Photoshop CS3 Application Error

  1. OK, so I have just recently cloned my hard drive, and so that was successfully done. Until I tried to open up my Photoshop CS3 Extended. it pops up with and error saying "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application." I tried to google it and I came up with the conclusion that it's a registry error. Does any one know what it is and how I can fix it? Thanks.

    Adobe has very special security settings that usually prevent a cloned install. They also require an uninstall before the new install. You would probably benefit from a talk with Adobe if you are the legal owner. They will be happy to help, but you cannot have it on two machines at once, without trickery.

    I'm hoping that a moderator will pick up on your posts so that we can call you "BANNED"
