    I shall be glad if anyone can let me know if the 32-bit versions of the
    following software will work on Windows XP Pro 64-bit Edition SP2:

    1. Adobe Creative Suite 2/3 and 4.
    2. Autodesk 3D Studio Max.
    3. Microsoft Office Professional 2003 and 2007.

    Regards and thanks in anticipation.

  2. 1. CS2 & 3 will work. CS4 is unsupported: it works for some, other have
    problems. http://adobeforums.com/webx/.59b7927e . The 32-bit components of
    CS4 may be fine, but CS4 will probably install both 32 and 64 bit versions
    (where 64-bit components exist) and launch the 64-bit versions by default.

    2. Officially unsupported.
    http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=5659453 . There
    is a 64-bit version which is supported on x64 XP.
    http://area.autodesk.com/index.php/forums/viewforum/31/ may give some
    insight.

    3. Yes.

  3. Have you had problems with MS Office? I was running Office
    2003 on Win x64 w/SP2 and didn't have any problems with it.
    I have also seen posts from others about running Office
    2007 on Win x64. I'm currently running Office 2007 on Vista
    x64.

    So, AFIK the answer to #3 should be Yes.
