Installing 32bit applications on Windows Vista 64bit
Hello,

I am trying to install a couple of 32bit applications (such as Adobe CS2
etc) on newly installed machine with Vista 64bit.
However the installer fails to recognize the "Program Files (x86)" folder as
valid destination, because of the ( ).

I created a subfolder named x86 under Program Files (which is intended for
64 bit applications) but I was wondering if there is a more elegant
workaround to make the 32bit apps to install in "Program Files (x86)".

Thanks,
Eyal

Maybe these KB will help your situation on 64 bit Vista. The March 2007
update package applies to Adobe CS2.
