    Can CS3 and CS4 exist at the same time on a computer? I would not want
    to uninstall CS3 until I was completely satisfied that CS4 was running

    But you can't open up both at the same time.

    Plus there is a glitch which I discovered and removed CS3. Comes within
    Adobe security.

    Why keep CS3 anyway if you have CS4, every thing is available to make
    them work the same.

    Check this if its slow

    My install got hung up...thus, I needed to re-install again. The result, at
    least when installed the Suite is it deleted CS3 InDesign and Dreamweaver.
    BUT, when I use the PITA online help window I get an error message that I am
    using a faulty upgrade serial number. I called adobe and they verified my
    activations but even they could not figure out why with the new install it
    neither asked for my own number or recognized it. What does that have to do
    with your post you might ask? It means that via the 'activation' process
    things might be wackey with both. I am still waiting on some plugins to be
    updated for CS4 Illustrator so until then I need and want to keep PS and
    ILLY CS3 and CS4 running.

    Be interested to know if you get an answer from Adobe or they just take
    it on board.

    They still didn't get the install and activation problems sorted on CS3.
    I could not install the web suite off the DVD and had to use individual

    On one PC I have the accept screen coming up when PS CS4 is booted.

    go figure!
