I'm in the process of trying to install Davinci Resolve on a laptop running Windows 7. Ive downloaded the initial software program from the Blackmagic website. There's a file (though not an .exe file) located in the Downloads folder with the Davinci Resolve name. Though when I double-click on it, it won't open. And nothing happens when I right-click on it and select 'Open'. Any idea why it's refusing to open?

Last time I downloaded Davinci Resolve it arrived as an .exe file totalling 597Mb, so I'm guessing your download has not completed fully and you have only a partial file. I'd retry the download. Also, I know that Davinci Resolve is demanding of hardware, especially graphics hardware so I would check the specs of your laptop against their requirements to make sure it is up to the job.

Thanks for the reply. Yea I think I'll download it again. Good point about the hardware specs. Originally, I tried to install Resolve on my pc but discovered it can only be installed on 64bit Windows (my pc runs 32.) At least the laptop runs 64bit.

Remember too that 15 is not supported on Windows7. Depending on your specific setup you may or may not have to go through some extra hoops to get it to work. Great piece of software though.

Uh oh. I didn't realise this. Are there any older versions of Resolve available for download that I can run with Windows 7?

If you go to the support centre link on the DaVinci site there is a Latest Downloads section on the front page. Scroll down the list of bulletins to see links to earlier versions of all their software and updates.

Ah thankyou. It's quite an extensive list. I see various versions of Resolve 15, 14, 12, 11 and 10. I was hoping for a version that was compatible with Windows 7 and 32bit system (that's what my pc runs.) I did some googling and found out that generally, you need 8GB of RAM minimum to run Resolve. I only have 4GB of RAM. And if I recall from memory, the family member's laptop that's running 64bit has a similar amount of RAM. So looks like no Davinci Resolve for me....at least for now. Though in the future that may change if I upgrade my pc or get another computer that's higher spec.
