Note: To install Adobe Photoshop CS3, and to perform most of the following troubleshooting tasks, you must have administrator privileges. If you lack administrator privileges, the Adobe Photoshop CS3 installer will be unable to access necessary files.
1. Make sure that the system meets the minimum requirements for Photoshop CS3. Photoshop CS3 may not run correctly on a system that doesn't meet the following requirements:

  • PowerPC G4 or G5, or Intel-based Macintosh
  • Mac OS X v.10.4.8
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 2 GB of available hard-disk space (additional free space required during installation)
  • 1024 x 768 monitor resolution with 16-bit video card
  • DVD-ROM drive
  • QuickTime 7.1 software required for multimedia features
  • Internet or phone connection required for product activation
  • Broadband Internet connection required for Adobe Stock Photos and other services
Hope that helps....

No you cannot, because it is not supported when you uninstall it. If you visit What you might want to do is just download another version on it. Copy it onto a flash drive or CD. And then just place into the other PC.

Also you can share digital files between the PC and your Mac, but not programs, because programs are Server-Side installed. So the only way to share a program is to copy the files(Install Files) from one PC to the Mac, and it should work.

    The only way to transfer the file is to visit and download the Version for the Mac. The activation code should still work. Thanks for using Fixya!

    Marked's Post is right, but it doesn't tell you how to install it into a Mac computer. So it is right for a PC, but not a Mac.

To increase data transfer rate b/w PCs

If the data transfer rate between two PCs over a LAN is slow, stop any firewall service if running in both PCs. This will increase the data transfer rate between the PCs.
This can increase the throughput if your are backing a set of servers using a master backup server. Or any scenario where is there is flow of data between two windows systems.
PS: This is not applicable to all the antivirus firewalls. Also i don't recommend to keep the firewall disabled, if no other alternatives are planned well.

the program may not be compatible to the OS on the PC or you may have defective software in this case Adobe will replace it for free. But make sure your operating system can handle it and that you have the right amount of memory and hard drive space. GOOD LUCK

I need to reinstall Photoshop CS3 on my HPPavilion that has Vista Home premium 64bit. The problem is that it insists that I must install it on drive G, which is my backup drive. Carl

unplug the drive while you install, or make sure you have it installed. You may need to make sure your default software install location is correct. to do so do the following

1. Navigate to:
2. Find ProgramFilesDir whose default should be C:\Program Files
If is not then change it back
Remember you have to reboot for your changes to show.
