    I've never done this before. Is it a matter of just downloading 10.5.7 and re-installing?

    If you have a time machine backup, you could roll back but you'd lose files if you didn't back them up somewhere else. Otherwise, you'd have to do an archive-install.

    PremierePro CS5 is officially compatible with 10.5.7. It may work in 10.5.8 but i would rather keep safe.

    That means 10.5.7 or later. 10.5.7 is the minimum requirement. Of course, it's compatible with 10.5.8.

    What are you afraid of? that it would blow up the computer?? If you determined it wouldn't work, then you could downgrade. But, that's most likely not necessary.

    I found out and you are correct. In most cases i would assume 'and above...but some software i use is picky. Like Pro Tools, etc, so i wanted to be on the safe side. Thanks for the feedback.
