Akamai is the 'stupidist' installation aid I have ever seen. It goes around in circles, it has extracted the files over and over and over again. This is the fifth (5) time and nothing happens except it asks if it should extract again?????????????????
How in the hell do I install CS6?
Surely there is a better way.
Which Adobe Creative Suite 6 product are you trying to download? Which operating system and web browser are you using? Is this a volume license or a retail license for the software. Finally what exactly are you double clicking on which is asking you to extract the files?
Sorry, Was so frustrated forgot to inlclude that info. Photoshop CS6, Windows 7 professional, Firefox browser, this is a single retail upgrade license.
I double clicked on the .exe file above.
The next image here shows the next thing I got:
Now, it extracts to that location as seen here:
Now, It expects me to "run" which I do and then I get this:
What happened. It does this over and over again.
When I go to the folder location where the extract was supposed to happend and
finally get to the 'setup.exe' it runs a few minutes and then said installation failed.
Don't know where to go from here.
It just repeats ad nauseum.
Turn off the UAC on your Windows 7 first,
Also , when you double-click on the exe file , and let the extraction to happen at the specified place, no need to click "Run" after that.
rather cancel it, and then go to the location on your desktop where you have extracted it and there you will find the Setup.exe file , double click that file to start the setup installation
Manish is correct you need to launch the setup from the Adobe CS6/Photoshop folder on your desktop. You are selecting the compressed exe file each time which is why it keeps asking you to extract.
I cannot believe I pulled this one. I failed to read the "Installation Failed" message which stated quite clearly that there was a pre-release version on the system which had to be removed.
I am so sorry that I was so righteously indignant. It was all my fault. Thank you for the helpful suggestions but in the end all I had to do was read the information. It now is installed.
