Error installing CS3

Hey guys, I amt rying to install CS3 but every time I get the error "This installation is forbidden by system policy.
Contact your system administrator"....obviously I am looged in as admin and I made sure that there are not Local Group Policies. This computer is NOT part of a Domain...can anyone help me?....

RE: Error installing CS3

Try setting up a new user with Admin rights and then install from that log in.

If you can't then there's sumfin up.


RE: Error installing CS3

thanks for the idea, I did try that but it didnt work

RE: Error installing CS3

You should perhaps check out the other Tek-Tip forums that deal with your Operating System. It's probably more that than the InDesign install.


RE: Error installing CS3

...have you tried right click the installer and "run as administrator"?


RE: Error installing CS3

have you also tried the following?

1. Launch Command Prompt Application ( Start > Run > cmd (Press Enter)

2. Type the command "regsvr32 jscript.dll"
(ensure a space between regsrv32 and  jscript.dll)

3. Press enter to execute the typed command.

Then try running the installer again.


RE: Error installing CS3

...if on vista, try running the command prompt as administrator then perform the above regsvr32 execution...


RE: Error installing CS3

The clean script worked nicely! Thanks!
