Installing two different versions of Photoshop on one PC

    I wanted to know if it's possible to install two versions of Photoshop on my computer. I want an old school 7.0 and the latest CS5 running concurrently. Is this possible? Thanks.

    Lol just out of curiosity, why have 3 different versions of the same software? I use cs4 but is it because PS7 has features that the newer ones don't or...?

    Haha, I see. Yeah every time Photoshop comes out with a new version, I tell myself I am not going to upgrade, and before you know it I'm upgrading :p

    Do you have to install them on different drives? I know many programs remove an older version when you install a new version. Does this happen with PShop, or can you just install a new version normally? THanks.

    i have Photoshop Elements 3, PS CS2, and PS CS4 in my desktop PC and no problem at all.
    but of course you can open one version only at a time.

    I run also different versions. I can also open only one version of photoshop at the same time.
