Looks like I was one of the lucky test bunnies when it came to loading CS3 on a new Vista 64 machine. Bought a fairly beefy critter with a quad core chip 8GB RAM and 2 TB of disk space - ready to rule the world. So wrong.

So I thought I would share my experience and maybe save others some grief and many hours in front of the screen.

You load CS3 and it appears to install without error (don't forget to run as admin). You launch PS to finish the install and nothing happens. The window opens and that's as far as it gets. Three or four years later you check task manager and it says program is not responding.

After many de-installs and one registry cleaning still no luck. Then way out there on the deep web - somewhere past the Ort cloud I found the problem.

Assuming you don't get any error messages, the license enforcer likely got hammered. So when you launch PS you won't get the challenge for the key code. Yes I was careful to deactivate my license on my old machine first.

Apparently this is a known "feature" and Adobe has put a license repair tool out on the web at http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/view...nalId=kb401528. Run this and it will repair a damaged license enforcer. You may need to make some additional steps like manually turn on Flex license service. But this will get you up and running.

Thought I might spare someone else some serious grief. Tintype

Well thats good to know...kinda late for me though. When I was having my PC woes and upgraded to a 64 bit system, I had CS3 as well. I got it to install just as you said....BUT it would never run....after countless hours of internet searching on the web and Adobe website, I understood CS3 to be INCOMPATIBLE with a 64 bit system. I call Adobe and sure enough, I WAS TOLD CS3 doesn't work with a 64bit system...I thought it odd, but after ALL the downtime and the deadlines I had approaching, I didn't have time to get a 2nd opinion....so I upgraded to CS4. Has more bells and whistles that I'll ever need, but it runs like a champ...Good to know there is a workaround since my snafu....and/or I was blatantly given bad info...

There is an additional step some folks might have to take that involves manually registering a couple of 32 bit dll files. I gather that folks needing to take that step are seeing some install error messages. I can see where it would be a significant problem for you and the other pro's. I don't pay the bills doing this. I have no contracts or artistic directors to deal with.

Wow! I recently purchased almost the identical computer (mine has 1 TB ram). I purchased a HP Pavilion Elite complete with a Blu-Ray player and DVD burner and a 25.5" vivid color widescreen monitor (which is outstanding). I loaded CS3 and went on the Net and downloaded the required driver support (or whatever they called it) and I was up and running in less than an hour. I have not looked back. If I thought there was something really difficult, I would have posted it. I guess I was lucky?

Any way, I suggest that maybe everyone will not suffer what you did. At least I hope not. It sucks to upgrade a computer. You never know what will happen.

However, I was not so lucky with other programs. It seems that every program I use had issues with Vista 64 and I had to download updates for every one of them. Some were not very easy to work with.

I got a new computer(laptop) with Vista 64 bit and discovered it loaded both a 32 bit and a 64 bit program.. When I loaded CS4,(upgraded from CS2) it loaded two of them also.

Then I loaded NIK Software complete collection and it wouldn't show up. Finally found out NIK doesn't support 64 bit so you have to open the 32 bit Photoshop. After I set up that ability in Lightoom II, all was fine with the world.

Next is downloading the NIK lightoom upgrade that allows Color Efex Pro, Silver Efecs and Vivesa to run in Lightroom as well as Photoshop.

Much to learn, padowan.

I have concluded it is a secret plot by the Mac users who are actually the driving force behind the skull and bones society and the illuminati. There plan is to deny PC users access the all the secrets of photoshop and thus become ascendent beings which would interfere with their planse for world domination.
