Because. No. Maybe.
It works with xp64 but it's not supported. Vista 64 is what the program is optimized for. I have Windows 7 64 as test OS and it works perfect so far. Right now if I'm doing an After Effects project I'll do it in Win 7 64 because it is faster. Hands down.
I know there's a lot of hate for Vista but XP is going the way of Windows 2000. I know some people hate that but technology is what it is. I wouldn't be surprised if there is no support for xp when CS5 comes.
Actually I kinda wish 32 OS would die off so 64bit will become more widely supported.
I dont work for adobe nor have inside information on this. But I see no reason why adobe would support XP64. It has no future. Windows 7 is highly likely since its based on vista64.
Vista has a horrible reputation but it it largely based on the terrible Vista32. Vista 64 on appropriate HW runs very well.
And; I agree with Josh on 32OS. Get it over with and make future apps 64 only.
The CS5 suite needs to be entirely 64 bit native. It's time Adobe forced the OS upgrade just like Lucas forced theater sound system upgrades if they wanted to show Star Wars.
I hate Sony but I have to give them props for best free update ever when they released Vegas 8.1 (true 64 bit for free)

ALTHOUGH I will say this...it IS still Vegas, and so it's not worth much more than free to begin with (IMHO).
It's like having a really nice engine on a car with no wheels. Or transmission. Or brakes. Or windows.
