I retired years ago and just moved AE 6.0 (yes, that old) to a new computer running Windows 7. While I had no problems with XT Pro I now seemed to be locked into using only one screen, the one AE starts on. I can't drag the timeline to its own monitor ... any suggestions?
I wouldn't be surprised if the problem is just AE 6.0 not supported on Win 7. There could be all sorts of bugs.
One thing to try would be opening AE in compatibility mode, picking XP Pro or 2000.
What teh previous poster said. Anything below CS4 is not supported on W7. You should be glad it still runs at all, as even that is not guaranteed. try compatibility modes as suggested, otherwise you may consider installing a virtualization software and run your old XP in it and then on top of that your old AE 6...
Thanks to all ... I had tried the comp mode but as said, like me, it's so old its amazing that it still works at all :-) Looks like
major update time.
