Mac OS High Sierra and Photoshop CS6

Whenever I try to install the Photoshop CS6 application on my MacOSX High Sierra10.13.6 the install application throws the error message:

"Installer failed to initialize. This could be due to missing file. Please download Adobe Support Advisor to detect the problem".

And if I click on the Adobe Support Advisor link I am not pointed in the right direction.

Isn't Photoshop CS6 supported on High Sierra?

Owners of old programs simply have problems with new Mac operating systems... none of which is Adobe's fault... Adobe did not change your old program to make it stop working... Apple changed their operating system and THAT is why your old programs won't work, not because of anything Adobe did... Also... every time Apple issues an update, there is the risk that an old program that HAS been working will STOP working... bottom line, old programs require a matching old operating system
