Install Dreamweaver CS3 conficts with old version flash player

Spent 2 days on installing Dreamweaver CS3, some problems occurred during installation.

Followed the instruction on kb.adobe.com, typed “eventvwr” in run command window, looked into event viewer, the problem is:

Product: Adobe Flash Player 9 Plugin — Error 1714.The older version of Adobe Flash Player 9 Plugin cannot be removed. Contact your technical support group. System Error 1612.

Another tip from adobe suggests to download uninstall_flash_player.exe to delete old version flash player on my machine. I did that, but it seems this tool can only remove flash9 player. I then used another tool from microsoft msicuu2.exe (Windows Install Clean up) to remove the flash8 player.

After a re-install, the problem was fixed. This solution is different than those being talked in hostingforum.ca which needs to disconnect from network and disable the firewall.
