First off I am new to this and I'm almost entirely sure I posted the question in a somehow wrong way, if I did, sorry.
I am trying to install Photoshop CS 3 and Illustrator CS 3 on a OS running Windows XP Service Pack 2. When I use the setup file, windows invariably gives me an error. It's a generic windows error that suggests you to send a report file to Microsoft - I'm running Windows on russian language and therefore not sure of the exact wording.
Both setups have been known to work before. Note that the windows installation is relatively new, so it's therefore possible I'm missing some system files.
Hope some of you will have an idea how to solve this. Thank you in advance.
Sorry for any possible grammar mistakes - English is not my prime language.
Welcome to the forum.
Also, this article is a very general checklist for installing most Adobe programs, so might be useful: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3419692#3419692
Also note, that if you are installing from a download, those files are usually archived in a ZIP-type format, though probably not officially ZIP. They need to first be fully Extracted (Un-ZIP'ed) with their entire folder structure, to install from them.
