I have a licensed Adobe CS6 master collection. I am trying to install on my new computer with WIN 10.
My install files are on a USB drive which worked on the old computer. (When I click set-up.exe) I get the "installer failed to initialize" message.
I went to my account and found the download but it shows a promo for CC (which I do not want) and states that the CC includes a one year subscription to CS6 which expires within one year of download. Is this some gimmick for Adobe to try and force us into a subscription service?
I'm not sure what you are seeing, but Adobe stopped offering CS6 with a Cloud subscription over a year ago
Can you copy your files from the USB drive to a folder on your hard drive?
