I've just purchased the Adobe Complete Collection and this is my first use of Adobe products. Therefore, my apologies in advance if this question is inappropriate. I've tried to search the forums for an answer, but haven't been able to locate a solution.
I downloaded the extra CS6 Premiere Pro and Encore content and installed it onto my iMac. When I look at the Library content now, there are some sample menus in each of the categories (e.g., general, education), but no buttons, images, text, backgrounds, etc. I'm learning to use Encore by viewing the Lynda CS5 tutorials and the presenter says that there should be quite a bit of content. However, nothing shows up when I press the various buttons (other than the menus).
I've reinstalled the download. I've also checked the Library in the finder and only .psd files are shown in the Library sub-folder. I don't see any references to button files, etc.
Can someone please let me know if I've made a mistake somewhere or whether there has been a change in the free Library contents in CS6?
Thanks for your help.
It is my understanding that the library continues to be in a separate download. But that does not explain the presence of the menus.
I also understand that, returning to the method of several versions ago (CS2?), this will also be true for installations from disks.
I have not yet installed CS6, Can someone who has let us know?

There is a very limited set of Functional Content, that IS included with the initial installation of Encore.
As we have seen, the Additional Functional Content will be available for download soon.
Going way back, IIRC, one had the option to Install, or Not, the Additional Functional Content. Again from memory, back with the Production Studio CS2 (PrPro 2.0 also had limited authoring capabilities), the same held for both PrPro 2.0 and EncoreDVD 2.0 in that suite - one could choose to go with just the base list of Functional Content, or install it all, and for both programs (very similar, but not 100% identical). Now, and this is from the media, I believe that the default is TO install that Additional Functional Content.
It is the same thing with Premiere Elements, which has a limited authoring capability. With the program installation, the user gets a few Menus, some Titles, a Theme/Instant Movie, or two, but has to install that Additional Functional Content, to get the full compliment.
Just some observations from way-back,
(In Response to Ann)
As the Menus are PSD's, and the other Content items are common formats, that should work just fine.
Were I doing that, I would keep the folder/sub-folder structure from the previous version, just to keep things neat.
I have the same problem. I didn't know that the package wasn't complete when I purchased CS6. I need the library content to finish a project so I went back in CS 5.1 (still installed on my drive) but all the library content is gone. Is there a way I can have access my content? Did CS6 overwrited something?
(In Response to Proj.L)
As most Adobe programs do NOT overwrite previous versions, that should not be the cause here.
In CS 5.1, do you see ANY of the Additional Functional Content?
The exact location/Path for that installation might differ by OS version.
In a worst-case scenario, I would attempt a Repair Install for En CS 5.1, to see if that brings the content back.
There's nothing. I went to reinstall the Adobe Encore CS5.1 Library and in the installer, I have an "X" mark at the right of "Adobe Encore CS5.1 Library 4.1 GB" and it says "A newer version of this product is already installed". I can't install it.
That is worrisome.
Is your CS6 the cloud? Or a traditional (perpetual) license.
What do you see at this path:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Encore CS5.1\Library
Ann/Bill, you have bothinstalled CS6? Do you still have your old libraries?
So I'm wondering -- has anyone tried installing the CS6 trial? Does it include the library content? 'Cause if so, one could possibly install that on another rmachine and yank a copy of the content to copy to a production machine.
Seriously, though, this is really lame and I wonder what sort of snag would delay distribution of the content for "a few days". Doesn't Adobe have a version of it they could post that could be patchd later if it's missing something or whatever? What could possibly be holding this up? Why did they "release" the product if it wasn't really ready?
It seems the CS6 functional content installer does removes the previous 5.1 FC from the machine(although the path at which CS5.1 and CS6 libraries are installed are different, 5.1 FC is at C:\program files (x86) and 6.0 FC is at C:\Program files)
The solution to this issue would be - copy the cs6 library from C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Encore CS6\Library and place it at another loacation and rename it.
Now uninstall the CS6 Content and reinstall the 5.1 FC using the disc or the downloded FC you have. In this way you will recover back your 5.1 FC and can also use the 6.0 FC by pointing Encore to its location. I tried it and this works.
Alternately, you can use the 5.1 FC for CS6 by pointing the Encore CS6 library to its location.
I would also suggest that if you have the 5.1 functional content already then you can wait for the full downloadable FC because the CS6 provides only a limited set of menus.
And this problem will no longer be faced once the downloadable full version of CS6 FC will be available.
Can you confirm that the full functional content for CS6 will be available very soon?
In the interim, looks like we should back up the CS5.1 library before installing CS6; then copy it back. And point Encore CS6 to the 5.1 location until the FC is available.
CS4 Encore Library at C:\Programs Files (x86)\Adobe Encore CS4\Library\Corporate\All psd files
Use Explorer and do not copy over existing files or delete existing files.
CS4 Encore Library at C:\Programs Files\Adobe Encore CS4\Library\Corporate\
Do this for all other folders.
Now they will show up in the Encore library.
Thankful I found this thread. My CS5.5 Library was still intact so I created a new folder in CS6 which didn't have a LIBRARY folder.
I copied and pasted the files from from CS5.5 LIBRARY folder and everything works okay.
Complete clean install - no older versions on the computer, so cannot comment on what happens with the Library. If it IS being deleted/overwritten, that would be a real departure for Adobe programs, as they *usually* allow a user to keep the complete installation of an earlier version. Such a departure would be sad, indeed.
Installed CS6 and it also wiped out my 5.5 library... this is a royal PITA cause I don't have ANYTHING, and without anything, I can't create my own... I've got a project that's already a week late. I'm trying to download the functional content from their link, but if the other Windows users are correct, it won't do me any good... the functional content install from the discs only gave me a few menus under the General tab. I also went back to my 5.5 install disc to see if I could pull the functional content off of it, but it won't let me. Adobe really screwed this one up! I hope it gets all together soon for us Windows users, cause without it I'm in big trouble!
In the meantime, does anyone happen to have the proper naming conventions for creating my own buttons in Photoshop? cause I gotta get this project out the door ASAP...
Download the option that is available and just modify one of those menus. It will have the conventions in place. Starting with a template can help by gettng the right size for your start.

So... any news about when it will be available? I bought Adobe Creative Suite 6 Production Premium CS6 on may 7 and there is still no library content and I can't use Premiere Pro because it can't yet encode files from my XF100.
All that I have read has been "soon," but I do not know what that translates to. I would anticipate that most Adobe employees (who might know what "soon" means) will be on holiday (Memorial Day in the US), so we might not hear anything, until at least Tuesday, May 29. Not having the Additional Functional Content is not how Adobe usually does things, but who knows what all was going on?
Wish that I had more, but I am definitely out of that loop.

All right; time for some wild speculation.
For several cycles, the Encore library was separated from the traditional "functional content," which had been on a different disk for optional install, and put into the main program install. Well, except for those who installed from downloads, in which the installs were like the traditional - from a separate, optional source.
This cycle (CS6) it is back to an optional separate install, BUT it also appears to be, in its preliminary versions at least, a very reduced library. (This might be because it was all missing, and this is the part they rushed to add back.) But with problems with "the installer" I think they had a problem with the system that was created to deliver the new, combined functional content.
Obviously a huge problem, and probably a big embarrasment for someone.
The complete Encore Functional Content will be available in a few days through a separate download.

We are on june 22 and there is still no content. I paid for the CS 6 suite and for the content. I need the content for yesterday. That's pretty bad.
No reason to wait. I was conrfused in my last post here, and the full content can be installed.
Go to this link (same as post above).
Look down the page for "Additional Solution: Install the Resource Central library content."
Follow the instructions there; all the Encore content will be there.
Guys I am still not getting this I have downloaded the EncoreContentEnglish.zip file, and unziped it to
C:\Program Files\Adobe\ Adobe Encore CS6\library (I had to make the Library folder)
But I have nothing showing in the Encore CS6 Library tab. Just the General set.
Today is the first time I have used Encore. I have CS5 installed, but never used Encore CS5
I have checked Preferences and the Media tab is looking at the right location.
I have read and re-read http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/multi/library-functional-content-mi ssing.html
What have I missed?
I had unzipped it all,, and had 3.9Gb of data in the Library folder, but Encore was just not seeing it. I eventually tried changing the folder name, and pointed to the new name in Preferences, and it worked straight away! Go figure...
I have downloaded and extracted the premiere 6 content files however, during installation I get this message that a pending shutdown has been detected and to quit the install. There is no pending shutdown can anybody help? Can you help please. Thank you
