CS3 difficulties

When I launch the CS3 suite, a graphic comes up with the icons of the respective applications. I double click on an app icon and another panel comes up with a hot spot that says "Drop Zone". I dragged the icon over to the drop zone and the message came up saying, "You can't apply the patch on this file".<span id="INSERTION_MARKER"> There is no explanation on how to launch except this warning.
