I have run CS4 photoshop on my Macbook Pro - but now I can't run the trial of either photoshop or dreamweaver - the error says the architecture (of my machine) won't support the program. I'm wondering if anyone knows a work around. I called apple - they say that Adobe just hasn't gotten the trials to work with the newer operating systems of OSX. If that is true it seems like bad business since photoshop is their flagship graphics program and Mac are the graphics computers.

Hi

Thanks for your help.

I have the brand new version of Macbook Pro with osx 10.5.7 2.66 GHz

Intel Core 2 Duo,

4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3

I think it is that the trial isn't for the most recent OSX.

Sounds like your correct. As suggested by JJ with proper link, re-ask your question that Forum.

CS4 runs fine in the latest version of Leopard, 10.5.7.

It sounds more like that the hard drive was formatted as case sensitive, which won't work, or just another MacBoook issue.

I never understood why apple added those additional  formats such as case sensitive with the start of OSX.4.x.   In X.3.x  they didn't have case sensitive formatting.

Yes it did.

You really need to get your facts straight before you go posting.

OSX 10.2 also supported Case Sensitive.

Not that I was aware of?

And I've formatted several Hard drives.  Not every day but I have done so. X.4 was the first I noticed the additional formatting types.

there has always been for matting for Unix formatting anf for file system used on windows.  These extra version for Case sensitive I didn't see until OX.4.

Ask in the Photoshop Mac forum.
