I understand thas the newest version of InDesign that can open PM files is CS6, but results can be from excellent to unusable. And that the last Wndows to support PM is Win 98.
As part of you subscription you can install CS6 which is the latest
version of InDesign that can open PM6, P65, and PMD files.
Thank you. It's good to know I can download CS6 with my subscription. I have a small custom concert recording business, and have CD covers dating back to 1997 that I have to pull from archive on occasion. A friend with CS6 has been converting needed files for me, but now I'll be able to do it. PM7.01 did work well for me for me on a Windows XP computer and also Window 7 pro computer (although it would crash on exit) and Adobe listed in their 7.01 patch in 2002 that it would run on Windows NT4 and 2000 ( http://www.adobe.com/support/pdfs/pm7_0_1fixes.pdf )
Thanks to both of you!
Thanks: Adobe does state support for Windows XP, with their 7.01a patch which I ran for a long time: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=2426 .
Minimum system requirements:
Adobe PageMaker 7.0.1 (International English, Universal English) running on Microsoftﾮ Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows NTﾮ 4.0 with Service Pack 5 or Service Pack 6, Windows 2000 Professional, or Windows XPﾮ.
If I were you, I would buy an old second hand portable with Windows 98, install PM there, and work those old files directly in PM.
