    How to find the Photoshop installation folder?

    rixter123 Level 1

      Hello,

       

      I'm supposed to create an installer to install an extension (instead of using Adobe Extension Manager).

       

      For this, how can I find the Photoshop installation folders (both 32 and 64 bit)? Are there registry keys these locations are stored? How do I do this for Photoshop CS5, CS6 and CC?

       

      Thanks!

          I think I (almost) found the solution. In the registry, the paths are specified in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Photoshop. The 32-bit ones are in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Adobe\Photoshop. This folder in registry has subfolders corresponding to the versions of Photoshop installed. eg: 70.0 for CC, 12.0 for CS5, etc.

           

          Is there a place that I can get a list of these version numbers? (eg: to check what number corresponds to CS5.1 etc)
