Invalid checksum again and again

Apr 10, 2012 7:43 AM



I've tried downloading the extended trial of Creative suite without succes. Then I tried downloading the files directly - without luck - I keep getting the messages "The following disk images couldn't be opened" - invalid checksum.


I'm working with a MacBook Pro with OS X


Please advice.


Thank you,

    Download on some other system , then copy the file on th pen drive and bring it on this system and then install it.

    Sorry to say but yes, you have to re-download and then check

    Go to Finder > Type Disk Utility > Preferences and simply unchecking the box that says "Verify Checksums" . Close Disk Utility. Then Creative suite dmg should open fine and the program should install without any issues.


    (You might want to re-check the verify checksums box after you've finished the installation though because it's there to help prevent the installation of corrupted .dmgs that could potentially harm your computer)
