View Full Version : CS3 Crash problems under XP?

Man, I just installed CS3 Premium Design Bundle.

This is brutal, InDesign crashes immediately every time without hesitation.

PS is very unhappy about something and crashes very often.

Everything was hunky dory before I installed it, CS2 hummed along no problem.

Anyone else experience this under XP32?

Mine ran fine right up till I had to reinstall Windows, at that point I had to go in and manually delete every bit of Adobe data from my drive. Some of which I had to go in safe mode and change permissions on to delete it. Then the install disk worked fine again. I beleive Adobe does have a cleaner program, but I usually do everything the hard way.
Other than that I have not had any problems.

I had CS3 on my old dual xeon machine with VT4 and no problems.
OK, well I did not install Premiere, but everything else.

I have a new quad core but have not put CS3 on it yet, but the old seemed fine.

Yeah, this is pretty odd.

Some of the programs crash almost immediately on start.

I will wipe it and try reinstalling it.

Just remember what I said about permissions. I have found that Adobe takes permission for the owner on some files, which is why some users have problems reinstalling CS3. I do not know why they need to do so, nor do I know why the installer does not know enough to reset the permissions before reinstalling. Unless this info is stored in the registry, which mine was wiped.
Anyways good luck with reinstalling,
