So for the past week I’ve been working on a 24 machine iMac mass deployment. One of the many apps installed on the master machine was the CS3 suite. After deploying the image I found out that none of the CS3 apps worked. Instead I got this error, “Licensing for this product has stopped working.” After googling the error, I find I’m not the only one with this problem.


The solution for me was to run the CS3 installer again but un-select all the apps. This causes CS3 to only reinstall the shared applications such as the copy protection piece. I was unable to make a PKG out of this action using Composer so I had to re-image all 24 machines instead.
