Photoshop CS6 30 day Trial

Tags: #photoshop #cs6_trial

I'm trying to download the trial version of Adobe Photoshop but it's not sucessful and don't know why!! I downloaded the Download manager. I've opened it up, signed in with my Adobe ID, selected the program to download (Adobe Photoshop) but then nothing happens. The screen stays as it is, with no option son the screen to go anywhere. Not sure if it's of any importance but I selected for the trial version to be saved in my Program files folder. At this stage I only have about 1 week left of the trial download as I signed in to download the trial version around the 17/18 May. Until now I just couldn't figure out what to do and didn't spot this forum until today.  Help! Thanks, Anita

    The trial starts when you install the software.  As for what was causing your difficulties it was the selection of the Program Files which was the source.

    Correct it started when you installed Photoshop. 

     

    As for why the Adobe Download Assistant is unable to download the install files to the Program files folder.  This is because it would require elevated administrator access to write the files there.  Since it is just a download manager there is no reason to request this right.  As you observed when you run the installer it installs the application to the Program Files folder.
