Adobe: No Plans to Make Current Products Vista Compatible

According to a statement posted on Adobe's Web site, Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver won't be getting updates to run on Windows Vista, users will have to shell out the cash for new versions (slated for shipping this spring) that support Microsoft's new operating system. Current versions of most of Adobe's major products won't work properly on the new operating system (note: I'm running Photoshop CS2 just fine, but others may have issues such as having to register the software every time it is launched). Dreamweaver 8, Adobe warns, will crash on some Vista computers when users browse for files. InDesign customers, meanwhile, may get a false error message indicating they do not have enough available disk space to run the product. Adobe lists a number of other known Windows Vista compatibility problems for those and other products. Additionally, Adobe Acrobat 8 encounters errors when run atop the new Windows OS, but the company says it plans to issue a free patch in the first half of 2007 to resolve those issues.
