CS6 eyedropper tool shift+click doesn't work

Hi!

 

I have a problem with the eyedropper tool in illustrator cs6, I can't pick a color with shift+click for a gradient color.

The color is picked but not apply in my shape!

 

I look over this forum, it's seem be a bug and a new version of illustrator correct that 16.0.4.

But I can't do this update, I check and I have no update available...

I'm on PC win7. How can I do?

 

Ps: it's seem I have another bug, with the deplacement of pattern when I double click on the black arrow, I change values but sometimes nothing happen...

    From the downloads at adobe.com, it seems as though the 16.0.4 was only for the Macintosh.

    It's almost the end of april and Adobe still hasn't fixed this bug? Terrible! I noticed no improvements with the update, and now my workflow is handicapped thanks to this. At very least release a downgrade patch!

    Hello! I have the same problem and actually I doubt that this one is a bug since Deke McLelland successfully demonstrated this technique in one of the earliest builds of Illustrator CS6 for Windows. At the moment I have version 16.2 (on Windows 7x64) and yet still cant get this trick to work. So I suppose there's got to be some solution.

    If it's a bug, then it doesn't make any sense at all. How Deke McClelland did manage to perform this task somewhere in the autumn of 2012 on a PC using CS6? The only explanation would be that this bug appeared in some later build of Illustrator CS6, wich doesn't sound very plausible to me. Otherwise I just don't get it...
