    Photoshop does not run on Windows 8 64 bit

    My ASUS laptop came with Windows 8 preinstalled ( I bought it from US). I have installed Photoshop on the system but the problem is that it only runs the 32 bit version. When I start the 64 bit version it simply fails. Is anybody else having the same problem. My windows is 64 bit.

    You have information about whats happening inide the computer.

    Your Windows Is of 64 bit and Photoshop is of 32 bit version,

    No 32 bit version can run on 64 bit platform and vice versa.

    There is an option called COMPATIBILITY MODE, which can be used to run softwares of different data bit, within windows.
    Click START and select RUN IN COMPATIBILITY MODE from the menu, to run Photoshop.

    Or download a 64 bit version of Photoshop from www.adobe.com, and install it for a permanent solution.

    Backup all graphics file prior to uninstall or upgrade photoshop.

    Hello friend...



    Firstly you need to install the 64 bit supportable Photoshop because your windows 8 support the 64 bit..


    Windows 8 are come with two bit 32 bit and 64 bit and your laptop install the 64 bit windows 8...

    So you install the 64 bit supportable Adobe Photoshop..

    Click to this link to download the 64 bit Adobe Photoshop...

    http://adobe-photoshop-cs6-beta.en.softonic.com/

    After download the Photoshop then install in the Laptop..

    Hi,
    The problem is due to incompatibility.
    As you yourself saying you have 64Bit system.
    So its mostly possible that your PHOTOSHOP is for 32Bit systems.
    So just do the following:
    Goto ADOBE.com
    Goto DOWNLOADS toolbar.
    click on ADOBE PHOTOSHOP.
    Download and intstall for 64Bit systems.
    Hope this helps....

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...............

    1.the software which you have installed may not be compatible with the 64 bit.

    2.So you are facing this type of problem.

    3.So you uninstall that software first from your system.

    4.And you 'CLICK HERE'.

    5.From that website download the software installation file.

    6.At last install that software and it will work fine.

    Have a nice day..........
