Windows 7: Adobe CS3 Premium won't install properly

Adobe CS3 Premium won't install properly

I have Windows 7 Ultimate and Adobe CS3 will not install properly.

In the setup window:

I am able to install:

Dreamweaver CS3
Flash CS3

But I cannot install:

Illustrator CS3
Photoshop CS3
InDesign CS3

The programs above fails the system check.

The messages state similar to, "The minimum system requirements listed are needed to run Adobe Illustrator CS3 and are not met":

  • Windows XP Service Pack 1 and greater
  • Windows Vista

I have tried to run the setup file under compatibility mode with no luck.

Does the Adobe CS3 installation work under Windows 7?
