Can't install Photoshop CS3 on Windows XP SP3

Sep 28, 2008 6:12 PM

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

    Roll it back to SP2 and try it.

    bob, roll back isn't needed. i recently used an xp sp3 cd to format/install windows and cs3 install went fine.

    I've seen issues in the ID forums where rolling back to SP2 helped.

    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.
