Answers

  • No, CS3 is not even supported on Windows8. By definition is not compatible.

    But you can try in compatibility mode "Windows 7" when running PS CS3.

  • Hi,

    As Nathanael said, Photoshop CS3 is not incompatible with Windows 10 at all.

    If you want to sue PS product, Photoshop CC 2014 can be used as a substitute.

    Hope my clarification is clear.

  • Although the installation comes up with some errors that look really daunting CS3 works just fine under Windows 10, most of the time.  You may have to do a few strange work-arounds during the install, manually find some files using your best friend Google (the files are generally somewhere on your computer, just not where the installer is looking for them , but don't let anyone tell you that just because your software is old you can't use it anymore.  I just removed Adobe Reader DC in favor of Acrobat 8 because Reader DC is a completely useless pile of bloat.
