    Okay... so I've been installing and uninstalling Adobe Master Collection CS5 for like over an hour trying to figure out where I can actually install it.

    On default, Adobe install EVERYTHING towards the Application Files.
    So... my application file get spams with all these Adobe files which I extremely hate. But if I move them somewhere else, every file will get corrupted.

    There's no option on where I can actually place where I want to install it, such as, I want Adobe to install under my name.

    Look at screenshot.
    I cannot change application to somewhere else.

    Anybody got any ideas?
    Help?
    Thanks.

    You can install in another directory. I have mine installed into a subfolder called Adobe (inside Applications). Maybe try to click in the box where the install path is shown?

    Also, from your screenshot, I'm guessing you have Adobe CS5 files already installed which is why your can't change the installation path? If you haven't already, go to the Adobe website and get the uninstall cleaner tool, run it and reboot your machine before starting again.

    Note: There are some files that MUST reside in the Applications folder.

    question

    Can you install it on an external hard drive and run it from there?
