    fireworks

    web.webster Level 1
      Despite trying every option I can think of, downloading on Internet Explorer, Firefox, increasing download size, emptying temp files, turning off firewalls - I can download the fireworks trial but when I try to install the set up program in the folder - it just flashes off the screen and won't install.

      Anyone have Vista??? are there any security settings to override - do I have to apply compatibility to an older program????

      Please help

          just a hunch, but I think the most basic Vista (Vista Home Basic or
          something like that) isn't supported fully by some Adobe products. FWs might
          be one of them.

            Sounds like a corrupted download Try downloading again. I didn't have
            any problems installing it in Vista.

              I have Fireworks on Vista Home Premium. I installed it from a CD, though.

              If you have a setup program (an .exe file), try right-clicking on it and select "Run as administrator." Sometimes Vista fails to ask for admin permissions when it should and stuff won't install.

              Once installed, the bitmap editing tools are not compatible with Aero, so if you want to use those, you need to set compatibility for FW down a level. Hmm...what else. Oh yeah. Extensions also need to be installed with the "Run as administrator" trick.

                You need to turn off the user authentication system and the firewall I have had a few problems getting some programmes to work. This has worked every time.

                  Hello

                  How to turn off the user authentification please?
                  I tried to run as administrator but still had the same problem as the subject of this issue said

                    I never had issues with Fireworks. Try Ilustrator?

                     

                    Or try installing it to another machine (the same download) to see if the file is corrupted ot you PC/OS has some bug.
