I just got a new laptop, which I bought because the price was great and it had descrete VRAM -256, which is almost impossible to get unless you want to spend $2000 or more for a laptop.
I thought to then downgrade to xp, but quickly found out about the trouble people ran into that had tried it. I know something about osses, but do not have that much hands on experience. So have decided to stay with vista.
I have vista ultimate 64-bit edition, and I would like to install adobe cs2 and studio8. I have had problems finding out if these are vista 64-bit compatible, or if it will screw up the os if I tried to install them.
I checked with adobe and the only info I was able to find, was that some people had problems and some had not. There was no indication if vista 64 would have problems, as I think both suites are 32-bit. I thought that was one of the most useless statements that I have ever read. On top of that it is impossible to find practical help with vista, as everyone seems to be on a slow learning curve and needless to say microsoft is practically useless for help. What info they have seems to deal with only the 32-bit versions, which in my case is no help.
So can anyone tell me if it is OK to install either one or both?
