All I have read says Windows 7 and FreeHand work fine. This was discussed on the Adobe forums over the years and no problems as such.


As you noted, most here are Mac users so much of the angst is because of changes to Apple's newer OS-X removing the compatibility mode (Rosetta) that allowed older apps like FreeHand to work. Microsoft has kept this backwards compatibility intact in newer versions of its OS.

Yes, running FreeHand MX in a Windows environment within OSX is doable but it is more about having a transparent workflow between the two running OS's. Copy/paste and file exchange have to be considered. And this is only a hedge as time goes on without a modern version of FreeHand available.

That said, Windows FreeHand users are presently more self-sufficient with compatability issues and you may as well stay with a PC. But keep watching as this issue of compatibility is addressed.

Hi, it's me again. :P

My PC is now 8 yrs old and I'm about to spring for a new PC with windows 7 Pro so that I can continue using my FH MX.
I already read elsewhere about the PDF printing issue and a couple of solutions. Hopefully FH will install and run on my new pc computer. Should I count on being able to run FH directly in win7, or will I have to run it while in XP mode?

My main question though is this-
(and this may seem like a dumb question but I'm hoping to order my computer next week and want to be sure)...

Does the particular Intel processor type matter?
As long as it's an Intel processor, does it matter to FH MX whether it's an Intel "3rd generation Core" i3, i5, or i7, ....or to run FHMX does it have to be an older "Pentium dual-core 3.1 GHz" processor?

...as long as it's an Intel, can the new processor be one of the 3rd generation Intel Core (i3, i5, or i7) processors? If so, that would be awesome for me.
I don't think I can return/exchange the processor once it's ordered in the custom build and delivered.

Maybe this question is dopey, but this is the only place where there might be someone who can actually tell me before I take the leap and order a new system. I totally depend on FHMX for my work!

I'm feeling safe about ordering win7 now, but does the Intel processor type matter too? :?:

THANK YOU!!

I have a i7 with Windows 7 64 bit and Freehand MX runs fine. As said, PDF might be a problem but I'm using the free PDF Creator and it works great.

Windows 8??

Postby Cheryllion » Fri Nov 02, 2012 10:35 pm

So the big question -- has anyone upgraded to Windows 8, and if so, does Freehand MX still work?

I can't answer your question, since I am about to go from windows XP to win 7, but.... considering that win 8 is supposed to be a complete overhaul of the windows operating system, I would have serious doubts as to whether FH would work on it. But I too will be interested in seeing someone test that.
Some folks are thinking win8 is going to be about as 'popular' for work PCs as Vista was. PC work users I talk to seem to really love their win7, so I think 7 will be around for a long time to come.
