Adobe CS5 on a Mac with case-sensitive drive?

Nope.

All you’ll see is the message below; which should be worded entirely differently since you can’t choose a “different drive location”. Basically, it’s saying if you want to use it, reformat your Mac. Also, as far as I can see, there isn’t a workaround. Fucking Adobe. Oh, and Viva la HTML5.

    Agreed man, I just formatted my mac so that I could EXPLICITLY use case sensitive filesystem features, and these pricks expect me to just deal with it?

    Seriously, Fuck Adobe. I use to hate them, then Flex came out and I started not hating them as much. Now this I find out the hard way. Well fuck them. I’m glad I didn’t actually pay for this fucking garbage.

    There is accauly a workaround. Fooling the installer into thinking it is on the startup disk when it is in a compatible drive… I am looking into that now. Mail me if you want details…

    Sito messaggio eccezionale. Ho intenzione di bookmark e controllare molto più spesso. Mi piace molto il modello di sito web

    I like my case-sensitive file system. I don’t wanna change it because of a bunch of lazy programmers.

    There is a way if you still need it.

    https://bitbucket.org/lokkju/adobe_case_sensitive_volumes
    and
    http://arcticmac.home.comcast.net/~arcticmac/tutorials/cs5instructions.html.

    Ignore the steps 5-7, 9, 10 and 12 from the first link.
    Then, run the fix_case.pl script from the second link as mentioned. Now I have Photoshop CS5 running in my case sensitive partitions.

    Best regards,
