I've had the CS3 web premium suite since 2007, but I've always had problems with Flash, though it's never been a huge problem until now. I don't know for sure, but I suspect there might be a problem with the disk, so I'm trying to see if I can fix the problem by downloading the Flash CS3 trial and activating it with my CS3 suite key. I downloaded the trial and it installed corrected as far as I can tell, but it keeps rejecting my key, saying that it's not valid, even though the CS3 suite is already activated on my computer and, even if it wasn't recognizing that, I still have one activation left. And I did make sure I typed it in correctly.
I also tried looking for a complete CS3 suite trial, but that doesn't seem to exist anymore.
Anyone familiar with this problem or have any ideas?
The only thing I have to offer is my notes regarding where I looked to solve my need to reinstall CS3. I do not know if this applies to your situation or not, but in my case, the license suddenly seemed to end after years of using it and I was unable to reinstall. Following the first item listed below led to a solution (I believe)...
Reinstall CS3 - when normal fails

I don't think that's the problem. The installer works fine, both for the trial and for the copy on the CS3 suite disk, and I know the license is still active because I successfully activated it on a different computer a couple days ago (not on the trial. I was testing my copy of Flash on my parents' computer to see if the problems I'm having happen on a computer with Windows 7 and more RAM [which they did]). Thanks anyway, though.
