Here are the requirements for CS5, including MacOS v10.5.7 or v10.6

Apple closed us out of older applications (again). CS5 will not run on macOS14 Sonoma

UPloading is to copy a file FROM your computer TO an Internet site

DOWNloading is to copy a file FROM an Internet site TO your computer

INSTALLING is running the install/setup program to put a program ON your computer

 

CS5 will not install on a new Mac... which is Apple's decision to not allow old programs to run

I may have lost count, but I think this is the fifth time Apple has upgraded their OS and locked us out of earlier applications. Unfair? I won't disagree, but over the years I expect it now. Since being on the Adobe forums, I've seen Windows users can install older versions on newer a newer OS. It's only Apple that locks us out.

 

Your choices are:

  • keep your older computer and keep running CS5 on your old OS until something unexpectedly breaks
  • install software such as parallels and install both an older macOS and CS5
    (I haven't tried this; I've only used Parallels with Windows on my Mac)
  • Subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud. Adobe apps have been subscription only since 2013. Subscription is all that is being sold currently, as perpetual licenses a now a thing of the past.

 

Creative Cloud (annual plan) is on sale for 40% off through March 3, then reverts to regular pricing after the first year:

If you only want Photoshop, there is a deeply discounted annual Photography plan, payable monthly at $9.99 with 20GB storage space

Filter to Individual (top nav) and Photo (side nav)

Newer versions of macOS cannot run most older applications for multiple reasons. CS5 was released in 2010 and is now obsolete. You can buy a subscription license to Creative Cloud which will work on your new computer.

unless your new laptop has a very old os, you can't install cs5 (or any 32 bit software) on a 64 bit only os.

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post (like this one has already been moved) if it helps you get responses.
