View Full Version : Photoshop cs3 help needed !!

27-09-2009, 10:32am
Technical help needed with CS3. Mongo uninstalled it with a view to later reinstalling it. However, he now finds out that you MUST DEACTIVATE IT BEFORE UNINSTALLING IT. The instructions are ridiculous - they tell you about doing this AFTER they talk about uninstalling it.

How can I reload the program from the original Adobe CD or from my other computer that still has it installed. The license is for 2 computers and they have both been operating corrected for nearly a year before Mongo uninstalled it from one othe computers yesterday. Tried going back to "restore point in time" to one week earlier - no help - says it has a license failure in the "AMT".

Mongo is going out for a while to get over the frustration before he performs an ELVIS (with a suitably sized gun) on his monitor. Hope there may be help when he looks in on AP later. Thanks people.

I think if you call Adobe on Monday, there is a reasonably easy fix for this, but you need the instructions from them, cause they ask a few questions about your licence etc when you call.

you may have to also download and run a little program to totally remove all PS3 items from your computer before re installation, I had to do this after my computer crashed last year, pretty sure the instructions are on the Adobe site.

A phone call to Adobe should get you on the right track

Had a similar problem after a crash, just rang explained what was doing and they fixed there and then
