What happens when you try?
Our University offered the software in four separate downloads namely, CS6DesignandWebPremium64bit.part1.exe; CS6DesignandWebPremium64bit.part2.rar; CS6DesignandWebPremium64bit.part3.rar; CS6DesignandWebPremium64bit.part4.rar
I downloaded these files on a new folder on my desktop.
Now to answer your question, when I double click the .indd file, a window pops up with the message "How do you want to open this type of file (.indd)? Look for an app in the store More options"
I have a windows 8 laptop and I clicked on "more options".
Although I saw several options, none were adobe creative suite 6.
So then I clicked on "look for another application on this PC?"
A window opened up and I was able to browse to the folder where I had saved the downloaded file.
I had 2 options:
(a) Application file with the name "CS6DesignandWebPremium64bit.part1.exe" and (b) a File folder with the name "CS6DesignandWebPremium64bit". I clicked on this second folder which opened up 2 additional folders named "Build" and "Exceptions" AND a third file named "CS6DesignandWebPremium64bit.aamee
At that point I was not sure what else to do since I was clueless what these files or folders were.
Doesn't sound like you ran the installer after downloading. Run the .exe file, then you may need to run another setup file from the extracted folder.
I did run the installer file after the download, the .exe file
What other setup file should I run?
Do you see a file named Setup.exe in one of the extracted folders?
No I don't see any setup.exe file.
My recollection is the original part1 .exe file should have extracted some folders, probably called Creative Suite (or similar) among other things. There should be a setup.exe file in that folder, but maybe I'm misremembering. Are there any instructions included with the downloads? A Readme file?
If not, you should be asking the IT folks at the uninversiioty for some help.
