I downloaded the installer for the trial of Photoshop CS6 Extended, however upon installing it and using the trial, I do not have access to the 3D menu or any other Extended features. When the program starts up, it only reads Adobe Photoshop CS6 and the About Photoshop popup in the Help menu reveals it to be CS6 instead of Extended. Have I taken a wrong turn somewhere? I had problems with the download manager too in that after signing into it with my account the download did not immediately start and instead I had to select Photoshop CS6 from the list within the manager. Any help would be much appreciated, thank you!
Which other Extended features are missing?
Your computer might lack the proper GPU for the 3D features.
The trial should always be Extended and the Extended features be »inactivated« on registration with a basic license.
Maybe contributors on this Forum might be able to help:
Hey there, thanks for the reply. Prior to the CS6 trial, I was using CS5 Extended and I was able to access the 3D menu and able to use 3D just fine without crashes or lag. As far as I know, the only other feature of the Extended version that regular CS6 does not have is Quantative Analysis, which I have never used before, so I have no idea where to look for that or if it is missing or not. I'll give that forum a go aswell.
Are you seeing the 3D menu grayed out, or is it just missing?
Very occasionally we hear from folks who say the Photoshop trial does not expose the Extended features, where they really should be showing.
I don't ever recall hearing a workaround or why this might happen. Did you download the software directly from Adobe? Is there any chance it's set to run in compatibility mode for XP?
I never entered a serial number, I'm still running the trial. Assuming the menu is in the same place it was in CS5 Extended (with File, Edit, etc) then the menu is completely missing. I downloaded the download manager from the Adobe site from the Photoshop Trial page and the download manager downloaded the setup.
