First, try a different browser, or clear your cache cookies for the adobe.com domain.

If that doesn't work, try downloading from here: http://prodesigntools.com/download-ad... (Be sure to read the section titled "Note: Very Important Instructions" to avoid errors)

Jeffrey,

Thanks for responding so quickly.

I still get the same 404 error with three different browsers.

Hmm. OK.- I just tried here with Chrome and it seems to work. Did the link from Pro Design Tools work, while following their "Note: Very Important Instructions" section?

Jeffrey,

See attached screen shot. This was the link which returned a 404 error.

Did you follow the very important instructions at the top of that same page?

Jeffery,

Thanks for the help. I am making progress.

Unfortunately, after running the installer app, I get a the following error message.

Are you trying to install it on MacOS 10.10?

Just to confirm, is the clean install of CS3? Or was CS3 already installed on this machine and you're re-installing?

I'm finding a few solutions but there does't seem to be a single solution:

Seems to be related to an already damaged/missing files from the original install.

Jeffrey,

It has been a bad day. I started by reinstalling Mac OS 10.10.2 to ensure the OS was not malfunctioning.

Once I had completed this I tried Photoshop (and also Dreamweaver). Both reported that I needed legacy Java SE 6 runtime. Despite looking everywhere I could not find a Java 6 version.

In desperation this afternoon I purchased Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 Mac Full edition - Electronic Download. After installation, I came to run it and received the same error message stating the need for legacy Java SE 6 runtime.

The more info button leads to a blank screen.

Please can you assist.

I think that OS dialog is out of date. For Yosemite, you want to install this version of the JRE "Java for OS X 2014-001" from here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572
