Adobe has issued a notice that future versions of Creative Cloud (apps) will not support older versions of Windows and Mac.
Here’s what Adobe has to say about that:
” As we prepare for our next major release of Creative Cloud, we wanted to share some information on updated operating system requirements.
To take advantage of the latest operating system features and technologies, the next major release of Creative Cloud will not support Windows 8.1, Windows 10 v1511 and v1607, and Mac OS 10.11 (El Capitan). Most Creative Cloud applications receiving updates in the next major release will still support Windows 7. “
All Adobe CC applications which have been released up till now will continue to work on mentioned operating system but not the future ones.
According to Adobe’s release, they will continue to support Lightroom and Photoshop on Windows 7. However, their audio and video applications, like Premiere Pro, will not.
