I've just upgraded to CS5.5 from CS3. I want to uninstall CS3 and have gone to Applications/Utilities/Adobe Installers/ Add or remove CS3... as instructed in other posts. But this doesn't seem to do anything after asking me for my password. Nothing happens. I have looked on the original install disk but can't find a deinastaller. I'm using a Mac Lion 10.7.2. What should I do?
I just solved a CS3 uninstall issue I've been fighting for many days. Like many people with similar problems (in multiple posts I read) my problems began when I tried to migrate my CS3 suite via Mac's Migration Assistant utility to a new system. Apparently this is not the route to go for Adobe apps. After this expereince, I would now recommend deactivate and uninstall and then re-install from disc when possible.
I literally tried to uninstall and re-install 5 times, I then also tried the oft referenced CS Cleaner Tool a couple times and that didn't work either. I researched and stumbled upon an app/utility called AppDelete via:
I am not associated w/ company, I have nothing to gain: this is a legit, satisfied, (elated) consumer review!
I still had all my apps in Applications following my last install attempt. I purchased the app via site for $7.99. In one fell swoop, I simply grabbed and dragged all my CS apps to the AppDelete 'garbage can'. It listed and found a bunch of 'hidden' files within preferences, library, etc. It listed all associated files, gives you the option of deselecting files/settings, and then quickly removed them.
Really wish I'd found this before about 10+ wasted hours of inserting discs!!
