I have CS6 on a Mac (10.7.5). I have updated all Adobe software installed on my machine, including the Application Manager, and deleted application preferences, but every time I open the Folio Builder pallete in InDesign, it says "a software update is required to use DPS." I've downloaded both AdobeDigitalPublishingPatch-CS6-26-3.0.0 and AdobeDigitalPublishingPatch-CS6-27.0.0. The latter says "Update Failed. The patch is not applicable for you."
Can someone explain how I can get DPS to work? Thanks!
P.S. I'm not a creative cloud member.
Try using the InDesign CC/CS6 link on this page to navigate to the DPS Desktop Tools installer for InDesign CS6. If running that updater doesn't work, let us know.
Have you tried choosing "Help > Updates" in InDesign? If so, are you prompted to install the DPS Desktop Tools?
You might also try clearing the cache in your browser or using a different browser to install the tools. You might be trying to install from a cached file.
I've solved the problem by myself. As posted above, the "Update Failed" was the issue. You could've asked what version of InDesign I have. Turns out I had Version 8 instead of 8.0.1, meaning the program kept failing to update to the most recent version, which one of the above posted screens suggests. I simply reinstalled InDesign, and it worked.
