The ACR 5.6 installer worked ok as far as overwriting the beta with the release version on my computer.
You should be able to find the Camera RAW.8bi file, by searching your hard drive, if you're on Windows, at least. Not sure what the name is on a Mac but I'd suspect it starts with Camera RAW as the first part of the filename, at least.
I'm in the same boat with Snow Leopard. I have the beta version running, try to install the final version of ACR5.6, but it tells me that 5.6 is already installed. It doesn't seem to hamper functionality since the beta works beyond the expiration date, but it sure would be nice to get the final version installed. Any ideas from the Mac side? thanks, Bob
Just use the manual install process outlined on a secondary page linked from the main ACR 5.6 update page:
Or does that not work because you're on Snow Leopard?
That did the trick! Many thanks, Bob
