It will not even install on a 32 bit OS.  You must have 64 bit Windows.

It does seem to be running just fine under Windows 8.

As Jim stated, an emphatic NO. Premiere Pro CS6 is 64-bit exclusive, and thus requires an entirely 64-bit system (CPU and OS). If your system has only a 32-bit OS installed, Premiere Pro versions since CS5 will not even install at all, let alone run at all, on that system. The last version of Premiere Pro to support Windows x32 was CS4.

As of PrPro CS 5, it is ONLY a 64-bit program, requiring a 64-bit OS to install/run. Going back to CS 5, if one had the Production Premium suite, PrPro CS 4 (32-bit) was included. I do not recall any 32-bit versions of any of the Production Studio, or Master Collection, being included with CS 6.

It is an OS upgrade, or nothing.

Good luck,

Alright, Thank you 3 both. Now I hve one final question on this forum.

Can you get a laptop with a 64-bit operating system, and if so, how does it handle, compared to a 32-bit? e.g. Faster, slower, runs hotter etc. (I know there are a lot of variables in that, but just in general.)

Thanks!

Your best bet with any editing system is to wipe the hard drive and install Windows yourself, then install only those programs you need for editing.  Use a second computer for everything else, like web surfing, email, games, etc.

So from that perspective, yes you can have a laptop with a 64 bit OS.  You just need to buy the right version of Windows.

A well-designed laptop, with a 64-bit OS will perform all functions w/ 64-bit programs, much faster. There should be no downside to that 64-bit OS.

I think that John T's link will point you in the right direction regarding a new laptop w/ 64-bit OS.

Good luck,

Also, I would like to know exactly which laptop that you're currently using, and what exactly the specs (processor (CPU), RAM, hard drive(s), GPU or integrated graphics) are. After all, if you are running 32-bit Windows because your laptop is simply too old to run 64-bit programs properly (or if the components fall short of Adobe's minimum requirements, such as too little RAM or a CPU that simply cannot run most currently available programs properly), it's definitely time for a new laptop.

Remember, the reason why CS5 and higher is 64-bit only is partly due to its tremendous requirements as far as the amount of RAM is concerned. In fact, CS6 really needs 16GB of RAM - far more RAM than any 32-bit version of Windows can address (remember, the most amount of RAM that 32-bit Windows can address is 3.99GB total minus the 700MB or so that is reserved for hardware interrupt caching) - just to perform acceptably, especially on weaker-performance laptops. And Adobe's official minimum is still 2GB although that amount barely runs Premiere Pro CS6 at all, and you would not have been able to do much if anything at all in that program.

And had I given advice about a low-end laptop back then, I would not have picked a model with 32-bit Windows Vista or Windows 7 at all due to their extremely small amount of headroom between Microsoft's minimum RAM requirements (IIRC, Windows 7 requires a minimum of 1GB of RAM just to even run at all - and yet it cannot utilize 4GB of RAM) and the maximum amount of total RAM that it can address.

I currently do not have a laptop of any kind. I have 2 desktops, one 12-year-old one I use for the internet and a few other things. The other desktop machine is my gamming machine that I use mainly for video games. I have premiere on that machine because my internet one can't run it (Too slow, and 32-bit). I want a laptop for basically everything, internet, music, DVDs, premiere, iTunes, some small gaming, etc. I'll be going into collage in a few years, and am probably going to need one. I don't care if it is a little slow with Premiere, all I care is that it will run, and work properly. It's obviously going to run slower than my one machine.

The link that John T. posted (Reply # 6) will offer two possibilities:

ADK (they design computers to run Adobe programs, plus some others) and Sager (they design extreme gaming laptops, but those can be easily adapted to run PrPro, and most other Adobe programs).

I currently have an older Sager, but will be going with an ADK to replace it.

While those are not the ONLY suppliers, their machines are stout, and extremely powerful. I have had zero issues with the Sager Customer Support, and two of the main folk from ADK, Eric & Scott, post here and in the Hardware Forum constantly. They too offer great Customer Support.

Good luck,

Thank you for your assistance, but I do not have $1,500 I can spend on a laptop. Plus, There is a computer place down the street from my house, and they build computers and laptops, at a discounted price. And yes, I trust them. If anything I would get my laptop from that place. I understand your recomendation, but I do not entirly trust websites with big purchases like this.

   Thank you all for helping me, I know where I will get my laptop from, if I get the money for it.

If the local shop works with custom laptops, and understand Video editing, then staying local will be a benefit.

Good luck, and I think that John T. also linked to some useful material, on what is required to edit Video with PrPro on a laptop. Take a look at that, and do not hesitate to give the shop a copy.

If they have any questions, the Hardware Forum would be a great place to ask those: http://forums.adobe.com/community/premiere/hardware_forum?view=discussions

Bad idea.  Again, best practice is to use your edit rig only for editing, with a second machine for anything else you want to do.  Quite often a lot of other programs will interfere with your editing software - codec packs, video games, office suites, etc.

I have been fortunate with having other programs on my laptop, which does see quite a bit of video and image editing. I have Office, plus full e-mail, including MailWasher. Now, no CODEC packs, and no games (other than the stuff that installs with Windows), so it is otherwise fairly clean. I also do NOT do much multi-tasking, when editing video, other than maybe having PS, En, AI and AE open, as they are needed.

Just make sure you get a laptop that meets or exceeds the minimum requirements that ADOBE specifies (like two disk drives) and if you want any real editing capability as it should have an nVidia CUDA GPU plus as much memory as you can afford

That's not the issue.  Most modern computers are more than capable of doing several things at once.

The issue is with INSTALLING unnecessary software on an edit rig.  You take your chances that something in that 'unnecessary' program will screw up your edit system.  So the safe bet is to simply not do that.  Use one machine dedicated to editing, and nothing else, and a second machine for everything else.

My computer has Win7 64bit Pro -and- CS5 Master Collection -and- MS Office 2007 Pro -and- a couple dozen or so "small" utility programs (Imgburn, FTP, etc)

I use one computer for everything... no room, or $$, or a 2nd computer... I also have never installed any codecs that did not come with CS5

The only game I have installed is pokerstars.com to try and learn Texas Hold'Em (monthly splurge is a small $$ poker tournament at a local card room... and I play online once in awhile to try and get better)

I edit ONLY video from my Canon vixia and wife's Flip, and when editing I do nothing else... and I have had ZERO problems

While it would be nice to have a dedicated (and faster) video editing computer, not everyone has the space or money to do that

This is not an answer this is a question and you've been very helpfull to me.

I have a Dell machine that the processers are 86 meaning 32 my current OS in XP pro I'm updateing to Window 7 64 bit sp1 pro.Then I plan on getting Prem Pro CS6. I'm looking at the specs it saying I need a 64 bit processer talk to Adobe Tech they said everything would be fine I don't get it. Seem like I've got a problem. If CS6 won't work will CS4 work using the windows 7 pro in 32 bit mode

Think that covers it

Thank you

You will have to be much more specific, what is the processor name/model number?  Just because it is x86 does not tell us enough.  Chances are if it is XP based that you will be struggling with CS6

Unfortunately, it's too old to run Premiere Pro CS6 - and also below Adobe's stated minimum requirements. The Pentium D is based on the now-very-obsolete NetBurst technology (used on the original Pentium 4), and it is extremely inefficient (in terms of performance per clock cycle). Adobe requires a Core 2 Duo (or a Core 2-based Pentium Dual-Core, not to be confused with the archaic Pentium D) at an absolute minimum to run Premiere Pro CS6 at all. But because of its 64-bit-exclusive operation, a Core i5 or higher is better if you're going to run CS6 at all.

As for CS4, the Pentium D still barely meets Adobe's practical minimum requirements for HDV, and insufficient for AVCHD.

Thank you for a clear answer my CS 4 Runs except for a sometime crash but I've learned to live with it. What I wanted to avoid is formating my computer to Window 7 64bit Pro and discovering CS 4 would not work any longer which is something the Windows 7 advisor said and I need to upgrade but now I see that is not possible.

As I mentioned Adobe said CS6 would work I did not believe them and to format and discover I had to go back to XP would be a waist of time.

Final question of the day will CS4 run on Windows 7 64 bit Pro under XP Mode if it won't I'm not installing Windows 7 and leaving things as they are.

Thank you

I would not bother to make a fresh format and install of everything on this system. Sure it cleans up a lot, but there is no gain from going though all the time and effort of a fresh install.

I don't know about CS6, but the CS5 Master Collection I have included PPro CS4... so Adobe certainly seems to think it will work with Win7 64bit

If you have problems, and since you have Win7 64bit Pro, you could download the Windows virtual XP compatibility addon

This is only ONE example of using Virtual XP http://forums.adobe.com/thread/702693

Thank you I do not know or understand this stuff I do my best with what I have. Your comment on is it worth the effort seem if I did do this I'd be waisting my time. Since I gain nothing switching to Window 7 it would seem point less to install it other than the fact Windows XP will soon be a discontinued support item in the near future. I'd do it if I knew Pre Pro CS 4 would work thought what do you think would it. Love to buy new one but with what I do there's no great point in doing that I know it's old but it works great.

Someone tell me will  PP CS 4 work on it Windows 7 sp 1 64 bit even though it may not be a great move if it will work even to a slight advantage

or should I get the 32bit

Sorry this is the only way I know how to get the answers

Thank you
