I previously had PageMaker 6.5 Plus, and Photoshop 6.0 loaded on my computer. Around Christmas I had to have the hard drive reformatted and have today tried to reload these and NOTHING happens. I've tried just listing files and doing it that way but again nothing happens. Any suggestions? :tazz:

Yes other cds will load with no problem. When I open the files on the disk and try loading that way it still doesn't work. But I did get this error off of clicking on one of the icons. Doesn anyone know what this is and how I can correct the problem if this is one. I'm not real savy on these things.

Windows cannot open this file

To open this file windows needs to know what program created it. Windows can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select from a list of programs on your computer

I chose use the web service to automatically look it up. It took me to http://shell.windows...dir.asp?Ext=lib

I don't know what to do at this point.

Some how I've managed to get Photoshop to load now all I need is to get PageMaker 6.5 Plus. It now starts the loading process, gets 20% thru then gives me the following error.

An error occurred during process of copying or decompressing files

and above that error the following is stated:

Decompressing files info C:\windows\shellnew
pagemaker.p65

any advice? :tazz:
