I had to buy a new Mac. Trying to install AI CS6 on the new Mac and I get a pop up that says
Install needs to be updated. The developer of this app needs to update it to work with this version of macOS. Contact the developer for more information.
When I click the learn more button, The main subject says 32-bit compatibility with macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 and later
About the transition to 64-bit technology and how it affects 32-bit apps
If your new Mac is an M1 processor, then forget it.
If you are on a Mac OS greater than 10.14, [edited typo] then forget it.
If you want stability, either subscribe to the Creative Cloud--or by an old Mac and don't update the OS.
Officially CS6 runs on 10.6.8 to 10.9
I have it on 10.10 and on 10.14 (but it had already been installed when I updated those systems).
Sorry--had a typo. Meant 10.14. That was the last 32-bit version.
