I had a 50d and just bought a 7d. my photoshop cs4 was acting up so i unitstalled it. I reinstalled it from my hard copy (cd) and now i can not get it to open ps RAW....
Run Help - Updates.
If that for some reason fails, you can visit one of these pages to get updates and install them manually. You'll want the Camera Raw 5.7 update.
Ok hit the update on my CS4 and it said I had 5 updates and they down loaded to my computer but when they went to install to my CS4 it said error and to skip and continue down loading the other updates , it did that for all the down loads, none would install. I don't know how to get the zip files to the program from the zip file on the manual install.
I don't know what's wrong on your system, but apparently something's set up wrong and won't allow the automatic updating.
As far as how to install the updates manually... The instructions are there, just below the Proceed to Download button, though they could be described as a bit terse. Generally speaking, you have to extract all the files from the zip into a folder on your hard drive, then run the Setup utility.
What OS are you running?
I run Windows Vista. Maybe you have to have CRaw 5.1 to load 5.2. and so on like windows service packs..? Is there some where I can down load an updated virson of CS4 that will let me use my Serial # to run it?

If it act weird it may have been something in the preferences file. A re-install will not affect this file.
I would reset preferences. Start PS and IMMEDIATELY hold down crtl + alt + shift keys. If you beat splash screen you will get a reset window.

No, each update version stands alone. You could go from 5.0 to 5.7 in one shot, no problem.
