Do your system specs meet the minimum requirements and the suggested requirements?
the only requirement i don't reach is the 2gb of ram. i have only 1gb of ram, but i don't see how that could be the problem for indesign because my techer had it for his newspaper class and his ram happened to be the same as mine. have any other ideas?
Start by giving your hardware specs, your OS and how you install, user rights, antivirus, and the like. You haven't told anything to help you.
Since you are asking here in the PR forum, I don't understand the relevancy of InDesign. Your question is about PR, right? It won't install because your system does not meet minimum requirements. That InDesign may need less memory is not relevant. BTW, there may be other components that also do not meet minimum requirements.
Sorry. Here they are
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium (Service Pack 1)
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80 GHz
Memory (RAM): 1.00 GB
System type: 32-bit OS
If there's something I'm missing, let me know. this is my first time posting a discussion on here.
First off, your memory does not meet requirements. Your CPU is still OK for DV, but not for HDV or anything more demanding. Your disks may be below requirements, but you haven't told what the setup is.
After you have added more memory and try again, make sure UAC is turned off, any anti-virus, anti-spam and similar software turned off and you are logged in as administrator before installing.
In my previous post you see a link. Click on it to see the requirements.
If you click on the link below, you will see why we want to know so much about your situation. You will find two additional links in that post that will lead you to the Wiki. In the Finally sections there are questions that need be answered for more video specific questions. It does not apply to your current questions, but I give you the links, so you can get acquainted will the kind of information needed to get help. The second link is more oriented towards troubleshooting hardware problems.
With RAM so cheap you should add 2GB more.
You can find cheap ram from $20 and up at Newegg
Also dont they have service pack 2 for vista out ?
I know this doesnt fix your install problems but adding that ram will make a huge difference.
I also have a Pentium 4 but mine is 3.4 GHz and im on Windows XP with 3GB RAM
Everything runs fine for SD and I can kinda do HDV.
You should be able to run PP but not great.
Hope you get it going.
Let us know if you get it going.
I dont know if this will help but Adobe has a clean script.
You can try it and see if it installs after it.
