Has it occurred to you that CS3 isn't compatible with Mavericks? Try using CS9 or 10.
Sorry that's untrue. I have Photoshop CS3 running on 10.9.
CS9 or 10? Now you are just making stuff up.
Adobe claim CS3 will work, with a minor issue…
The Adobe updater fails to work for me.
I was prompted to install J6RE which came from Apple, check the Apple support downloads http://support.apple.com/downloads/#java%206
Sorry can't provide a direct link, it was just a dumb 'You need … please click install' dialog.
I think the 10.9 java updater is installing version 7.
Excuse me, I meant CS6 as the latest version. CS3 worked marginally with Lion and Mountain Lion. Creative Cloud CS3 has been found incompatible along with CS3 in general based on App Compatibility Table - RoaringApps
