I while back I purchased the Adobe CS4 Master Collection with the CDs. I had to update my MacOS to Sierra 10.12.6 recently and when I did, my entire Creative Suite was wiped out. I tried reinstalling Illustrator and Photoshop, but keep getting an error mesage reading (Illustrator)  "The localized resource files for this application could not be loaded. Please reinstall or repair application and try again." Ive tried reinstaling and restarting the computer but no luck. I need some Tech help.  I called Adobe Customer Service and mentioned and directed me herr to this platform.

Can definitely still activate CS4 for a fresh, new install. I did it myself successfully a couple of months ago.

 

Cannot deactivate though.

jlabreau@aol.com,

I have heard a rumor that legacy CS4 can be fresh installed on some older systems.  But be sure to use the terminal workaround described below for Sierra, High Sierra & Mojave.

That said, CS4 is outdated, unsupported software.  It might work or not.  Use at your own risk.

 

=============
Beware of fake Adobe reps who may contact you privately offering to sell you software or take control of your computer. It's a scam, run away! Real Adobe employees will never reach out via Outlook, Yahoo, Gmail or Skype.
