PhotoShopCS v8 WindowsXP SP3

Discussion in 'Photoshop Tutorials' started by \(the\)duckster, Oct 29, 2008.

  1. Dear experienced Photoshop users

    I have a workstation that runs windows xp and recently rec'd a notice that
    there is an up to 315 mb sp now available.

    My question is has anyone using xp and having installed this upgrade run
    into any issues with their PS CS v8.0 version.


    Kind regards,

    You may not have issues with PS but you may have issues with installing
    SP3. I have had problems with two computers.

  3. Dear Rob,

    Thanks for a quick reply. Were you able to overcome the issues? Did you
    wind up installing the the Windows Service Pack?

    Kind regards,

    SP3 went smoothly on two of my computers but I had a very difficult
    time on my main computer. I ended up having to repair the OS from the
    original CDs then reinstall SP2 then use a special third party utility
    to remove all the dot net framework before I could get sp3 to install.
    It was days of stress. It is probably very unlikely that you will have
    a problem but it is possible so you may want to backup your system
    before you install it.

    Good luck,

    That will be so nice. I sure wish I could do that. I think MS should
    have skipped the 32 bit version this time - 4GB is just not enough

    Firstly - I made an SP3 install disk by slipstreaming SP3 update into
    the SP2 install CD. This is to do clean installs.

    MS downloaded SP3 with auto updates and when asked installed it. We had
    the BSOD on bootup. To overcome the problem I did a repair install with
    the CD. This was on 2 PC's.

    Batches of computer types, in a 250 laptop school classroom situation,
    three types in all some were OK, two Toshiba, one would the other gave
    problems, and Dell were OK. A warning went out to the users not to
    install the auto update and continue with the SP2 updates.

    MS have solutions on their web site, I never could understand the tech
    report how to correct the problem as it was quicker for me to do a
    repair install.

    It just combines most of the SP2 updates into one file. Something like a
    clean install of SP2 and 270Mb of updates or SP3 install and 100Mb of
