Thank you! Sorry about misposting.
Not a problem... forum headings are not always clear... DO provide computer details when you go to the "previous" forum
[Moved to CS4 and Earlier.]
[As nothing new was provided yet, I've deleted the other thread.]
I'll try and keep this short -- I just bought a new computer. I own an old disk of Premiere Pro 1.5. When I tried to activate the software, I found out I couldn't. I wrote technical support and they said CS2 apps were no longer supported and that I needed to down Premiere Pro 2.0 from their site. I downloaded it and plugged in the serial number I was given and I started to see the application open and then it would just stop and nothing else would happen. I click on the .exe file and I see the opening screen for just a second and then it goes away.
Can somebody help me?
Premiere 2 will only run as expected on a XP machine.
As you bought a new computer you must be running W7 or 8.
Since the other message was deleted, I will add what I said in that message
PPro before CS5 NEEDS to be run in compatibility mode with Windows 7, which means right click the program icon and select WinXP compatibility mode from the popup
If you have Win7 64bit PRO or higher, try Microsoft's Virtual XP
This is only ONE example of using Virtual XP http://forums.adobe.com/thread/702693
Also, you need to provide hardware and software DETAILS... such as Windows version and graphics adapter brand/model and driver version
