    Installation problems


      Trying to install After Effects cs3 on Mac with Snow leopard os.

      But there are lots of problems.

      example: Adobe After Effects CS3 cannot be installed because it conflicts with:

          That may simply refer to a shared Adobe component liek the PDF handling, fonts, Bridge or whatever that may be on your system already. Thios could have been introduced by installing any other Adobe app. To fix it, you will probably have to use the CS3 Clean Script from the support pages before attempting a re-install. Your other issues may be related somehow, but definitely try to trash the prefs first in Users:You:Library:Preferences:Adobe:After Effects:8.0, then launch CS3 again. if the issue persists and no new, clean prefs are created, then it may be a specific 10.6 issue. I just can't help you. Due to the various reports about mishaps I have foregone upgrading for the time being...

            FYI, here's a link to a Technical Support document that tracks some issues with After Effects on Snow Leopard:
