I just had to do a lenghty re-install of CS3. Now, my updater won't work. When I incresed the log level, I finally got an error that may be the problem.
10/12/2011 8:00:09 PM: GetAppIDUpdates: getting available update info for AppID: AdobeUpdater
10/12/2011 8:00:09 PM: AdobeUpdater: signature is not valid (C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Updater5\AdobeUpdate.cer)
It apparently doesn't like the security certificate in the updater's program directory.
Is there a way I can reinstall the updater by direct download? Or maybe download and install a patch? Or maybe even get the valid *.cer files?
