I went to the forum and also verified the temp. file in the /appdata/roaming/microsoft/ file.


I currently have CS5 master collection installed.

    Is this the first time you tried to install CS6? What operating system are you running on your pc?

    I'll forward this to the installation experts.

    Hi Mark,


    This is a known issue, The workaround for the same is to create a folder 'Favorites' at

    >'<Windows drive>:\Users\Public\Favorites\


    Then try installing PS again it should work.
