I'm running Windows XP (Media Center Edition) and tried to download my AE software which arrived today. I got a message saying my computer need to be 64 bit. Forgive me as I'm "technically challenged" ! Can you please advise me as to what I should do and how?
My computer is a Dell XPS 720, with Intel Quad CPU
Q6600 @2.40 GHZ
2.50 GB of Ram
Sorry, all greek to me! Any advice would be so much appreciated.
If you buy After Effects CS5.5 and Premiere Pro CS5.5 as part of Adobe's Production Premium suite, you get the CS4 versions free, which will run on 32-bit computers like XP.
(However they don't come with the standalone products - so unless you upgrade your system, you may need to return that and get the suite edition instead.)
Hope this helps!
