  • Hi,
     
    As I known, you may have to wait for the information about the compatibility of the Adobe Photoshop Elements 7. You can upgrade to Adobe Photoshop 8 which is completely compatible with Windows 7. You can check the compatibility here. Check event viewer for the error message, for this click on start menu type Event Viewer and press Enter.
     
    Please also understand that third party software has its own way to program codes and call corresponding system resources when installing and running. Therefore, it is recommended
    contacting Adobe directly as FelixKer said to confirm whether Windows 7 is fully supported by Photoshop 7.

  • I agree with Team Zigzag. Photoshop 7 is too old to be used with Windows 7. Some, as Team Zigzag says, works but not in all cases. And as Photoshop 7 reached its end of life, it's better to go with the latest version supported.

    Nowadays, Adobe offers Photoshop even as a part of suite with other productive applications and even as a cloud service. These products are certified by Adobe to be compatible with Windows 7.

  • You should try the Adobe Community before seeking help here. It's more likely that the problem lies with the software. 

    P.S If the software is a licensed copy, feel free to contact Adobe regarding your problem.

    Officially, Photoshop 6 and 7 are compatible with Windows 7, but neither is supported by Adobe. In practice, they work for some and not for others. Only Photoshop CS4 and CS5 are supported.
