I guess you didn't scroll down on the page where you downloaded it from?
To install with Adobe Creative Suite 3 or Photoshop CS3:
1. Exit Photoshop CS3.
2. Open My Computer.
3. Double-click Local Disk (C:).
4. Navigate to: (Please read directory carefully)
Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\CS3\File Formats
5. Move the existing Camera Raw.8bi plug-in to another location (for example, a new folder on your desktop). Ensure you keep this version in case you need to revert back.
6. Copy the Camera Raw plug-in, Camera Raw.8bi, from the download into the same folder as Step 4.
7. Launch Photoshop CS3 or Adobe Bridge.
Note: If generic camera thumbnails appear in Adobe Bridge, follow these steps:
1. Check to make sure the plug-in was installed in the correct directory in step 4 above.
2. Start Bridge.
3. Choose Tools > Cache > Purge Central Cache.
Important: Purging the Central Cache deletes cached thumbnail information for all folders. It also deletes labels, ratings, and rotation settings for read-only files (for example, files on a CD or locked files) or file formats that don't have XMP support.
P.S. In addition to "Thanks", this is the site I downloaded it from:
I don't see any instructions here, even with scrolling down.
How come I didn't find under "Search" the identical file, even when revealing all Hidden and Protected files? What's going on with Vista, that finding files is so difficult?
I don't know why it seems to be beyond Adobe's programs to do something so
very simple and that is create a setup routine that puts the new .8bi file
in the proper place, copy the converter program to a folder in Program
Files\DNG Converter and put an icon for it on the desktop. It amazes me that
Adobe can't seem do something so simple.
The installation of ACR can be automatic and intervention=free ... simply go to the 'help' menu in PS. The DNG converter is however free and stand-alone -- personally I don't mind that Adobe doesn't presume where it should be.
my CA$0.02 :)

Which is fine when the Adobe updater is working, which is not always.
>and when I do a Find in my Vista, there is no other Camera Raw.8bi apparently on my system.
Evidently the Find function in Vista is as unreliable as Spotblight in Mac OS X. :/
I use the free EasyFind on my Mac and have disabled Spotblight permanently and completely. Check Version Tracker for a comparable Windows version.
