    "Adobe Software is Crap!"

    May 13, 2010  |   By KewlKat007

    Version: Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5

    Pros

    There's not a single pro.

    Cons

    Unable to install software because of bugs in CS5.

    Summary

    I have tried everything that is listed on Adobe's forums and customer support knowledgebase. Notihing has worked, I've uninstalled CS5, used the Windows Installer Cleanup Unitility, used Revo Uninstaller Advanced feature, restarted my PC so many times that I've lost count.

    The software gets to about 21% (installsing CS5 Infrasturecture) and then craps out. It gives an error which according to the forums is a generic error. So, I installed the Adobe Support utility. It scans and finds two errors. It tells me that the problem is that there was a conflict between the CS5 installer and another program on my comptuer. I click the link that is supposed to bring me to the knowledgebase to give me more details. The only thing it tells me is that I need to close whatever program is conflicting with CS5 installer.

    What the hell is that? I was under the assumption that this tool would scan and diagnose the problem. I didn't need to install their support advisor just to tell me that a program is confliting. I knew that there had to be a conflict somewhere.

    It would have been more helpful if the program could actually tell you what program was conflicting. THe log files sure didn't say anything about a specific program.

    In my opinion Adobe has gone to crap and is neck-and-neck with Microsoft. I even had a recent issue with updating Adobe Reader. It kept giving an error about permission on a registry key. Once again I went through every step mentioned and nothing worked. From now on I refuse to use any product that is Adobe. I'm currently look for a replacement of Flash. I've already replace their oh-so-bloated PDF Reader.
