I'm trying to install After Effects CS5.5 render engine on a set of render nodes that don't have DVD drives (or any optical drive). I was advised to copy the install files from the DVD to the desktop via flash drive. I did that and the install starts OK but then it asks for the 2nd disc. I copied that disc's content to the desktop also but I can't get it to find it. Anyone have any thoughts?
You should be able to copy all of the files off of the disc into the same folder and it should work, but if you are having trouble, you can download the trial of CS5.5.
The trials are located here - http://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cs5-5-direct-download-links.html. There is a forum post about installing previous trials - http://forums.adobe.com/thread/981369.
