I got it to work in v7.02 by doing this: 1 - Start Paint Shop Pro. 2 - Go into "Help\About Paint Shop Pro...". 3 - Hold down "Right-Shift" & "Right-Control". 4 - Double-Click the "Jasc Software" logo at the "top-left" of the about screen. 5 - While still holding down the "right" shift & control keys, type "jascsoftware" (no quotes). You should now see the about screen change to the "Atomic Dog holding the Cat in its mouth".

The picture in v7.02 DOES have something to do with Adobe. It's the infamous "Atomic Dog" from v6.0 holding the cat from PhotoShop in its teeth! If you've seen both easter eggs before, this one is really quite funny.

Finally got it to work. It mildly gave me the creeps when it suddenly appeared. An eerie picture indeed. In a creepy sort of way.
