Can't install photoshop cs3 on Vista no matter what!! pls help. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I have dug around for solutions and I have tried several suggestions, but no matter what I can't install adobe photoshop CS3 on Vista.
    It always hangs during installation on the screen "installing shared components"

    I have tried turning UAC on and off. Have tried "running as admin" , have turned cbscript and jscript ON, and still have the same problem.

    I did try to identify where it was hanging up with Process Explorer. But I really don't know how to see what happens during the setup process.

    Please, could you try to help me? Any suggestions?

    Thanks so much
