    Problem with Studio MX

    BarryB64
      I am a registered user of Studio MX. When I brought it, I was dreaming of starting a web design business and it morphed into an online magazine. Both went nowhere.

      Now, I'd like to just create a personal site containing stories that'd be a source of insspiration and encouragement. I'm not looking to start a business.

      Here is what happened this morning. I went to install Studio MX and Fireworks MX (6.0), Flash 6.0 and Freehand MX installed fine. When it came time for Dreamweaver, I was informed that a file on the installation CD was corrupt. Oh goody! :( I had brought the software in 2002. I don't think the sofware is supported, any more.

      I asked about upgrading to Studio 8; as I don't have $399 for Web Standard - The CS3 version.

      I have a fixed income and limited resources.

      What are my options?

          Hmm - not sure. Have you cleaned the CD and tried again?

            try a cd cleaner. The files on the cd aren't corrupt, but the drive is
            having a problem reading them.

              A dirty DVD drive? I might've guessed.

              As it happens, I have two DVD drives. I popped the Studio MX into the DVD Burner and it installed nicely. It only complained on one help file. Otherwise, the app loaded nicely.

              The DVD ROM unit was installed in 2003 and the burner was put in in 2006. I never gave thought to cleaning these two drives.

              Thaks for the help.

              As for upgrading, the only component that I'd like to upgrade is Fireworks 6. I'm quite content with Dreamweaver MX, Freehand and barely use Flash.

              The only gripe I have about Fireworks MX is its animation capabilities. It just seems more complicated then I'd want. Here is my existing website: http://www.bethberakah.com It should serve as a model of what I'm looking to do. With this in mind, how is Photoshop Elements?

                Please update DMX6.0 to DMX6.1 as soon as you can - the updater is on the
                Adobe site.

                  I'd highly recommend it. I have used it for years because big brother Photoshop
                  was too expensive and for me as a hobbyist it is really overkill. Photoshop
                  Elements did all I want and much more. (I have the full Photoshop now only
                  because it came with the CS3 package, but am still learning). Another good
                  thing about Elements: they have very active, friendly and helpful forums.
