:tazz: I have Windows XP and a Sony Viao computer. For 3 years I have used Photoshop 5.0 almost on a daily basis. Recently it stopped working. I could only get an Adobe Photoshop window with just a blank screen and a message saying that the program was not responding.

Tried everything I could think of and then decided to uninstall and reinstall and it will not reinstall. I get the button to click Install Photoshop 5.0 but nothing happens.

The software must be OK because I loaded it on our other older computer (with Windows 2000) last night and it installed just fine. BUT the scanner, printer, Web cam are hooked up to newer Windows XP computer. I also download my digital camera images to this computer.

Is there anything I can do about this?

First, start the install and leave.

Windows has issues with older versions of InstallShield and sometimes it will eventually start up if you just leave it long enough---if you try to start it more than once, you end up with multiple instances of setup, and then nothing works.

Literally, start it, take a walk or go to bed, watch a tv show, come back in several hours.
