I've had to switch to my old mac for a job and needed to use illustrator. I'm a cc customer and have my main copy installed on a windows 7 PC but unfortunately that's out of action for a while. My mac is a 2007 mac pro 2.33Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB Ram. It's pretty slow now but is OK for illy and other basic tasks. Stupidly I uninstalled all the CS6 apps that came when I initially bought a CC subscription. I thought, as I'm going to be using my mac for a bit I'll update my illy version. The problem is that now I can't install the new versions of CC as it's saying they're not supported by my OS. I have no intention of upgrading the operating system on this mac as it's too old to care about or spend money on but now I've lost all my CS6 apps, I essentially have a subscription with no usable software!! This is a tad annoying and renders my machine (old yes but usable still) useless in a design capacity.
Anyone got any ideas as to what I can do? Can I download an OS compatible legacy version of Illustrator from the CC site? I'm a genuine customer so it's frustrating that I'm limited to illegally downloading a legacy version if not (sorry adobe but it's true!) Or...will I be forced into updating my OS (debatable performance on this machine) or...is this a way of the fast paced world of apple and adobe telling me to grow up, stop expecting to use software/hardware for a 7 year period and buy a new computer (sad state of affairs if so but I guess I understand). If it's the latter I'm buggered because money is tight!
Hey John. That's great thanks. Problem is my version of the Application support doesn't show the more info link under the apps downloads. I'm therefore unable to navigate to an older version. Do I need a new CC app manager and if so can you provide a link? Thanks again.
