    Windows 8 compatibility

    I have Adobe Creative Suite CS4 32 bit
    Does anyone one if it will be compatible to use on Windows 8 64 bit?

    Reason I ask is that CS4 does everything I want so don't want to upgrade as this software is so very expensive to buy here in the UK.
    You also have to buy the whole suite and I only use 4 modules of the suite anyway - Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Fireworks & Flash.

    All help much apreciated

    Probably, but Windows 8 hasn't been released yet, and you aren't obliged to upgrade even if it were. Why don't you wait till it is before worrying?

    Thanks - But the reason I ask is that at the end of the year I will be purchasing a new PC and this will then have W8 installed.

    To the best of my knowledge there are no known compatibility issues between Win 7 and Win 8. You shouldn't have any problems running software designed for Windows 7.
    Unless otherwise stated, any code posted is most likely untested and may contain syntax errors.
    My posts, comments, code, and suggestions reflect only my personal views.

    Many times it happens actually that format which works excellent in one version of windows generally creates trouble in another version which is most probably an upgraded version, for example C++ , a person can try in its beta or trial version but it will be known more clearly when the OS gets launched in October this year.

    I'm running the release preview of Windows 8 and so far all my software except for one or two open source software projects are working just fine. And I've had no issues with Adobe software. So I'm pretty sure you don't need to worry about any compatibility issues

    Does anyone know how the Windows 8 development process handles ARM and Intel compatibility? Is this handled by the SDK or will developers have to code two separate apps?

    It should work however I am more concerned with Windows 8 itself...have they released a beta version yet. Going off Window previous record of good, bad, good, bad Windows 8 will be a big disappointment - I hope I am wrong though.

    You can download a free beta version of Windows 8. Just either test it on another computer, or partition your hard drive and dual boot it. Then you can test everything.

    Before install this software and to know with Windows 8 compatibility, its recommended for you to check it first software requirement in your CD cover.

    I no longer seem to have the CD cover only the case - i don't know what happened to it

    Also bought in 2008 it would not have mentioned Windows 8 as even Windows 7 hadn't been released then.
    The Adobe Suite is to expensive to keep updating. Especially for a lone user.
    I do not need a complete suite. I only need Dreamweaver, Flash, Fireworks & Adobe Photoshop. Now since it became Adobe you have to buy the complete suite and it's over £2,500.

    I don't need Illustrator, In Design, Bridge, Premier, Lightroom or Media Encoder

    It's my software I'm concerned about - mainly Adobe CS4 Suite & MS Office 2007. Both 32-bit.
    I know the hardware will be up to the job as it will be a new PC at Christmas

    I don't see why either of those wouldn't be compatible. I had MS Office 2007, and I currently have Adobe CS5 on my Win 7.

    My concern is compatibility on Win 8
