Hello, I read your suggestion and it helped in terms of downloading. Now the error is similar to that of elements
That screenshots shows the possible issue, but I dont understand what it means and what steps to take next. Should i uninstall everything again?
Edit: Whoops, had to blur out some names to respect the privacy of my friends.
Branched this out to a new discussion and moved it to the Photoshop General Discussion forum. It looks like Photoshop CS6 is crashing for you at some point. Are you able to open the program? Downloading refers to downloading the install files your error indicates Photoshop stopped working.
To help us help you, please look over this article, and add the necessary information: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1042147?tstart=0
Also, when PS crashes, what do you have in the way of error, or warning messages, in your Event Viewer, in both the Applications and System Tabs?
Well, as the screen shot shows I get the "Photoshop cs6 has stopped working..." error message. At first it wouldnt download, but Jeff's directions helped me work around error 109. Now it just wont open! At all! Same thing for elements. They both install with no conflictions (I restart promptly when it asks me too) I have no programs running in the background during the downloading progress and I have turned off internet security temporarily during the complete download progress. As you might have seen in a prior discussion screenshot, I have a Windows Vista 32 bit home basic, and its pretty up-to-date, the only things i skip are minor updates like "Upgrade to Internet explorer 9.0" Or such.
Files that help describe the problem:
Here are my system specs. Let me know if you need more
That computer, as currently configured, is totally inadequate.
For one thing, Windows Vista is not supported.
1 GB of RAM is totally inadequate even if the application launches. The bare minimum is really 2 GB, 4 GB is a little better, 8 GB is definitely better and 16 GB and more is much, much better.
I have heard it is runnable in Vista, which is why I decided to try anyway. So what you are saying is if I upgrade the RAM I should be good? I'm still finding it a bit hard to let go of this computer, its never given me program issues outside of photoshop so I dont find the need to buy a totally new one....
…So what you are saying is if I upgrade the RAM I should be good?…
Nowhere did I say that. Read my post again.
I did not mean to imply that the Vista OS (which is definitely not supported, regardless of what you may have "heard"—"Runnable" is very different from supported anyway) and the RAM were your computer's only inadequacies.
What I quoted there are the absolute bare minimum requirements to run CS6.
And what I said, going out on a limb, was "That computer, as currently configured, is totally inadequate."
…I'm still finding it a bit hard to let go of this computer, its never given me program issues outside of photoshop…
That's totally irrelevant. We're discussing running Photoshop CS6 here, not earlier versions.
Ps CS6 is a veritable resource hog. It demands tons of RAM, tons and tons of free hard disk space, enough disk space or even a dedicated hard drive for scratch files, and a very powerful graphics card with a lot of VRAM.
No, I'm going to keep it, and purchase a refurbished Windows 7 laptop with the reccomended specs. I need photoshop for my career so i will just budget carefully while still getting a laptop that can run it efficiently
