If your mac software runs fine on the mac why would you want to run it on Windows via Bootcamp? It is bound to be slower.
Licensed version are OS dependant, and Bootcamp is meant to run Windows OS programs natively. So don't think it would work. But not a mac person so may be wrong.
If you get a subscripton version it will work on either OS.
Thanks. It was just the convenience factor. Boot up on mac side edit texture, save on stick drive, boot up on pc side, test texture. Shut down. Boot up mac, edit texture. Shut down and boot up windows to test again. Add, rinse, repeat. But that would be mostly recreational use. (editing computer game textures for personal and small community use.) In all fairness I could probably get by with a much cheaper program, perhaps elements. But it takes having to learn them. I'm familiar with my CS5.
For my photo editing and all serious work, I have no problems using the mac side. And true I used pc versions of really old photoshop versions (7). And yes I got more errors on the PC version than I did on the college computers which were macs. That was long ago. I'm no longer a student. I have a licensed version of CS5 that I had paid for about 3 years ago from saving up.
