I am trying to run CS4 on my new retina macbook 10.8. Since no dvd drive I shared and then downloaded the application folder from my old computer. Bridge will open fine. Photoshop will not open at all. I get an “error 6″.
I tried downloading the updates 11.0.1 and 11.0.2, but this computer will not open the update either.
photoshop runs fine on the old G5, so I know it is some configuration with mountain lion on this old cs4??
I see from tech support that CS4 is compatible with mountain lion. Any idea how I can get it to work?
Depends on how you installed. Did you transfer files of old CS4 or did you transfer files of the installation and then do an install? The first may not work as PS puts files in specific places and you may not know where to look.
Your best bet is to clone the CS4 installer onto a USB flash drive and install it from scratch.
