Almost certainly not. You probaly won't get an answer any more specific than that - few people will even remember MX much less have tried to install such ancient software on Win 8.

I was wondering the same thing and can confirm that Fireworks MX 2004 does work on Win8 64bit. I'm pretty relieved since I cannot offered an upgrate.

I'm using Windows8 x64.

The Fireworks.exe of MX 2004 needs Compatibility setting.

right click Fireworks.exe in File explorer

-> click Property

-> open "Compatibility" tab

-> check "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"

-> select mode as "Windows XP (Service Pack 3)"

-> (in case of some behavior, check "Run this program as an administrator" )

I confirmed that the FwMX2k4 boots in this way.

(but not confirmed on all extentions.)

Disregard the correct answer--maybe.

Seeing that you're using Windows 8, you can just set the Compatibility Mode to Windows XP and see what happens.

I just hope that you got the program by legal means. Otherwise, have fun getting sued! 🙂
