Windows 7: Error in installing adobe photoshop cs3 on windows 7

Error in installing adobe photoshop cs3 on windows 7

I'm a mac user and few days ago, I installed windows 7 in my bootcamp. I installed the drivers and everything. It worked perfectly though, except for Adobe Photoshop CS3

I installed Photoshop. When I tried to run it, it opens but after the blue splash screen of Ps, an error always says "Could not initialize Photoshop because the file could not be found."

I tried to google it and I followed every step that I saw ("~twain", delete preferences, deleteing preferences in adobe preferences folder) but nothing worked. I also tried to reinstall it 10 times (because I really need to make it work) but the same thing happens.

Hopefully someone can help me. I really need to make it work.

Keep in mind that the use of Bootcamp does not mean that every windows program is going to function 100%.
