On Windows 7? That's a beta product. If you want to use Windows 7 you can expect problems as the purpose of the beta test is to find problems. CS3 works well on Vista. If you need to work productively, use a released product, not a beta.
That said, I had the same error on Vista a couple of weeks ago. Something hung in Fireworks and not only would Fireworks not start, none of my other CS3 apps (on Vista) would start. I got the same error message in each. It is something in the licensing product that Adobe uses. I searched Google for the text of the error message and found a KB article that eventually got things working. http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=kb401528
I had to run the utility all three times, and then keep on going through the other steps of moving off file folders before my apps started working again. It was frustrating for the to stop working, like that, and I kept being disappointed at having to move on to the next "if that didn't work, do this." But at least they're working again!
hi man, excelent. you have just made my day. if we would ever meet, i will buy you a beer. after the patch Fireworks works perfectly.
