New install of V10 on fresh WIN XP 64 bit will not run. Ran fine on old 32bit OS. I've tried every possible combination under illustrator.exe advanced properties regarding compatibility mode & can get this to fire. Install went fine, just can't boot. I get a quick adobe image flash & then crashes. My Photoshop 7.0 that I bought at the same time runs fine. Anyway to get this software running without upgrading? I need to edit some old machine manuals. Thanks, Mike
Run a manual Windows Update with custom options and make sure to include MS Visual C (MSVC) runtime 6 through 8. I'm not sure which one it was, but AI 10 requires a specific DLL of one of them. There's no harm installing all, so give it a spin.
