Can't install Photoshop CS3 Trial on Windows

Hey, I downloaded the trial version of CS3 the other day, wanting to try it out and see what it's like, I got to the end of the installation and it says
"A problem was encountered while trying to load the trial period for Adobe Photoshop CS3.
Click Quit to see if restarting your computer or reinstalling the software fixes this problem. Otherwise, click Continue to display a screen where you can enter a valid serial number to begin using the product without trial."
I'd rather not buy the software just yet, just want to try it out. I know CS3 is a little out-dated but due to pc requirements, I'm not able to run CS4 on my laptop, also I'm used to using CS3 as I used to use it on an old computer but for some reason it won't work on my laptop.
I've tried reinstalling it, I've also tried to restart my laptop and the program and none of these got it to work.
Is there anything else that can be done?
Thanks.

  • Can't Install Photoshop CS3 Trial

    I began the setup process for photoshop cs3, and while installing it crashed. I tried to run the program, and it wouldnt load. I attempted to uninstall it through Add/Remove programs, and it would not work. I tried re-installing the program, but the setup program will not run. Nothing about this program will run/work correctly for me. If you have any ideas as to how I can uninstall/repair/re-install photoshop CS3, please let me know.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

  • Can't install Photoshop CS3 on Windows XP SP3

    Hello, I recently have reformated my machine and installed XP SP3
    sadly now, I can't install Photoshop CS3, when I double-click on Setup.exe, it show me a small bar/dialog which tells me it's extracting files, but after that, NOTHING HAPPENS
    I left it for an hour, and again, nothing happens. I checked my Task Manager and I found that Setup.exe and Msiexec.exe are running but with completely 0% of system resource.
    I tried everything possible, nothing worked for me, I really need Photoshop CS3 for my work.
    thanks advance

    I hear ya. that's on an existing system with an upgrade. i've solved (well, resolved) a remote desktop problem with a rollback to sp2.
    but on the clean xp pro sp3 system (1st app install after anti-virus and firewall), the cs3 install took about 10 minutes. very fast very smooth.

  • Can't install photoshop CS3

    I need to use an older version of Photoshop. Adobe said it was my mac.
    I'm on 10.6.8 and can't install photoshop CS3. I've uninstalled and when I try to install, I get: please insert CS4. Doesn't sound right to me.
    I called Adobe and they wanted $69 to fix the problem. They looked at my crash reports and said it was my mac. I was afraid to let them touch my mac so I didn't go for it. He said I will have problems with other Adobe installations if I don't hire them to fix my mac.
    Can anyone read crash reports and help me out? I'm not sure which to include, mac or adobe.

    It works so so on another computer, but when I want to copy the files there is a pop-up saying that such an action cannot be done.
    I still cannot install it even on that computer.
    Is there another way? Or am I forced to buy CS3 all over again.
    Using Windows Explorer I have copied a CD's files and directories to a directory on my hard drive to install from there... I have NEVER seen a pop-up saying I could not copy the CD's files and directories

    you might be able to (using compatibility mode) but you probably can't activate (if ps 7 even needs activation).

  • Installed Photoshop CS3 trial, now previous Photoshop 7 won't work

    I've downloaded and installed PS CS3 trial and given it a go but decided to stick with version 7 as it's still doing everything I need.
    So when the trial period on CS3 has expired I've uninstalled it but now Photoshop 7 won't run. I get this message a few seconds after I click on the PS icon . ..
    "An unexpected and unrecoverable problem has occurred due to a program error. Photoshop will now exit"
    I've reinstalled PS7 several times to no avail.
    Since I installed the CS3 trial I upgraded from Tiger to Leopard - maybe this is the cause!
    Any idea's how I can get PS7 working again?
    Cheers
    steve

    >Since I installed the CS3 trial I upgraded from Tiger to Leopard - maybe this is the cause!
    Photoshop 7 will not run under Leopard...

  • Can't install Photoshop (CS3) via Remote Disc

    I was successfully able to install iWork '08 last night via Remote Disc, but I've tried twice to install Photoshop and both times it failed. I was able to get on Acrobat Professional and some of the Shared Components, but after anywhere between 30 minutes and 2 hours it gives me a message saying that installation of Photoshop failed.
    Anyone else had a similar problem?

    Don't know about Windows issues since I was installing from my MBP. I can only imagine it's worse.
    I was successful in dragging the entire Photoshop folder over from the MBP last night, but when I opened it it said that pieces were missing. That's the trouble with CS3; it's all so intertwined that it seems like you really need the installer to help you get just the bits you need.
    I'm trying to embrace Steve's disc-less vision here, but I'm not sure if we're there yet. I don't want to break down and by the Superdrive, but it sounds like a lot of people got one (probably in anticipation of this kind of headache).

  • Can't Install Flash CS3 Trial

    Hi everyone -
    I'm new to Flash - in my quest to find a tool where I can
    develop rich internet application, or rich applications for that
    matter I decided to download the trial version of Flash CS3.
    But I can't seem to be able to install it no matter what I
    do.
    I downloaded the trial version (Windows - 403.71 MB). I
    extracted the file 'ADBEFLPRCS3_WWE.exe' and ran the setup.exe, the
    installation screen saying 'loading setup' opens for a second and
    then disappears - I don't have any application running when when I
    start the installation - and the only Adobe software I have in my
    machine is adobe writer/ reader.
    OS: Windows Professional with plenty of space and memory.
    Has anyone experienced the same issue and can help me.....I
    want to evaluate the software and then make a decision for
    purchase.
    Please Help
    Thanks

    Thanks for the suggestion...
    But I never had to reinstall the OS in order to install an
    application, that seems a little bit extreme.
    Thanks,

  • Can I install Photoshop 7.0 for Windows onto my new MacBook?

    Ages ago I purchased Photoshop 7.0 for Windows. When my laptop died I decided to change to a MacBook, not even considering I might not be able to reinstall it.
    Well I put the CDROM in, it recognises something is there, but I can't get it to do anything.
    Is it possible to install it on my Mac or do I need to purchase some kind of upgrade?
    What are my options basically.
    I have it for personal use only, bought the education version as a student, so I don't want to spend hundreds replacing it.
    I have tried some other photoshop-like apps and one of them was set up almost the same as Photoshop (Pixelmator I think it was) but it has stopped working now and just crashes on me.
    I use layers a lot so I need something with this capability.
    Thanks

    you cannot use a windows file to install on a mac.
    you can subscribe to adobe cc, http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/buying-guide.html

  • Can't install Photoshop CS3 10

    I download Adobe Photoshop CS3 10 and did what the installing file said I double clicked the setup.exe, after it loaded the files it needed in the ZIP file, the initializing box popped up with the loading bar, after its done loading the box diappears, but nothing after that. How do I get it to install? I have Windows VISTA and also ran the setup.exe as an administrator and still the same thing happens.

    Make sure you have sufficient disk space and proper priviliges for your Temp folders (Users/Scott/AppData/Roaming or so...). also turn off DEP for the installer package, if for some reason Vista has "protected" you because the package was downloaded.

  • How can I install Photoshop 5.0 with Windows Vista?

    I have Photoshop 5.0 LE and have tried and tried to install it on windows vista. Does anyone have suggestions
    on how I can install it. My system Type is x64-based PC and my system directory is C:\windows\system 32. Any suggestions are welcome, I will try everything that I haven't already tried.  I previously had Adobe Photo Deluxe 3.o Deluxe Home Edition and I loved it, but it no longer works on XP or Vista.     Thanks.

    I don't think you will have much luck with that ancient program.
    Why not go for Photoshop Elements? At least it's from the present century!
    There are also free basic image editing applications.
