What error message do you get?
Thank you Pixlor.
No error messages appear. It just can't open old files and my new works can not be saved.
Can you try updating the CS3 version from here http://www.adobe.com/support/fireworks/downloads_updaters.html
CS3 had a patch release which might help.
If it doesnot solve the issue, can you send us more details? Are you the admin for your system? Has this behavior started recently with Win 7 or after your upgrade you have never been able to work in Fireworks CS3?
Thank you Sarthak,
I downloaded the patch and the problem continues. I will give you the maximum details about my fireworks. I have a copy of Fireworks CS3 in my flashdrive provided with licence from my school to be used in homework task. I have a desktop with XP...in that pc I can open the application directly from my flashdrive or from a copy I did of fireworks CS3 on my desktop in that pc, and all the application works fine. I can do exactly the same from another Laptop with windows vista, and everything is working fine as well.
What I trying to do now is open the same application Fireworks CS3 from my flashdrive or from a copy I did on my desktop in another different Laptop with just one week new coming with windows 7. I can open the application directly from my desktop icon or from my flasdrive, BUT after that, I can't open files or save my new work....even when I close the application, a window shows up asking me if I want to save my work, and if I click YES, it still doesn't allow me, because when I try to close the application again, the same message shows up. Even worse, sometimes the application closes by itself without any command.
I opened the Fireworks 'properties' to set Compatibility with window XP SP3, and didn't work, the same problems remains. That is what I can tell you for now. Thank you.
Might be that Fireworks CS3 can't open from flash drive in Win7? I hope Sarthak will help you better than me, this is just a guess...
was any solution found to this? i am having the EXACT same problem. I have tried changing the compatibilty and also opening as admin and nothing works. i just upgraded to windows 7 and use fireworks cs3 all the time.
An answer would be great
