i disabled antivirus, antispyware, windows defender, and start up programs except microsoft products.
i was only able to install adobe onlocation cs3. i have problems with adobe premiere procs3 and adobe encore cs3. the installation starts with system check. it proceeds all the way to progress. when it's about 80% progress, it stops and i get the error message component installation failed. for both these products the only parts of the software that successfully got installed is the third party components.
i have a gateway MT6707 using windows vista home premium 32 bit. it has intel pentium Dual Core and a 2 gb memory and 130 gb hard drive. if the laptop does not meet system requirements, i will get an error message telling me that the computer did not meet the minimum requirements. i know this because i tried installing the software on my desktop but in this case, the laptop met the minimum requirements.
Ola, funny you had this problem, I experienced the
i exact same
thing last night.
I recently added 2 RAID arrays to my system and shuffled the drives around, and so I decided to format the machine and start fresh to avoid any conflicts.
I began installing software last night and ran into problems with Premiere & Encore but Onlocation installed fine, as you described it. I tried repeated attempts and it failed everytime much to my horror. I unistalled fonts, restarted, ran registry scanners, defragged, and I did most of what you described and nothing worked.
I have installed CS3 3 times prior to this so I know it works. I was getting frustrated and ready to post here. But I disabled my firewall (Comodo) before the installation and it worked!
it actually, and then it worked, not sure what the problem is but it worked and I was happy. I have just switched to Comodo after having endless crap with Agnitum Outpost, so I hope Comodo does not do the same.
I have XP Pro 32 bit so I am not sure if Vista would affect it, but I doubt it.
