CS4 Installer still hangs at 90% on iMac

There is a documented problem with the CS4 installer hanging at 90% when installing on a Mac. I have a new iMac and have this problem.


Adobe's on-site solution is to create a new User with admin privileges, but this did NOT work for me.


I tried installing from the original CD and from a downloaded version of the software with the same bad results.


Can someone help me resolve this issue?

    CS4 is not compatible with the current 10.8.x versions of OSX.

    I'm not running the whole CS4 suite on my Mac under Mountain Lion but I am using Dreamweaver CS4 with no problems.


    Have you got Adobe Air installed? If so uninstal it and also run the uninstaller for CS4 and then try again.
