Trying to install Adobe Photoshop elements 8 on MAC 10.6.8

Trying to install Adobe Photoshop elements 8 (that I bought a while ago and never installed) on my MacBook Pro, Intel Core 2 Duo, OS 10.6.8.
When I insert the PS Elements Disk, a PSE page came up with Read me etc which I read.  I clicked on the blue PSE folder and a window with Bootstrapper.dmg came up. I clicked on that and a window opened asking me to type in my administrator passsword to allow Setp to make changes, which I did, twice... and then nothing happened...
Is there something else I am suppose to do? OH, another mounted drive appeared in Finder with a long name... "EFBB...........". When I opened it, it had an assets folder  and two .js files (whatever they are)...
What more do I have to do?

I think I figued it out... But why installations instructions didn't come up when I inserted the disk was very annoying. And because they didn't, Adobe should post th installations instructions somewhere on their support site. Not here now, which is also annoying.

  • Trying to install Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 on a Mac?

    I purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 from the Adobe Store and was sent the file to download. I was given the choice to download Akamai Download Manager or alternate download method. Which one should I choose? I have already been provided the serial number for the program..
    Advice would be greatly appreciated..

    There seem to be fewer problems without the download manager, but if you have a very slow internet connection it may work better with it.

    As I said in your other thread, PSE 4 has not been compatible with OS X since around 10.4. It will not install in 10.8. PSE 6 is the oldest version you can use. PSE 4 is a PPC application and 10.8 requires intel software.

  • I'm trying to install adobe photoshop elements 11

    I'm trying to install on my Gateway Windows 8 but no screen appears nor can I find the disk icon.  I disabled the anti virus and I have a dvd super multi driver.  Help. 

    Hi, Are you able to browse the PSE 11 DVD on your Windows ?
    If yes, then you can browse that and you will find Install executable file with which you can initiate the installer.
    If you are unable to do so, you can download PSE 11 from here : http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=photoshop_elements&loc=us

  • Installing Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 on MacBook Air

    I'm trying to install Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 on my new MacBook Air, but have no cd drive. Is there a way to download this without a cd drive?

    Trials of almost all software are available for download from the manufacturer's website. That's one of the reasons that the MacBook Air has no DVD drive.
    Invariably the website trials are more up to date than the physical disk so you often don't have to install updates after the initial install.
    Visit the website and follow the links. Or just use Google to find it.

    The Adobe applications manager will also not install.

  • I am trying to install Adobe Photoshop to a second computer

    I am trying to install Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 to a second computer but it is telling me that it is already saved to a 2nd. This is incorrect, when i installed to the 1st computer i later had a technical failure and the computer needed to be shut down and then rebooted. I think when this happened the programme could have been lost and is now why it thinks its been used twice. Please can you advise me on what best action to take? As i need to use this programme on 2 different computers. Many thanks

    You need to contact Adobe Support either by chat or via phone when you have serial number and activation issues such as you describe.

  • Im trying to re-install Adobe photoshop elements and it says failure to install

    I would like to say that your customer Service is the absolute worst I have ever spoken to... I am having trouble re-installing my photoshop elements 4.0 on my computer. I just used it yesterday and went to re-install it today because my computer had to be restored to factory settings. I waited 10 min and the phone hung up on me. I called back and waited 30 min and then hung up because it was taking so long. Then called back, complained to the first rep, he transferred me to another rep who transferred me and I waited 52 min for a CSR to tell me that I need to go to forums.com. This is terrible..what is there job if they are just referring people to a forum. I would love to download 12.0 at some point but I do not have the funds at this time and the 4.0 will get the job done, but it will not let me download. I need this asap for my job. I am wasting valuable time from my job and kids w/ computer problems.
    Thanks
