It can be a challenge to install CS3 on a newer computer because it was designed for use on Microsoft Windows XP and Vista 32-bit operating systems.  You can check this link to check systems, it is designed to work:

    Hi guys,.
    It seems that my problem is solved.
    I removed a lot of the years of updates then run my drive setup and turned off and went to bed.
    When I turned on this morning I had to install updates. It was the only thing I was worried, and as this seems to be fixed, I am glad I use Firefox as my browser.

    I installed Speccy and he ran and it shows as running windows updates and it works correctly.

    Thanks a lot for all your help guys.

  • I have Word on my old computer with the update of Windows 10 and documents located in Acrobat.

    I have MS Word on my old PC with the upgrade of Windows 10. I transferred a document to my new PC and when I try to open the doc with Adobe Acrobat I get a message that it cannot be opened. My new PC has Windows 10 family as the operating system. I have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC on my new PC. Why Acrobat won't open and allow me to edit the doc? Do I need a different Acrobat?

    Adobe Reader does not allow to edit PDFs. Newer versions of Word can open PDF files and convert in Word for editing. What are the versions of Word and Acrobat Reader you are using. Many items are specific version.

    Acrobat is a sold computer program be Adobe not a file of type format.

    PDF is the file type read only Acrobat (paid product) or Adobe Reader (free product).

  • Java installers and Remover will not open

    Hello! I have a problem with my Dell XPS M1330. I finally managed to run properly after factory restore, but it came with all the software installed on it in 2007. He had jre 6 installed above, and I deleted it, for safety, with the intention to install jre 8. I downloaded jre 8 online and offline, and they open at all. I deleted my temporary files, they always opens. The java removal tool opens either. Other applications that I have installed, as Firefox and office open up very well without any problems. It's just java. I tried using online and offline and not and same admin removal tool. But none of the java applications will start. Any suggestions? If you're wondering, I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium. I'm sure it's updates, but I keep getting updates one or both. I don't know if I have Service pack two or not. Thank you!

    I think I've solved the problem! If anyone else has this problem, I recommend you update your software through Windows Update and accessing Microsoft Web site and install Windows Vista SP1, and Windows Vista SP2. After that, the installation of java program worked well!

    Hello GIS_Person,

    Thank you for using the Microsoft answers Forum

    Is this a recent installation of Word or this facility has been working properly for a long time? What is the version of Office 2003 or Office 2007 Word? You have recently installed another program that could interfere with the functionality of Word? You could try to save all your Word documents, make sure you have the product key and the available media and then uninstall and then reinstall the program to see if that solves the problem. Have you tried to open documents on another machine and see if you get the same response from the file?

    You can also try a system restore to an earlier point, who could return to a time before the problem occurred. I am including the instructions below to access the system restore.

  • Windows 8 Photos App, calendar, messaging, and SkyDrive will not open

    Windows 8 App Photos opens and closes immediately if started from subway tile interface.

    If I try to open any picture or video with the Photos App, I get the message:
    "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file.  You will not have the appropriate
    permissions to access the item.
    Other image programs work (Paint, Windows Media Player, Windows Photo Viewer, etc..) and can display the pictures and videos.
    While troubleshooting the problem, I have tried several things and noticed some other applications of Windows 8 also not open, including calendar, messaging and applications SkyDrive also do not open (they try to open and close immediately).
    It's on a new installation of Windows 8, which replaced a Windows 7 installation, with nothing recorded, from a SSD drive.  Everything seemed to work so I started to install software and data, when I noticed the problem with the Photos App.  I installed Windows Media Center, Office 2010, Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 and some small programs and applications.
    When it is started in safe mode, open the Photos App produces the following message is displayed:
    "This application cannot open.

    I'm open to ideas.

    This behavior has emerged in the last days and the problem is that Kaspersky has marked these apps as "not reliable."


    (1) open the 'Applications updates' section of Kaspersky Security Intrernet. A new window will open.

    (2) in the dropdown in the top left corner, select 'all '.

    (3) in the search box of the appearance of the upper right corner (the one with the magnifying glass) to Skydrive, calendar, Chat, or any other application does not.

    (4) 'files' (with extension *.html and a few others) will appear. These files will be marked with a red circle and the text 'Not reliable' (or something similar) or with a yellow circle and the text 'Minimum restricted' (or something similar)

    (5) select with the mouse each of these files (one by one) that appeared in your search and press the secondary button. A new menu will appear with the option "move group". Inside this option, you need to tell the program that you want to move each of these files to the Group of "reliable." A few seconds later, you will see how the red circle turns green.

    (6) run your mosaic application. It should work perfectly.

    Kind regards.
