    A problem Adobe Premium Suite.


      I just bought the Adobe Premium Suite Student Edition. I tried installing it the other night on my Mac and the only thing that would install was Photoshop and a few of the smaller programs all of the other major programs like After Effects, Illistrator, Audition said that my system didnt meet the minimum requirements. I have a Mac Pro OS X 10.6.8 with a 2 TB hard drive, 32 GB of memory, 2x 2.4 GHz quad-core Intel Xeon and I’m running a ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card. So I have no idea why they wouldnt install.... Help please.

          Did you compare the tech specs to your machine? You will find them here.


          • Multicore Intel processor with 64-bit support
          • Mac OS X v10.5.8 or v10.6.3; Mac OS X v10.6.3 required for GPU-accelerated performance in Adobe Premiere Pro
          • 2GB of RAM (4GB or more recommended)
          • 20.6GB of available hard-disk space for installation; additional free space required during installation (cannot install on a volume that uses a case-sensitive file system or on removable flash storage devices)
          • 1280x900 display (1280x1024 recommended) with qualified hardware-accelerated OpenGL graphics card, 16-bit color, and 256MB of VRAM
          • Adobe-certified GPU card for GPU-accelerated performance in Adobe Premiere Pro
          • Some GPU-accelerated features in Adobe Photoshop Extended require graphics support for Shader Model 3.0 and OpenGL 2.0
          • 7200 RPM hard drive for editing compressed video formats; RAID 0 for uncompressed
          • Core Audio–compatible sound card
          • DVD-ROM drive compatible with dual-layer DVDs (SuperDrive for burning DVDs; external Blu-ray burner for creating Blu-ray Disc media)
          • Java Runtime Environment 1.5 or 1.6
          • QuickTime 7.6.2 software required for QuickTime features
          • Adobe Flash Player 10 software required to play back DVD projects exported as SWF files


          Your system looks like it should work but I don't know for sure because I can't see the system profile. Make sure that you've got Administrator permissions and that your system is all up to date. There could be a display size issue. If that's not it I'd give Adobe customer support a call. I'm running the MC on a much less capable machine.

              It's your display. It's below the minimum resolution.1280 X 900 required, 1280 X 720 available. Maybe you could adjust your display settings but if this is the max resolution of your monitor then these other programs are not going to install.

                What Rick said. And for future reference: Whenever posting such questions, provide the install log. No doubt the "Display requirements not met" error is listed prominently multiple times there. AVoids a lot of song and dance...
