Premier CS5 requires Windows 7 64bit. I
t will not run on XP . Check out the system requirements on the Adobe website.
This portative comp have (but with my new portative comp ACER (with Windows 7 and 64 bit) it not worked out, too):
System: Microsoft Windows XP
Service Pack 3
Intel(R) Celeron(R) M
1.29 GHz, 1.23 GB of RAM
Intel(R) Extreme Graphics 2 for mobile
Voice playback and recording default device:
SoundMAX Digital Audio
Here are some requirements: Adobe Forums: System requirements for CS5
The question resembles: I need to haul a 40 ton truck uphill on a steep slope. Can I use my granny's 50 year old bicycle to do that???
Same whas, when I installed Premiere Pro CS5 on my new portative comp ACER (with Windows 7 and 64 bit and much of GigaBites). CS4 there saksesfully was installed.
There is a difference between INSTALLING the software and USING it.

I suggest that the previous post should be recreated as a FAQ topic.
"How to give more information for someone to help"
Already there. Look for 'How to get help quickly' in the Help section.
Sorry, I should have been more specific.
I was suggesting adding it as a topic in the FAQ Drop-Down List at the top of the forum page.
