What are the system specs for the laptop?
Dell Inspiron 1520, Windows Vista Home Premium, 32 bit, Intel R Core TM 2 Duo CPU T5450 @1.66B GHz 2 GB Ram Memory
CC requires Windows 7 SP1 or later. Without that you won’t even see CC as a choice to install.
Additionally, even with Win 7, that machine is horribly underpowered and would give you very little in the way of satisfaction.
Time for a new machine.
Thanks, no surprise there, just hopin' might get lucky...over and out...Chuck
