    Quite possible. The first generation of MPBs did not support the required processor extensions. But we can't be sure, since you didn't provide the exact model nor the version of OSX you are using, which of course could be the actual issue here...

    I have a 2006 MacBook also, and I'm facing the same problem.. My processor is 2 GHz Intel Core Duo, and I'm using 10.6.8. Any suggestions??

    you probably also do not meet the minimum specs:


    • Multicore Intel processor with 64-bit support.
    • Mac OS X v10.6.8 or v10.7. Adobe Creative Suite 5, CS5.5, and CS6 applications support Mac OS X Mountain Lion (v10.8) when installed on Intel based systems. Refer to the CS6 FAQ for more information about Mac OS X Mountain Lion support.**
    • 4GB of RAM (8GB recommended)
    • 15.5GB of available hard-disk space for installation; additional free space required during installation (cannot install on a volume that uses a case-sensitive file system or on removable flash storage devices)
    • Additional disk space required for disk cache, preview files, and other working files (10GB recommended)
    • 1280x900 display with 16-bit color and 512MB of VRAM; 1680x1050 display required and second professionally calibrated viewing display recommended for Adobe SpeedGrade
    • OpenGL 2.0–capable system
