Moonraker,

I just realized the silly mistake I made.

I did not follow the directions. OMG. I had so much going on at one that I failed to follow 6 directions.

Sign. I deleted (uninstalled) it from my laptop.

So I'll try to reinstall it if that would work cry cry

PS: The steps are confusing. Help me cry cry

Okay! Are you saying you are using Microsoft Office 2013 32bit on a 64bit OS? It is 32bit on the image you posted of your Office 2013.

I see where the problem is now. Ok the imagine you are referring to is an imagine i took

during the early days of office 2013. I uninstalled that and i am now running the RTM version

in 64bit. Which is the imagine directly above this post. The imagine where i highlighted 64bit.

Now for the purpose of emphasis, i will post the screenshot again. Pls look carefully.

Wow, I caught you online today. Ope!!


moonraker:

Look at the steps. It's asking me to disconnect from the internet while I download it. How possible is that? not.

I need you to go over it with me. Please.

I already have it downloaded on my desktop, but I havent installed it yet.

Install instructions:

1. Install any Adobe CS6 trial as trial while disconnected from the net (or block outgoing connections)

(Means since you have it already on your desktop, disconnect your internet and do the installation

2. Do not enter an Adobe ID > Select 'Connect later'

(Pretty straight forward i hope.

3. Once installed, launch and quit each application at least once, blocking any outgoing connections as necessary.

( When you are done installing, launch every single app once while still being disconnected from the internet.

you would need to block this programs from accessing the internet in your firewall. Guessing you know how to do that


4. Replace (keep a copy of the original just in case) amtlib.framework in Application_Name.app/Contents/Frameworks/ with [k'ed] one.

This is for if things go crazy but they usually dont with my torrents so locate the path above ie (Application_Name.app/Contents/Frameworks/)

copy the amtlib.framework file from the torrent and paste it in the folder path above

5. Repeat for any other applications from the suite you have installed.

depending one how many apps u installed, do same step for each one.


6. Block outgoing connections.


(And remember, block adobe cS6 and its apps from accessing the internet) this is VERY IMPORTANT!!!



I know that this is a hassle to ffg but hey your getting it for free so erm why complain, right??


Let me know how it went!!!
Re: Windows 8: The Thread by Nobody: 5:59am On Dec 05, 2012
