Apart form the many apparent issues with AAM and my solution of uninstalling all app and using cleaner tool, I have only been able to reinstall my apps via installing trial and licensing with CC ID I still cannot update any of my installed apps all fail to update.
However my specific quetsion here is, would it be expected the 3D men to show (having read many strins on this) with the following graphics card;
NVIDIA GeForce GS driver version 301.42, 512 MB, directx support 9.0c
OS windows XP, 32 bit SP3
The 3d menu does not show though PS recognises the graphics card and I have checked the use graphics card.
I tried installing on a laptop with windows vista 32 bit with Upto 358MB Mobile Intel Graphic media accelerator X3100, this shows the 3D menu but all the actions are greyed out.
I have tried to install on an HP laptop windows 8, with intel (R) hd graphics, though AAM doesn't work here either, so using download assistant to try and download PS trial and license wit CC ID, only to have communication error 100 check your internet connection, though I know I am connected to the inernet.
Is the 3D menu likely to work on this laptop? if I can get it downloaded.
From the discussions I see this may be a licensing issue, I waited 45 mins on phone support (from NZ) yesterday and finally gave up, any feedback would be appeciated, I think adobe really needs to address the obvious AAM problems or the CC is only becoming a very frutrating experience, thankfully I am only using it to learn new skills, not learning much with all the downtime trying to fix problems though. I would hate to be trying to meet deadlines in a real business.
Given that 3 newer versions of Windows have been released, it may be time to consider an upgrade for your XP system. I'm not sure I'd suggest Windows 8 though.
By the way, the system requirements are listed here:
In my opinion the phrasing "Some GPU-enabled features are not supported on Windows XP" might be a bit too terse and non-descriptive, considering almost the entire difference between Photoshop Standard and Extended is "not supported on Windows XP".
I have been wanting to upgrade to windows 7, but really don't think it is worth it for my XP PC as it is 8 - 9 years old and have had some glitches, I upgraded the HD to 1 TB, still the odd glitch the tech thinks it is the mother board on its way out.
Thanks for the feed back though. The 3d repousse etc worked in PS 5.5, though very glitchy.
Well guess what PS ext 3D menu blanked out on the other Laptop, HP envy 6, OS windows 8, 8GB ram, 3rd gen intel i7, intel HD 400 graphis controller, with radeon HD 7670M, 2 GB graphics card. I would think this would be upto the mark, I had just upgraded the Radeon driver. Doesn't make sense to me.
Yes it was a bit baffling to me that there was 2 didn't realise until mucking about, it is my sons laptop.
However just tried 32bit version of PS and 3D menu fully accessable and recognised radeon in preferences, no recognition in 64 bit ver.
I am happy now that I can have a play with 3d, if my son lets me back on as I stuffed up his tecchit world by disabling his hamachi server.
PS have set high perfomance grsaphics for PS.
