    Illustrator vs. Vista?

    OldIllustrator

      I have been unsuccessful in installing my old Illustrator 9 with my new computer with Vista.  Is it an Adobe issue?  Windows issue?  My own issues?  Is there a solution?  Thanks much!

          Well.... Ai9 is a ~1999 app. Vista is a 2008 OS.

           

          There are many applications made in the 90s that don't run on modern operating systems.

           

          I would say it's a "problem" specifically. Basically you're trying to run ancient stuff on modern architecture. Time to upgrade Illustrator.

            I think there's a compatibility mode issue... try right clicking on the exe file and in properties opt for the "run in 32bit compatibility mode" or some such... i don't have Vista so i can't be more specific.

             

            Hope it points you in the rght direction at least...
