New imac & adobe cs5 installation

i just bought my first imac and adobe cs5 student along with it. installed it just fine and everything but when i went to the applications folder on the dock, the install put all the cs5 folders in the applications folder. is that we're they're supposed to go or should i made the installation place the folders somewhere else? sorry i dont know much about the OS yet.
what i eventually want to do is place the icons for photoshop and illustrator on the dock too. i think all i do for that is drag them there after, and if, i can move the app folders.
thanks in advance!

It installed correctly. Also I'd STRONGLY recommend you study these sites because you are new to OS X. Don't just gloss over them study them!

  • Having extreme problems using the new iMac, adobe CS5 (in particular InDesign) and OSX 10.8.2 (and now also 10.8.3) Mountain Lion

    Is anyone else experiencing the same thing? My computer is 2 months old and has hardly any files stored on it. Also, my
    Graphics  NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 512 MB and my memory is 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3.
    I am only running one thing on the computer as we speak - making a small pattern in InDesign - yet is has been frozen for over 20 mins, and that's not the first time this has happened.
    I updated to the latest Mountain lion this morning (10.8.3) and its exactly the same.
    I dont understand why this is happening, but on the older iMac i could run several windows of the entire creative suite without a problem - i was also using Snow Leopard.
    please help!

    Do you have any Security/Anti-Virus software installed? Mackeeper? Any Third Party programs you have installed recently?

  • Purchased a new iMac - installed CS5 CD - message - Installer failed to initialise....

    Purchased a new iMac - installed CS5 CD - message - Installer failed to initialise....

    You need to copy all the installer disc to the desktop, Folder by folder. for example, Copy the contents of Payloads folder on Disc 2 to payloads folder of Disc 1, Extension to extensions, etc
    Then you will see the setup.app file on the Folder that you created on the desktop.
    Run that and check.

  • I've Just migrated my mac to a new iMac and CS5 is dead

    I've Just migrated my mac to a new iMac and CS5 is dead, I can't uninstall it or do anything with it. When I try to load an application it just crashes (I'm guessing because it needs registering on my new machine) and I can't uninstall it.
    I've been using CS5 for the past three years, and contemplating getting Creative Cloud. The problem is, it looks like I didn't every properly register CS5 with my Adobe ID, the software package was a download from a thrid party seller, and the email account the sent all the registration info to is no longer in use. . .
    When I try to use Application Manager to uninstall it just tells me I need application manager and gives me a link to Adobe's website to download it. I download it, install it, try again, same result, tells me I need to download it. . .
    Frustrating.
    Any help greatly appreciated, I'm currently completely stuck!

    Reinstall properly.

  • How can I install CS5 on my new iMac.

    After replacing a crashed computer Irestored my information from time machine onto my new iMac.  CS5 apps will not launch.  An error message indicates a licensing problem.  I am unable to contact by phone anyone at adobe to help. 

    You need to install the software if that is not what you did.    If you do not have the installation disks, you can download the trial version of the software thru the page linked below and then use your current serial number to activate it.
    Be sure to follow the steps outlined in the Note: Very Important Instructions section on the download pages at this site or else the download will not work properly.

  • Installer hung -- M$ Office 2011 on my new iMac.

    Hello, Totally new Mac newbie here.  I am trying to install M$ Office 2011 on my new iMac.
    The installer process stopped on the "installation" step and said I needed to quit Safari and Firefox before it could continue.  I did quit those apps (at least I think I did.) But now the installer reamins in a loop not recognizing that they are gone ... telling me I need to quit them.
    The installer also will not let me quit out of it.   So there it sits in a loop.  Help?!?!?

    There must be a more "normal" Mac way to shut down an application than using the Activity Monitor.  Please tell how a normal Mac user would do this.
    It's more likely an issue with the MS installer. I suspect something about it was preventing the other apps from quitting in a timely fashion. I think I'm a "normal Mac User" as I've used Macs exclusively since ~1989 and command q always works to quit a program.
    I also used a lot of MS Office versions and continue to do so. However, I've learned their installers can be rather demanding of resources, so I'm always careful to close all open apps before running an MS installer.
    You can probably find additional suggestions in Microsoft's Office for Mac community forums as well:

  • Cannot install new software - adobe acrobat 9 pro

    Hi
    I have just upgraded my system software to Snow Leopard Mac OS X 10.6.3 so that I could install new software - Adobe CS5 Design Premium.
    System upgarde went perfectly, installation of all other software in CS5 went perfectly and now all I need to do is install Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro. I drag the folder from the CD into my Applications folder but it does not complete the process of copying it and comes up with the folowing error message:
    'The Finder can't complete the operation because some data in Adobe Acrobat Pro can't be read or written  (Error code -36)'
    Prior to this installation attempt I removed Acrobat 8 as instructions that came with 9 indicated that I needed to do this. The only other info that may be relevant is that this software is an upgrade pack from Adobe CS2, though I did not have CS2 on this particluar computer. It was on a different computer.
    regards
    Lorna

    To download Acrobat 9 Professional :
    Go to the web page : http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=acrobat_pro&loc=en
    Login with your Adobe ID and Password. Now instead of clicking on the download button copy and paste the following link on the address bar and hit enter :http://trials2.adobe.com/Applications/Acrobat/APRO/9/trials/AcroPro90_ efg.exe
    This is the direct download link for Acrobat 9.
    Note : This link would only work from the downloads page of Acrobat 10.

  • Can't install photoshop cs6 on brand new iMac - "Media db error: 18"

    At my company we recently hired a web designer – given his insistence on using the Adobe software, we decided to give Photoshop a try.
    We downloaded a trial version and tried to install it on the brand new iMac (no previous installations of adobe stuff) we just bought for the new desigher, but... it's not even installing!
    The installation process halts at around 2% and an error screen appears which gives generic instructions ("restart your computer and retry") and points to a log file where one can read "Media db error: 18".
    Of course we tried restarting the computer, cleaning up ~/Library, re-downloading the installer... no good – we then downloaded and run an adobe cleanup utility... still no good.
    Some people on the internet report they have the same problem... we found several questions on the matter, but no answer (besides "restart your computer" and other generic stuff that we tried and does not work).
    We then called Adobe support (Italian support) and they told us they don't give support for trial versions, like we should sight unseen buy a (pricey!) software we can't even install! .
    Can anyone here help?

    Thanks for your help!
    No, no beta or previous installations of any Adobe products – we are trying to install to a brand new iMac (just bought last week from the store): it has the latest version of everything (Os: Lion 10.7.4)
    Is there any debug switch I can turn on on the installer to get further information on what's going wrong? ("media db error" is a somewhat laconic error message)

  • Examples of Output Files in Adobe CS5.5 - Todd Kopriva Disk Optimization Question

    Hello Todd Kopriva
    Your video on Disk Drive Optimization is excellent. I went out to purchase (2) Raid-5 (8 TB) units. I had a question regarding Read Files going to one Disk and Output Files going to another. Can you give some examples of what type of Output Files you are talking about. Iam fairly new to Adobe CS5.5 Production Premium. I am presently usiung Premiere and Encore as well as After Effects. I just want to make sure as to what files will be going tomy Output Raid Drive.  I am thinking that one of them may the file created when you export out of Premiere wo Media Encoder.
    Thanks for the help and keep up the Tutorials. 
    Thanks,

  • Removing Office Test Drive from new iMac

    I purchased Office 2004 with my new iMac. The installation instructions inform me to remove "...any Preview or Test Drive versions....". My attempts to uninstall the Test Drive have failed. The "boxes" I am instructed to check are not there. I have searched for hours on this and the MicroSoft site to find an answer to this dilemma. Did I miss the solution in my search?

    Just drag the "Office 2004 for Mac Test Drive" folder
    to the trash - empty it - and install the new
    software.
    Just to add a bit here: this should work if you've never actually run the Test Drive version. Until you've actually run the Test Drive, nothing has been installed for the uninstaller to find.
    Once you've run the Test Drive version at least once, it'll install all of its libraries and fonts and stuff all over the hard drive, just like any other program. Then you'll need the uninstaller.

  • How to download Adobe Premiere pro CS5 for windows to my new imac 27 inch

    How to download Adobe Premiere pro CS5 for windows to my new imac 27 inch

    IMHO Windows would be the place to start.
    Why do you want to load CS5 for Windows?
    Adobe does produce a version of CS5 that runs on OS X so that it would not be necessary for you to have to screw around with Windows. Personally that would be the way to go and avoid the hassles of Windows.

  • HT4796 After migrating all of my adobe software (Cs4, cs5, etc.) to my new imac, the software won't open due to many errors. Any help on this?

    After migrating all of my adobe software (Cs4, cs5, etc.) to my new imac, the software won't open due to many errors. Any help on this?

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    Adobe software is conflictive when you use Migration Assistant because their applications don't work properly after migration. If you keep the DVDs or the installers of your software, use them to reinstall all your Adobe applications and they should start working correctly
