Bizair Posted October 29, 2013 Share Posted October 29, 2013 I am considering upgrading my OS from Windows 7(64 bit) to Win 8.1. Has anybody been through this process and, if so, can advise any problems they have had? Particularly with Lightroom and Photoshop (I use versions LR5 and CS6 respectively. I understand that it's best to install Windows 8 over Win 7 first, then upgrade Win 8 to Win 8.1. The reason is that installing Win 8 first brings across most applications without having to reinstall them, and then upgrading to Win 8.1 retains those programs. If one installs Win 8.1 directly over Win 7, then all applications need to be reinstalled, and reconfigured. Strange, I know, but that is apparently how it works. I was dumbfounded when I found that out. However, I do have a need to move to Win 8, so any experience would be helpful. Many thanks Ken Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
