I don't see an option to edit ot remove my previous comment, so I decided to post a new one.
If you're using a 64-bit version of Adobe Flash CS5 and it crashes with Error: 3, you have to copy the "pcd.db" file located in "Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Adobe/Adobe PCD" to "Program Files/Common Files/Adobe/Adobe PCD" (you may have to create that folder first).
It is important, that you only copy that file and not the whole "Adobe PCD" folder, as it may cause Photoshop to crash.
Flash CS5 has issue with Wine 1.3.7

I have updated Wine to 1.3.7 and I cannot start Flash CS5 anymore. It stops at splash screen reading "build workspace". I'm trying to figure it out. If anyone wants to run Flash CS5 using my guide, please stay with Wine 1.3.6 for now.
