Dear Experts-exchange Experts!

I have been a member for several years now and as a IT Pro I really have appreciated the answers that I have received using this marvellous source of information, The Experts-Exchange website!  I could even put it this way, that I haven derived that kind of information that has really bailed me out of many tight and tricky situations when fixing computers etc.

I would like the Experts to tell my, whether I can update my friends computer to Windows 8 Pro. He's now got Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit in his computer. The main thing that is causing me some discomfort, is Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, that he's got in His computer at the moment. Is Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 going to work, if I upgrade his computer from Vista 64-bit to Windows 8 Pro?

Looking forward to Your valuable answers to my question, You Members and Experts using   Experts-Exchange web site.

Your's Sincerely

Ariawaken

I tried to install Adobe CS4 (the entire suite, Premier Pro included) and had issues that ended up being permission related in Windows 8. What I ended up doing was installing it to:
C:\Adobe Products\

It seems that there are some permission issues in the default Program Files path that caused an issue (CS6 installed flawlessly and ran great in it's default location).

Installing there should not cause any errors to popup.
