Vista, Photoshop CS2 and Kodak Gem Airbrush Professional Plugin
Wow! I’m beginning to wonder why I got Vista. I have a computer with an AMD 64 Quad Phenom processor, 8 gigabyte of RAM and 2.7 terabytes of SATA hard drives internally. Transferring my Photoshop CS2 was a real hassle (blogged previously about it) and then reinstalling the Kodak Gem Airbrush Professional was a real hassle. Then yesterday I go to use the Kodak plugin and it’s in demo mode. I can’t use it for final prints in demo mode so I start emailing for support. I’m not sure what changed between Thursday and Friday but I had to uninstall the plugin through the control panel uninstall programs function. Then I had to do a search for eSellerate on my computer and remove all incidents of that. Then restart my computer after all that is done.
Now’s here’s the kicker. I had to find my Photoshop executable and right click on it. Go to the compatibility tab and click on “Open as administrator”. Then reinstall the plugin and restart Photoshop. Then it allowed me to place the serial number and it worked. I wrote back to them to see if I could now uncheck the “Open as administrator box” and they said yes. Guess what, the answer is no. It was in demo mode again. This is ridiculous.
Well, at least it’s up and running again. Of course, now I have to approve the opening of Photoshop as administrator everytime it starts.
On another note:
I became an Amazon Associate. Store is located at http://claytonbruster.synthasite.com. Great place to buy your MP3 music files. Most single files are 79 cents. Check it out.
And my site at http://claybruster.com has been modified and updated including a new page to purchase select Giclee’ prints on stretch canvas.
Hope you’re having a great weekend. It’s cold (56 degrees), overcast and wet here in Southern California.
