I want to install the font Helvetica Neue under Windows 7 in Photoshop 7. In Word, it works fine, but not in Photoshop. Even after booting the pc and several opening / closing photoshop. What can that be? (I have the PFB and PFM files)

Photoshop 7 is not designed to work in Windows 7. Frankly, I'm surprised you got it to install at all. Photoshop 7 came out around the same time as Windows XP. Strange behavior is par for the course in this kind of set up. We would strongly recommend upgrading to the latest version. CS4 is the first version to be natively supported on Windows 7.

I've been using Photoshop 7 with Windows 7 (64 bits) for more than two years now and it works just fine. The only problem I had was that it wouldnt open in fullscreen mode at first, and even though I dont remember just how I solved this issue I remember it being really easy once I searched for solutions on the web. I still use it more or less every single day without any problems what so ever.
