Installing CS3 From Hard Disk


My desktop computer recently crashed, so I've had to spend some time getting it back up and running. I've just about got it, but my DVD drive is only working in Safe Mode. This caused me trouble when I tried to re-install Adobe C3 (for Dreamweaver and Photoshop, mostly). In the end, here's what I had to do:

  1. Copy the contents of the first disc to my hard disk, in any folder.
  2. Copy the contents of the payloads directories from each of the other discs into the payloads directory on my hard disk. No files were replaced.
  3. Run the installer (setup.exe) from the Adobe CS3 directory on my hard disk. From this location, setup looks for all of the files on the hard disk, instead of asking for the next CD.
