Why can't I install Adobe CS4 Software?

People say it's supported but when I try to install it, it says that setup has failed or something like that. Anything I can do?

"setup has failed or something like that" is something i can't imagine it saying. Be more specific

Run the setup through the troubleshooter and select Vista for compatibilty

It says "Adobe Setup has stopped working" and underneath it says " Windows is collecting more information about the problem. this might take several minutes". And then it just asks me if I want to send in more information about the problem. So basically it's an error message that does not give any helpful information.

I tried compatibility mode, running it as administrator and both. Anything else I can do?



EDIT: This also comes up. When I try doing the steps, something doesn't work. The user account control window doesn't come up for some reason.

"An issue with the Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) client in Windows 7 beta is causing Explorer and some MSI-based installers to stop working properly.
To solve this problem, follow these steps:
  1. Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Accessories.
  2. Right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. In the User Account Control window, verify that Program name is Windows Command Processor, and then click Yes.
  3. In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type or paste the following text at the prompt:
    reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SQMClient\Windows\DisabledSessions /va /f
  4. Press Enter to install the solution.
  5. If The operation completed successfully displays, close the Administrator: Command Prompt window to complete this procedure. If "ERROR: Access is denied" displays, repeat this procedure from the top, making sure you clicked Run as administrator in step two."

Hi Phoenon

Which W7 Build are you using?
There were others reporting installation issues of Adobe products on earlier build.
Aslo reports of Cracked versions not installing....

I fought with it. After install, the only thing actually installed was bridge. After removing it and reinstalling 4 times, it finally took.

what happens if you click continue?

Does it install? That error, is just informing you... Since this is a beta, they may not have a tag or something in the installer which says Windows 7 will be a compatible OS (which likely wont be fixed till release of Win 7).

To some users, have you tried turning off UAC temporarily?

I was having the same issue. But I solved it. Setup was in "D:/cs4/adobe cs4" I moved it to be just "d:/adobe cs4" and it worked

Try the Adobe CS4 Clean Script, and then try to install again.
