Windows 7: x32 CS3 Won't Install on x64 Platform

x32 CS3 Won't Install on x64 Platform

Need your wisdom on this issue that is DRIVING ME CRAZY!

My computer stats are available when you click on my username.

I had Win 7 Home and upgraded to Professional in order to fix this problem and it is still a problem.

So, now I have the XP partrition (Virtual PC) and cannot download CS3 since it is a x32 and my computer is x64.

I have read on other posts that other users have been able to get around this.

Great. Please tell me how to do so.

I NEED photoshop and dreamweaver. Now.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and Home Premium x64

That is strange, since I have Photoshop CS3 x32 and I am on Windows 7 x64 Ultimate and having no problems getting it to install or run. I also haven't done anything special to install or get it to run.
