Before I begin, a simple request: no coaxing to upgrade or move to adobe cloud, - Neither is an option. I'd really just like some honest advice from those who have tried, suceeded/or failed at installing and/or running CS4 on Lion.
I. WILL IT (CS4 Design Premium) INSTALL?
Like a fool, I didn't install CS4 (Design Premium) on my Lion partition before I upgraded it from Snow Leop.(I'd been thinking that I'd be best off, installing clean)
Now I'm concerned, the install (or any of the endless patches will fail). It's getting to be a real pain rebooting into SnowLeop.
II. HOW WELL / and WHAT WILL IT RUN?
I can deal with slightly flukey behaviour since I won't be dealing wth production work - but I'd rather skip the install/patch/activation ordeal if it's really a lost cause.
IIb): which if any, of the programs are problematic...
It's important for me to get some feedback, BEFORE attempting since I MAY need to deactivate my laptop version before proceeding - and frankly CS (esp Acro) has become the biggest PITA to install. . I'll post a second, activation question seperately.
Many Thanks for your advice.
