There is no error message during install. When attempting to run photoshop a (not responding) message appears at the top of the screen and everything is 'greyed out'.
I have the disc. It is Serif Photoplus 11 studio pack (I think I said Photoshop earlier) sorry!
Photoplus 11 still (bot responding)
Error 21/09/2014 08.13.20, Application Hang;
Event 903, Security-SPP.
Hope this means more to you than it does to me!
It is Photoplus 11 and yes the icon is on the deaktop
You are a Diamond!! However I opted for xp service pack 2 as it seems to offer a better compatibility.
Thanks for your help.
