Which OS version are you using?

Are you behind a firewall?

Are you using a proxy gateway?

After 6 years you're coming back to this topic with other name?

CS 8.0 was a version before CS2, so first from Creative Suite. Are you still using it or you have other version? Adobe doesn't support it anymore, while it's better to move to CS2 if use any other older. That was much better, but both are really old. CS from 2003, while next realease was after one and a half year. btw I loved CS2 and used it longer than should :D

The activation servers for photoshop cs/cs2/cs3 have been shut down, so if activation is what your having problems with, then you won't be able to activate cs.

Adobe has non activation cs2 available to replace cs/cs2.

Well, we've never supported XP 64 (upgrade to Win7, you'll be a LOT happier with it).

But something on your system is causing problems when Photoshop/installer tries to connect to the network.
