Yes.

and much faster. :)

You will likely need to run the updates from Adobe if it's an old version of 6. Not sure on that. But it will run. I am still running a copy of 6 on one of my XP Pro machines. I also run 7 and CS3.

I have never tried 6 on Vista but I would think it should run fine.

If I can't find my original CD and password, can I copy and paste my existing photoshop 6 from my old computer and transfer it directly to the new computer without the original photoshop CD?

Shouldn't need any updates. I have a very old version of 6 running on my new Vista laptop, and my firewall doesn't allow the computer to speak with Adobe. ;)

You will likely need a program like Norton Ghost to make that work. I'll leave that question to someone with experience doing it. That's not me.

Adobe requires CD's for all installs. They're pretty dialed in and strict on that.

You shouldn't need a "password", you'll just need the serial number of the version. Write it down from the start screen on the old computer, and enter it when asked during the install on the new computer.....I think that'll work.... :)sphss

I THINK you can copy all the Adobe files in the programs folder onto a CD, and put them in the programs folder on the new computer. There should be an .exe file in there or some sort of install file. It'll handle it from there....just have that sn handy when you run it.

I just had to go back to 6 from CS3. My Vista machine was only happy with CS3 until I installed GoLive....I still think it'll work, but I haven't played with it for a while. I can get by on 6, but I miss a few things about CS3.
