Windows 7: Issues with Photoshop CS3 with Windows 7 Pro 64bit

Issues with Photoshop CS3 with Windows 7 Pro 64bit

I just tried to install the entire Adobe CS3 suite last week, and after a lot of time spent scouring the web for fixes, I finally got most of the programs to work. However, Photoshop, the program I initially wanted the suite for, will not run at all.

I start the program, and a window pops up saying that it can't continue, windows searches for a solution for a couple of seconds, I am then instructed to press the "close" button in the window and Photoshop shuts down.

My initial issues with the entire CS3 installation were apparently related to compatibility issues with license verification in adobe, but I found a patch for that. I have tried running the file in compatibility mode and/or as an administrator, but nothing changes.

Anyone have any ideas?

Yeah, I put a reply in there too prior to creating this new post. That licensing patch did help me with CS3 as a whole, but Photoshop still won't work.
