I am trying to install cs4 design premier on my new macbook pro running osx 10.7.3. I have the dvds, also tried downloading from a link somewhere in the forums here, same problem with each. The dvds do work on my older macbook.
When I open the setup file, the red box appears in the dock and I am prompted to enter my computer password. When I do that another red box appears in the dock, this one bounces, the original one has the light that shows it is active. A status window opens that says Adobe Creative Suite Design Premium Installer: Initializing on the top and main_pageSubTitle in the window. The status bar gets to about 80% and I can hear the dvd running, then the extra red box stops bouncing and the dvd stops and the status bar stops and that is that. Nothing more.
I have tried verifying and repairing my hd and the Adobe CS5 Cleaner Tool. Also have tried creating a different user account on my computer and installing there and also starting up in safe mode (though I am not sure I did that correctly, I tried a few times but I don't see any indication that I am in safe mode once the computer starts other than taking a little longer to boot up.
Please help! I can't afford to upgrade my cs right now!
