If you are having problems installing Adobe Creative Suite 3 (CS3), you may want to check out the links below for additional information. This information came directly from Barry Hills (Sr. Director, Engineering and Program Mgmt, Creative Suites) via another thread here on my site. I am reposting it, and updating the other articles on this site to this information.

Uninstall Flash Player completely:

Make sure you have the right MacOS:

The “Help” page for installation related issues:

How to locate the installation log file:

I hope this information helps those individuals who are still struggling to install CS3. In spite of all of the problems I had installing CS3 myself, I’m glad I upgraded. I’ve really enjoyed how well the apps work together, so much so that I ended up buying InDesign CS3 as well.

Barry, thanks for the updated information, and for being proactive on this matter. You’re restoring my faith in Adobe.
