PHOTOSHOP 7 JAMS FS2002

Recommended Posts

Guest

It started yesterday. I am stuck on FS2002 after installing Photoshop 7.The following message pops up when I startup FS2002.http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3e44c1de7a72369e.jpgUninstalling PSD7 also did not help. What is the meaning of this statement and how do I proceed?Thanks.Dr. Jinesh ThomasResident in Internal MedicineGauhati Medical CollegeINDIA.

You might have a problem with DirectX. I installed PS7 and did not have this problem, so it isn't necessarily caused by PS7 per se. However, during the installation, one of the DirectX components may have been corrupted or over-written. My suggestion is to start off by running directx diagnostic (dxdiag.exe). If it doesn't diagnose the problem (and even if it does), you may need to reinstall/update DirectX. Go to the MS site for the latest version.Another possibility is you video card drivers. Try reinstalling them. They (or on of their components) may have been corrupted during the PS7 install.

Thanks for your reply Ken. Shall try it out tonight when I reach home.Is it because hardware accelerator was somehow turned off by Photoshop 7? What is the method to find out the settings for hardware accelerator in my computer Windows 98 Operating system?Thanks.Jinesh.

Press START, Run, Type dxdiag, OK. Let DirectX Diagnostic stabilize, select the Display Tab, Check DirectDraw and Direct 3D in the middle of the page, enable (if possible), test each using the test buttons, exit directx diagnostic.Start fs2002 to the menu page, select settings, Display, Hardware tab, and enable the Hardware Acceleration checkbox, OK, and return to FS2002 menu and proceed.

SUCCESS AND THANKS A MILLION!!! :-) KEN and SEIFFERT!!! That was cool.I just re-installed Direct X 8. Then I started fs2002 to the menu page, selected settings, Display, Hardware tab, and enabled the Hardware Acceleration checkbox which was lying dead after I had installed PSD 7 for the first time. The check box was also lying dead after I removed PSD 7. It was kind of funny, since how much ever I tried to check the box after my first installation of PSD7 proved futile. Probably reinstallation of DX 8 did the trick. The hardware acceleration checkbox just sprang to life.Thanks very much again! :-)Dr. Jinesh ThomasResident in Internal MedicineGauhati Medical CollegeINDIA.
