    I just bought the full version of InDesign CS3 today and need to uninstall the trial version. There is nothing in the Adobe Installer folder and I don't know what to do. Please Help!!!

    I would wait until Monday to call Adobe technical support. It took me more than a day do get rid of the trial of Photoshop before I could successfully install the CS3 Master Collection.

    It is very tricky because their installer is incredibly stupid.

    The details are on the Adobe website. But if you do it the wrong way, it can take a visit to the Terminal before you can get rid of all the trial files that need to be expunged before the real installer will work.

    In your Applications Folder is a Utilities Folder. In that is an Adobe Installers Folder where the uninstaller resides. Theoretically that will do the job.

    What steps did you take? There is nothing in my Adobe Installer folder but when I try to run my new CS3 disc, it says that CS3 is already installed. Where else could it be?

    Uninstalling by dragging the application to the trash is the wrong way to go. I had trouble installing photoshop CS3 after I deleted the beta version. There are a bunch of preference files left on the system which make the installer think the application is already installed.

    a little bit of google brings me to this page. Perhaps you can give it a try.

    Yup. Had to use that script before I could install CS3 on my Mac Book.
