is it possible to go from windows xp 32 to windows 7 64 bit because i want to be able to use after effects and premiere pro but i have to have a 64 bit processor. so is it possible to just buy windows 7 and use 64 bit or does my processor have to be changed to a 64 bit

heres the deal, i have adobe premiere and adobe after effects, but i cannot use them because my computer has a 32 bit processor and i need 64 bit. So will i have to buy a new computer to use these programs??

A 64-bit processaor...is standard fare these days.

Many 64-bit CPUs have been running XP for years...and, of course, many of those systems have been running the programs you mentioned.

^ The answer lies within. :thumbsup:

It would be wise to have a 64bit PC, running a 64bit OS, for the best results.

I was surprised, but if anyone would switch over to 64 bit totally, it would be Adobe and their high end software.
But when a program cost thousands of dollars whats a few more thousand for hardware.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
