My new laptop does not have an optical drive, so I am trying to install CS4 via the downloads provided at https://prodesigntools.com/download-adobe-cs4-and-cs3-free-trials-here.html. When I initiate the install, it defaults to installing in my user folder instead of the Program Files/Program Files (x86) folders. However, when I change the path to Program Files or Program Files (x86), I get a permissions error even though I'm using an admin profile.
Every time I've installed CS4 from the disks, it defaulted to Progam files.
This is a brand new laptop and CS4 is the 3rd app I've attempted to install. The two before it were Chrome and Origin (game client), both defaulted to x86 & x64 and x86, respectively.
Since it's Windows that decides where best to install something, other than changing the owner of my C drive to me, any ideas how I can get this installation to default to x86 or x64 ?
Thanx so much for that. I've never had to install it this way, so I didn't know what to expect. So it never occurred to me that it could be something that simple. You just made my holiday. I hope you enjoy yours or at least the day if you don't observe.
