CS5->CS6 upgrade hangs, locks windows task manager, does nothing else

Jan 30, 2013 2:24 PM

Got the CS6 Design Standard Upgrade, hoping to upgrade from CS5 Design Premium. Could that be the problem? I don't need everything in Premium and this stuff is ridiculously expensive.


Anyway, I put the disk in, nothing happens. I run set-up.exe, the disk spins up, then nothing continues to happen. I've watched it for up to 5 minutes and nothing.


Set-up.exe is not in Applications, but it is in Processes in windows task manager. However, there is no actual activity at all. When I try to end the process, WTM locks up. I have to either hard reboot or eject the disk in order to recover.


What gives? I can post PDApp.log if need be, but I don't know how much help it'll be.

    Does the PDApp.log file contain any specific error messages?  You may want to review Troubleshoot with install logs | CS5, CS5.5, CS6 - -cs5.html.

    Some security tool is blocking your stuff. Check around. Run as admin, turn off your virus scanner, turn off UAC.

    Excellent thank you for the update j.makela9999.  I am curious if you copy the update from the Samsung drive do you receive a disk error?
