problems with installing photoshop cs2

Posted on 2005-05-11
Last Modified: 2011-10-03
when i first tried to install it it said, toward the end of the process, please insert win xp home edition cd rom, which i've lost.
when i cancel, error is "Product: Adobe Photoshop CS2 -- Error 1933.This setup requires Internet Information Server 4.0 or higher for configuring IIS Virtual Roots. Please make sure that you have IIS 4.0 or higher."
since i have winxp home, i found a workaround installing IIS5, using some files off of win2000 server cd which i downloaded off the internet, and currently am able to use IIS, localhost works fine, everything is set up i think correctly.
when i try again to install photoshop cs2, i get the same request for the cd, and i can never install it.
please help, or a workaround, has anybody had this problem and could solve it? thank you experts

    Accepted Solution

    since winxp home does not ship with IIS, it is probably not wise to try to install win2K version software - if it is even legal.

    the installer script may well simply be checking for registry settings or based on os platform version.  you would probably need to contact adobe support to get a definitive opinion on that point.
