Windows 7 & Photoshop CS4
are there any issues?

 5:40 pm on Aug 5, 2010 (gmt 0)

We are considering upgrading the workstations that do our photography work. We have a copy of Photoshop CS4 and would like to continue using it.

However, I am concerned that if we put it on a new machine that will be running Windows 7 that there could be issues.

Has anybody tried it and is it working fine?

I haven't heard anything. I am running cs3 on Windows 7 and it is fine.

The issue you may run into will come in activating the new installation.

If you only have a single user license then you will have to load up your current CS4 and deactivate that installation.

Adobe tracks software activations online so if you have no more 'activations' then simply installing it and trying to activate it will fail unless you deactivate the 1 you are using.

They will allow you to activate it over the phone in person. I had to do that when a computer died and it wasn't possible to 'deactivate' the software. When I called and explained to customer service they added an activation to my account.

Thanks for the deactivation information.
