Tell us more about your computer. What processor does it have? What version of Mac OS do you have? v10.6.4? v10.6.5?
Are you certain that you chose to install After Effects and Premiere Pro when you isntalled Master Collection?
Regarding Rosetta: Mac OSX v10.6.x thinks that Rosetta is required to run After Effects. Rosetta is an optional component on your Mac OSX installation disk. Install it.

State: EnabledStartup Disk: Macintosh HDI just installed a new internal hard drive, before I installed any programs. 500GB 7400, after that installation I installed Mac Box Set with snow leopard after that, I installed the Master Collection that I bought today. I did select ALL programs on the initial installation of CS5 Master Collection. ( Can I double check it somewhere to make sure I did? ) I have no idea where these two programs went to.

Your processor, the Intel Core Duo, is a 32-bit proceesor. After Effects CS5 and Premiere Pro CS5 require a 64-bit processor. They won't install and run on your 32-bit system.
Here are the system requirements:
Dang it!!! (that's a huge $600 bummer 'dang it') I bought the Master Collection, from school today, for the bonus of having this addition. Infact, I exchanged the CS5 Design Premium for it, so I could use After Effects for a class. Gosh, I never knew I needed a 64-bit processor. What can I do now? Will Adobe take back the Master Collection, registration and all that jazz so that I can just go buy what I need? I mean spending all this money to find out that I can't even use the program is a huge disappointment. ugghh
Not sure how it is for Edu, but in the regular MC there's AE and PPro CS4 included.... You could use that. But Todd should know the exact details...
Thanks Mylenium! I'm pretty sure the Edu runs the same as the regular MC, just cost less and we have to say that we won't use it for commercial use. Agreed, Todd would know, I'm just waiting. I have CS5 MC, where would I find the CS4? Would I have to put the original installation disk back in to see if it comes up again? I already installed everything...
I went on to the Mac Forum and asked about upgrading the processor, really keeping my fingers crossed here, because spending double $$$ for a program I can't even use....is...a waste.
There's an additional disc that contains the After Effects CS4 and Premiere Pro CS4 installer for 32-bit systems. Further infomation is here:
You can't upgrade Apple laptop processors. The Core "1" Duo was only used for a few months between January and October 2006 by Apple before the 64-bit Core 2 came out. You just happen to be one of the very very few owners of a 32-bit Intel MacBook.
And if I can offer my opinion, I will bet you real money that Mac OS X 10.7 will require a 64-bit CPU. So start saving up your shekels. And honestly, CS5 on a 4 year old laptop isn't going to give you any better performance than CS4. I would save your money for CS6 and a new iCore MacBook Pro/Air.
Thank you Todd. I checked it out. I also spoke with a technician via LIVE chat. and they gave me the address to view the Release Notes or something, so I am going to check that out. Im sure I will keep in contact with you. I inserted the "Content" disk, but still didn't see anything for the installation of a CS4 version. No worries, I opend a CASE with Adobe, so I will keep pressing on.
Navarro, thanks for the tip, but there's always going to be better processors, better adobe programs coming, better Macbook that make you want to keep buying. :)) For now, as a student, I'm fine with what I have until I graduate and get a job, I'm gonna have to stick with my computer and make it work. Thanks tho for your advice.I'm sure I will need it again at some point.
