CS6 won't work in Mac OS 10.6.8. Please help

After successful installation on iMac with OS 10.6.8, none of the CS components (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc) will open (message "not supported on this Mac"). This is contrary to the stated CS6 system requirements at www.adobe.com and is exceedingly frustrating. Please help.

Hi there,
     Mac 10.6.8 is compatible to install CS6. But please check the processor and other system requirements which you are using. You require Multi-processor to activate CS6. You can check the system requirements under "Apple icon > About this Mac".
Regards,
Jairaj

  • External HD won't work and cannot repair or erase? please help!!

    Hello, I brought a 1 TB WD external hard drive and formatted it to use with both my mac and windows. At first it was working perfectly but after around 1-2 weeks it suddenly stopped. Now it doesn't show up on a mac or windows. I can see it on my disk utility (mac) but when I try to repair it it says repair failed and when I tried to erase it to start again it said  'disk erase failed with the error: POSIX reports:the operation couldn't be completed input/output error' please say in just being an idiot and it can be resolved easily. Thank you in advance for any help given :)

    only 2 possibilities, your HD is dead/ corrupt
    OR you have a very common failure called a SATA bridge card failure.
    read all about same here:
    Your dead external hard drive is likely fine! Great hope for your 'faulty' external HD
    sounds like you have  SATA card failure , read above link

  • Adobe Illustrator CS6 won't open in Mac 10.10 without Java SE 6 Runtime. Where do I get it.

    Adobe Illustrator CS6 won't open in Mac 10.10 without Java SE 6 Runtime. Where do I get it.
    I went to Jave and downloaded the latest version of Java 8 Update 31 for Mac, but it still won't open.

    dchasin,
    You may be able to get round the legacy JAVA requirement as follows:
    Create empty folders at “/System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk” and “/System/Library/Java/Support/Deploy.bundle”, to make Illustrator use Jave SE 8 as it should.

  • New version of safari won't work on mac 10.7.5, can't be removed, can't be replaced with old version

    new version of safari won't work on mac 10.7.5, can't be removed, can't be replaced with old version

    When I try to open safari a message says: You can't use this version of the application Safari with this version of Mac OS X 10.7.5. The application requires Mac OS X 10.9 or later.
    I see Recovery needs Wi Fi which is not available here and Recovery is loaded with a list of  potential disasters.
    To heck with Safari I'll just use Firefox. Apple sure screwed up here judging from the multitude of similar complaints on the internet.

  • GoDaddy won't work in Mac Mail

    Hi guys,
    mac Mail is doing my head in!!! I launched a website for my business using GoDaddy as my hosting and I'm trying to add my account to mail but nothing works. I've been on the phone to godly and they went through all possible solutions and came to the conclusion its an apple problem. They said apple mail might have a specific port that I need to use for an external client or something like that? Anyone got any help? I can;t get a hold of anyone from apple, their support is useless unless you pay for it!!

    I posted this problem a couple of days ago. I have 50 or more groups, some with several hundreds of names & these groups no longer import. I have gone to apple genius bar & they are clueless. Apparently apple opted to make maverick work for gmail but now it won't work for mac mail.

  • New computer at work and all my song are on the server-when I try to change the folder location under preferences to the server, it still won't show my songs in Itunes?? please help!

    I have a new computer at work and all my song are on the server-when I try to change the folder location under preferences to the server, it still won't show my songs in Itunes?? please help!

    Howdy carpetjim,
    When you change the folder location like that, it changes where new songs and media are stored. To actually load the library you need to do this:
    Steps to create or choose a different iTunes Library file
    If iTunes is running, quit iTunes.
    If you are using Windows, hold down the Shift key and from the Start menu and choose All Programs > iTunes > iTunes.
    If you are using the Mac, open iTunes and immediately hold down the Option key.
    You should see one of the following screens:
    Additional information
    If you do not see one of the screens above, then you did not hold the correct key at the correct time. You may want to try again. Note that if you pinned iTunes to the Start menu programs, and open it that way, it may not work.

  • I want to update to LION,on my Macbook Pro duo core, (october 2006) because Adobe CC needs at least that. I know my computer is old, but works perfect to me and I do not want to stay in Adobe CS6 since I have access to Adobe Cloud CC. Please help.

    I probably dont want to go to Mountain Lion either because I've heard that it will slow down my computer, So, Lion 10.7 will be the perfect OS X for me.
    I have ne newest release of Snow Leopard installed and works great.
    Thank you ALL for your help.

    you will be ok updating to the new software but there will be some trade off. i have 3 macbooks 2006 that are all running the latest versions.
    some of the trade off are
    1-2 less of battery life
    slow wake ups from sleep
    slower start up time about 30-40 seconds longer then what you have now
    the operating system will use high % of your processer while idealing
    these are not the things you want to hear about a new os compared to the old one but this is how it is even with a new macbook pro. but it's not the end of the world. just make sure you have at least more then 2GB of ram and have a good harddrive and you will be ok.

  • HT203164 My newly installed burner works fine from i-tunes, except the burned disk won't work in my car CD player. The old burner's disks work just fine in the car. Please help.

    My newly installed burner works fine from i-tunes, except the burned disk won't work in my car CD player. The old burner's work just fine in the car. Please help.

    Using my new G5 I have the same problem, which I did not know using my old G4 with an external LaCie burner. The CD-Changer in my car is not able to read audio-cds, also my cd-player in my home hifi-system. The only way to play these audio-cds is (strange...) to put them directly in the main tuner of my car (usually used for the navigation cd), not using the Changer.
    Maybe the problem really depends on the quality of the CD-Rs. I have used CD-Rs from Sony (it´s a brand, I think?) and will try Verbatim.

    Apple says that the Mac was supposed to be erased and taken back to the most recent version of OS X with which it shipped. You should not have any of the previous owner's apps. That violates the Terms of Use for Mac App Store apps.

    You can move your iTunes library.. Apple have explicit instructions to do it. If the library is moved to the TC and accessed over wireless, the efficiency of the whole system will drop dramatically..
    A file you download goes.. Modem---TC--Laptop--Back to TC--Store on disk. Double looping the wireless slows it dramatically..
    As far as using TC for your iTunes.. you CAN.. but SHOULD YOU?
    Store files on the TC.
    https://discussions.apple.com/message/24380694#24380694
    This is asked several times a day.. obviously people are struggling with their latest SSD being too small.
    The TC is not suitable for network file server.. but many people having no choice press it into service as such.
    It cannot be partitioned. It was and is and ever shall be a backup device for Time Machine.
    Major issues.
    1. No backup.. no way Time Machine can backup a network drive. No place to backup to.. So all your files will be at risk. And you will need to buy a third party like CCC to do backup.
    2. The TC cannot be partitioned and mixing TM backups and data is not great.
    3. The drive is slow to spin up and quick to spin down.. there is no controls.
    4. iPhoto in particular can easily corrupt its entire library with wireless networking causing a disconnection to one photo. Even if you do this;;; do not move your photo library... you have been warned!!
    5. iTunes will constantly lose connection to the library. The disk is too slow to respond.. itunes on the computer will constantly spit out errors. Even in the midst of streaming the TC can spin down the disk due to caching.
    6. Do not use any live files on the TC no matter what else you do.. if you edit files in whatever program the file must be on the local hard disk.
    7. The only suitable location for most libraries is a computer. You can plug in an external hard disk.
    Read pondini for some work arounds.

    I'm using a 2009 Macbook Pro and have installed the lastest update 10.8.1

    I've been seeing this for some time now and getting quite sick of it. It happens when I've been away at work for the day and come home to find frozen notifications.
    You can fix this temporarily by quitting Notification Centre from Activity Monitor but it keeps happening to me every week or so.
