It has loaded up & running into my PC running Vista 64bits When I go to download a win 32 repair I keep downloading PC repair file which I don't need as I have had my Laptop 24hrs

I have never heard of Adobe Elements CS5. I have Adobe Photoshop CS5 on one PC (W7) and Adobe Elements 10 on another. Are you talking of Elements5? That may be too old for W7.

Yes it is Adobe Photoshop Elements CS5

Sorry but I still cannot find ELEMENTSCS5. Are you quite sure the word elemnts is combined with CS5 as I cannot find any references on the Adobe forum. Can you have another look on the box?CS is usually only on the full version of Photoshop.

I think the OP means Photoshop Elements 5. Windows 7 won't accept anything below version 7.

Exactly, which is what I suspected in my 1.17pm post, but he still persisted with CS5 wording.


If it is Photoshop Elements 5 (not CS5) it does not work in W7. You will need to buy Photoshop Elements 10. If you want a freebie, try see:
