Since installing Yosemite, I cannot open Photoshop and get the following message every time I start my computer: To open "CS4ServiceManager" you need to install the legacy Java SE 6 runtime. Click the "More Info" to visit the Legacy Java SE 6 website to download.
I have done this (more than once), but the download makes no difference.
Are you please able advise what I should do so that I can continue to use Photoshop without having to upgrade. Thanks for providing an avenue to seek support.

You have to install the exact version of Java that Apple says to install, or Apple will keep nagging you to install that specific version and won't let you access your software.

Thanks so much! The link that was given in the past somehow didn't work or wasn't the exact one, so this time I Googled 'Legacy Java SE 6 download for mac' as suggested, and now it opens. Sounds so simple now, but appreciate the help.
