I bought CS3 and tried to update Camera Raw to 4.6 but got error message on installation. I installed manually according to website instructions but I still cannot open RAW files. I get the error message saying it is 'the wrong type of document'. Camera is Nikon D5000. Is there any solution to this problem - I am assuming it is because the computer is 64 bit. Help would be much appreciated.
That camera was not supported until ACR 5.4, which does NOT run with CS3. It has nothing to do with 64 bit or 32 bit.
You will never be able to open raw files from that camera in CS3 directly. You need to download the free Adobe DNG converter 6.2 and use it to convert your raw Nikon files to raw DNG files first, which you can then proceed to open in ACR 4.6 hosted by CS3.

Thanks, I'll certainly give that a try. I had been led to believe that Adobe DNG converter does not work with 64 bit. Thanks for your help.
