Why do this error when opening any of my adobe programs?

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I just perform a fresh install of Windows on my computer and then I installed Adobe CS5 Production Premium on another partition.

The installation went okay but when trying to launch it.

I got an Error 16 that says please reinstall the program and then it will automatically close the program.

How can I fix this?

Hi there ,

It seems you have trouble using Adobe CS 5 Latest on your Windows OS system . 

I suggest You Re-Install (Not actually , but uninstall and then  Install , Not overwrite ) Its seems some registry errors. 

1. Don't re-Install , First remove Skype from Start -> control panel -> Programs and Features  and then uninstall 

2. Now go to filehippo.com and then download CCleaner from it and then install it and run it . It is to clean the registry and make it perfect for new install.
3. Then install fresh copy And try using it . (this time save it to the same Drive If possible)
If still not working means 
1 . If re-Installing didn't helped means try contacting Adobe from their Adobe website at ww.Adobe.com .
2 . Or search for similar problems in Adobe forums.

If the program doesn’t run after installing it, check the system requirements again and make sure your computer meets those requirements. Adobe Production Premium CS5 supports 64-bit Windows Vista (Home Premium, Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise edition) Service Pack 1 and Windows 7. It requires Intel Pentium 4 or equivalent AMD Athlon 64 or faster processor, 2 GB RAM, 16.3 GB free space, and 1280 x 900 minimum screen resolution.

32-bit Java Runtime Environment 1.5 (JRE) or higher is also required. To access QuickTime features, QuickTime 7.6.2 or higher is needed. If you have a valid operating system, try updating your platform to the latest Service Pack. Download the latest service pack update from here:

Try also updating your video card driver. Some of the program’s GPU-accelerated features require Shader Model 3.0 and OpenGL 2.0 support.
