- CS5.5 and older are not supported on Mac 10.11 any more.
- Installation has to be done with the original installer, not via backup from another computer or via time machine. If you did this, it will fail to work properly, you have to uninstall it, run the Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool (available on Adobe's site) and install it again.
I installed a fresh version of Adobe Creative Cloud 2015 (Education) onto OSX 10.11 using the Creative Cloud Packager App. The machine was brand new.
The only apps running on our networks are CS6, CC-2014 and CC-2015. All our Macs are at least OSX 10.9, but these new machines were the first with 10.11 El Capitan
did you ever get an answer to this? I am trying to deploy this app to 120 brand new iMacs on Active Directory with the same setup and InDesign will not launch. Spent 3.5 hours on the phone with overseas support yesterday where all they succeeded in doing was reinstalling the app 4 times and attempting to change permissions. But they have NO CLUE what i'm talking about when i'm trying to explain how the Active Directory account works and all that.
The workaround for me was to switch all of our 10.11.x Macs from AFP and roaming profiles to SMB and locally stored profiles. I also recommended folks start working from their local desktop as much as possible, rather than from files on the network shares. Working locally seems absolutely necessary when folks are packaging Illustrator files.
There is a document published on Adobe's website that says specifically they do not support saving to a network share, so I guess that also means no network accounts as well.
this ended up being my only solution as well.
I have a local home directory, with a local "library" folder, but then use symlinks to their network home. We had to keep the student's files all stored on the network because the computers have to be re-imageable without having to get into the business of backing up local files. Working from a local desktop on lab shared computers in a k-12 environment is not good.
