    CS4 and Windows 7 64-bit

    jayae0607

      I have CS4 Design Premium and am looking at buying a new computer that will have Windows 7 64-bit.  My problem is that I can't seem to get a straight answer about whether or not it's compatible.

       

      I called Adobe support and asked him directly and he said no, CS4 will not work on Windows 7 64-bit.  After a little more digging I suspect that he was doing what sales people do and was trying to up-sell me to CS5.  I'd rather not do that if I can avoid it, a new computer is expensive enough by itself.  I searched these forums 10 or 12 pages deep and I've seen a few threads about this very thing, some people are having trouble here and there and others got it resolved and it's working fine.

       

      Seeing that some people got it working gives me hope, but I don't want to go through a troubleshooting nightmare either.

       

      Can someone here set the record straight please?

       

      I appreciate any help I can get

       

      Thanks,
