I just purchased Lightroom 5 and in my efforts to download I received a message indicating I need Windows 7 or newer. I have Vista. What do I have to do now and why is this requirement listed in the material requirements?
why is this requirement listed in the material requirements?
It is listed in the Tech Specs
No Vista mentioned. Not supported.
Hi Dot, you can check the tech specs here: http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-lightroom/tech-specs.html
Yes I've just been caught too. Paid for and downloaded the upgrade from 4 to 5 only to find the pop up message half way through installing. No mention during purchase process. Strange thing is that I installed and used the beta version last April and had no problem with it. Very anoyed they no longer support Vista which I am quite happy with. Do I really have to buy Windows 7 or even a new computer to run LR5? Can we persuade Adobe to un-block it for Vista even if they don't support it as it clearly works fine (on the beta version)?
