Haven't been able to install the "Adobe Photoshop CS6 beta" (photoshopcs6_p1_mac_032112.dmg) but have tried the following:

- Downloaded it 4 times from 4 different networks.

- Launched the installer from the original download folder.

- Unpacked the installer and launched it from a desktop folder.

- Updated my "Adobe Application Manager" within "Applications/Utilities/Adobe Application Manager/core/..." (

- I'd love to provide the installer log but there's nada within my log folders:

("my harddrive" / Library / Logs / Adobe / Installers / CS6 .log.gz file)

("account name on computer / Library / Logs / Adobe / Installers / empty directory)

- Sacrificed a chicken over the trackpad to promote "initialization" stability.

- Disabled various fonts...just cause.

- Repaired Disk Permissions

- Definately restarted several times in advance of new installation attemtps.


User profile:

OS X 10.7.3

Processor: 4GB 1067 MHz DDR3

Currently running various CS5 products


Knowing that, I'm completely open to suggestions -and ready to go Terminal Mode is necessary.

    Mine just did the same thing. I have MAC OSX Lion. I re-downloaded twice. The second time I thought it was going to crash my new macbook pro. I gave up and moved on.

    Have you recently repaired permissions on your system? (Disk Utility, select your HD, Repair Disk Permissions). Give that a shot, restart your machine and try installing again. Also make sure you're an administrator of the account you're trying to install on.

    Yeah, sounds like you've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps Umami.


    Just to be sure, did you try installation in a different Administrator user account?


    Try that out,

    I'll go ahead and ask one of our installation engineers to get in contact with you to resolve your installation troubles.

    Thanks for sharing the requested file. I found that the file was corrupt.

    Since you do not have any CS5/5.5/6 product currently installed on your machine so download the cleaner tool from

    Select CS5-CS5.5 in the drop down menu item. It will not list any products but the button 'Clean All CS5-CS5.5' will be found enabled. Click the button, it will remove all the installer and related  files from your machine. You should now be able to run the installer successfully.
