I'm trying to install Photoshop in Vista, and when it gets to the part where I choose where to install it, no matter what I choose it says its invalid please choose another directory or such.

Whats going on?

Is there a reason you are changing the path? You may have to create the folders yourself prior to choosing it?

I installed Creative Suite 2.3 last week and had no problems during the installation and have no problems using the software under Windows Vista.

I created the folders before hand and now it installed, thats weird.

So many things I need to get used it, or get fixed lol.

For some reason I said fuggit and just went with Paint.NET 3.0... is this issue common? I'm glad I did not go the way of Adobe.

Adobe Photoshop CS2 (for Windows) was designed for XP. There are somethings that may not work the same under Vista, such as the installer screaming about the path being invalid.

After you create it manually it is no longer invalid. =)

I doubt anything will come out for CS2 (Creative Suite, Photoshop, etc.) that will make it more compatible.

From what I've read, CS3 is being developed with Vista in mind.

I have actually purchased the Windows Vista Ultimate Edition, and have a purchased version of CS2 completely updated, and have had no problems other then one hang after browsing 800 12mb JPG wedding photos. But i cannot say Photoshop didnt do that with XP, so i have no complaints. As of now, it is just going to be the variances of software installed and your hardware that cause the issues. I think Adobe will put out another update to help the compatibility, but it was built with the basis of XP. Guess time will tell.

B - did you run the install as Administrator?

Vista doesn't give any software rights to the C:\Program Files folder by default, so that may have been your issue. Not sure what may have changed when you created the folder yourself manually though.
