    Illustrator 8 and upgrade


      I have a full version of illustrator 8. Can I upgrade to Illustrator 10 with an upgrade? What OS do you need for Illustrator 8? Having problems reloading my software after replacing my hard drive. What OS do you need for Illustrator 10?


      Thank you!

          The current version is 14, also known as CS4 when part of a suite. You cannot buy earlier versions from Adobe. It is only possible to buy older versions legally that have not been used as a basis for an upgrade.


          8 and 10 should know work at least from 95 up to XP on a Win machine; I am not sure about Vista. I know nothing about the Mac OS versions.

            On a Mac, AI8 will work in Classic mode up to at least 10.3.9 or maybe 10.4.11. AI10 will work in OSX up to 10.4.11. Do a search on the Apple site to confirm the last installation of OSX with Classic for a better idea.
