Yesterday I received my so much awaited CS3 Master Jedi (I hope it’s a good sign for my exams). Full of joy I inserted the first DVD and launched the setup … and nothing happened, not even an error, just nothing (imagine the frustration).
Hopefully the solution is the same as I already wrote about using the single trial software, only a few more steps are required.
So here are the 4 steps: do it carefully, but here you got a working solution:
- To begin uninstall all the previous Adobe stuff on your drive, Adobe released an uninstaller doing this very well. They offer two levels but in fact there are 4 (level 4 will erase Adobe and Macromedia stuff)
- Uninstall done? Great, now we need to have sufficient right to do the installation, simply run the command prompt (as an Administrator) and type in “
- Turn your anti-virus and firewall off, who said that security and user friendliness wasn’t compatible?
- Launch the setup.exe from the DVD, and it should work, now just wait that the 4 DVDs get installed (I’m writing this post, smoking a cigar and drinking a Pastis 😉 )
Now you just have to install the add-ons contained in the Master Suite.
Enjoy great Adobe stuff now!
