  2. I have had trouble with Mac’s latest High Sierra operating system not allowing me to re-install my Adobe Creative Suite 6, as well as my HP Officejet 8600 – and wondering if anyone can help me, because three trips to the Apple store and also many phone calls to their support have not.

    I just do not know what to do and do not at this stage in my life want to pay monthly fees for what I already own… HELP

    • Hello William, all Adobe Creative Suite software is over six years old and end-of-life. Meaning, it is no longer supported and there are no guarantees about running on modern hardware or operating systems. Most computer software has a limited lifetime of viability before this happens.

      Typically, the main issue is about the core operating system support for older runtimes and dated API’s in programs that were written in 2011-2012. To be clear, this has far more to do with Apple dropping that support as they move forward, than it does Adobe. Apple is notorious for doing this. Microsoft is a bit better at managing old interfaces and compatibility in later o/s releases.

      As with all static perpetual versions, they eventually grow obsolete and won’t run if you can’t preserve the original platform that they were built for. Upgrades and maintenance are an ongoing necessity in order to maintain virtually anything in life, especially something that moves as technologically fast as computer software.

      One of the important advantages of Creative Cloud is that all ongoing upgrades, compatibility updates and product additions are always included, including a steady stream of new features and performance improvements at no additional cost. So the tools will never become obsolete or stop working on a new operating system, and in fact they are written to take advantage of the speed and optimizations that the newer platforms bring.

      You may already be aware of some of these details, but just wanted to mention them as background regarding the situation, or if you’re having trouble running old programs on new systems… Best of luck!
