I have bought Adobe CS3 Design Premium. I wish to install it and eventually replace a hodgepodge of Adobe programs currently installed: Dreamweaver 8, along with Photoshop CS2, Illustrator CS1, and Adobe Acrobat 6 Standard CS1.

What uninstall and install sequence would be advised?
(1) Install over existing programs without uninstalling (to keep configuration data)? , or
(2) Uninstall some or all existing, then do clean install?

I am experiencing difficulties when trying to uninstall/reinstall my adobe product. At the beginning of the month, I had some issues with the activation which caused the program to lock me out. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program thinking that may help it, but alas nothing changed. Had to call adobe to deactivate my serial.

Long story short, the adobe help center rectified the problem with my serial. Supposedly anyway. I have no way to test it because my current installation of photoshop is corrupt due to this licensing mishap. The only way is to start fresh and install the program again.

This is where the hitch is. As I previously mentioned, I was able to reinstall the program once without issue. Now, I can't even run the installer from the DVD. A window stating "Setup is initializing" appears, then quickly disappears. Nothing happens afterwards. Also, I am unable to remove the program from windows. The entry is there in "Programs and Features," however selecting the option to uninstall it does absolutely nothing. No window appears or anything.

The problem seems to only be with the adobe installer. I can remove my other applications and install new ones just fine. It's just for some reason Windows refuses to run the Adobe setup now. It doesn't make sense. The disc is not scratched at all and has never been stored outside its case. I'm at a complete loss what to do next. I can't remove it and I can't reinstall it.

Hi, I'm having trouble uninstalling my Adobe Reader 7.0
When I go into control panel and go to unistall it, this message comes up.
"The windows installer service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance."
I have also tried going into C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Setup Files\RdrBig\ENU_\setup.exe.
But the last piece isn't there, so it can only go to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Setup Files\RdrBig\ENU_

I've tried searching the web a bit and using programs that say they will help you. Though once I want them to do something, I have to pay, so I'm looking for a free, easy way to do this.

Everytime I try to remove it it says, "Error 1402. Could not open key; (insert long string of characters here). Verify that you have sufficient access to that key or contact your support personnel.

There was no CLSID. Is there any way to get that certain key back or a way to reinstall Adobe Reader 7? That way maybe I can uninstall it after everything is back again? Or just a way to get CLSID back? Anyone?

A:[SOLVED] Cannot uninstall Adobe Reader 7

There are two ways you can do this. I'll start with the simplest. That is to use the Windows Installer Clean Up utility. If you have this already it will be in your Program Files directory on your main drive. If it's not there, you can download it from here. If you've already got or after you've downloaded and installed it, in the WICU directory you will find a file called msicuu.exe. Run this file and it will open a drop-down box of installed programs. Acrobat should be at the top. Selct it and click remove. If that doesn't work, you will have to use the manual method described by Adobe here. This is a much more complicated way and involves editting the registry. Before you do make sure you make a backup of your registry, first by creating a System Restore point and second, by opening the registry by pressing Start>Run and typing regedit in the box and pressing OK. When the registry editor is open select File>export and save the registry, preferably to another hard disc or to a floppy disc. Good luck.

I'm using Firefox, maybe that is part of my problem here:

I upgraded to Acrobat 8.1.2 on my XP Pro, but it won't work. I tried to uninstall it in Add or Remove Programs, it looks for a file that does not exist (an installer file) and won't uninstall. I tried to use Windows Clean-up. Selected 8.1.2 to remove, but it's still there.

I can't print any PDF files (and my printer is also on the fritz - see my other post) so I'm in a real pickle. I have to somehow get some documents off the web asap, and I can't do it!!!

I remember reading somewhere (after the fact) that you need to uninstall any older versions of Acrobat on your computer before installing 8.1.2., which, of course, I didn't.

I've heart mention of another pdf reader called Foxit, but I don't know anything about it.

If someone is knowledgable about pdf readers, please give me pros/cons about both, I use other Adobe products just fine, and this is the very first time I have every encountered a problem with Acrobat. For years, it ran just quiety and without error until I upgraded to 8.1.2.

Am I doomed to never use Adobe acrobat again because they've buggered up their newest versions? My preference is to fix my install and use the new Adobe, but if it's a goner, then I need to know about other alternatives (Foxit, whatever). I hate to go to something new and then have issues of compatability with it, too.

Please, ideas / suggestions?

Hello,

I am relatively new to graphic design and imaging, but I have a question regarding my use of Adobe Illustrator CS3 and Adobe Photoshop CS3.

I have designed a logo in Adobe Illustrator CS3, and saved it as both an ".AI" file and an ".EPS" file.

Now, when I open the ".EPS" file in Adobe Photoshop CS3, it appears that the bright cyan (it's a white logo with one of the characters in bright cyan) is duller than what it seemed to be in Adobe Illustrator CS3.

Does anyone know why this would be, and what I can do to stop it?

[Ok, let me try typing this all over again. Another, separate problem: this POS Vista laptop's wireless keeps arbitrarily disconnecting. 'Back to Cat 5 cable, dammit. Anyway...]

There's a persistent problem I've been unable to solve after roughly a year since it first appeared. When I check Secunia PSI's reports I'm finding old versions of Adobe Flash Player listed as "Insecure" and "Update scheduled" - which will not uninstall with Adobe's own uninstall tool.

I went through a closed thread here at Techguy.org on the subject and went through the procedure described - basically downloading and running the Adobe Flash Uninstaller found here:
http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html

After rebooting into Safe Mode and running the Flash uninstall tool (multiple times, just out of anal-retentive thoroughness,) I rebooted into standard mode. On opening Secunia PSI - but before running a scan - the list of insecure programs shows Adobe Flash Player 9.x, which hadn't even been there previously. After running the Flash Uninstaller again from standard mode, then running a new PSI scan, the 9.x version is no longer there but in its place is... 10.x (NPAPI), which when I click PSI's Scan Results detail page lists it as 10.0.32.18 (NPAPI).

This occurs regardless of whether or not I've got the current version of Adobe Flash installed on top of it all.

A:Uninstall Adobe Reader XI (11.0.6) won't uninstall/remove pop-up loop persists

Hello, and welcome to Bleeping Computer.
 
The error is occuring because the installer is looking for files in a temp folder that are no longer there.
 
Extra care is needed with this tool. Download Microsoft Installer Cleanup.  Run it in an admin account and only select Adobe Reader XI if it is in the list (If it is not in the list exit out) and then press the remove button making absolutely sure no other programs other than Adobe Reader is selected. Then I would try reinstalling Adobe Reader again.
 
I would recommend that you do not constantly uninstall and install the program.

A:[SOLVED] Adobe Flashplayer won't install

You should first know there's an Internet Explorer version and there's a Firefox version of Flash Player, and they're independent of each other.

Whichever browser you use, go here to test if your flash player is installed correctly.
http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/
When you get there, you may get a popup prompting you to install shockwave (ignore it and click 'don't install')
After a couple of moments, you should see the flash box that goes "create, see, about". Click on about. If it's installed properly it should say "Version 9,0,124,0 installed successfully"

If not, then install it manually. For the internet explorer version, go to this page
http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/view...9166&sliceId=2
and scroll down to where it says "Download and unzip Install_Flash_Player_9_ActiveX.zip"
Click on download, extract, and run the installer.
For Firefox, just go to http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/downl...ShockwaveFlash using Firefox.
Once those installs, just check as mentioned above. If the videos still display those messages, either they're wrong, or they're the kind that talk you into installing malware. Don't download flash from any place other than the macromedia/adobe site.

I got flash player to install for mozilla (which wont work for the streaming program). But when I have pandora open in full screen, if I try to drag it to my other monitor it will drop the tab and re maximize it. Like it's hard to explain but there is definitely something wrong with it.

I've spent a LOT of time looking up this answer, and no luck so far. I go to download flash player 11.3 from adobe, and it downloads fine. I open the download (does the same with admin privileges) and it tells me my security settings prevent the file from being downloaded.

To me this suggested my internet settings were screwed up, so I went to control panel and reset them, then set it to medium high security with option to download files set to enable. This did not work and it seems like the only solution Adobe and anyone else suggests. Right now my work around was installing flash add-ons for firefox through the firefox add-ons menu and I can watch youtube videos, and use flash apps. yes internet explorer still has no flash, and sometimes my computer will stop responding and then when I restart windows explorer, the flash player symbol shows up on an application tab with no title and no options when I right click it.

I am logged on as administrator. I have also tried in safe mode but receive the message, system adminisrator has set policies to prevent this installation. I would appreciate any advice.

I even did a reformat the try to fix it... Still doesn't work...

Any help? It just says that it cannot install..
 

A:Solved: Adobe Master Collection will not install.

Well, seeing as you just bought (or more likely illegally downloaded off TPB) $2500 of software from them, I'm sure Adobe would be more than happy to help you, just give them a call.

Many websites I use (bank, credit card companies, Nextiva fax) keep telling me I need to install latest version of Flash Player. Finally managed to get it downloaded and a message saying "install successful." Ver 12 is listed in programs. However, I still get the message "latest version of flash player required--download here." I click the link but nothing happens. Since it is already installed that seemed to make sense.
I run Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and prefer to use IE (latest version) or Firefox. In the past I had Google Chrome installed but it seemed to cause various problems with my PC. Once I uninstalled Chrome all my problems went away.
I am running Bitdefener Anti-Virus Plus. HELP !

Windows XP Home SP3 on a PC

My Adobe Flash Player wasn't working in IE7 or Firefox so I followed the instructions on this forum to remove it and re-install but all that I keep getting is the installer and not the Flash Player itself.
I also saw mentioned not to use the installer but I don't know how to avoid that.
Every link that I follow from this forum takes me to the installer.

Please show me where the Flash Player is to get just that.
Also - if I need to use the installer which one is the right one (I see 2 different ones.)

And - while I'm asking - do I also need the Adobe Shockwave and where do I get that?
Thanks!

Howdy folks,
Many programmes I go into say Adobe Flash Player is required.
I have spent many hours trying to install this required programme, but no matter which way I try, the following notice always comes up on my screen.

THIS PROGRAMME HAS BEEN BLOCKED - YOUR ADMINISTRATOR SET POLICY TO BLOCK THIS PROGRAMME - ADOBE SYSTEMS INCORP. - UNTRUSTED PUBLISHER.

I have tried to install Adobe Flash Player with Windows Firewall disabled - I have set the control to ALLOW this programme on my Norton Antivirus software and I have also disabled my user account control, but the same notice always appears.

I am using the administrator account on my computer, and thought as such, I should be able to allow or disallow programmes...apparently not...Help!

Bearing in mind I am a senior citizen who has just about got to grips with using a computer, if you can help, replies using the simplest of terms would be much appreciated - thank you

I am running Windows Vista

A:[SOLVED] Unable to install Adobe flash player...HELP!

I'm not on Vista right now, so I can't check if this works, but this applies to XP.
On XP Pro, run group policy (start, run, then type gpedit.msc). Navigate to "User Configuration", "Administrative Templates", "Windows Components", "Internet Explorer", "Administrator Approved Controls". If you double click Shockwave Flash, you can set the policy to enabled or disabled.
I can't tell if that would work on Vista, but you can try; and XP Home doesn't have group policy.

Recently tried to start using Mozilla Firefox. Went to Pandora radio. Message there read upgrade browser or Adobe Flash player. So I tried and I think I just needed to install a plug in for firefox. What I did was uninstall flash player and tried to start over. Now I have tried using the flash player uninstaller and retrying to install, and it always gets to about 7% and stops. I get a message saying cannot locate verifiable source. Any help on this problem will be appreciated.

I need to run this to play videos etc sent to me on Facebook and youtube videos but whenever I download and install it, I'm still alerted that I don't have the latest version.

I've installed it numerous times now and get the successful install message on the Adobe website but it's still not having it. I've rebooted too after each installation

Anyone know what the problem could be???

I can't seem to install Adobe Flash Player or ActiveX.
I was able to download the .exe file using Firefox but couldn't do it when I was using Internet Explorer.
So I obviously isntalled Adobe but I don't think it's properly working. The next thing I would like to do is upgrade my computer because I have no service pack but I don't have ActiveX. I can't seem to find any site that uses it so that I get the prompt to download it.

Will ActiveX come with Adobe, or is ActiveX from Microsoft?
If no, then how can I download ActiveX and Adobe?

Hi. For the past week I have run into problems viewing several websites that I/my kids frequent due to a notice that I need to install the new Adobe Flash Player. I bet I have installed it 8 or 10 times, it says it is successful, but when I try to access the website again, I get the same message. The version I seem to have on my system is the same version I have been attempting to download, but something apparently isn't getting registered. Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong? I feel crippled--one of the websites I can't get to is one I need for work...

Hello,
Hoping you can help us help our out of state college student with a problem. She needs Adobe 9 on her laptop (Dell inspiron 1525). However, she can't completely uninstall the Adobe 8.1.2. It gets part way through the uninstall and stops the process.

We thought if she downloaded Adobe 9 it would auto update the 8.1.2 but even that didn't work.
It is hard, of course, being long distance and trying to help over the phone. She has Vista OS and we have XP so aren't that familiar with Vista.

There is an IT department at her college so can go to but can't get there til end of week.

Appreciate any and all advise/guidance given. It would certainly decrease her frustration to get this working again!

Thanks,
aklindarn

Hi there,

### SOLVED (throught Windows Repair) ###

I do have massive problems uninstalling and (subsequently had and have problems) installing the Adobe CS4 Design Standard Edition.
Not only on Windows 7 x64, but even before on Vista Business x64 and Vista Enterprise x32. It pretty much didn't really work a long time at all on any OS. Only on Vista Business x64 it worked a very short time. It is really frustrating, almost disgusting that I paid a lot of money for this software and haven't really been able to really use it every since!

Procedure:
I tried of course uninstalling it normally (via CCleaner), failed. I used the Adobe CS3 CleanScript on "level 4" as advised (by mail support), but it doesn't help.

Of course I also called the (US-) Adobe phone support from Germany (costly when call-by-call is blocked by your ISP -.-) twice and they are just unable to cope or even properly understand my case. (Could be a callcenter somewhere abroad? -.-) They just said, "Windows 7 is not supported", that was it. Then I gave up calling them. (Maybe that all is the cause for this letter?)
Other notes:
I opened several cases on the Customer support portal and also asked on GetSatisfaction, but it just goes so slowly, it is driving one nuts. The point is, I do definitely need Adobe Acrobat + InDesign and I don't want to constantly mess around with demo software of Adobes competitors or the limited free PDF-XChange Viewer software! You might of course understand... Read more

I'm trying to uninstall Adobe Reader 8.1.2. It is just taking up space and I've updated to the latest version. However, I get this message: "Error applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform paths are valid". I suppose it isn't hurting me to have it on my PC, but everytime I run Secunia PSI, it wants me to "patch" that version.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

If you can open the reader itself, click on help and then select Detect and repair. If you can't open it, you should be able to install over Adobe Reader 7.
