    I think this has been mentioned on DF before, but I have no idea why it shouldn't work...

    Should've bought a Mac :p

    Is it a genuine copy?
    Is it compatiable with that OS / system setup?

    Hi,

    I had a similar problem once with Flash CS4 not loading even though It had been working before.
    Apparantly due to a corrupted config file.

    I sorted it by erasing configuration settings, if the config settings folder is deleted it automatically creates a new one...

    Though i'd google the solution as this is prob a flash specific bug..

    after 1 hour on the phone, the girl (technical indeed..............she don't know shit) then gave me another number to call. She couldn't even transfer me...................... I gave up but i have two PCs (one with home premium and business) so i just loaded it on my home premium.
     
  15. blimey the tech support just gets better and better for Adobe :p

    At least you have 2 PC's and can install it on home premium :) I wonder if its a Vista Business problem?

    the folder is massive though (80mb)............. are you sure?

    Definitely a vista business problem :down:
     
  18. I would mention contacting Micro$oft but that would probably be pointless :lol:

    you are absolutely right, vista business sounds like an upgrade from home premium but it is actually a downgrade. You don't get dvd maker and other media programs. Its just basic and useless.............. slower too.

    As I said, it was a flash error that I had and i found the solution via google, I would be reluctant to delete anything without seeing a solution on at least a few different forums.

    Having said that... I guess you have nothing to lose if you know how to manually remove the software and remove it's registry entries... and still have have the installation disks to reinstall it.
