Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and Adobe After Effects CS5 32-bit vs. 64-bit support

Windows versions of Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and Adobe After Effects CS5 require a 64-bit edition of Windows Vista or Windows 7. This applies to both the standalone versions of the applications as well as the components of Master Collection CS5.

You cannot install or run Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 or After Effects CS5 on any of following operating systems:

  • 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows XP Home or Professional
  • 32-bit editions of Windows Vista Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise
  • 32-bit editions of Windows 7 Starter, Home Premium, Professional, or Ultimate 

32-bit vs. 64-bit support in Creative Suite 5

If you are using a 32-bit operating system, Adobe recommends that you upgrade to either:

  • 64-bit edition of Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise
  • 64-bit edition of Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, or Ultimate

To ease the transition to a 64-bit operating system, Master Collection CS5 includes a support package that contains 32-bit versions of Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 and After Effects CS4.

Until you upgrade to a compatible 64-bit operating system, you can install and use the 32-bit support package included with your purchase. After you upgrade to a qualified 64-bit operating system, you can install and use Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and After Effects CS5.

Important:  If you are upgrading from Production Premium CS4 or Master Collection CS4 you can continue to use your existing installations of After Effects CS4 and Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, including OnLocation and Encore. You do not need to install the 32-bit support package.

If you are upgrading from a standalone version of Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 or After Effects CS4, you must uninstall it before you can install the 32-bit support package. This is because standalone versions of Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 and After Effects CS4 do not include Dynamic Link. To benefit from the workflow enhancements of Dynamic Link you must install the 32-bit Support package included with your purchase.

  1. To uninstall Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 or After Effects CS4:
    • (Windows XP) Open the Windows Control Panel and double-click Add or Remove Programs. Select the product that you want to uninstall, click Change/Remove, and then follow the onscreen instructions.
    • (Windows Vista and Windows 7) Open the Windows Control Panel and double-click Programs and Features. Select the product that you want to uninstall, click Uninstall/Change, and then follow the onscreen instructions.
  2. Insert the Adobe Creative Suite 5 Content Disc into your machine and open the Adobe After Effects CS4 and Premiere Pro CS4 for Windows 32 bit folder and then the Adobe CS4 folder.
  3. Double-click Setup.exe.
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions to install the 32-bit support package.
  5. When prompted to enter a serial number, enter your 32-bit support for CS5 Production Premium and Master Collection serial number to complete the installation.

Trial software 

Entering a serial number 

Enter the serial number for the software you purchased in the serialization screen.  The serialization screen will load the first time you launch the application.  You can enter a serial number for the application itself or a serial number for any Creative Suite edition that contains the application. If the product you purchased is a Creative Suite, you can enter the serial number in any of the applications contained in the Creative Suite.  Other applications installed as part of the same Creative Suite will recognize the new serial number the next time the applications are launched. 

Only applications running as a trial will recognize the new serial number.  If any of the applications have already been serialized with a different serial number, it will continue to use that serial number until you remove the older serial number using the Help > Deactivate > Deactivate Permanently.  Then on the next launch of the application, it will recognize the new serial number. 

The serial number you purchased is for the use of the software in a specific language, and will only be accepted by a product installed in that language. 

Volume licensing 

Volume licensing customers cannot purchase from a trial directly. However, a volume licensing serial number can be used to serialize all Creative Suite applications, except the Acrobat 9 trial or retail versions that ship with a Creative Suite edition.  Acrobat 9 volume licensing software must be purchased from an authorized Adobe licensing center.  Please contact your reseller or authorized Adobe licensing center to place an order for a volume license.  To find a reseller in your area, go to http://partners.adobe.com/resellerfinder/na/reseller.jsp

Acrobat trial software

Windows: Your Acrobat and Creative Suite applications are located on two different DVDs or download files.  You must install Acrobat and Creative Suite applications separately.  If you wish to purchase these applications, you will need to provide separate serial numbers for Acrobat and the Creative Suite edition.  

Macintosh: Acrobat is not available for trial on Macintosh.  If you wish to purchase a Creative Suite product, a Macintosh compatible version of Acrobat will be provided. To find a reseller in your area, go to http://partners.adobe.com/resellerfinder/na/reseller.jsp.

Master Collection trial software

Adobe Encore CS5 is not available as a trial. It will be installed as part of the trial DVD set for Creative Suite 5 Production Premium and Master Collection but will not be available for use until you purchase. The trial versions of Adobe After Effects CS5, Flash Professional CS5, Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, and Soundbooth CS5 do not include some features that depend on software licensed from parties other than Adobe. For example, some codecs for encoding MPEG formats are available only with the full version of these products. HDV, XDCAM, and AVCHD formats and sequence presets are not supported in the trial for both Mac OS and Windows. Adobe Media Encoder export does not include MPEG-4, MPEG-2, MPEG-2 DVD, or MPEG-2 Blu-ray as export formats in the trial. The file importer does not recognize file types that are not included in trial mode (such as MPEG and XDCAM files). HDV is not included as a capture format in the Mac OS version of the trial.

Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and Adobe After Effects CS5 trial

Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and Adobe After Effects CS5 require a 64-bit edition of Windows Vista or Windows 7.  If you purchase the full version of Master Collection, complimentary versions of Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 and After Effects CS4 will be included.

Font installation

All font related documentation is online.  Visit http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/landing/creativesuite/creativesuite5.html to find our OpenType User Guide, OpenType ReadMe, links to font specific readmes, listings of fonts installed by the different CS5 products, and listings of fonts included on DVD for each of the CS5 products.

The Creative Suite 5 installer installs fonts into a default system font directory. Many of these fonts are newer versions of fonts installed by Creative Suite 4. If the installer finds older versions of these fonts in the default system font directory, it will uninstall the older versions, and save them to a new directory.  The default system font directory is:

    Apple Macintosh:  <System Disk>/Library/Fonts

    Windows: <System Disk>:\Windows\Fonts

The older fonts will be saved in the new directory:

    Apple Macintosh:  <System Disk>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/SavedFonts/current

    Windows: <System Disk>:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\SavedFonts\current

This new directory will also contain a file named "Read Me.html" which lists the saved fonts, and the version numbers of the new and old font files.

You can re-install the older fonts by deleting the new font files from the default system font directory, and moving the old files back into that directory.

There are additional fonts on the content disc. For information on installing these fonts, see http://www.adobe.com/go/learn_fontinstall_en.
