Chris...I don't have an answer for you but a little input from my own bad
experiences. I too am on an HP Pavillion though it's Vista 32. I wonder if
HP's bios or something else HP that is causing the issues. In my case I've
found little or no help here on the forum AND the same through Adobe's tech
support. I can successfully install everything but Flash will not work. I've
reduced number of fonts (on their suggestion), turned everything security
off, and used both the Windows Install Cleanup and the AdobeCS4 Clean... all
to no avail. Another troubleshooting step suggested was to install on
another system. I was able to successfully install on my HP Vista laptop. I
think all that tells me is the issue is with my desktop. Another tip I read
was to remove Adobe Flash Player. Maybe one of those will be something you
hadn't heard that may help.
Good luck...I'll be watching here for any other tips from fellow travellers.
I've had so many problems just like what you've described that I decided to do away with all the manufacturer's garbage software that I never use. I bought Adobe Design Premium CS3, and it had very similar issues as you've described. I then purchased Vista Ultimate 64 bit, installed that, and nothing more (no HP software at all) and have had no issues since doing so. In fact: I had to re-partition my HDD to allow a 32-bit installation of Windows XP, since Vista doesn't recognize my old scanner, but I simply boot into XP only to scan, then re-boot into Vista to do everything else.
You're running Vista 64 with DP-CS3 with no issues? Hmm... makes me thing on something.
I'm having issues getting DP-CS3 to install on my Vista 32 laptop, after doing an uninstall of DP-CS2. It installs only (old Macromedia) apps; Dreamweaver, Flash. But all the componets from Adobe do not install.
I've been thinking of Vista64 (mainly for the RAM ability).
Though, man I'd hate to see how doing a complete rebuild of a box would be. No issues you're having with DP-CS3 huh? Are you running PS-extended? or standard?
Design premium installed and runs perfectly for me under Vista Ultimate
64. It included Photoshop Extended.
