I am running Mac OS 10.10.5 Yosemite, and need an older version of Premier Pro.  I downloaded CS 6 onto an external hard-drive last year, but I forgot to bring it with me on my trip.  Now, I'm traveling and I've spent hours online trying to connect via chat with Adobe with no success.  Before spending $$$ on long distance internaitonal calls (last time I called it took over an hour), I thought I'd check here!  Where can I download an older version of Premier Pro CS6 - and how do I direct it to a particular drive?

Hello, I'm sorry to have to report that there is no way to download and activate any other versions than those available with the CC application.

Can you explain the logic behind this regretful decision?

The logic is two-fold:

 

  1. Much of the functionality of those earlier versions of Premiere Pro were provided by third-party companies. Adobe merely had a limited-time license to use the given versions of such plugins in its products (and were embedded into the program itself and were neither upgradeable nor updatable), and when those licenses expired, Adobe became liable for any litigation that would also drag consumers (Creative Cloud subscribers) into such litigation. (This applies only to subscription software, including any normally perpetually-licensed versions downloaded and installed solely through a subscription service.) In other words, if Adobe itself were to have been sued by those third-party companies for intellectual property infringement, you would have been part of the defendants' group, which meant that you would have been liable for infringement as well. As a result, starting in late 2017, Adobe pulled most of its products ithat incorporated an AC3 audio encoder off of distribution, and expanded in May 2019 to include almost all older versions. As such, not only might you have had to pay many thousands of dollars to those third-party plugin companies, but that the Creative Cloud subscription rates for monthly subscribers would not have been $56 per month, but would have instead been hundreds or even thousands of dollars per month. That's what we don't want.
  2. Because of the new policy beginning in May 2019, Adobe is now restricting availability to the two newest major versions of any of its Creative Cloud software.

 

So there you have it.

Like the previous reply stated, Adobe is now restricting CC download availability to the two most recent major versions of all CC apps. You cannot download any version of CS6 anywhere any more unless you can prove that you had already purchased a full-cost license prior to the official end of its availability back in early 2017.

So if I download the current "Catalina" software from Apple, will I be able to download the most recent version of Premier Pro?  The reason I never updated the software is becuase this is a 2015 MacbookPro and I didn't wanna mess up anything.  I pretty much use it for web browsing and Microsoft Office. 

 

By the way, someone sent me a private message, but I think it's a scam!  His name is Matthew Cove and he said to contact: Adobe24x7@gmail.com.  Obviously it is NOT an Adobe email and I'm not going to download anything from him.  Grrr!  

 

Thanks, everyone!  🙂

>name is Matthew Cove

Is that the scammer's Adobe ID, or the name inside the email?

If you go back to the private message and find the forum identity and post it here he will be banned

Such as YOU are https://community.adobe.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/17294935

Excuse me? I pay for the Adobe Creative Cloud each month and I barely even use it! I just asked a simple question today because I am traveling abroad and need help! 

I wanted to let the group know that I received a very suspicious message from someone with username Matthew_Cove that did not seem legitimate. I'm not sure why I would be banned when I'm simply asking a question!

You need to go back and read my reply again

 

I said "he will be banned" and I gave your ID as an example of what is needed to ban someone

 

I never said that YOU would be banned

Ok - I gather there was a misunderstanding!  Appreciate everyone's help!

 

And in the meantime, yet ANOTHER scammer contacted me via private message, instructing me to send an email to the Adobe team using gmail:  https://community.adobe.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/17295157

https://community.adobe.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/17293591 

 

Anyway, for now I will try to use Adobe Rush.  It seems easy enough and given that I am traveling, I don't necessarily want to update a software system to Catalina and make everything crash.  Especially since I am not clear if that would solve the issue.  If I download Catalina, can I start working in Premier Pro again?  (for future reference)

Problem there is that only the very first 6.0.0 version is available, and any updates are now no longer available any more unless you call Adobe's support by telephone.

Sorry, there is no such thing. Creative Suite 6 is nearly 10 years old now, end-of-life, completely unsupported, and Adobe has not sold or offered it for over five years.

 

Any "free version" you might see elsewhere (from non-Adobe sources) is definitely counterfeit and likely unsafe.

 

In any event, due to changes that Apple made removing all support for 32-bit applications, CS6 also will not install on modern operating systems like macOS Catalina, Big Sur, Monterey, or newer. It may possibly run on Windows, although plenty of users have still reported issues over the years.
