    install cs3 in windows 10?

    cs3indesign Level 1

      How do I install indesign cs3 in windows 10? I previously installed in windows 7 and subsequently upgrades to windows 10. Cs3 ran fine for two months and then stopped. Tried troubles shooter and various compatability settings. Tried reinstalling from original cd. Any help?

          CS3 is not supported under Windows 10. You are, unfortunately, on your own.

            Not sure what 'cs3 not supported under windows 10' MEANS. The windows 10 software doesn't support cs3 or cs3 is not supported by adobe? As I said in my original post. cs3 ran for two months under windows 10. Before that cs3 ran in windows 7 for three years. without and hiccups.  BELOW ID THE ERROR MSG FROM CS3 INDESIGN LOG. Probably not very helpful, but I thought I'd give it a try

             

            Thanks

              You can try trashing your preferences, but beyond that I’ve got nothing. CS3 is just too old to try and run on a brand new operating system. It’s now 7 versions out of date.

                "Not sure what 'cs3 not supported under windows 10' MEANS. The windows 10 software doesn't support cs3 or cs3 is not supported by adobe?" A very good point, as the word "support" is bandied around to mean different things.

                 

                1. Support = provide fixes for if it doesn't work. Not supported. Only CC2015 will have fixes provided, except that CS6 and later will have security fixes.

                 

                2. Support = will try to help with. No, Adobe won't help any more. It is LONG past "end of life".

                 

                3. Support = was designed to work with. Obviously not, it was finished long before Windows 10.

                 

                4. Support = tested against. No, crucially because of the above Adobe have not done any tests.

                 

                5. Support = manages to work with. This is the most difficult one. There may be various reasons why it doesn't work, and these aren't likely to be fully understood by the user community, and because of the above, Adobe people who might know more won't say. If it works, great. If it doesn't, our ability to help is limited. If you manage to solve anything, please let us know, you will be part of the supporting community.

                 

                6. Support = people in the community as a whole try to help. Sure, we do, but we don't have inside information; only the results people share with us. Very few of us will have first hand experience of trying to run such old stuff on new systems.
