I recently got a new computer, and yesterday I tried to transfer my CS3 Master Collection over. The install went fine, there were no problems. However, when I went to open the programs, nothing would happen.
It would say the application was running in the task manager (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/213/displayo.png) , but nothing would show up on screen. Not the splash page, nothing.
Photoshop opens, and I get the outline of the window, but it's just the background coloured grey, and after a few seconds it doesn't respond.
I've looked online and I have not found anything useful, so this is my last resort. Please help me
If there's any other info I need to provide let me know.
Turn off UAC. CS3 was never developed or tested on Win 7 and this may be mundane compatibility issues.
Also check in the new user account , does it work fine there.
CS3 may or may not work on Win 7 machine as it was not tested on win 7. You may try uninsalling MC CS3 and then re-installing it on a new user account and check if that makes any difference.
Turn off User Account Control as well : http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/disable-user-account-control-uac.html
