Photoshop 6.0 crash in Win XP
Mar 7, 2002

My friend just reinstalled her trusty Photoshop 6.0 on her new laptop which runs Windows XP. In the first couple of tries of the program it made the "uncrashable" XP crash several times, typically when resizing pics, etc. The computer crashed completely, and restarted automatically, going through the checking procedure.

I tried defining the scratch disks in PS (originally the four disks were defined "Startup disk", "None", "None", "None"). Now they are "D:", "D:", "D:", "None". I also raised the memory usage from 50% to 75%.

Let's see if PS 6 works better now...

Anyway, do any of you out there know of any compatibility issues regarding PS 6.0 and Win XP, or do you havfe some ideas as to why the computer crashed?


The system specs for the laptop are:
Sony Vaio
AMD Duron 1 GHz
256 MB ram --- Freycinet
