I have CS2 and years ago used Photoshop and InDesign for making books. I would like to use it again for the same purpose.
Will it work on either (or both) Windows 7pro and/or Windows 8?
My computer died and I need a new one. If my older programs won't work at all on Windows 7 pro or Windows 8; then I would like to shift to Apple computer.
However if they will still work on the newer operating systems (either 7 pro or 8) then I would buy a PC so I could use my CS2 still.
I appreciate any ideas, opinions or experiences that can help me to decide which computer would help me best.
Restating; if they won't work on the newer PCs then I'll get an Mac. If they will work on newer PC then I'll get a PC.
Can’t give you more than maybe. Certainly not supported but you might get lucky.
It sure has hell won’t work on a Mac.
I believe I have CS2 running on my Win7 Pro x64 desktop system (might be through the XP mode virtual machine, though), but I can't recall the last time I tried to use it.
That said, your old installers will not work because the CS2 activation servers have long since been shut down. See Adobe - CS2 Downloads
