I updated my Mac Os now i have some issues openig Photoshop

Hello Mac experts,

I updated my iOS operating system Thurs night.  When I tried to open Photoshop on Fri I got a popup box that said “To open ‘Adobe Photoshop CS3’ you need to install the legacy Jaa SE6 runtime.”  So, I downloaded Java and proceeded to go through the download process.  It appeared to be successfully installed but I still cannot open Photoshop and I continue to get the same message about needing to install Java.  Maybe there’s some step required to activate Java and I just haven’t found it?

Any advices please ?

Unfortunately you're lucky if you can get CS3 to work under El Capitan. It's certainly not supported and doesn't always work after the upgrade, in my experience... even with Java installed.

OMG!! Justin what the apple expert says about it ? any work around ? what should I do? downgrade ?
Will they probably release a service pack which will fix this soon ? Anybody ?

Thank you..
not a huge deal, i had the same problem. Java is the key. You need to remove any reference of java installation on your mac then install the legacy version after that CS3 works

Remove Java

install Java

Enjoy old software!

Guys she upgraded to Yosemite 10.11.1. is this error still possible or it should happen only when you upgrade to el Captain ?
I think this stated on Mavericks, it happened to me every time i upgraded. CS3 requires legacy JAVA which is no longer provided in the OS.
