How do I load Illustrator 8.0 on Windows 7 64 bit system?

Dec 1, 2012 9:47 AM

I just bought a new Dell Desktop that has Windows 7  64 bit operating system.


My old version of Illustrator 8.0 at Set Up will not load ?


Is there a work around for 64 bit ?

    If you have Windows 7 64-bit Pro (or upgrade to it) you can install a copy of XP Pro, make sure it is updated to service pack 3 and *maybe* get Illy 8 to install when running the virtualized XP. And then run it from XP. Emphasis is on the word "maybe."


    Probably time to upgrade the software just like you did the new computer.


    Take care, Mike
