Are you running the install with administrative privileges?
I have CS2 and the CS4 upgrade fails. I get the "loading setup" screen for a second and then the install hangs. I cannot get the thing uninstalled either. I have gone over the list of requirements and install issues and cannot find a solution.
Any help is appreciated.
Well I downloaded the CS4 trial, everything was complete except for Photoshop, and I can't get it to open.
Bret: I can tell you have a problem with one of your fonts, which may be working in other apps, but Adobe products are more critical of fonts.
So what should I do?
You need to remove all the installed fonts except for the system fonts, then start PS, if the message is gone, then load 50% of your fonts back and start PS, if the message is there then it is in that group, so start removing the fonts until it stops.
Labourious yes, but it appears to be the only way.
So where can I find them and what font should I remove?
"System Fonts"? You mean OpenType files? Also how do you load 50% back?
Okay never mind about the fonts, now about the English Language Pack.
Never mind. I manually uninstalled PS CS4. Here's how I done it on Vista:
1. Click Start.
2. Click on the "Start Search" bar and type in "regedit", then hit Enter.
3. Click continue.
4. Follow this!
5. Delete the key file.
Now to reinstall:
1. No need to download both the .7z and .exe. Just find the Photoshop setup application. (search for it if you forgot where the file is)
It works completely. Send me a message if it doesn't work.
Bret Thank you. you solved one of my problems.
I downloaded Photoshop CS4 here and i tried to install as trial (30 days), Error: "Please insert Photoshop C4 into drive E:/ to continue instalation" what's wrong? What should I do? To install free trial? Tks
I have been using Adobe Photoshop CS4 for a few months now without any problems or errors.
But last week.. i had a virus problem and decided to do a Clean Installation of my Operating System.
I was not too worried because I have done this millions of times already... and know the process like the back of my hand.
Well.. after the clean installation was complete, i started to load my applications.
To my surprise.. Adobe Photoshop CS4 would not install. Nor would Adobe Illustrator CS4.
It would get to the screen "Adobe is beginig the installation process" and would stall ..
At first... i thought it would eventually complete on it's own.. but after a few attempts and hours of the same screen with no progress.. it was obvious Adobe was no longer responding at that stage.
I searched high and low, night and day, over a few days trying to figure out the problem.
I was trouble-shooting everything.
In the middle of trouble-shooting, i took a break to surf the Net and see if i could find any suggestions when i ran into this Forum.
Someone mentioned disabling your Internet Security & Windows Defender.. and i thought.. no way.. it can't be that easy.
Well.. what do you know.. it was my Internet Security (Kaspersky Internet Security 2010)
After disabling Kaspersky Internet Security 2010, Adobe flew right pass the part where it was stalling, and finished installation without incident.
Adobe Illustrator CS4 also installed without any problems ...
I just wanted to share my experience as i know how frustrating it can be when software refuses to install.
Good Luck to everyone.. be patient.. trial & error. .. and im sure you'll figure it out.

I had a similar problem when i extracted the contents of my Adobe DVD and made an ISO file out of it so i would no longer need the DVD for installation.
But what i realized is that.. Adobe will not install if it's installed from the ISO.. and during installation.. an error would pop up.. and ask for the DVD
You probably have done something similar.
Here's what i did to fix:
- Extract the contents of Adobe Photoshop CS4 into a Folder
- and install from that ..
After i extracted the contents and installed from "setup.exe" .. the installation completed without error ..
- If you're having problems from the DVD .. then try to extract the Contents of the DVD on to your Desktop..
and install from there ..
- As for the Trial you are referring to .. im not familiar with it ..
but try to extract the contents of it to your Desktop .. and go from there ..
