Fireworks MX Crashes when trying to open PSD files - Macromedia Fireworks

    Default Fireworks MX Crashes when trying to open PSD files

    I am working in Windows 98, 256 ram, Pentium 2 processor. When ever I try to open a psd file it just stops responding. I am able to open the same psd file in Fireworks 4, however all the text is converted to bitmaps.

    This is why I was really looking forward to Fireworks MX (I have version 7.288 as a trial version) According to all the doentation, this was a key feature of MX, to be able to edit text and other graphics created in Photoshop.

    Saw some other users having this same problem after I did a search, but this was over 8 months ago. Is their a fix for this...

    Please help what is going on.....

    Build 7.288 is MX 2004. If so, your computer doesn't meet minimum
    specifications. That said, it probably would work, just with really poor
    performance. It seems quite likely to me that the size of your PSD file is
    most likely to cause problems...

    Can you give more details of your system, and also of the file size you're
    trying to open.

    Rich,

    Thanks for responding. The file I am trying to open is 1.9 mb. It opens fine in Fireworks 4... but everything is a bitmap image. I know I need a new computer and it may be time to just get it over with...

    Copied some of my computer specs below: Dell Dimension XPS R450 (current RAM 256)

    Microprocessor speeds 350, 400, or 450 MHz internally/100 MHz externally

    L2 cache 512 KB
    Math coprocessor internal to microprocessorystem chip set Intel 440BX AGPset

    I'm inclined still to think that this is caused by an underpowered computer.
    Yours is quite a long way under the minimum spec for FWMX 2004.

    If you want, you can e-mail it to me at nf.net and I'll see
    if I can open it with editable text/objects. At least then you'll know
    whether this could be the thing that pushes you into an upgrade! If I
    can't, maybe Fireworks is not the application to use.
