CS2 and Windows 7

By sperciavalle ·
Tags: Off Topic
A little over a year ago I bought a new computer which came with Windows 7. I had no problem loading my Adobe Creative Suite 2 onto the system - it worked great until we got a virus. This virus wiped out all my pictures which were on an external harddrive and messed up a few programs including CS2. I understand that CS2 & Windows 7 are not compatible however they worked together pre-virus. Now I can't get the program loaded - I know there must be a way. Adobe customer service will not help with anything prior to CS4 and purchasing/upgrading is not an option (financial hardship) right now. Can anyone give me some tips on how to get this back on my system?
Thank you ~

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer". .

As I have no Direct Experience with this Since it worked previously I would say Install 7 again and then when it has all drivers loaded try to install CS2 before going to the Windows Update Servers and updating 7.
