using 5.5), I would guess that you could run it under Vista using XP compatibility mode if needed.

Greetings all,

Thank you all very much for your replies. I went ahead and took the gamble. Purchased a Toshiba laptop and it installed 5.5 without a hitch. 5.5 is an old version of the Windows 98 2nd edition era. I knew it worked with XP but wasn't sure about Vista

What are the chances of getting you to burn a copy of Photoshop 5.5 and send it to me? I don't need the license key for yours, I have my own but some jerk stole my disk and I need to re-install it on my computer. I am lost without my favorite editing software. I will pay what you need, I just need the disk.

In a land far, far away a long, long time ago Photoshop had version 1 and it started from there. 5.5 was a Win 98 app so that gives you some idea how old it is. I have been using Photoshop professionally since the early 90's and I had version 1.2 at the time. 5.5 was the version that I liked the best and still do. The newer versions added stuff that I do not need or want to use so I just stuck with 5.5. The problem is that some jerk stole my install disk and I need to re-install it.
