Installation Issues? A Checklist

Oct 4, 2012 9:00 AM

Tags: #installation #checklist #adobe_installation

Many folk seem to have issues, when attempting to install Adobe products. This is a checklist of things to do, prior to attempting to install. It's general, and covers most Adobe programs.

 

 

  1. run as Administrator
  2. Extract any archived downloaded file, including the FULL folder structure.
  3. install to C:\ only. You can do custom folders, from the default, but install on C:\. Also few Adobe programs do well with a full network installation.
  4. turn off all AV, pop-up blockers, spy-sweeping software
  5. turn off all firewalls, and lower the security settings, if necessary. Look for individual "safeguards," and turn those off - differs by OS
  6. have plenty of free space on your C:\
  7. check your OS's language and keyboard language against the language that you are using to install, and also the language that you DO install
  8. If installing from physical media, and you are having issues, try to Copy your DVD to your computer's HDD, and attempt to install from there.

 

Good luck,

 

Hunt

    i've done all of this, used CS4 cleaner, and then some.

     

    i installed all other products fine, only Premiere CS4 is the issue.

     

    There is a problem with Premiere CS4.

    Hi,

    1)I would like to know that how are u installing the software, Is it through downloaded folder or any media.If it is through media(DVD) then , you can copy paste the complete folder on your hard drive and then try to install again.The best place would be Desktop.This could be an issue with the bad sector on the media.

     

    2)Register the windows installer.

     

    1. Click Start , and then click Run .
    2. In the Open box, type msiexec / unreg , and then click OK .
    3. Click Start , and then click Run .
    4. In the Open box, type msiexec / regserver , and then click OK .

    3)Create a new user account as admin and then try to install from that account.

     

    Try the above step one by one and see if it works.And possible, put the screenshot of this error message.And let me tell you that it is not specifically adobe error, it can occur with any software installation.

    Same exact issue with creative suite 5.5 - spent 2 days on this now

    it gets to complete download then says not enough room for extraction  - I have vista - 140 GB free on C and 300 GB free on D

    have done all the suggestions - that I can find -  no go- just does the same thing

    will not let me delete and try to download to a jump drive - automatically goes back to  about 90 percent down then freezes on extraction and gives 101 error again

     

    I would really like to trial this before I buy it - in fact will not buy if I can not trial
