I am not able to install any of the Adobe CS5 software. The installer hangs when calculating time.

Here's what I found in the installer log:

[       0] Mon Oct  3 21:22:13 2011  INFO
::START TIMER:: [Total Timer]
CHECK: Single instance running
CHECK : Credentials
Load Deployment File

Every time it tries to perform Bootstrapping, it hangs right there.

I've also tried to download a trial version of Photoshop only and install it through Adobe Download Assistant, but still the same results (see the last entry in the log).

I'd really appreciate it if someone could help.

You don't have a case sensitive filesystem by any chance? –  Digitalchild Oct 4 '11 at 0:18
    
not sure, don't think I changed anything since I got my Mac 2 days ago, but I managed to install the trial version of Photoshop. Will try again with the whole CS5 collection, hope it works. I don't know why it behaved strange. –  Cristian Oct 5 '11 at 9:02
    
Yeah that is strange, CS5 won't install if its a case sensitive file system. But if its a new machine, that won't be the case. If you managed to get the trial installed the full version should work now. –  Digitalchild Oct 6 '11 at 0:43
    
Yes the full version worked as well. Thanks for your comments! –  Cristian Oct 9 '11 at 19:04
