Adobe Application Manager Updates Photoshop CS5 to Camera Raw 7.1

  • Problem
  • Updated 4 years ago
I don’t have PS CS6 installed on this computer,I still have Photoshop CS5 and now Lightroom 4.1 ...

It seems that CR7.1 is available for Photoshop CS5,

when I go to Bridge CS5 and select Update, it runs Adobe Application Manager -> Updates, and shows the CR7.1 update.

But states the following “Update to the Camera Raw plug-in that ships with Photoshop CS6. Adds raw support for new camera models.”

Is this as designed ? Should I install it ? I do not and never have had Photoshop CS6 installed on this computer.

Also I don't find CR7 installed on this computer. No betas were ever installed. It might have been a mistake to Install InDesign CS6 though.

You have Bridge CS6 installed. Bridge does use the Camera Raw plugin.

Looks like you have Bridge CS6 installed which uses Camera Raw 7.x

My guess is you installed your InDesign CS6 from a CS6 Suite Installer which installed Bridge CS6, which makes ACR 7.1 an available update. Photoshop 5 won't be able to access 7.1, but Bridge CS6 should be able to invoke it.

It is NOT possible to NOT install Bridge CS6 (which I do not use) when IDD CS6 is installed.

There is NO option in the installer to deselect it. I mean Bridge has gotten way to ridiculous with a 'new' non-shared data version installed for CS5, CS5.5, and now CS6.

I fail to understand how I am expected to get any work done using Bridge when all it will do is regenerate preview after preview to use each separate version.

Clearly I should uninstall IDD CS6 to fix this problem then.

No Bridge CS6 cannot start Camera Raw 7:



I will need to uninstall IDD CS6 since Camera Raw 7 cannot be used from Bridge CS6 likely because there's no Photoshop CS6 on this machine.

AND the InDesign installer only installs the x32 version of Bridge !!! It doesn't install a x64 version. No doubt because IDD is still x32 BUT SO WHAT ? I guess it's ok that it doesn't completely work as expected then.
