Hi, I am trying to instal ps (CS4) on my new MacBook Pro and I keep getting a system requirements error saying this software cannot be installed bc the file system of the setup volume is not supported. What does this mean? And how do I fix this?
You also may never be able to install CS4 on a Mac running Sierra
CS6 and earlier programs have not been tested and will not be updated for Mac El Capitan/Sierra
-which means that you try to use CS6 and earlier at YOUR risk of having problems due to Apple updates
-Apple did not maintain backward compatibility with old programs in El Capitan or Sierra
--Adobe has a workaround to Apple's problem of not maintaining backward compatibility
--READ HERE https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2301916 for an Adobe solution to installing old programs
It could also be a change in Sierra's settings blocking the CS4 installer and generating a misleading error message. You may need to re-enable the Anywhere option in Sierra's Security & Privacy settings.
Also Installing Creative Suite on macOS 10.12 (Sierra) has helped many people.
I am trying to install CS4 on a MacbookPro (2018) macos High Sierra but it is telling me the software cannot be installed because the file system of the setup volume is not supported - please can you help. i am not very technical !!
If you are not very technical, this may be beyond your skills to fix safely - the risk of losing everything would be very high. CS4 all the way to the current CC2021 will not install on a case sensitive filesystem.
