I was just wondering if anyone has tried installing Master Collection CS3 on Windows 8 to see if it works or not? I know there will be no official support, just wondering what experiences people have had? The applications I'm most interested in are Photoshop and Premiere. Thanks in advance!
Thanks guys! I'm not going to try it yet - halfway through a project so now wouldn't be such a smart time for me to try experimenting - not sure when the release candidate expires but I'd like to test this before it does, so I know whether to buy Windows 8 as soon as it's available for pre-order.
Well, despite saying I wasn't going to try it yet, I ended up partitioning my drive and installing Windows 8, and then CS3.
Initially Windows 8 was pretty stable and the CS3 discs (collection, acrobat 9 upgrade, onlocation) all installed with no problems. However shortly after the whole OS has turned very flaky and keeps freezing so at this moment I don't think my test is all that conclusive - I don't believe the flakiness is down to the Adobe software however something is certainly causing issues.
When it came to removing the software, the Acrobat 9 uninstaller work, OnLocation didn't (neither will it open) and the other programs had problems deactivating, detailers here: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1031179
Just a quick update as I've not really had the time to play with this, however I deleted the Preview and instaled the Windows 8 Enterprise versions which is available as a demo from Microsoft.
More info when I get time to play around with it some more :-)
