Alright, so I recently got Photoshop CS4, for some odd reason when I had to do a system restore, it messed up. Not sure why, but I got the screen to accept or decline the user end license agreement, when I clicked to accept it, it just went away and nothing happened. So I uninstalled it, and tried reinstalling it, now every time I try, it gets right to the end, where it's installing Adobe Bridge CS4 and it comes up with an error saying it had problems installing photoshop CS4 and then asks me if I want to continue with the installation, I click continue, and it finishes, but I get an error message at the end again. When I click more information I get this:

Adobe Photoshop CS4
Error:
Error 1603. Fatal error during installation.

Adobe Bridge CS4
Error:
Error 1603. Fatal error during installation.
ne
Adobe Device Central CS4
Error:
Error 1603. Fatal error during installation.

I'm not sure why I'm getting this error, please tell me someone knows what the hell is going on here? Lol. Because people are going to ask here are my specs:

Model: HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook PC
OS: Windows Vista
RAM: 2g
Free HD space: 170g
Complete HD space: 250g
Processor: AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-60 (2 CPUs), ~2.0GHz
BIOS: PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.1 (you probably won't need this, lol)
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 7150M / nForce 630M

All help is EXTREMELY appreciated. 😄 Thanks in advance.

Error 1603 is a generic machine-specific issue. One or more of the following fixes may resolve the error.

1. This error is known to occur on computers that do not have enough disk space for the installation. Increase your hard disk space.
2. The temp directory is full
3. A certain file on the machine is locked. To fix this:
1. Close all applications running in the background.
2. Reboot your computer.
3. Run the installation again.
4. The Windows Installer Service may not be properly installed on the machine. Update the system with the latest Windows Installer Service.
5. On Windows NT, 2000, or XP, make sure you have administrative privileges.
6. Use Microsofts Windows Installer Cleanup utility to remove traces of previous installations. This utility does not remove files installed by the installation, which may need to be removed manually.

Thank you for your quick reply. :D

1. I've definately got enough disk space.

2. I've cleared out my temp directory. This would be %temp% in windows vista, I cleared it out manually.

3. I've also closed all applications and rebooted and tried to install several times.

4. Windows Vista is completely up to date.

5. I'm using windows vista, so this doesn't apply.

6. I've done this, but I'm not sure what all I should remove. I didn't see anything left over from Photoshop CS4 or anything CS4 for that matter after I removed.

6. It cleans out the registry values, it does not remove the files, you should find them in the 'Program Files (x86)/Adobe'. There will also be other files under your user name, you can also delete those as well. Remember to re-boot your machine again after doing this.

If you are still having problems, it could be something left over in the registry, you can use the Adobe Clean Script. I would run that after doing above, rebooting then trying a re-install.
