Windows 7 Compatibility


Boy Zone

Likes # 0

I'm in the process of getting a new PC, but it comes with Windows 7.
It seems all my software Adobe suite such as Premiere CS3, Photoshop CS3 and Dreamweaver CS3 and Nero 7 are not compatibile.

Is there a way around this for those thinking of getting a new PC?
I need a new PC and have been told that some new PC's don't have any drivers for XP.
I like the idea of a new PC with a new system but what about thoses who have spent large sums of money buying their s/w?

You could go for Windows 7 Pro as this has XP compatibility mode. click here

I shouldn't worry too much about compatibility. I have installed around 50 software packages on my Windows 7 Home Premium with no problems at all. I use Photoshop Elements 5 and Adobe Contribute CS3 (similar to some of your products). I didn't need to use compatibility mode either.

Remember to deactivate your adobe products on your old PC before transferring them, or you will get a 'Too Many Activations' message.
