I spent some time why but I just gave up. Here is my workaround and I hope it will help others. The workaround is to download the offline installer from this page http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html. Download the "DMG Installer (for System Administrators)" and install. After installing restart Safari for example and verify from ...

Dreamweaver CC came in two major versions: the initial CC release (v13) and the CC 2014 release (v14). From the file names, you can infer which is which. As for a "full installer", there is no such animal now. You install CC apps individually through the Creative Cloud Manager which downloads and installs the selected app(s).

I'd start with the actual uninstaller rather than the cleaner. http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/uninstall-creative-suite-cs5-cs5.html Adobe does do deep integration, and I've been known to just walk away from machines with too much adobe on them. If you feel the uninstaller isn't getting things clean enough, you can take it a step further as ...

For a Photoshop "equivalent", there is already Photoshop Element (80$) that is cheaper but has much less functionalities. Of course there is also Gimp (Free), but IMHO it's horrible to use on OSX and not available on the Mac App Store. If you're looking for a simple and quite powerful software for your money, there is Pixelmator (16$) or Acorn (currently ...

From this Adobe help page: Adobe and Apple have worked closely together to test Adobe® Creative Cloud applications and Adobe Creative Suite 6 applications for reliability, performance and user experience when installed on Intel® based systems running Mac OS X Mavericks.

This sort of file can also be manually deleted from the LaunchAgents or LaunchDaemons folders in the /Library Folder - with Administrator privileges. This is where the intrusive apps like Adobe often install things--and sometimes apps that are really trustworthy. It's not a bad idea to look through these folders now and then, to see what might have been ...

Adobe Dreamweaver (for Mac) — $399 As Andrew Larsson said, there is Mac version for latest Adobe Dreamweaver (url is the same as for Windows version). If it's a tool that you like and already own, but it's not supported by Mac, then you may try to make it work under OSX using Parallels or wine. Some people made different Dreamweaver versions to work on wine ...

For an Illustrator "equivalent", there is Inskape, (Open Source, Free, Not on the MacAppStore) On the MacApp Store you have iDraw (25$) or Sketch (50$)

iMovie is the obvious choice. It's very easy to use and fairly reasonable in price. You might have it already if you have a newish mac or else it's $15 I think. http://www.apple.com/ilife/imovie/

ePub is a digital publishing format, but it's not as straightforward as you might hope, in that not all ePub files are the same. There are 3 main types of ePub in the wild today: Straight ePub, any ePub reader should be able to open these ePub with Digital Rights Management protection: Adobe Digital Editions Apple iBooks from the iBooks store The ...

The single most important thing to remember is the point mentioned by stuffe about the iBookstore. Do not buy books there if you want to read them on your Mac or PC. They can only be read on an iOS device, and some (those in .ibooks format) can only be read on an iPad. No app exists (not ADE or Calibre or any browser add-on) which will let you read a ...

have you tried to find out if you had technical support services for those Adobe softwares? if yes then you can ask them for the version and serial numbers. If you are a company and you have volume licensing the information you are looking for is registered in the Adobe services. Hope this helps.

For a Premiere Pro "Equivalent", you have Premiere Element (80$). For a real equivalent, there is still Apple's Final Cut Pro X (300$) or Avid Media Composer (1000$, Not on MAS)

vim or MacVim Vi is already installed on your machine, and you can get to it by using the Terminal (in /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app) and typing vim. MacVim gives you a few extra features: MacVim supports multiple windows with tabbed editing and a host of other features such as: bindings to standard OS X keyboard shortcuts (⌘Z, ⌘V, ⌘A, ⌘G, etc.) ...

As already noted, this question is a bit vague. So I don't know if you want a WYSIWYG editor or not. So, I'll mention Panic's Coda. It's a great code editor that supports syntax highlighting and (and my personal favorite) auto fill. It will automatically fill in as you type: The other thing is that it has an FTP client built-right into it. This is a ...

According to Adobe's support pages, more development is needed to support all the features of 10.7 like "Autosave, Restore, Versioning, Full Screen Mode, and more multi-touch gestures." I think Mission Control is part of this.

You could follow the instructions on this page at Adobe and uninstall the CS5 packages you don't need. If you want to get rid of even more useless space, you could try Monolingual, which removes unneeded language resources.

I solved it. I moved the /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Slcache and Slstore into a backups folder. Then I ran the installer again. Running the uninstaller did not remove these files before - that's why we kept getting the error.

Yes CS6 works, and also please check out these notes by Adobe, about compatibility for Mavericks. I've got a CS6 myself and do not see anything going wrong with it. And since Adobe claims to be fully compatible with the products you name in your question you should be fine too.
