I just bought a new macbook and tried to install my creative suite (cs2 + upgrade cs5) from a disc. But it says: Cannot install, because it's aPowerPC-Program... Now what can I do? Can I download it from If so, how?

    CS2 is PowerPC and won't run at all on Intel-based Macs (all new Macs) - but there's no need to first install that before inserting the CS5 upgrade disc.


    Just insert the CS5 upgrade disc and enter your CS5 upgrade serial number.


    The CS5 installer will request the serial number of an earlier qualifying version.


    Enter the CS2 serial number and the CS5 installer will complete the installation of CS5.
