    Hi so I have an Intel MacBook Pro partitioned with Leopard and Vista (i purely use Vista for gaming) and just tried to download the Photoshop CS4 trial because I'm tired of using GIMP and I get an error that says something along the lines of "Can't install on this volume. Must be writable, local, and (something I can't remember, don't feel like d/l'ing again)." Also along these lines if I try to stick files from Leopard onto Vista it says that only administrator's can do that. I know that I am the admin because I'm the only profile on this, and it lets me install stuff on Leopard that you have to be the admin to do. My friend says that you can trick it into making dual admins, but it's kinda complicated. Any help would be appreciated. (Also I've run the CS3 trial on Vista, so it isn't the MacBook itself).

    Did you try and install CS4 onto your Vista partition? (from OS X)
    Also, I don't think Leopard comes with read/write NTFS support, only read.

    I use NTFS-3G with MacFUSE in order to get read/write support within Leopard. The only downside is that OS X will no longer have an option for "Reboot in Windows" or whatever it is within OS X. This can be solved by holding ALT at boot-up and selecting Vista though.

    Windows doesn't like other people writing to their Partitions.

    But yeah NTFS3g and MacFuse are great for ntfs.

    Unless its somehow in FAT or something

    Again, Windows doesn't like anyone writing to their partitions. Writable or not.

    Did you enter your password? It should ask to enter your password.

    I double clicked Setup and got an error. Didn't ask for my password cuz it didn't get far enough.

    EDIT: re-downloading trial, hopefully it'll work. I installed the NTFS-3G
