I am just learning Fireworks cs3 with a tutorial which is now requiring that I use Adobe Flash CS3 Professional. Being a beginner I am not certain if this is an extension download or do I have to purchase a program. There does not seem to be phone support-they just directed me to this forum. I realize that this is an older version. Am I just supposed to download Extension Manager 1.8 for Windows? I have Vista Windows. I am confused between software programs and extensions.
CS3 is an archived product. You will have to download the trial version of Flash CS5 Pro which gives you 30 days to try
the software after which you will be required to purchase it or uninstall it. If you plan on doing more web design work such as with Dreamweaver then I would recommend investing in one of the Creative Suite bundles.
