Is the reason WGA?
Windows Genuine Advantage.
I don't gety it. What are you talking about?
You can only upgrade to SP3 with an officially licensed and activated version of Windows. WGA is used to check that.
I have an officially activated version of windows. This is not a licensing issue. This is a problem many peole experience. It has something do do with protection keys in the registry or administrative rights to override them. Some nonesense like that. Microsoft has a fix for it but the fix is bogus.
I had the same issue juju is talking about. Except the fix worked for me.
You don't need SP3. Things will work fine with SP2. You won't notice any difference whatsoever.
I have half a dozen PC at my office and the SP3 upgrade failed on one
and two others started having odd problems after. The rest were fine.
SP3 must have some hard to pin down incompatibilities somewhere along
Bottom line, no you don't require SP3 for Premiere. SP3 fixes and tweaks
a bunch of stuff, probably makes the system a little more efficient. So,
you would not want to avoid it for no reason. But for some, the choice
may be between the upgrade and how many hours they wish to spend
This leads me to problem number 2. When I updaded CS3 through the help menu, it installed the update but at some point told me it could not finish the installation. I pressed continue and it continued and now I have the update installed: version 3.2.0 (374). Am I on the latest version and should I worry about bugs from now on? This is very strange.
I had that happen on one of the upgrade machines. seems to be running
fine. I just chalk it up to more windows burps.
