So i bought Vista Ultimate 64 bit, installed it no issues ran all the updates i could find ect..
Also bought Office 2007 and Photoshop CS3.
No issues installing Office however i am trying to install Photoshop.
When i put my disk in it loads normally i get the "Adobe Setup Installer" and it goes to install two programs i assme it needs to install photoshop it installs "Adobe Anchor Service CS3" with no issues shows the green check mark but then trys to install "Adobe Asset Services CS3" but gets a "Component install failed"
At this point i click finish and nothing happens.. No more install. So i take the disk out put it back it starts up asks me to do the reinstall and does the same crap all over.
I spent 3 hours on the phone with Adobe who claim i meet the requirements for the software, claim i have the nessary updates installed.. and have now burshed me off to Microsoft, claiming its an OS issue and the dink i was on the phone with suggested i reinstall my OS and suggested that it could be an issue with my RAID0 Setup.
Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong here?? I deal with Microsoft often at work and don't want to spend the rest of my night on the phone with there tech support if i dont have to.
