CS6 and Vista

Will Photoshop CS6 run on Windows Vista 32 bit?

All references I can find only refer to XP SP3 or Windows 7.

If you can point me to where this is specified, that would be even better.

Thanks,

    Photoshop is not officially supported on Windows Vista, but in many cases it will run on it.

     

    The system requirements are posted on this site: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/photoshopcs6/

    Make sure you're working with Vista SP3, it won't install on Vista sp1 or 2.

    Give it a try with the beta.

    You're right, There is no Vista SP3.. My mistake!

     

    I meant to say, Photoshop won't install on Vista (no SP), and SP1... SP2 you CAN install on, though not necessarily supported or tested.
