I have previously updated my Mac OS to 10.9.4 and it was only until today that i wanted to use After Effects. I open up After Effects and i get an error, after some googling I am taken to a download page for the After Effects update. I downloaded the update, but when I ran it it said I had insufficient privileges. After a long string of events that involved tricking my computer into thinking it was brand new to make an admin account, i made an admin account and from there got access to the root account. Once on the root account I figured that all permissions would be open, but no, I still get the same error message of, "Please contact your system Administrator if you wish to apply updates on your machine. Updates have been suppressed by your Administrator."
Is there a button I need to press or a command i need to type in the root account that will allow me to update AE? Any help would be much appreciated.
This is not about the administrator for the computer; rather, this is about the administrator of your software licenses. Whoever distributed your Adobe software seems to have chosen the option in that distribution to disable updates. You'll need to talk with them.
Thanks, that makes a lot more sense.
