Turns out installing photoshop 7 from the cd on a 64 bit windows is possible, but it is kind of buggy. Do a quick search on google and you will find it is a common problem. For a while I was stumped and had to live without my vintage photoshop, however I was finally able to get it to install. How I got it to work was I had to unhook all my monitors except my primary display, and then run the install program in compatibility mode (windows XP), and boom, it installed no problem. I don’t know if this will work for/help everyone, but prior to doing this the program would not install.
