If I upgrade to 64 bit Win 7 will I still be able to use my Studio 8 software from 2005?

Recommended Posts

You might try searching the net for Macromedia Studio 8 Windows 7 and you will find a few links on this. From what I read so far is that Studio 8 seems to have issues with the new OS but nothing was really clear because there isn't much to go on.

 

One thing for sure is that you can run Studio 8 using XP mode.

Thanks, I didn't know about XP mode.

 

I do a bit of gaming from time to time. Im not sure if any of these will work on XP mode.

 

Infact most of the software I have and own is 64 bit. Im wondering is Win 7 64 bit the right direction for me at all?

 

Im wondering if I should just stick with XP :blink:

Moving up to W7 is your call. I'm still on XP and probably will be until it's time to get a new computer. Reason being is that W7 has taken away a few features that I find quite useful and time saving. (organizing start menu, task bar, etc)

 

It's just too bad that W7 did not provide a setting to allow you to revert to XP classic mode layout just like they did for XP when they provided that same kind of functionallity for those that upgraded from Windows 95/98.

 

New technoligies are great but not everyone can adapt quickly especially when you been using the old versions for several years. Biggest plus about W7 though is that you can add more RAM when using 64 bit:W7 Memory Limit. This is useful for those gamers, programmers and developers. However, it's also dependent on the motherboards to handle the RAM. Look to more and more motherboards to go beyond the 8mb/16mb limits. I believe right now the newest boards supports at least 24mb of RAM.

Yeah the only two reasons I want to go W7 is

 

1- I really like the auto back up system and

2 - The facility to have more than 3.3 gig of RAM as imposed by 32 bit systems. (I can fit 8 gig to my mobo but only 3.3 will be recognised unless I go 64 bit. But then I worry none of my software will work properly.)

 

Think ill just stick with what ive got. Seems its going to be a hassle moving up and im not sure 8 gig of RAM will actually do anything for me just yet. Most games and PC apps will run fine of 3 gig. I suppose in the coming years it will be this that forces me over to 64 bit.
