The software is available for Windows and Mac. Please specify which version you want when requesting the software. There will be a nominal cost associated with installing this software — $15 per license (see below).
Because of the high volume of requests for Adobe discs, we have made the software available on the University's APPS server for installation. This options requires the installation to take place on the University campus.
Following are the basic instructions. When installing, you will need the license code for the software, which you can obtain from the IT Service Desk for $15 per installation (see "Cost," below). If you don’t have the code, you can install the software as a trial and enter the code later.

Type a name for the shortcut (we suggest “Apps Server”) and click “Finish.” Double click the shortcut, double click “DistApps,” double click “Adobe Creative Suite,” double click "Adobe CS5.5 Design Premium-Windows," and double click "Set-up.exe” to begin installation.
