I always have to ask. Did you migrate (move) your CS4 installs from your old computer to your new?
Migrating Adobe products should never be done as a way to install CS4. The installs are tied to the machine they came from.
It's best to install from the downloadable installers if your Mac does not have a DVD drive.
When I purchased CS4 I received discs so I loaded them into my new computer. Illustrator and photoshop work but indesign won't open with the error 5. I am not sure how to install from the downloadable installers, my mac doesn't have a dvd drive, I did buy one for it. If you don't mind showing me how this can be done I will be very grateful!
I don't think it fair to have to buy the upgrade from adobe, when I have already purchased a perfectly good program. Adobe are becoming too invasive I think.
Oh I see what you mean I can download the program, so I will have to uninstall first, I was reluctant in case I lost illustrator and photoshop. I am sorry if I am a bit slow! Thanks so much for your help.
Ah so I won't have to uninstall the other two then?
Do the following as Administrator unless your account allows you to administer your computer.
Just to be safe, uninstall using the uninstallers found in their respective app folders.
Checkmark Remove Preference if given that option
Use the CSCleaner to remove any remnants that may cause install problems
Run your disk utility and choose "repair permissions", then install from from the downloaded installers.
It's a bit to do, but it gives you a clean install.
Thanks so much, I'll let you know how I go.
I would definite like to hear the results. Thanks!
Thank you thank you thank you! All done and was easy as!
You have been a great help I would never have figured that out myself!
I might ask another question if I may, 10.9.5 computer that I now have has a different filing system to my previous mac. Where can I go to look on tuts to get this happening, I have only had this computer a month and am currently doing chemo so my brain is foggy.
Many thanks Janet
Glad that worked out, and that's because you were willing to go the course.
Ok, I think video tutorials are best. They take no more than 3-10 minutes of your time, and you can replay then if you missed anything.
Lynda.com has the best. if you afford a subscription, you have access to the full library.
So lets start with the Finder (10.7 but still good) and when you are done, there are Mavericks related tutorials in the list to the right.
After this basic one, you can decide what else you want to learn.
Good luck on that chemo, too.
Yeah, all good, I will be fine. I'll check out the tuts thanks Janet
