2 - Based on past messages (I am on Windows, so this is not from direct experience) When you are installing or updating on a Mac, that is your Mac asking you to prove that you have permission by asking for your COMPUTER password, not your Adobe password
CS5 and CS6 are on life support. But they can still be activated providing you have the following: 1. your original media (disks or downloads) you received at purchase and a way to read them, 2. a legitimate serial number for that version, language and platform (Win/Mac) and if it was an upgrade, a qualifying serial number from an older product, 3. an older operating system that can support legacy 32-bit apps.
Legacy Creative Suite is discontinued & unsupported. Use at your own risk.
