Adobe Updater tip

I run Leopard with my homedir on a FileVault'ed homedir. The infernal Adobe Updater gets utterly confused by this. My assumption is that it gets really confused when you don't have your home dir and your apps on the same file system.

If you have problems updating Photoshop CS3 and other Adobe Products because of this you can just do the following:
  • Add another account
  • Give it admin rights
  • Make sure it does NOT have a FileVault homedir
  • Start the Adobe Update app (you can do this from the Help meny in Photoshop if you like)
  • Perform the updates
  • Optionally log out and then remove the spare admin account
I sent a bug report to Adobe, so hopefully they'll fix it.
