CS3 Adobe Updater Unexpectedly Quit

Hi, I have just upgraded a G5 Intel Mac Pro from Tiger to Leopard and ran all the OS updates, everything seems okay except that the Adobe Updater for CS3 quits unexpectedly every time it is run I have tried reinstalling CS3 but still have the problem. I couldn't see any other questions relating to this so I hope I'm not alone?

Thanks.

Please try downloading and manually updating CS3 from here http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/collection.jsp?collID=1&platform=Macintosh

Hi,

The problem with this is I don't know what updates I need because the updater quits before telling me what updates are needed? Also I have another 40 MAC's to upgrade to Leopard and would rather not have to manually install CS3 updates.

Cheers.

I have now reinstalled Updater 5.1.1 and deleted the Adobe Updater Data folder but still no joy?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

OK does the crash reporter appear?  Can you post the text from the crash reporter?

have tried running the update as a different user who also has admin privileges?

Also try deleting the the folder /Users/yourUsername/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Updater and restarting the updater.

Hi, It looked promising but crashed after a minute or two. But by deleting the the updater folder I can now see what updates are needed when re-running the updater.

OK go into /users/yourUsername/Library/Preferences and delete everything that is labeled Adobe.

It seemed to run a bit longer but crashed eventually.

I suggest that you go back to the Adobe site I originally provided and manually download all of the updates or Delete and reinstall Adobe.

I manually downloaded the updates to the major programs in CS3. After that the updater managed to get through the rest of the smaller updates. But who knows if it will get through the next major update?

I found this on someone's blog. This terminal command will run the updater for the updater. Why it doesn't do this on its own, I don't know.


sudo /Applications/Utilities/Adobe\ Utilities.localized/Adobe\ Updater5/Adobe\ Updater.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe\ Updater
