Dual boot - Windows7/Vista
I have Adobe Premier and Photoshop on the Vista build that came with my Sony Vaio AR71S.
I have rebuilt it with Win7 64 bit and 32 bit partitions using new SSD drives.
So I can still use Premier and Photoshop, can I dual boot from a USB partition with Vista installed with the Adobe programs on it?
The Vaio didn't come with any discs, so I can't reinstall Premier and Photoshop alas - so no idea how to move them to my Windows 7.
Any suggestions much appreciated.

If you have the OS's on seperate drives but both connected try running the exe from the other drive...
I have had good luck doing this. just have your Vista drive plugged in an accessable while booted to the Win7 drive.
Search the vista drive for the exe file and run it. you stand a good chance it will fire up and run...
I've done that with quite a few programs when I dual booted with XP... I just ran the file from the XP drive and never installed it on the win7 drive... some work and a few dont. its worth a shot

You don't say what version of Premiere and Photoshop you are using but there are downloads for a lot of these programs available as a trial.
If you have a serial number for these programs you should be able to download the trial and then activate it with your serial number.
Some of these programs will run just by clicking on the .exe file where it is installed as MaxRat has said, and Adobe will let you install most of their software twice.
I'm running Windows 8 and found that Illustrator and Premiere would run from the original Windows 7 install but Photoshop and inDesign would not on my computer.
I had to reinstall them in Windows 8.
