I definitely get that it would have been more appropriate to not use the migration assistant. But now when I try to uninstall CS4 I get an error message. Startup Error: Required support files are missing. So I don't think I can uninstall and I can't go forward. I could completely start all over again but it took 16 hours to use the Migration Assistant so I would prefer to not use the Time Machine to wipe everything out.
Thanks for your help in advance!
LMGehling honestly I would recommend starting from the beginning again. Some of the worst support issues I have experienced with customers is when they have used the Migration Assistant/EZ transfer type solutions. The migration should go a lot faster if you tell it to only transfer settings and documents.
You can try manually removing the items related to Adobe on your system. They should primarily be located in the following locations:
User/<UserName>/Library Application Support/Adobe
I have had exactly the same problem and followed the above reccomendations.
Now when I try and install CS4 it gives me a start up error and tells me that required resources are missing?
Note, I do also have Photoshop CS5 on this computer which migrated without any problems. I just need CS4 for InDesign, Illustrator and Dreamweaver.
if you follow all 7 steps you can dl a trial here: http://prodesigntools.com/download-adobe-cs4-and-cs3-free-trials-here.html
and activate with your serial.
if you have a problem dl'g, you didn't follow all 7 steps. the most common error involves failing to meticulously follow steps 1,2 and/or 3 (which adds a cookie to your system enabling you to download the correct version from adobe.com).
