Presumably "flash professional cs4" is a Windows program. So, if this is the case, then I suggest installing wine, and then attempting to install "flash professional cs4" on your system.

Not sure what to suggest. I recently did install a Windows program, via wine, that initially gave me some issues. However, it was specific in the errors it reported back to me. It stated that some dll file was missing; so, I searched for the file on the internet, found it, and put it in /home/mark/.wine/drive_C/windows/system32 directory ("mark" is my user). I then was able to install the program*.

If you can find a more specific readout of the error that's causing the program not to install, then maybe you can fix it. Or, as a previous poster said, you could check with the winehq site, to see if there are any further tips.

*which I later removed because the program did not live up to expectations, and, according to clamav, was carrying a Trojan. For me, I'm fine with all the options that Linux itself provides. But I digress.

there's still the possibility to use virtualization, e.g. vmware or so. i'm not familiar with this but google for it (and it's alternatives). best advice is surely to stick to windows when you really need the program.
