Install your software 



1. Before you install, close all applications currently running on your system—including other Adobe applications, Microsoft Office applications, and browser windows.  It is also recommended to temporarily turn off virus protection during the installation process. 

2. You must have administrative privileges or be able to validate as an administrator. 

3. Do one of the following:  

Windows: 

  • Insert the DVD in your drive, and follow the on-screen instructions. If the installer does not launch automatically, navigate to the Adobe InCopy CS5.5 folder found at the root level on the DVD and double-click Set-up.exe to start the installation process.
  • If you downloaded the software from the web, the installer will self-extract and launch automatically.  If the installer does not launch automatically, open the folder, navigate to the Adobe CS5.5 folder, double-click Set-up.exe, and then follow the on-screen instructions.

Mac: 

  • Insert the DVD in your drive, navigate to the Adobe InCopy CS5.5 folder found at the root level on your disk, double-click Install.app, and then follow the on-screen instructions.   
  • If you downloaded the software from the web, open the folder, navigate to the application folder, double-click Install.app, and then follow the on-screen instructions.

4. If you are installing as an upgrade, the installer will check your system to find the valid upgrade product.  If it cannot find it, it will ask you to input the serial number of the product being upgraded.  You can also install the software in trial, then input your new and previous serial numbers in the serialization screen shown during launch.  

5. For additional installation help, go to www.adobe.com/go/cs5install/.

For more detailed information about troubleshooting your installation, go to http://www.adobe.com/support/loganalyzer/.

Note: In order to install additional components or reinstall your software after your original installation, you will need access to the original installer (CD, DVD or the download from the web).  Repair is not an available option. 

Uninstall your software

  1. Before you uninstall, close all applications currently running on your system—including other Adobe applications, Microsoft Office applications, and browser windows. 
  2. Do one of the following: 
    • In Windows XP, open the Windows Control Panel and double-click Add or Remove Programs. Select the product that you want to uninstall, click Change/Remove, and then follow the on-screen instructions. 
    • In Windows Vista and Windows 7, open the Windows Control Panel and double-click Programs and Features. Select the product that you want to uninstall, click Uninstall/Change, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
    • IMPORTANT: Creative Suite apps on Mac OS have uninstall functionality. DO NOT drag applications to the trash to uninstall them. To safely uninstall on Mac OS X, double-click the product installer in Applications/Utilities/Adobe Installers or double-click on the Uninstall alias located in the Application folder.  Select Remove Components, then Authenticate as an Administrator and follow the on-screen instructions.

       

Note: If you want to install the product on a different computer, you must first deactivate the software on your computer. To deactivate, choose Help > Deactivate. 

Trial software 

Creative Suite 5.5 trials are "try and buy," meaning you can evaluate individual products or editions of Creative Suite 5.5 and then convert the installed trial to a full version by purchasing the product and entering the serial number at any time during or after the trial period.

To convert your trial, enter the serial number from your purchase into the product screen that counts down the remaining days in the trial. You can enter a serial number to convert the trial at any time during the trial period or after the trial ends.

 Font installation



All font related documentation is online. Visit http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/landing/creativesuite/creativesuite5.html to find our OpenType User Guide, OpenType ReadMe, links to font specific readmes, listings of fonts installed by the different CS5.5 products, and listings of fonts included on DVD for each of the CS5.5 products.

The InCopy CS5.5 installer installs fonts into a default system font directory. If the installer finds older versions of these fonts in the default system font directory, it will uninstall the older versions, and save them to a new directory.  The default system font directory is:

    Apple Macintosh:  <System Disk>/Library/Fonts

    Windows: <System Disk>:\Windows\Fonts

The older fonts will be saved in the new directory:

    Apple Macintosh:  <System Disk>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/SavedFonts/current

    Windows: <System Disk>:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\SavedFonts\current

This new directory will also contain a file named "Read Me.html" which lists the saved fonts, and the version numbers of the new and old font files.

You can re-install the older fonts by deleting the new font files from the default system font directory, and moving the old files back into that directory.

There are additional fonts on the installation disc. For information on installing these fonts, see http://www.adobe.com/go/learn_fontinstall_en
