CS3, Vista, Missing Duotones Presets

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

Hi,
I am using CS3 and Vista. I am trying to use the presets for duotones.
I go Image | Mode | Duotone | Load...and get nothing. The Duotones folder is empty. A quick search of the internet suggests that the files have been moved. So I searched my pc for *.ado and got nothing. No files.
Any advice?
Best regards,
Kevin

Kevin, I just loaded CS3 on my computer running Windows XP, and had the same problem. PS 'looked' but couldn't 'see' the presets loaded in the folder, C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS3\Presets\Duotones. (I checked and confirmed that the .ado duotone presets files are there.)
To fix this, from the duotone menu, I went to Load, then backed all the way out of the folders, to My Computer, then when back in to the above folder, and wow, PS saw that the duotone presets are there. I closed the file, opened another and converted to Duotone, and PS is still seeing that presets.
In other words, the Duotone preset folder is not empty, you just have to coax PS in to seeing the preset files.
Best, David
