Premiere Pro & Windows 8

Jun 1, 2013 10:19 PM

Does Premiere Pro work with Windows 8? I'm having some major issues. When I first installed Premiere Pro I got this warning message:

"DirectX cannot be run on this version of Windows. This version of Windows is either Windows3.s or a version of Windows NT that does not support this version of DirectX. Please do not attempt to install DirectX except in these operation systems. ctX is designed to work with Windows 95 or later and Windows NT4.0 and later only. This error message can also occur if the computer hardware is incompatible with this version of DirectX"


It then gave me the option of continuing anyway. When I finally got Pre Pro installed when I started it I got this error message:


"The Currently installed soundcard driver does not support Direct Sound Input. Recording Audio is not possible"


About my computer. It's brand spanking new. Pre Pro is the first program I have installed on the system. I called the store that built the computer. They took remote access to it and installed a different sound card driver. That "apparently" took care of the sound card problem. However when I try to capture video I get this error


"can't find capture inpoint"


I've combed multiple forums and such and no one really seems to know what's going on. I've tried all the solutions I've come across and nothing seems to work. So now I'm wondering if Premiere Pro & Windows 8 are even really compatible.

Thanks in Advance.

    I installed Premiere Pro CS6 from the Creative Cloud on the Windows 8 touchscreen laptop I keep in my camera bag. It installed without any issues.

    There have been a few messages about Win8 problems (I've seen more of those in the PreElements forum) and a few more saying Win8 works just fine... so it MAY be your hardware


    Details please... Information FAQ

    I've had CS6 running fine on Win 8 for 10 months or so.  I've never seen that DirectX error message.  What graphics card are you using?

    I'm running the Original version of Premiere Pro that came out in 2003.


    Ah, you're in the wrong forum.  This is for CS5, 5.5 and 6.


    The best solution is probably to update your software.  Things have changed plenty since 2003.
