I have been using Macs and Adobe Products since the 1990's. The results is I have a number of programs such as the 3D program Infini D which keeps me with one foot in the past, as it will only work up to Mac OS 10.4.11 (G5 Power PC Dual 2.7 GHz ) . I have another computer (Mac Mini) which operates under OS 10.9.2 and uses CS 5.5. So its not that I am against updating, it is that Infini D is so simple and fast that I don't want to give it up.
Because of the convenience of going back and forth from my 3D program to After Effects I do much of my work on the G5. My G5 recently died and I purchased another used G5 to replace it. I switched over the hard drives but soon discovered that the CS2 needed to be activated by Adobe. During the process I discover that Adobe no longer supports CS2. Adobe does provide a path to un -install/ install CS2 that will have the means to be activated. However Adobe warns that the CS2 was only designed for mac OS 10.2.8 to OS 10.3.8. I have used CS 2 on OS 10.4.11 since I purchased it from Adobe and I dont recall at the time, that there was any mention of such a restriction. Is this replacement different in some way.
Has anybody went through this uninstall/install of CS2 ? Will this replacement by Adobe operate under OS 10.4.11 ? I suppose I have no choice but to install this offering by Adobe as CS2 will not work at present. I am more or less looking for some pointers or advice and wondering if there are any problems to be aware of.
Thanks for your time and any help,
