I have been asking several questions on Apple Support recently about PS 7.0 which has stopped loading ever since I installed a new Epson Artisan 837 Printer. PS 7 will open in Classic OS 9 ONLY. Your last question was about the twain files:

I installed Easy Find and found 4 files:



com.apple.TWAINBridge.plist Location is ./Library/Preferences



EPSON TWAIN Prefs 25 ./Library/Preferences/EPSON/PFB5



org.twain.dsm.plist ,/Library/Preferences



org.twain.dsm.plist ./Library/Safe Preferences




I also spoke to "tech support" at Epson and they blame adobe photoshop for the problem as the printer will print.

I confirmed that the driver I have loaded (8.61) is the correct driver for this printer.



I also discovered the 3 year warranty that ofc max sold me DOES NOT SUPPORT MACS so I am leaning towards packing up this beautiful printer that just will not work with Adobe PS 7.0..............unless you have another suggestion.........I like the printer if it would work with PS!

Can PS 7 work in OS X?

What printer will work with PS 7 and OS X?

If you can't print from PhotoShop directly, try printing to file to make a PDF. Then drag the PDF to the Printer's Icon (sometimes in Library/Printers/...) sometimes somewhere else.

If I'm understanding the problem correctly, Photoshop 7 stopped working in OS X after installing the Epson drivers, and now you need some way to print from Photoshop in Classic, or some way to run PS 7 and print in the native OS X environment?

Or more explicitly: acceptable solutions would might be either
a) making PS 7 work on OS X again and getting a printer that both would not break it and would print, or
b) setting up printing so it would work reliably with PS 7 in Classic?

What version of OS X are you running?
