Premiere Elements runs pretty buggily on a 64-bit XP machine, Alan, since it's a 32-bit application.
But you may be able to get it running by doing so in 32-bit emulation mode (assuming you've got 2 gigs of RAM and at least 50 gigs of free, defragmented hard drive space) if you've got the latest firmware, drivers and Quicktime.
Yes quicktime is essetial, get the latest and then load PRE, should work.
I am surprised that such a reputable company such as Adobe does not have Premier Elements 7 totally 64 bit comapatible. Has anyone heard if this is in the making? I know that you can run it in 32 bit mode, with some additional tweeks, but I am a little bit weary on purchasing it. I have 4 gigs of memory and lots of HDD space. Is it worth it, or should I wait?
As a rule, software companies never share their future development plans -- but I'd say mainstream 64-bit software is at least a generation away. So maybe next time around. Or the next.
But, as any IT specialist will tell you, an investment in a 64-bit operating system is an investment in the future, not the present. (And that's not just true for Adobe software.)
