Hi Xinz21157015,

As you have mentioned that you are unable to install Adobe CS6 Suite on Mac OS Sierra and you have tried all the steps provided in the following help document as well 'Installing Creative Suite on macOS 10.12 (Sierra)' but it still didn't work, am I correct?

I would request you share the details of exactly what happens when you try to install CS6 on your machine, do you get any error messages with error codes in it, if yes then please share them with us.

Meanwhile I would recommend you to create a new user account on your machine and try installing the product there using the steps listed in the above help document and see if that works, see:Install or run Adobe applications in new user account | Mac OS X .

If it works in the new user account then this issue could be related to incomplete permissions on your main user account or some other software like antivirus or internet security program interfering with the installation.

Awaiting your response.

Hi Bani Verma,

Thank you for your reply!

1. I tried your method from Adobe help to install Illustrator CS6 on Mac OS 10.12.6

\

2.but it didn’t solve the problem

3.Then I had a try to use Adobe Creative Cloud CleanerTool to clean the mac,but it didn’t work

What's strange to me is that Photoshop CS6 and InDesign CS6 can be used normally, but Illustrator CS6 can not install

Something that worked for me is running the install exec. (Which is located in Adobe Photoshop CS6/Install.app/Contents/MacOS/Install)

I only did this after trying the method on this thread, so I'm not sure if it works alone.

Right click CS6 installer, Show Package Contents

Go to Contents/MacOS/install

Open "Terminal' > drag 'install' icon into terminal window.

EDIT: The method still works in Mojave and without any other steps. Also, the file can be opened by double clicking!
