Updating CS6

Dec 29, 2013 2:35 PM

I updated to Maverick and trying to update CS6 and get the error messag "unable to write to location users/johnburket2/library/applicationsupport/adobe.  Please add write permission and try again.  It does not look like tia file exists as I have run a search.  Please advise on how to get the update to work.  Thanks.

    Sounds like you didn't copy all the app files from another partition/machine, or your permissions are just broken.


    That directory should exist, and should be writable by you. If that directory does not exist, you need to copy it from the old partition/machine, or reinstall the software.

    The permissions problem would be on the application support folder, where you have a problem (bad permissions or missing) with one or more directories.  Without seeing your machine to know exactly where the problem is - I can't tell.


    Fixing the perimissions, copying the folders from backup, or reinstalling is the way to get it fixed.
