What works

This is for the cs3 installer itself and does not reflect the components. Installer would not initially run with a 'vanilla' install of wine. I managed to get the cs3 master collection installer started correctly after manually adding per the instructions at (not with winetricks) and also installing msxml6 and ie6 with winetricks. All menus and options displayed and functioned properly. All cs3 components successfully installed themselves.

What does not

Nothing, program ran flawlessly and successfully installed the entire cs3 master collection.


What was not tested

Did not test any of the individual programs, only the installer for the suite as a whole.

doesn't work without fresh profile

According to the reports from other people the installer only works with a fresh wine profile. I haven't confirmed this myself because I test wine with a special user account and wipe the profile between installs to make certain problems from another program to not affect my current test. I would be interested to know what other people have installed to try to figure out what is causing the conflict here.

It gave me critical hints on installing CS3 web standard on wine 1.1.15.
I first installed wine 1.0.9, and then wine 1.1.15. This may caused problem. Eventually, I deleted all wine directories in home directory, and started over again. This time the installation program showed up!!
