CS3 will not run under Windows 10.
It's time to upgrade to Creative Cloud software by subscription.
That's very disappointing. I didn't ask Windows 10 to be installed and now that has cost me the use of my perfectly functioning Photoshop & InDesign. Not to mention all the time I have had to spend.
Let’s back up for second.
CS3 most certainly is not supported under Windows 10 but you may be able to get it to work.
First things first. Contact Adobe again. Do not mention the Windows 10 thing. Tell them your harddrive crashed and you can’t activate the software. And when you do get it activated right click the InDesign.exe file and run it under Windows 7 compatibility.
If you can’t get help, let us know. Only Adobe personnel can help with activation issues.
Sounds good. Thanks. I've had enough of them today. I'll try again tomorrow.
