I migrated my data and software to a new Macbook Air. Everything works except CS4, where a message says this element is "missing". How can I recover this?

You used the MacOS migration program?

Apple only recently fixed that to copy all the application support files (I think in 10.7.3).

You could manually copy the folders from one machine to another, or reinstall the software and reapply the updates.

I used the Migration Assistant feature in 10.7.4 and so far I haven't found any other oddities, but this one disables CS4. I am not sure where my installation disk is... so that makes it more complicated.

I suppose I could try to just "migrate" CS4, but I am not entirely clear whether that would over-ride the defective copy on my new Mac, or whether it would do a double installation. I am also not clear that one can transfer just one program, nor whether it would transfer as one packet, or whether a full installation has many parts, scattered throughout the Operating System files.

Thanks
