Windows 7: Adobe CS3 in 64-bit Ultimate

Hey there I finally found the answer to our problem prodad. Apparently the licensing software for adobe hated the amd quad cores, but they released a patch which corrects it. I found someone who did this in a random AMD forum and it works great. Error "Licensing for this product has stopped working" when you start any Adobe Creative Suite 3 application That is the link to the solution on adobes website, Im sure that those jerks wanted me to pay 60 bucks so that they could give me that link, Im damn happy personally.

Will do, but I've run out of things to try. I have people telling me on other boards that "of course it won't run. It's a 32 bit program." But then there are people here that are running it. Does sound system specific.

Patch works!

peterh! You made my day. That did the trick. I ran it like three times and it didn't work so I was about to give up, but then I thought I'd try running it with my security software turned off (Trend Micro) and that allowed it to run correctly.

I'm back in business! I should send you the $60.

(Just kidding. I need it to buy a new scanner.)

There is another thread on here where we were trying to figure this out. I'll post your solution there.

Thanks again! Merry Christmas.

So I was just asking if someone had given it a serious try and what their experience was.
Issues with Adobe Flash across x64 IE browsers exist.

Hey guys, same issue here. HP with an AMD X4 & Windows 7 64bit trying to run Adobe CS3. peterh, that fix helped me out huge, thanks a lot. I have been agonizing over this for 2 days now with my new PC.

Still have one problem though: Acrobat Pro runs, and everything else runs from CS3, but Photoshop still won't run. I'm done reinstalling the programs. . .

Anyone hear of anything?

Wow--the patch worked for me, too

Just bought an HP Pavillion Elite with Windows 7 Home Premium and AMD processor. Photoshop CS3 would install but would hang when accessed. Some forums suggested that Photoshop CS3 is incompatible with this AMD processor and Windows 7 (64-bit). I called HP and was told the software is incompatible. I was just about to return my computer when I found this forum. I downloaded and installed the patch. I then opened Photoshop (for the thousandth time) and voila--it FINALLY opened!!!

Thank you so much for this terrific fix!!

Patch works

Glad that patch is working for some people. Seems to be very system specific. I've noticed that when I run CS3 it will disable Aero-Peek. BUt I canlive without that for now.
