Was did what you read?
Did you use the Adobe Uninstaller? It gets installed in:
./Applications/ Utilities/ Adobe/ …
In addition, look for the CS4Clean script on the Adobe site, download it and run it.
With previous versions (up to CS2) one could just drag the Photoshop folder to the trash to uninstall. Starting with CS3 and continuing with CS4 you cannot do that, under any circumstances, ever. Now you must use the Adobe Uninstaller.
When you install CS3 or CS4, the default installation puts the uninstaller in your Applications folder as follows:
./Applications/ Utilities/ Adobe/…
The CS3Clean and CS4Clean script are provided by Adobe for when you have improperly uninstalled or trashed CS3 or CS4.
You can read all about it on the Adobe site.
Please let us know if this works.
I have a similar problem.
I have a macbook pro with a 320gb internal disk and a 64gb solid state disk. i run the OS and apps off the SSD and keep my data on the spinning disk.
My system has been running well for months. it crashed today. i fixed permissions on all disks.
I can start photoshop CS4 when i boot off the internal disk, but i get "Error 6" when i boot off the SSD.
I have read a bunch of articles and tried some things that haven't worked.
I'm up for un-installing and re-installing if it will help.
I finally got hold of adobe customer support. They told me I had to un-install and re-install--problem is, they want me to un-install ALL my adobe products, including lightroom. I am in the middle of processing about 1,000 raw images from a three day location shoot, and just dont see how this is possible.
