I have CS4 I am getting "installer database is corrupted contact Adobe support"

Jun 15, 2013 5:35 AM

For the second time I received "licensing for this product has quit working" for my CS4. After an hour and a half with tech support a month ago they finally sent me to a download link to download the full version of CS4 basic Photoshop.That worked!

This time I downloaded ALL the Adobe speacial CS4&CS5 instuctions for license repair. I followed ALL of them in order to the letter. Using the terminal and entering "sudo python" dragging the repair tool into the terminal etc, etc. After all that I tried to launch CS4 only to be greeeted with "the installer database is corrupted, contact Adobe tech support".

I was told there is no support for CS4 anymore. I was told there is no download link in the archives for downloading CS4. I do not beleive they deleted the link because you can still go back to 2007 for archive versions of FLASH PLAYER so how do I get them to provide me with the link to CS4? I want to upgrade to CS5 then CS6, but for now I stuck.
