Vista

I need instructions for installing Elements5 Hidden Tools in Windows Vista.

Old instructions didn't work.

Re: Vista

1. I don't have Elements or HPPE 5 myself. I'm wondering if Vista is specifically mentioned anywhere in the HPPE 5 instructions/documentation? If not it could mean it's flat out incompatible. I did a little web surfing with Google... no hits anywhere on a fix.

2. Found this: http://www.hiddenelements.com/elemen...uirements.html

If it was (or could be made to be) Vista compatible, I would expect this page would have been updated by now.

If anyone can do this, however, I'd bet the farm on Richard's ability in this regard.

Angry Re: Vista

I have been waiting an answer for 5 five months. :-(

The author , Lynch, doesn't seem to read this site at all.

Sometimes, 3-4 months ago he replied to one of my messages, but didn't answer my original question. :-(

I've lost my hope.

Goodbye. :-(

Re: Installing Hidden Tools in Vista

I'll try once again, if Mr. Lynch happens to see this:

I have Elements 5 and Windows Vista Home Premium.

I cannot install Hidden Tools.

Install program makes all the directories and copies files into them. But I cannot find them in Elements.

Re: Vista

Sorry for not getting around here more, the forum changed, my notifications stopped, and I was very very busy with many projects. The upshot: I didn't come by as I thought no one was asking questions. I am hoping that problem has been fixed.

I have not had the opportunity to explore Vista, as I am not one to make a quick entry into new operating systems. The question has come up before, and I will likely either need to make an additional installer or provide manual options. The current installer will allow you to get the files, and all you need to know is where to put them. I may have the opportunity to check out a vista machine today, and I'll try and give the installation a whirl--who knows it may get me going on finishing up the tools for the post-vista releases!

Thanks for the question and coming back...please forgive the delay!

Re: Vista

Thanks, that's helpful. I actually finally had some time to explore yesterday and not only made actions, but got them installed as categorically Hidden Power. Seems I'll be trying to catch up now ;-)

I checked your link, but it was for ELE 6.0.

Those directories do not exist in 5.0. :-(

Re: Vista

In 5.0 it would seem the paths either have to be for vista or Windows XP...so it would be:

Vista:
C:\ProgramData\Adobe\PhotoshopElements\5.0\PhotoCreations\ImageEffects

Windows XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\special effects

Simply changing the paths does NOT guarantee that add-ons will work reliably and correctly. There are also fundamental differences in functionality between Elements 3, 4, 5, and 6 which may need to be addressed before things function at all.

I would be glad to work with those that have ideas but no idea how to implement them. I have tried before and several times it has worked against me...but I am convinced that two sets of hands can do so much more than one. But I hope, at least, that my one will be able to catch up now that I've had time to do some research.

Re: Vista

I think there's a mistake:
Vista:
C:\ProgramData\Adobe\PhotoshopElements\5.0\PhotoCreations\ImageEffects

Originally there is two directories:

C:\ProgramData\Adobe\PhotoshopElements 5.0\
C:\ProgramData\Adobe\PhotoshopElements\5\

I made a path
C:\ProgramData\Adobe\PhotoshopElements\5.0\PhotoCreations\ImageEffects and copied HIddenTools files there, but it didn't work.

As Richard said, there must be another place, where directories must be found. Maybe Vista's register?
