  • I opened PS3 and see a window "license for this product has stopped working". Help!

    I have the PS3.  A few months ago, I had an iMac 27 "10.11.2 opportunity and transferred my PS3 (plus any creative suite 3) top.  There was a window that says please register in 5 days or it will be inactive (or something like that). I did what I was supposed to do and have appreciated the help of PS3 on this new iMac.  Everything worked very well. Last night I shut down my computer before a separate software has been updated done and makes the iMac not able to start.  The only option I found was to erase the hard drive and install using Time Machine. (I use the bad terminalogy)   I did and everything was successful until I opened PS3 and see a window "license for this product has stopped working".  Help!  It is said one solution is to uninstall. When I went to the Adobe Uninstaller I saw NO PS3, but see icon with "Add or remove Adobe Creative Suite 3 Production Premium" with a small arrow, that I have the means to think his alias and I don't know where he lives. Can someone help me get back my PS3?  Thank you!

    Please stay on point and help me with my problem of PS3 and not encourage me to upgrade to what is current.  I have SP6 here, but want to keep the PS3 will.

    Thank you.


    Whenever you retrieve from a backup Time Machine, you will break licenses and need to run a repair. I know. I did it twice. As the instructions given in the doc to Adobe using own isn't enough for someone new to the procedure, I set up a screenshot guide.  Layout error 150:30 opening Photoshop cs4 on Macbook Pro

    If you go through this guide to screenshot and do exactly as indicated, you won't make those mistakes. Perhaps it would be good to read first. I carefully put in place this guide, my instructions are good in their current form, do not do anything else.

    In the first post #11, I forget to add a space after "sudo python" before you drag the to the command line, and I never load any type of break line or before you drag the script.

    Second: In #15 if you simply slide the script into the window, it will be on the same line.  What you see is the packing of command to work around the size of the window, but it is always on the same line and will run when you enter your password.

    You will also see that there is a space between "python" and the script in the screenshot.

    Again, if you are new to this, read first.

    Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
    Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
    Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
    Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
    Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
    each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
    presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
    in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
    manually by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
    Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
    older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
    get new manually if you wish.
