    Maybe this link will help you make a determination?  This is for CS4:

    Did you use CS3 as an upgrade for CS4 or CS5?

    I could not find the same page as before so this is a different site.  I don't know if the minimum system requirements necessarily mean that there are Maximum system allowances.  In other words since Win7 is relatively new, some software might not run on it even though it worked fine on previous versions of the OS.  This is true for Mac OS as well and is because of the nature of the Drivers necessary to make applications work in certain system environments.

    Your friend can run it in demo mode for 30 days. Keep in mind that you will have to fill out a license transfer form as well as paper work stating that you've uninstalled the software and destroyed any copies you might have and that you did not use it as a basis for an upgrade.

    Best I can do is it should. Again, install it as a demo to find out.

     

    Finally, this is a support forum. People don't come here to rave about how well something works.

    We're going around in circles here. It's pretty obvious nobody else jumping in.

     

    I cannot give you any assurance that ANYTHING will work on your friend's computer. I can only tell you (and already have) that it works on mine. Why are you so resistant to my suggestion of installing it and running it as a demo for a few days to make sure it will work?

    I don't have a link handy for it, but there is an FAQ for Win 7 which states that CS3 was tested with it.

    Bob, How did you find that link?  I would have never been able to track that information down on my own accord.  I only provided what I was able to get above.  But you seem much more experienced with Adobe's products than I.  And since I'm not running CS3 on Win 7 I didn't want to speculate so I didn't give any further input.

    I had it bookmarked...and I deleted the link you posted since it appears to be a pirate software site.

    Woah.  I had no idea that that's what it was.  I used the same search query as I did for the first link, replacing CS4 with CS3 and that's the result that I got.  No harm intended.  Definitely not!!!  Thanks for deleting it.
