Can you describe this a bit more, since I'm in the process of choosing a
version to Win 7, 64-bit and running PSP9 is a MUST. Some recommend
Home Edition as [they say] going to Ultimate is a waste unless you need
encryption, Xp Mode, etc.

I'm currently running PSP9 on a Dell Precision 670 in Xp SP3 with 4GB of
RAM.. and looking around for a 64-bit, Win 7 OS. The machine is 64-bit
ready per the specs. Can we bat this around a bit more, as I'd like to
buy an `edition´┐Ż that is suitable.

As For 64 bit some plugins for example the older ones that are no longer
supported Mostly the free stuff Will not work in 64 bit.
PSP 9 was not made with a GDI that supported the fancy effect in Vista or
Win 7 as they did not Know about either at the time. When you open PSP 9 in
WIN 7 the win 7 interface changes to classic view whilst it open, the psp9
workspace will be just as is so the only difference you see is the task bar.

So the main issue is CLASSIC view? I can live with that no problem
as there are no plug-ins here, only stock v9. That means any version
of Win 7 will be ok? such as Home Premium or Pro?

IOW.. do I need Win XP Mode?

thumbnails in explore if using 64 bit But the good news is that
botproductions have a 64 bit edition of there shell ext
