Photoshop CS and Windows 2000 SP3 question - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

In the system requirements I read that CS needs SP3 when using Windows 2000. This could be very problematic for me. I still only have SP2 because installing SP3 causes a BSOD on my other computer (simple network) and SP4 totally messed up my OS to the point I had to re-install it completely.

    Default Photoshop CS and Windows 2000 SP3 question

    Chris, I can fully understand that you can't answer every question asked here, but I sure hope you will be kind enough to help me out on this one.
    Will PS run on Windows 2000 with SP2?

    Ronald, I wonder if the more appropriate measure is to find out why your computer won't accept the SP's. You can get help from MS on email, which, the last time I used it, was free, but slow. The responders treat this form as thoroughly as the phone version, which costs bux!

    I have W2K with all the upgrades and never had any failure due to the SP's.

    Ron, another adobe employee confirmed it will run on 2k w/lower than sp3, though that is recommended. Not sure if it was here or in the lounge, but it was recent.

    Lawrence,

    I totally agree but this was already tried by a very knowledgeable person, alas without success. As I have a very stable system running SP2 I was hoping I could leave it this way...
