Which is exactly what you will have to do. CS3 so far is the only version tested and approved to run under Vista. All other versions simply cannot correctly handle the enhanced security routines, user management and different system folder structure.
getting the same overrun message on XP proffesional. had to reinstall because of computer crash and now when i open ae7 the tip of the day box comes up with nothing in it. when i try to start new comp it gives an overrun message
More details, please. What processor? How much RAM? After the crash and re-install, ddid you run al the Windows Updates? Did you install other software? Sounds like you are missing a critical system DLL or it is of a wrong version. Check the usual suspects - MSVC redistributables, .NET runtime 1.1, MediaPlayer updates etc. ...
