Adobe current-gen software won't get Vista compatibility

Posted on Wednesday, Mar 21 2007 @ 09:15 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Adobe published a statement on its website that its current software family will not be patched to gain full Windows Vista compatibility.

Users of Windows Vista will need to wait for future releases if they want software that works flawlessly.

The only piece of software that will get a patch is the free Adobe Acrobat 8 Reader.
All Adobe products available as of January 30, 2007 were released before Windows Vista became publicly available and so have not been fully designed for or tested on this new operating system. However, many of those products run under Window Vista with minimal issues.

They seem to run ok by many accounts. And frankly if you are a Photoshop user you understand the usual "upgrade costs" that Adobe gets you for every time.

And Elements 6.0 isn't going to be so horridly expensive that you wouldn't buy it, so really this isn't a big worry.

The worry is WHEN they'll have an Elements 6.0 for Vista 32/64.
