Microsoft distributes 32- and 64-bit Windows 7 on the same DVD, but who knows what Adobe Customer Support might do.
Adobe has a distribution agreement with Dell to sell PSE 7 preloaded on Dell XPS desktops that have Vista 64 only, implying that Adobe supports PSE 7 on Vista 64, at least on Dells.
Many people have reported on the Adobe forums and Elements Village that PSE 5.0.2, 6, 7, and 8 run fine on 64-bit Windows 7 and Vista.
The only known limitation is that the downloader will not start automatically, nor will it be listed in the Windows PSE 8, the published System Requirements say simply that Windows 7 is supported, with no mention of 64-bit.
As of 3/7/2009, Adobe doesnt explicitly state whether it provides customer support for PSE 7 on Vista 64.
However, at least one person has reported that Adobe Technical Support told them that PSE 7 is unsupported on Vista 64.
Use similar steps to copy the album hierarchy, using the Albums Properties command to write the Organizers catalog metadata to the selected files, including the date and time, caption, notes, and keywords.
Beware that PSE 6 (and perhaps earlier versions) doesnt tell you if it cant write the data to the files, either because PSE doesnt know how to manipulate the file format, the file is files.) Note that the Write Keyword Tags command has a fair number of bugs and often doesnt write the metadata correctly; for a partial list, see: Use the free utility Export command to export (copy) the selected files into a new destination folder.
Note that you dont need to repeat this step on successive imports if the tag hierarchy hasnt changed.
You dont even need to do this step if you just want to import the tag names themselves and not their parent categories PSE will bring in the tag names in step 4 when you import the files.
