  Adobe Has No Plans To Make Current Products Windows Vista Compatible
Time: 00:58 EST/05:58 GMT | News Source: InformationWeek | Posted By: Kenneth van Surksum

Users of Adobe Systems' digital publishing products, including Photoshop, InDesign, and Dreamweaver, will have to shell out for new versions of the software if they want to run them without glitches on Microsoft's new Windows Vista operating system, Adobe says.

According to a statement posted on Adobe's Web site, the company "does not plan to issue updates to current versions of those products for Windows Vista compatibility."

That means users will have to pay hundreds of dollars to upgrade their Adobe software if they want trouble-free performance on Windows Vista, which is now preinstalled in virtually all new PCs shipping in the United States. That's because the current versions of most of Adobe's major products won't work properly on the new operating system.

Talk about BOHICA RUTA

What Adobe doesn't realize is this gives people a perfect opportunity (and reason) to evaluate OTHER products at this point.

Add in the inevitable anger that is present at this point and it add's up to potential lost customers.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Nuance did the same thing to me with PaperPort. PaperPort 10 was incredibly expensive ($200), and for Vista they want me to pay nearly another $200 for version 11 (10 will not be patched).

They lost me as a customer. I now just use Presto PageManager which came with my new Canon Scanner.

Try installing in XP compatibility mode.

#1: Can you blame them? With Vista, you need a new PC just to run it so why not all new apps as well? Why should Adobe miss out on the gluttony?

Didn't a certain company pose much the same argument back when.

Oh, yeah! They were Word Perfect! lol

#4, and juts as similarly, right as Microsoft kicks out Expression Web and the balance of the Expression suite - which really is quite a nice set of products - much as Word leveraged an identical opportunity years ago.

Why would you need a new PC? Vista runs fine on PC's made over the last 2-3 years. The most anyone might have to do is buy a new 50-60$ video card.

But if you did buy a new PC, it would be something like 750$ which would include a 19" or even a 22" monitor.

(Coffee girl is stil bitter his PIII-500 won't run Vista)

#9: Cute. But really, does anyone know of ANY real businesses (and not some MS sock puppet) that is running Vista for day to day business computing? Anyone? Beuller? Seems like MS is moving more SUSE Linux licenses than Vista.

#10 The fortune 500 company I work for just went to XP 2 years ago. I suspect that there are a lot of large companies like that. So I would say that you are probably right - there aren't a lot of large business implementing Vista. However, I would still guess that the rate of Vista adoption in this circle is well above that of any any Linux distro.

I would also submit that the Vista adoption numbers aren't that far behind XP after the first six months of its release. You have to remember that this is a major upgrade - companies and saavy users will probably wait until drivers are more mature and perhaps even a service pack is released.

The company I do support for is running mostly XP and even 2000,they will do testing on vista this summer but I wouldn't think they would jump on it right away thought becuase of all the 3rd party apps the end users use.we evern have AS/400 stuff people use on are network.along with citrx,lotus notes yuck.

Adobe's programmers must be incompetent. "Adobe Photoshop CS2, for instance, requires users to register the software each time it's launched on a Windows Vista PC, even if it's already been registered." Doh! Sounds like they're trying unsuccessfully to write to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, an area of the registry only writeable by administrators.

Chances are quite high that these same programs never worked on Windows 2000 or XP when running as a limited user, so it should come as no surprise that they don't work on Vista, where even admins run as limited users. Shame on Adobe for not following the Windows 2000 programming guidelines that Microsoft released SEVEN years ago.

Dunkin Doughnuts and cash registers. You fellas made me laugh tonight, all at latch@2sugar's expense. Too funny!

Yes I can. And I do. There is business, and there is being greedy assholes.

They are the latter. IMHO.

Vista is being used as an EXCUSE to bork people when no borking is really necessary.

I got the LiDE 600.

It's VERY small, compact, fast, and is powered off the USB port.

It may not satisfy the most discriminating photo expert (there are $500+ scanners for those folks) but I think it works wonderfully.

I recently had the unfortunate task of scanning in some 200 family photo's of my Nephew who died in a car accident on 1 March. It made the job as painless as it could be given the circumstances.

The photo's were put on my sisters (his Mom) PowerBook and used as a slide-show during the viewings.

And Vista software is available on the Canon site :)


#18 By 2960 ( at 3/21/2007 9:40:14 AM

Ah, so it's a copy protection/activation issue with privilages on Vista, and instead of fixing their software, they are passing the problem on to users financially.

Who says copy protection/activation doesn't hurt users.


#19 By 15406 ( at 3/21/2007 10:25:08 AM
#16: I was being facetious. I agree with you 100%. Vista is the upgrade nobody wants except retailers who are trying to get everyone to buy all new hardware and software.

However, there are other aspects to having a home based business that should be given much thought before starting a home based business.    Like any business owner, you will need to make sure you file the correct paperwork for your home based business, and that all legal obligations are fulfilled.  Many states and municipalities still require a business license even for a home based business, and you may need to run your home based business under local and federal laws. <a href="">piumini moncler</a> The Hero Impulse weighs 134 kgs which is lighter than average <a href="">Louis Vuitton Italia</a> There are numerous frequent flyer programs out there from various airline companies in the world.
