I'm trying to install Illustrator from the installation disk. The installation requests that Disk 1 be inserted into drive L. My optical drive letters are D and G. How can I coerce the program to use an actual dvd/cd drive?
if you have any software mounted drives, you could try removing those.
or, you could work around the problem by downloading the installation files: http://prodesigntools.com/download-adobe-cs4-and-cs3-free-trials-here. html
if you dl the trial, you must follow all 7 steps. your serial number will activate.
The 404 means you have not followed the Very Important Instructions on the prodesigntools page before clicking the download links.
The 7 steps are crucial for setting the correct cookies on your hard drive so that the Adobe servers will grant you access to the download files when you click the links.
I did what you instructed. I received 2 files for the Illustrator CS3 download.
Now I have 2 files with no file extensions that I can do nothing with.
I have ADBEILSTCS3_WWE and ILSTCS3_Cont_WWE.
I also have the Adobe Download Assistant.exe.
What do I do with these *_WWE files now?
