When i attempt to install Photoshop CC, everything is fine until the installation stage.

It asks for my photoshop cc account information, and I type that in. Then I agree to the terms, and it shows Caution, Phootshop CC cannot be installed on Windows XP.

Is there a solution? Maybe to switch wine to windows 7?

 

Thanks

Photoshop CC is not compatible with Windows XP:

We also do not have an installer that supports Photoshop CC, but if you wanted to change the Windows version, you can do this from Configure -> select virtual drive -> Wine tab -> Wine Configuration -> Windows version

Who is "IT"? "IT" doesn't matter here. You are not giving me very much info to work with...

How are you trying to install it? Manual install or using the Install Window (If you go to PlayOnLinux -> Install ->

search for "photoshop cs6" -> Install it will start an installer.)? When it asks you to choose the installer for photoshop, choose your CC installer, and follow all of the instructions. There is not an installer for photoshop CC, just CS6. You need to use the installer, but I cannot say that it will work. If you do it from the Install window, it is already set to Windows 7. If you need to set it to Windows 7 manually, I already told you above how to do it. 

If that doesn't work, then you need to either use Photoshop CS6 for the POL Installer, or do a manual install. If you need more info, please read:

I didnt really understand what you said above.

 

This is what I am doing.

Install > Search photoshop CS6 > Select Install File > Next > From here it asks me to login to my photoshop account which I do > Error Cannot Install on Windows XP

This means the default is set to Windows XP, and that I can only change it after it installs, but to install it i need windows 7. Is there a way to make it Windows 7 default? Or can i configure it in the setup process? 

 

If i create the drive first, can I install photoshop on it afterwards?

OH. OK. I am sorry. I see what you are saying now. I just changed the script. Please close POL and try to install it again. It should be set up correctly for you.

Hi,

windows xp is rather old for photoshop. so i recommend you upgrade your OS and Download Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Full Version
