Installing Adobe CS3 on Windows 7 - 64 bit
I finally was pushed into using Windows 7, hell might as well it is all leaning that way anyhow. My problem is I am attempting to install my trusty old copy of CS3 on Win7 and NO GO!!!
The error message received was. . . .
"F:\Adobe CS3\Setup.exe is not a valid Win32 bit Application"
No problem I thought I will just run it in compatibility mode like we did with XP, my computer reached out and slapped me, Properites window stopped responding.
Anyone got any hints or help for this issue, love to hear em.

You trying to install from CD? If so try copying the install files to the HDD and run from there.

try turning off UAC
you could try but i think you can install it on windows 7 x64 without a problem, if you have got windows 7 professional or ultimate then try installing Xp Mode: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...s-xp-mode.aspx but try turning off the uac or lowing the level of it

There's no need to turn off UAC. I have successfully installed CS3 Design Premium on Windows 7 x64 and all I did was right-click the Setup.exe and select "Run As Administrator". The only issue I did have was when the installer couldn't find AdobePDF.dll, but that is really easy to fix (click here for details).
The error message you are getting sounds a bit like the disc is damaged. Can you copy the files off of it to a folder on your HDD?

I tried copying all the files to my HD and glorious and behold, it worked. One nasty thing though the one copy I was originally trying was corrupted, I had to go to the box and use the real DVD to make it work. I always without fail, make a copy of any software I buy and never use the originals if at-all possible.
Thanks all for the advice, now I am going to post a new thread on getting games to run under Windows 7 - 64 bit on my laptop.
