    This indicates the DMG you downloaded is corrupt.  Do you receive any messages inside the Adobe Download Assistant?

    I am having exactly the same problem. I have now spent at least eight hours downloading TWICE, restarting the download assistant, restarting my entire system, etc, and nothing is working. I'm seriously annoyed - I live in a country where I pay for bandwidth. Can I not just download the trial version without using the Download Assistant? I never have these problems with other downloads, so I can only conclude the problem is with the Download Assistant itself. I have tried opening the dmg directly from the downloads folder and that doesn't work either.

    I have this problem too. Extracting takes hours and finally doesn't succeed, produces an error message (about not being able to find something). Macbook with OS 10.6.8.

     

    Frustrating and time-wasting!

    If you are continuing to experience difficulties with the Adobe Download Assistant then I would recommend initiating a direct download by following the directions listed in http://forums.adobe.com/thread/981369.

    I solved my problem with GIMP (http://www.gimp.org/macintosh/), which downloaded and installed with no problems at all in about 15 minutes. So far it does everything I need of it. If and when that changes I may consider Photoshop again.

    Hi.

     

    Thanks, I did this. Now when I try to open anything I get this message:

     

    CS6 Design and Web Premium

     

    Adobe Application Manager, required to verify your license, is missing or damaaged.

     

    Please download a new copy of Adobe Application Manager from

    http://www.adobe.com/go//applicationmanager

     

    I'll try, but am wondering whether this process will ever end.
