I have been having some difficulties with my system lately.
Programs have been unexpectedly quitting -- especially CS2 and now
Fireworks and Flash (Studio MX 2004). I am running System 10.3.9 on
a G-4, because I frequently use Classic mode, primarily so I can
run Office 2001 apps (particularly Word) and an old Umax Scanner,
which functions as a plugin to Photoshop 4.0.
At any rate, I tried running Norton and System Utilities
without any success. So, I decided to reinstall the system, using
the Archive method to preserve my Previous System. Ever since then,
I am unable to launch either Flash or Fireworks. I have tried
several times to uninstall and reinstall, each time without
success. I reinstalled version Studio MX, and both of those loaded
and are running fine. I was hoping once I reloaded them and ran
them, that when I reloaded the 2004 versions they, too, would run.
They do not.
I know there are various files from the programs strewn
throughout the system in Library and User folders, etc., but I do
not know where all of them are or even what to do with them should
I find them.
Does anyone have any suggestions of what I can do in order to
get Fireworks and Flash back in operating order?
