How to restore my copy of CS5 to my new Mac?
I have no disc
We bought a new iMac, it has mountain lion, os 10.8.5, I'd like to keep CS5, but I never got the discs, and the .dmg file is long gone.
Adobe tech sent me to ProDesignTools.com, and I downloaded a new .dmg
It won't run - says " app is from an unidentified developer"
I was running cs5 on liion fine. os 10.75
what are my options?
cc looks too expensive for a partime user which I am, but very skilled at what I do with it.
Any advise is helpful
Thanks a million, Gary
I checked the system requirements for CS5
os 10.5.7 or 10.6
I have 10.8.5 (Mountain Lion)
That may be it.
any workarounds, if successful, maybe problematic at best, I'm guessing.
It appears that Adobe is abondoning the age old practice of backward compatability, at least for a few years, in favor of this subscriptions fees cloud service stuff.
On the surface, for an occasional but enthusiastic user, the cost just went up about 10 fold !!!!
(Microsoft excel, has an incredible backward compatible system, for example)
thank you for the link about gatekeeper.
I could check the allow downloads from anywhere box, but.....
the PDF from Adobe states, only 10.5.7 or 10.6 - don't know if there would be issues ?
That sucks, as you have to keep current for everything else to work.
No wonder there are conspiracy theroists abounding.
