Windows 7: Flash CS4 Doesn't work with Windows 7 x64

Flash CS4 Doesn't work with Windows 7 x64

Hello everyone,

I've browsed everywhere on the net, and all I find is people saying that Adobe creative suite CS4 works on Windows 7 x64. Well, it does, except one part. Flash CS4!

I was wondering if anyone found a work around to this? I have already tried running in XP compatibility mode, and no luck.

I really don't want to use the x86 version of windows 7 as I'll lose 1gb of ram in the process, and definitly don't want to dual boot, as i'm usually just doing things on my computer, and randomly see my flash icon, and decide I wanna do a little programming in Actionscript for a half hour or so.

Yes, I know I can get Flex, or another IDE, however, I like the convience of in Flash CS4, as inferior as it may be to Flex, of hitting ctrl enter, and my program is compiled, and running in front of my face instantly.

I generally compile once every 2 mins to test changes I make while programming, so the Flash CS4 is best for me as I'm a fairly new programmer, and I only know actionscript 3 as of right now.

Has anyone been in a similiar situation, or gotten flash CS4 to work on the 64 bit version of windows 7? TBH i don't even know if flex works on windows 7, i've never tried it, lol but again, the problem with me enjoying instant compiles is why I'm trying to get Flash CS4 to work in the first place, so it really doesn't matter if flex works or not.

Anyway, thanks for any help

In the short term, install a VM.

Ok. Well I installed Virtual Box and windows xp as a guest. Because VMware you need to buy, however, i find the mouse slittely laggy in response time. I will buy VM if it's better than Virtual Box.

The lag is very little, but precise mouse movements quickly and accruatley are kinda a big deal in design.

What do you think?

My mouse is properly responsive. Did you select a fixed VHD size, or a dynamic one? Sounds like dynamic, which sux IMO. I could not deal with the pervasive stutter.

If you chose dynamic, re-install XP in the VM.

We are both running Windows 7 X64.
The version of my Flash CS4 is 10.0.2 may be different to his?
He may need to update.

Hello? Is this mic on?

Perhaps I should have been more specific.
